Gathering family and friends for a fabulous home-cooked meal prepared by your own private chef is one of the many highlights of an Elite Havens’ vacation—guests get to enjoy delicious breakfasts, leisurely lunches and decadent dinners without lifting a finger, or even leaving the villa. Villa Nica’s accomplished professional chef is on hand to whip up meals from an imaginative menu covering Indonesian, Asian and international dishes, as well as vegetarian meals and children’s favourites— all served family-style. He is happy to receive special requests and tailor meals to meet special dietary needs and is a dab hand at sizzling seafood barbecues. It’s best to discuss your requirements the evening before or at breakfast, to give the kitchen team time to shop for the freshest ingredients.
The immense 4.4-metre merbau wood table dominating the dining room lends itself to convivial meals where conversation flows freely while butlers discreetly recharge your glass. Kickstart your day with a hearty breakfast and a soundscape of cascading water and birdsong. At night, close the doors, light the candles, and indulge in a gourmet multi-course dinner in air-conditioned comfort. In between, enjoy a smoothie or salad at the swim-up bar, and sunset cocktails in the sunken pool lounge.
