Dining

Western and Indonesian dishes feature on The Anandita’s extensive suggestion menu and guests can look forward to some wonderful fresh fish and locally harvested Lombok produce.

Our chef delights in preparing gourmet cuisine from all corners of the world, including Indonesian, Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Indian, as well as European – in particular French and Italian.  Whether you want to try our signature dishes – including seared tuna on a bed of mashed broccoli with a red wine sauce, or our famous chocolate fondant – or just want a homemade crispy pizza and French fries for the kids, The Anandita is the place to be.  The health conscious will find a broad range of steamed vegetables and grilled fish, while our bar serves fresh tropical fruit juices or vitality mixed mocktails.  Our chef prides himself on his attention to detail and the quality of his food and ingredients.  Our red meat is imported from New Zealand, fish is locally procured and many of the wines served at the villa originate from France or Australia.

Throughout your stay, our staff will strive to help you create enduring memories by organising soirées to mark special occasions such as birthdays and parties. Such events can include your own fireworks from the beach, live bands and traditional dance performances.  Our usual musicians include a pianist and two singers, who can entertain you with a variety of jazz and pop music. We can also arrange a traditional Sasak night, complete with Sasak food, a gamelan band and dancers.

Dinners can be enjoyed in our open-sided dining room, by the pool, on the lawn or even on the moonlit beach.

Suggestion menus are available for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as a special all inclusive* meal package encompassing breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea.  It is highly recommended that guests meet with the villa manager and cook at the start of their stay to discuss food likes and dislikes, special dietary needs and meal schedules. It is also necessary to discuss meals in advance (ideally 24 hours) to allow the cook the time required to prepare and provision as the villa is a long way from the nearest supermarket.

All food and beverage items selected from the suggestion menu are charged at cost price, plus an additional 20% handling fee (subject to prevailing service charge and government tax).  In this instance, guests are requested to provide cash in advance; staff will then purchase the goods and keep receipts for reference.  Costs are tallied up at the end of the stay, but can be checked on a day-to-day basis if preferred.  When all inclusive* meal package is chosen, guests are requested to settle their account at the end for their stay.

*Includes mineral water and soft drinks.  Fresh fruit juices, alcoholic drinks and Nespresso coffee incur an additional charge.
