Breakfast @ CIRE

Does paradise exist? If it does, it’s very possibly in Alila Villas Uluwatu. The luxury resort is perched on limestone cliffs, overlooking the vast Indian Ocean. I’ll focus on the food first before blogging on our villa experience and resort facilities (typical foodie hey).

CIRE’s a la carte buffet breakfast offers only the freshest ingredients, and the fine dining restaurant strives to use mostly organic and local produce. Plates are served in tasting portions, tapas style, allowing diners to experience a variety of flavours and textures. Menu changes daily and there’re so many options, it’s impossible to try everything.

Well, gluttony me did try, but failed. Hubby’s too stuffed (from helping me finish my ambitious ordering) to even smile.

You can choose to dine at the cabana by the cliff’s edge (limited seating) or at the restaurant, which is L-shaped overlooking either the ocean or the stunning pool and gardens.

As you can see, the breakfast situation at Alila Villas Uluwatu is nothing short of amazing. Service is unparallel too! For once I can sit back, relax and enjoy the excellent food and spectacular views, without having to get up to fetch food from a buffet line.
