A New Look for Intercontinental Bali’s Resort’s ‘Taman Gita’ Breakfast Venue

June 20, 2018 Resort News No Comments Email Email

InterContinental Bali Resort’s is pleased to reveal the new-look Taman Gita, the Resort’s main breakfast restaurant. This cool, air-conditioned venue with its high ceiling and monumental pillars, as well as its alfresco terrace, has recently undergone a complete makeover and has now reopened its mighty entrance doors to introduce an elegant, modern interior accented with Balinese ornaments. The impressive design is the innovation of the Singapore-based ‘James Park Associates’ (JPA), a renowned design consultancy that has an extensive knowledge of Bali and Indonesia, and specialises in creating exceptional interiors that pay homage to the location.

Taman Gita now flaunts a fresh and exciting new plumage fashioned in earthy shades of olive, cinnamon, rust, chocolate, charcoal, teal, grey and black, meticulously wrapped up within the sleek symmetry of its contemporary architectural design. Conceived to respect the Balinese culture, the local context, and the existing architecture and artwork, each adjoining area from the entrance to the indoor dining space, to the buffet to the deli to the outdoor dining area has been cleverly designed to generate a uniquely different mood. Sustainable timbers and stone, including teak, bamboo, volcanic lava stone and other local materials, as well as chair fabrics and finishes are presented in a myriad of textures and patterns such as the all-pervasive leaf vein structures. The ceiling, meanwhile, mirrors the ash grey and brown geometrical floor pattern with square sections framed by wooden beams housing recessed lighting, complemented by ring pendant lamps that illuminate the tables from above. The grand entranceway, which is incorporated within a Balinese split gateway – a theme that extends into the interior – is marked with a flourish by a pendulous bamboo lighting installation, reminiscent of a set of Balinese wind-chimes.

Designer tables and chairs are crafted in rich dark wood with marble-topped finishes in the raised floor and banquette-seating areas, while solid timber slatted tables spill across the outdoor terrace. Banquettes feature Spanish-style lumbar cushions, which are suspended from a pole to ensure the optimum position for the back comfort of the guests, and cosy two-seater and four-seater sofas await breakfast guests in the entrance bay and the triangle bay, coordinated with mood lighting from classic table lamps. In the buffet and deli areas, wall spaces are filled with shelves and alcoves showcasing Balinese artefacts; glass-fronted cooler cabinets are stocked with cold cuts and other goodies; tilted breadboards and wooden shelves display a wide selection of breads, and wooden crates are laden with freshly baked bread rolls above a tri-coloured hexagonal tiled floor. Finally, ‘the heavenly garden of music’, which is the meaning of the name ‘Taman Gita’ has not been forgotten –  the much-loved storyboard of wall plaques featuring pairs, trios and groups of musicians playing all the instruments of a gamelan orchestra amid the flowers and trees of a divine garden, endures as before, in perfect harmony with its contemporary new environment.

Taman Gita is the resort’s main breakfast venue, with a capacity for 130 guests indoors and another 52 guests on the outside terrace, while also allowing for an effective flow. The restaurant serves an extensive buffet-style breakfast, which offers a vast choice of dishes to suit all tastes, including Indonesian, Western and Asian hot and cold specialties, an egg station for à la minute egg dishes, a meat carvery, freshly-baked pastries and breads, as well as an espresso coffee station, fresh fruit and vegetable juice bar and more.
