Kuta, Indonesia (PressExposure) March 14, 2014 -- Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort is pleased to announce an exciting array of new food and beverage programming kicking off in March and running through May 2014. Offering a host of innovative epicurean concepts, this resort in Kuta (http://www.sheratonbalikuta.com/) will bring specialty menu offerings, wine events, educational culinary programming and entertainment for guests to enjoy this spring.
Connected to Bali's latest shopping destination - Beachwalk, a hub of retail, dining and entertainment that sits right in front of the Kuta's beach, the resort houses three dining venues where travelers can enjoy Sheraton's signature restaurants - the all-day dining FeastÂ® with its vibrant open-kitchen, Bene, a light-hearted Italian trattoria where guests can take in the mesmerizing views of the beautiful Bali Strait on the rooftop deck level and The Lounge, which offers a locally inspired cocktail menu, with open-air setting and Indian Ocean scenery.
"We're pleased to offer guests an array of enhanced culinary and beverage experiences for the spring season," said Dario Orsini, general manager of Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort. "Whether it's enjoying an interactive brunch in Feast to sipping flights of wine from far-off locales at The Lounge, guests will have an extraordinary selection of experiences to choose from during their stay."
Every Sunday, Feast will offer Kuta's Only Market Brunch from 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. and will provide an opportunity to enjoy an open-air market of shopping, delicious fare and interactive live cooking stations at these restaurants in Kuta (http://www.sheratonbalikuta.com/en/dining-at-sheraton). With an acoustic band, free-flowing Champagne, and activities for children and dogs, this experience has a little something for everyone. In addition, guests can wind down and enjoy the weekend with the sounds of Deephouse DJ and extended hours until 2:00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.
Guests at Bene will have the opportunity to indulge in a special menu offering this spring along with an educational lesson in pasta from the restaurant's executive chef. Offered nightly from 6:00 p.m. until close, the Italian "Pastable" menu provides diners with a chance to enjoy an Italian style "rijsttafel" feast. Originally brought to Indonesia by Dutch colonists, rijsttafel is a meal consisting of many small plates varying in taste profiles and textures. Traditionally featuring Indonesian dishes, Bene's Italian "Pastable" menu will offer 12 Italian tasting size dishes allowing diners an overview of Roman-born Executive Chef Rossano Renzelli's cuisine. For those looking to expand their culinary knowledge, Chef Renzelli will also offer "Pastatale" this season. Offered nightly beginning at 6 p.m., this culinary offering will showcase the art of housemade pasta. In this "pastatale" campaign, our Executive Chef will tell the story about authentic Italian pasta. Hundred menus of pasta will be the main point of this campaign and the story of each pasta will be revealed in Bene soon.
Following the popularity of Instagram, guests can now look through our delicious Bene dishes on the application to select their menu choices. The Instabene campaign will allow guests to search for #BeneBaliMenu and browse through tempting food pictures. Guests are encouraged to upload their food photos on Instagram as well with the format: name of the food // price // taste // #benebalimenu. In return, Bene will give one jar of Scarpetta sauce and bread with the secret sauce recipe for the pasta inside (Scarpetta: Italian eating tradition).
Additionally, guests can relax and unwind at The Lounge, a spectacular indoor/outdoor space overlooking the Indian Ocean. New this spring is Social Hour - Wines of the World, which will provide a chance to explore selections from across five continents. Social Hour will run nightly from 5:00-7:00 p.m.
Cocktail enthusiasts can also enjoy creative libations in The Lounge including the specially-concocted cocktail by New York mixologist Joseph Boroski. Expand your drinking experience with our new Gin & Tonic - Next Level. Try our winning creation or for an added bonus, personalize your gin & tonic with selections of eight house pours and premium gins, and seasonal choices of enhancer.
