At The Deck Cafe & Bar at Batu Karang Lembongan Resort & Day Spa, we like to make sure everyone is having a good time with great cocktails and an unforgettable view. However it is also very important to us to help keep our guests healthy as well as happy, and one way we can help do that is with our kombucha! A fermented tea, kombucha has many health benefits, & as our supplier Happy Kombucha Secret Lab informs, “Inspired by the tradition born in China more than 2000 years ago. Kombucha is rich in health promoting vitamins, enzymes and acids. Regular consumption can boost immunity and increase energy while aiding the liver to detox, rehydrate the body and reduce wrinkles.” Seems like a no-brainer, right? Where it gets even better, we use recycled glass bottles for delivery, and is available in many delicious flavours….yummm! Feeling like a little breakfast spike on your holiday? Well there’s no harm in adding a cheeky shot of vodka to your kombucha – it’s still a healthy drink, and we definitely don’t judge. So please join us day or night at our beautiful venue here on the rocks of Nusa Lembongan for a little healthy kick to add some energy to your day 🙂 @happykombuchasecretlab

At The Deck Cafe & Bar at Batu Karang Lembongan Resort & Day Spa, it is sometimes fun to let the cat out of the bag, and share some of the secrets to our success. And one of those (not so big) secrets to the success of our cocktail menus, is our character of an Italian mixologist, Luca. Born and raised in a small Italian village called Villa Musone, or more widely known is Ancona, Luca comes from a family who works very closely with the Church with his mother being a teacher of theology and father working at the large church in Loreto (part of Ancona). After pursuing his own path studying Accounting, Luca quickly learned this was not for him, and went for a professional life behind the bar (a few shades away from his family!). His first bar job was at the local water park, where he then worked as Bar Manager for one of the Heieneken Green Stages in Italy, then as a Barista/Bartender at La Dolce Vita in Porto Recanti. At 30 years old, Luca followed his heart to New Zealand, where his mixology skills got serious at Andiamo’s, learning from the best of the best. Once he tightened up his skills, Luca then moved back to Florence where he worked at the rooftop bar of the famous Ferragamo Lungarno Collection, then finally on to London working at The Den in Soho where he just got better and better. Luca then wanted to get out of the hustle and bustle, and work on his surfing skills where he found us on Nusa Lembongan and he has not looked back since. Why Lembongan? 300 reasons, he says. He loves the paradise, his boss, being challenged every day, and working in a place where he says not knowing something is not a problem, but not wanting to learn something is a problem. Luca feels the most rewarding part of his job is seeing the staff, after months and months of training, finally shake the cocktails to his standard, when they actually “get it” – and that is what puts a smile on his face. Being The Negroni master, his recipe process always starts with one of the basics, and refines it using ingredients people wouldn’t normally think of. Please come visit us for some of Luca’s charismatic personality and unmistakably top-notch cocktails from a master of the art!

The Balinese are never short of a ceremony or a celebration, and this coming April 5 marks the start of one of the most important of the Balinese Hindu holidays of the year. At Batu Karang Lembongan Resort & Day Spa, The Deck Cafe & Bar, Muntigs Bar & Restaurant, The Howff Whisky, Gin, & Wine Bar, & Lulur Spa, we are very proud to honour the local traditions of Galungan. Galungan is the festival that celebrates Dharma’s victory over Adharma (good over evil), the time during the 210-day Balinese calendar when the ancestral spirits visit the Earth. During the 10 day period, the family must be hospitable to the spirits through rituals of prayers and offerings to welcome the spirits to the material realm. Also lining the streets are the “penjor” (bamboo poles with offerings hanging from the ends).

The festival is marked at the end of the 10 days with Kuningan, when the ancestral spirits leave the Earth on April 15. Galungan and Kuningan on Nusa Lembongan are full of colour, ritual, and celebration, and should you wish to participate in any of the local festivities, please do not hesitate to ask any of our staff on your visit with us. And enjoy!
