We all love a fine champagne but what might a Krug Ambassade signfy? It sounds quite lush. A Krug Ambassade represents the spirit of the renowned Champagne House of Krug and is awarded to a select few of the world’s top restaurants based on the principles of prestige – a unique passion for gastronomy and wine, paired with a savoir-faire spirit.
Thus, Rumari at Raffles in Bali, Indonesia has passed the test and is now considered by Krug as a culinary destination where gastronomic excellence meets the finest champagnes.
Krug’s story began in Reims in 1843 with Joseph Krug, a visionary non-conformist with an uncompromising philosophy. Having understood that the true essence of Champagne is pleasure itself, his dream was to craft the very best Champagne he could offer, every single year, regardless of annual variations in climate.
Six generations of the Krug family have perpetuated this dream, enriching the founder’s vision and savoir-faire. The connection with Rumari has now been fused. Led by Executive Chef Gaetan Biesuz, the restaurant presents the finest Indonesian dishes in contemporary style at Rumari perched on the cusp of Jimbaran Bay.
Rumari joins JAAN by Kirk Westaway at Swissôtel The Stamford, Singapore’s very first Krug restaurant Ambassade, and Accor’s first venue in the region to receive this prestigious title in 2016.
Helmed by Chef Westaway, the two-Michelin star restaurant offers an elevated reinterpretation of British gastronomy through a modern and innovative culinary lens.
To celebrate with Rumari you can sup on a Krug Degustation Dinner available at any of Raffles resort’s dining destinations: The Purnama, The Secret Cave or The Farm Terrace.
This indulgent experience can be booked when staying at the Raffles Bali. The Exquisite Opening Experience package is now on offer and features two nights stay at the Hilltop Panoramic Pool Villa, including return airport transfer, daily a la carte breakfast at Rumari, the Sanctuary Escape spa experience for 150 minutes, an indulgent Champagne Cabana Experience accompanied by elegant Balinese dancers performance, and KRUG Degustation Dinner at Rumari.
