ADDRESS Jl. Taman Ganesha No.9, Seminyak, Kec. Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung (Location Map)
OPENING HOURS 7am – 10pm Daily
Stepping into Seasalt transports you to a sophisticated coastal property dominated by ocean hues and warm décor. The open kitchen’s brightness, the changing patterns of light and shadow on the outside decks throughout the day, and the feel of the ocean air all contribute to a fantastic sense of openness and connection to the ocean for a comfortable coastal eating experience.
Seasalt sources wild-caught and ethically harvested seafood from the oceans of Indonesia, with a focus on sustainability. Traditional organic Kusamba sea salt from East Bali is used to season dishes, where a tiny group of salt producers continues a centuries-old tradition of making 100% natural salt by sun and wind evaporation.
Tanaman is a unique dining experience founded on a reverence for plants that elevates them to the divine. Chef Dommy Hammond honors each humble item, from root to fruit, and metamorphoses Indonesia’s lush, tropical flora and botanicals into their full gastronomic potential, with not a single cell wasted. Tanaman is a futuristic multi-sensory restaurant where diners are invited on a cosmic plant-fueled journey through provocative meals and lively cocktails.
Each dinner is inspired by one of the five elements: air, fire, earth, water, and space, and uses solely plants—along with a wild assortment of mushrooms—to create dishes whose components are unrecognizable in the colorful presentations. Chef Dom will experiment with dehydration and fermentation, infusion, marination, and smoking. Each course is served with extensive storytelling that explains not only the fanciful end result but also the trip each element made along the way and is paired with an equally attentive cocktail.
