A Royal Affair: The St. Regis Bali Resort
If you are up for something luxurious and decadent, this five-star hotel offers two selections that are out of this world. Feeling like royalty? Have canapes such as foie gras, caviar and oysters with your bubbly at the Astor Diamond Champagne Brunch. Otherwise, you might prefer to be served complimentary aperitifs at the Boneka Jazz Sunday Brunch, where you will savour their epicurean buffet that features an outdoor grill with the catch-of-the-day.

What a Sunday: Starfish Bloo at W Bali
You can be sure to trust W when it comes to offering you their brunch selection. Set in Seminyak, you will have brunch overlooking the ocean while being spoilt for choice at their buffet table. The abundance of seafood, local delights such as babi guling, sushi and sashimi to roast and desserts, will make you wish you came with more than one stomach.
Eating Clean: Glow at COMO Shambhala Estate
Another excellent way to spend your Sunday, especially if you take good care of what goes down your stomach. The organic delights do not compromise when it comes to selection or taste. You have tiger prawns, lamb skewers, smoked salmon and a fabulous line of desserts that will go down into your tummy guilt-free. Well, almost!

Rustic Vibes: Watercress Café
Fancy an all-day rustic breakfast? Watercress Bali’s menu is inspired by the owner’s roots in Byron Bay. Poached eggs over crunchy corn fritters, rosemary butter mushrooms and peppery rocket with goats cheese, or free-range eggs with baked beans and Spanish chorizos – you get the drift. They also serve the famed Revolver Espresso for coffee fixes.
