A series of pop up through Maya’s Van across the island’s hottest spots offers a taste of the restaurant’s pantry-styled concept ahead of its opening at Kimpton Naranta Bali
This December, Maya’s Pantry will launch an elevated food truck, Maya’s Van, to introduce its restaurant concept to local islanders. Maya’s Van will travel around the island on some of Bali’s most vibrant beach spots. Through this series of pop up, guests will get a taste of the all-day feel-good cuisine from Maya’s Pantry when Kimpton Naranta Bali opens in Q1 2022.
A hub of freeform relaxation, Maya’s Pantry will delight with wholesome, fresh flavours overlooking stunning island views in Nusa Dua. An interactive pantry concept set in a warm, relaxing and welcoming space, guests will interact with the chefs across its open kitchens while browsing homemade fare and organic nourishment for a sense of family-styled dining.
Guests will be able to choose an array of delicious homemade selections such as gluten-free and sugar-free cakes and pastries, organic slow pressed juices, homemade sauces, jams and sambals, vegan and classic comfort foods. The variety of beverages will include healthy and cleansing drinks, coffee from locally-sourced beans from Kintamani, homemade Maya’s kombucha, and super food add-ons such as spirulina, bee pollen, flax seeds, moringa and protein powder.
“Cutting edge Restaurant & Bar programming plays a big part in Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants across the world. Maya’s Van is part of our ramp up towards the opening of our first Kimpton resort in Indonesia, slated for Q1 2022. The new resort under IHG’s luxury boutique brand will offer Kimpton’s signature perks including a nightly-hosted Social Hour, the brand’s industry-leading pet-friendly attitude, and an approachable luxury experience fuelled by a team who champions heartfelt, human connections,” said Simon Dornan, General Manager, Kimpton Naranta Bali.
“Every Kimpton restaurant and bar are created independent from the hotel, providing a space that is warm, welcoming and inspiring with incredible cuisine and forward-thinking cocktails. Whilst Maya’s Pantry is not yet opened, taking Maya’s Van around Bali will allow guests a taste of what’s to come when Kimpton Naranta Bali opens in 2022. Kimpton Naranta Bali brings barefoot luxury to Nusa Dua and is rooted in laidback, restorative indulgence. We will focus on incorporating local elements into the restaurant experience – from décor to sourcing ingredients and trends reflective of our location. Each of our five restaurants and bars will introduce original concepts, from wholesome cuisine to craft cocktails, to the décor and ambiance, and create a truly immersive experience for our guests,” said Matthew McCool,
Director of Culinary and Food & Beverage, Kimpton Naranta Bali.
As an extension of Maya’s Pantry, Maya’s Van will move across Bali to select locations – filled with mouth-watering easy to go bites and drinks that are perfect to be enjoyed in a laidback surrounding. During sunset hours, be tempted by Maya’s Burger, a milk bun with grass-fed beef patty, bacon, honey ham, grilled pineapple, jack cheese and BBQ sauce or, choose from the vibrant Nourishment Bowl and other wellness inspired vegan nourishment bowls. On Sunday mornings until noon, Maya’s Van will serve its Bali Brekkie Bowl of coconut yoghurt, moringa and fresh fruits, Bacon & Egg Roll or the Peanut Butter Oatmeal and handcrafted single origin coffee from Tanamera Coffee, perfect for kick-starting a day full of self-care.
From its collaboration with Campari Group comes a drink selection that features a bevy of signature concoctions made with Skyy Vodka, Bulldog Gin and Aperol. For a dash of freshness, Maya’s Van offers Leafy Green, a showstopper made with Skyy vodka-based mix with cucumber, celery, cilantro, spring onion, ginger, and lemon, or sip on classic drinks such G&A, a Bulldog gin-based cocktail with an element of surprise fusing chamomile, cucumber, sea salt, and apple cider.
Maya’s Van will also see Kimpton Naranta Bali’s own Spiritual Guru, Ida Bagus Surya be on location. Whilst waiting for their bites and drinks, guests will be able to choose a 15-minute complimentary palm reading, numerology, or tarot reading by the renowned Guru. A minimum spend of IDR 250,000 is required.
