The impending opening of Jamie’s Italian in Bali in 2015 has our tongues wagging and taste buds tingling in anticipation. The Jamie Oliver group of family-friendly Italian eateries, together with Hotel Properties Limited (HPL), has their eyes set on our famous Kuta Beach, next to Hard Rock Hotel Bali.
The Naked Chef collaborated with his Italian mentor, chef Gennaro Contaldo, to open his first Jamie’s Italian in 2008 in Oxford, England, serving food that evoked their childhood memories. Today, Jamie’s Italian has more than 40 global outlets, winning international fans over with its delicious, affordable dishes and friendly, personable service.
Think rustic, authentic Italian dishes revamped with Jamie’s signature twists, using fresh, sustainable ingredients from superior producers and suppliers in the region, complemented with a unique design befitting of its stunning beachfront location.
“I’m really excited at the prospect of bringing Jamie’s Italian to Kuta Beach in Bali. We’re thrilled to be working with HPL again, who are absolutely fantastic partners. Beautiful food and some really amazing cocktails coupled with sun, sand and sea – what’s not to love?” says Jamie Oliver.
We simply can’t wait to have Jamie’s footprints on the island!
