The Nusa Dua’s majestic beachfront resort has done it again. After the successes of Koral Restaurant and Izakaya by OKU, The Apurva Kempinski Bali just opened another dining destination this month. Bai Yun, which means “white cloud” in Mandarin, encourages conviviality and togetherness in an elegant setting. After all, there is no better way to bring your family or friends together than an intimate hot pot dining experience.

Situated near the reception area, Bai Yun’s dark interior is designed in contemporary Chinese flair. The communal round tables with lazy susans, wicker-backed elbow dining chairs, thick carpet which evokes floating steam from the hot pots create the perfect backdrop for a memorable dinner. True to Kempinski White Glove Services guideline, tables are safely distanced from one another and you will be thrilled to find out that each guest receives their own individual hot pot. Apart from the obvious hygiene benefit, there is no more need for debate over soup preferences.
