The November 2001 edition of Travel & Leisure magazine has published its readers' poll of the world's best food. As anyone who has visited the island of Bali might expect, our island ranked high in the world-wide division and in Asia.
The Top Hotels for Food Overall
Bali's Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay ranked 3rd among all hotels worldwide after the top-ranked Inn at Little Washington in Washington, Virginia and the 2nd place Mansion on Turtle Creek in Dallas, Texas.
The Top Hotels for Food in Asia
Bali netted two of the top five ranks of Asia's best hotels for food. 1st place was awarded to the Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay; 2nd place to the Four Seasons Hotel, Singapore; 3rd place The Oriental, Bangkok; 4th place the Ritz Carlton, Bali; and 5th The Peninsula, Hong Kong.
Receiving special mention in Travel & Leisure's coverage was the Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay's Taman Wantilan dining room and the Resort's Executive Chef Marc Miron. The readers heaped special praise on the Wantilan's signature dish of crisp lobster spring rolls with two sauces and their Balinese spiced grilled snapper in banana leaf.
With one hotel ranked as number three in the world for food and two in Asia's top five - visiting the island of Bali is definitely a matter of good taste.
