Laut Biru’s sleek, all-white design sits elegantly in the middle of a verdant garden just steps away from the Lombok coast. If you want to go al fresco, dine at the beach’s seating area shaded by lush trees. Laut Biru, meaning blue ocean, does not do justice to the idyllic view of Selong Belanak where this restaurant sits. Relatively quiet compared to Kuta and Senggigi, this coast is amazingly pristine with gorgeous blue hues and rolling hills hugging the bay. The restaurant serves a wide range of Western, Asian and Indonesian cuisine. Try the Rage Rajang, which is Lombok’s traditional spicy fish meal.
