Where Ancient 300 Years Old Temple Meets Red Skies Over the Indian Ocean

“Through Ji Terrace by The Sea, we would like to offer simply the very best Japanese & Asian influenced cuisine, the finest Asian-inspired cocktails, to give guests a beautiful, exotic experience Canggu & Bali have to offer; in a journey through ancient Japan, Indonesia, India, Thailand & South East Asian countries,” says Lucienne Anhar, from the owning family of Tugu Hotels & Restaurants Group.


Ji Terrace by The Sea, with 180 degrees undisturbed views over the sparkling Indian Ocean and Canggu Beach, celebrates the exotic beauty of the sensuous, mysterious Asia. It is a fusion of ancient and contemporary Asian cultures, with rich, deep colors inspired by the crimson sky and red sunsets that we see everyday from this terrace.


Ji Terrace by The Sea carries the spirit of Tugu properties, which celebrate the rich cultural heritage and ancient history & legends through romantic atmosphere, interior and beautiful arts from ancient Indonesia and Asia, but what is different here is that the bohemian spirit of Canggu is very much alive. Beautiful statue of goddess of Durga from Rajasthan, centuries old urn from the Babah Peranakan family in Lasem, Java, Tibetan Mahakala masks, intricate Balinese Barong heads and many more artworks transport guests to a magical world of ancient kingdoms and quixotic legends, while seducing through beautiful Indian lanterns and sensuous beats of the best DJs on the island.



The food served at Ji at Bale Sutra Temple 1706 and Ji Terrace by The Sea on the rooftop is a modern interpretation of these ancient cultures. Here, our team of Japanese & Asian-trained chefs, led by Chef Colin Buchan during the creation of the menu (previously chef of Gordon Ramsay restaurants in London, Jason Atherton’s Pollen in Singapore, and personal chef to David and Victoria Beckham), had fun experimenting with creating dishes that are contemporary & playful, with focus on the exploration of exotic flavors from Japan as well as various Asian cuisines mentioned above: Indonesian, Indian, Thai as well as other Southeast Asian. Using only the freshest local produce, the aim is to create an interesting fusion of flavors that are at the same time comforting, homey and heartwarming.



The cocktails take a similar inspiration as the food – with Asian infusions of our premium spirits, the cocktails at Ji Terrace by The Sea are 200% seductive in flavors as well as presentation. The smokin’ Coco Sexo, inspired by the volcanoes of Indonesia is guaranteed to wow all the other tables. The signature Tugu Gin & Tea, with premium gin infused with Javanese tea and other herbs, is an irresistible favorite that can only be found at Tugu Hotels & Restaurants.




The place celebrates Bali beach life to the fullest with a magical sea and a limitless red horizon as our backdrop, while watching one of the best surf on the island. For a night to remember for a long time, dine downstairs in the one and only most exquisite 311 years old Kang Xi period ancient red temple that had been dismantled and painstakingly reconstructed as a monument of the history of the Chinese Peranakan immigrants in Bali, surrounded by centuries old Chinese scroll paintings, black and white charcoal paintings of the last kings of Bali, a 3-meters tall Japanese Kannon goddess statue among others.

Amantaka Baby Elephant Experience



Spend the day exploring the Lao jungle beside baby elephant, Kit, and his mother, Tongkhun, and aunt, Mahn. After laboring in logging camps their entire lives, these gentle giants now spend their days splashing in the water, sauntering through the jungle, and nibbling to their heart’s content on the jungle greenery and treats guests can harvest specially for them.

Amantaka exclusively collaborates with MandaLao Elephant Sanctuary and Tours, an organisation focused on the care and comfort of the Laotian elephants, providing the animals with best medical care and practicing a non-riding policy for the gentle giants. MandaLao uses only positive reinforcement training, pioneered by their elephant master, Prasop Tipprasert.



In addition to an interactive day with Kit and his family, guests will enjoy a visit to the seldom seen Tad Kuang Song waterfall and ethnic Khmu village of Ban Hua Tad. MandaLao is committed to ensuring the protection of both rescued elephants and of the local Lao communities. In joining this experience, guests will not only support these efforts but embark on a once-in-a-lifetime experience.




Departing Amantaka at 7:45am, guests will be begin their half-day tour with a drive to the village of Xieng Lom, where the MandaLao camp is located. Along the way, the driver will stop at a local fruit market so guests can hand-select several delicious elephant treats. Upon arrival, the designated guide will provide guests with an overview of elephant behavior, the MandaLao training techniques with baby Kit, and how best to interact with him, his mom and aunt.

A quick boat ride across the Nam Khan River will deliver guests to the eagerly awaiting elephants. During the initial meeting, guests are encouraged to interact with and feed them — a sure-fire way to ensure instant friendship. Trying to sneak your treat past Tongkhun and give it to Kit can often be a challenge!

The spa excursion involves using traditional brushes and soaps collected in the jungle are used to scrub down and rinse the elephants before beginning the therapeutic two-hour trek. Guests can also join in and help the elephants in the bathing process and delight in their pure enjoyment of being in the river.




After crossing through a stretch of traditional Lao gardens guests will arrive at the jungle-covered Huay Nok stream. As they walk alongside the elephants and crisscross through the cool water, guests will experience a profound sense of understanding, respect and caring for these amazing animals. Additionally, the guide will illustrate to guests how MandaLao training techniques differ from traditional methods and how guests are supporting baby Kit’s development.

Before Kit, Tongkhun and Mahn head back to join their elephant family, guests will have some time to bid farewell to their new friends. Hugs and pats, a last treat, and some final pictures are welcome. Guests will then continue the trek to the tranquil Tad Kuang Song waterfall.

The calming experience will see guests enjoying in a beautiful ‘sala’, designed by Amantaka with traditional Lao snacks served.



After a bit of meditation time by the water, guests will take a short walk up to an ethnic Khmu Ban Hua Tad village. The Khmu comprise one of three major ethnic groups in Laos and traditionally live and farm in moderate to high elevations. The villagers are very welcoming and the guide is able to assist with translation for any questions.

Guests will then begin their trek back to the MandaLao camp, enjoying the scenery and varied environments and agricultural lands on the way. At MandaLao, guests will enjoy a fresh Laotian meal made with the camp’s organically grown produce. Guests are also encouraged to stroll through the organic gardens before returning to Amantaka.
