Restaraunt and food at Bo’a Vida

We pride ourselves in providing fresh and healthy meals that are always sourced locally and as organically as possible. With the help of our local staff, we prepare a variety of dishes, mostly influenced by Indonesia’s large selection of herbs and spices that we are sure you will love. From fruits and vegetables to local meat or fish, we can guarantee your taste buds will be in for a treat.

Dining with a view

The restaurant is located on the cliff, overlooking the Bo’a wave with spectacular sunset views.

For breakfast, we usually serve coconut water, fruit bowls with homemade granola and coconut milk. After that, you can choose eggs in your preferred style served on our homemade bread or indulge in some banana pancakes with Rote’s delicious local honey.

In Bo’a Vida we usually provide two options that our guests can choose from. Most of our guests love the surprise factor and let us create a varied menu in which we try to fit all our specialties. If you have any dietary requirements, please contact us in advance and we will try to organise alternatives for you.
