Bali Asli, Real Culinary Experiences

Restaurant Cooking School Destination


As your holiday plans come together and the excitement of travelling to the beautiful Bali builds, I have some very important information for you. Make sure that you give yourself a week or more to organise your e-visa and your tourist levy payment. Organising and paying for these online is advisable to help you smooth out the arrival adventure that is the arrival hall at Denpasar! I have recently taken on that adventure and found all the correct government links for you to use. Just click here to be directed to our travel information page. Wishing you safe and adventurous travels

Where We Are

BALI ASLI is located in Gelumpang village, near the town of Amlapura, Karangasem regency, in the north east of Bali. It is about 2 hours drive from the airport, and 30 minutes from both Candidasa village and Amed village. BALI ASLI is nestled in the foot hills of Mount Agung, Bali’s most sacred mountain, surrounded by rice fields, there is not a building to be seen.

The Restaurant

BALI ASLI promotes Balinese cuisine and culture without exploiting it or it’s people. We embrace our community, supporting those who fish, farm and forage in the nearby fields, ocean and jungle. Our menu offers traditional Balinese food using an authentic Balinese style kitchen. We cook on wood-fired, mud brick stoves, allowing the real flavours of Bali to shine. Most of our ingredients are either grown in our garden, in our neighbour’s garden or purchased from the local market.

The Cooking School

The cooking school runs unique classes themed on “a day in the life of...” every class includes an adventure into local areas off the beaten track. Whether it is learning how to plant rice or plough with a cow, fishing in a jukung canoe and cooking on an open fire or making cocktails from cashew nut wine, our students always leave with fond memories and new skills to experiment with when they get home.
