Power up your morning with a daily market style breakfast buffet and if it happens to be Sunday, then you’re in for a treat. From 11am to 3pm on Sundays, you’ll get access to an oversized jacuzzi and enjoy an all you can eat breakfast buffet, a platter of chef’s signature brunch and a complementary Bloody Mary. This Breakfast Club menu priced at IDR 150k ++, a free flow package also is available.
Breakfast sorted? Then come on up to Play Bar on the 4th floor and PRESS PLAY to a rad day as the grills are hot and signature Martinis have been crafted and ready to go.

The Playbar’s menu – a mix of all day brunch fare, soup and salads, a variety of burgers and sandwiches, a few Indonesian classics such as mie goreng, Wayan’s nasi campur and mixed sate tucked in their main dishes menu along with beer battered fish n chips, sirloin steak and more. Their sharing platters offer a wide selection of foods from chicken wings to tacos. The dessert menu offers a few options and sweet enough to top it all off.
Their drinks menu is loaded with a wide range of juices and smoothies, and if you feel like a Bloody Mary or other alcoholic drink for brunch, checkout their well-calibrated cocktails and wine list and there’s a selection of beers and spirits to choose from.
Our lunch galore started with a real kick as a tray of signature Martinis were served before our eyes. This offer also includes manicures and is priced at IDR 100K on Thursdays 7pm onwards. I’m not sure about my male dining partner, but it was definitely music to my ears!

A generous bowl of Thai Beef Salad was set nicely at the center of the table and we both agreed this was something we could share – though I seemed to eat the whole bowl myself.
I loved the taste of the chicken wings they served next, the crunchiness of fried chicken base and the right amount of spiciness made it so good.
The Beef Burger was beautifully served with French fries and barbecue sauce. A perfectly made patty and juicy as can be was something we both agreed on our first bite, we were sold!
A slice of beet root revealed nicely amongst layers of fresh lettuce, tomato, caramelized onion, bacon and the fabulous flavored patty smothered in melted cheddar cheese – all crammed into sweet buns. Awesome!

We must say that Syariat (Ari) Widyanto, the head chef, who also previously worked as the executive Chef at one of the oldest Golf clubs in Indonesia – Dago Golf and Country club, successfully surprised us.
We also managed to discover the secret behind this awesome burger from the creator himself. Ari, who also worked as Chef de Partie at Jamie’s Italian shared his secret to making the perfect flavored patty. This lies in the dry aging method – where beef cuts were kept in a temperature controlled room for an average three days ( depends on types of beef ) to allow enzymes naturally present in the meat to break down the muscle tissue, resulting in improved texture and flavor.

Well it worked, as we’ve managed to stuff in the last bite without much of an effort and that tells a lot about the quality.
After all that has been cleared, a tray of what I thought was magnum ice creams that turned out to be brownies, arrived to the table. These brownie popsicles served with vanilla sauce were a perfect sweet finish to our meals.

Play Bar is quite spacious with a capacity for up to 500 guests, equipped with two bars and a live music stage to make sure the party is always on. They hosted 300 guests wearing different costumes at their Halloween party of mainly local visitors.
Sol house is situated on Jalan Sriwijaya, only a walking distance to Legian beach. Opened in February this year, Sol House Bali which is part of Melia Hotels International has managed to present itself with many qualities in Bali’s competitive hospitality industry and is ready to rise high among its existing competitors.
