Soleil at The Mulia Bali, Sunday Brunch At Its Best!

Soleil, meaning ‘sun’ in French is a trendy restaurant in Bali, known for its Sunday Brunch. Soleil is set in a stunning location of the beach side of the ultra-luxury Mulia Hotels and Resorts, selected as one of the best hotels and resorts in the world by Conde Nast in 2015. 


Rather than echo the typical Balinese hut style, the Mulia brings something more majestic to the island of Gods. Although strongly influenced by Balinese architecture and style, it also embodies grandeur Greek architecture with every fine detail, providing unrivalled luxury and beauty upon arriving at the magnificent precinct.

Upon your arrival to the hotel, you will be greeted by their open, vast yet inviting lobby that overlooks the Indian Ocean. The grand lobby immediately indicates the size of The Mulia; sets on 30 hectares of land, the hotel comprises of 111 villa suites, 526 rooms of Mulia Resort and 108 stand-alone villas. 



It took a quite a long, but pleasant stroll from the main lobby to the Soleil. With the lobby located two levels above the Soleil located on level 1 of the beach side resort, we approached the restaurant via a series of extravagant staircases. After that, we strolled through their extravagant tropical gardens with numerous pools and Greek inspired statues.

Upon our arrival to Soleil, one of the wait staff greeted us and escorted us to the concierge table under the shade of a parasol to escape the Bali heat. From there, we were escorted to our table and introduced to our waiter for the day. 



Soleil restaurant consists of two identical buildings side by side, with a pond and some outdoors seating in the middle looking over the pool and the Indian Ocean. The restaurant spans a large area and while tropical and luxurious, it expresses French-influence and Balinese tradition. All of the columns are decorated with panelling and exotic lampshades, while the ceiling ornaments craft a fluent amalgamation between traditional Bali and the modern France. The overall look is luxurious, airy, vast, green and welcoming.








Soleil’s use of colours indicates the setting was inspired by Greek summer beaches, using hues of white, light brown, and brass. To maintain the French style, they utilise a few types of Louis XVI dining chairs within the premise.

Soleil Sunday brunch comes in two options; the alcoholic brunch and the non-alcoholic brunch. Both brunch options offer an endless option of buffet and fresh grills, as well as a full a-la carte menu. On top of that, there’s also chef’s choice that is occasionally offered. 


Deciding to go with the non-alcoholic options, we received a vast range of fruity mocktails, which were simply delightful. My personal favourite was their Iced Tea with Lychee option. 

The presentation of their dishes is arguably the best in Bali. On top of that, once the wait staff spot when the plates are taken away by the patrons, they replace it almost immediately.

With a stunning setting and high quality present in all aspects of the restaurant, Soleil gives you a good reason to book at least 2 weeks in advance for this highly popular Sunday Brunch spot. It’s luxury at its sparkling best!
