20+ Places to find the Best Floating Breakfasts in Bali

How do you like your eggs in the morning? Floating or not floating?

In the new era of social media, selfies and Instagram there has been a trend to up the idea of what luxury is. Indonesian Cities like Bali has been pivotal in this movement!

Here we’ve found already gorgeous hotels and resorts creating the groundbreaking dining concept called the ‘floating breakfast’. Bali has so much going for it already and this just adds another 100+ points to its leaderboard.

I can’t imagine that anyone was ever bored eating breakfast at a regular hotel but, just imagine this...

Refreshingly cool water lapping at your body, the wafting aroma of richly brewed coffee tickling your nose and the vibrant sight of a colourful board of scrumptious fruit, pastries, dense loaves and breakfast treats floating towards you.

Could there be anything more exciting than a floating breakfast in this tropical paradise?

The Bali floating breakfast is the one Bali bucket list experience that needs to be completed in addition to other must travel activities like lazing on the silken beaches, island hopping, temple visits, colourful cultural ceremonies and dramatic dances.

This may be the most extra thing you may do on your trip here, but despite this being totally for the gram, it’s a slice of pure luxury and deliciousness so why not spoil yourself – at least once

Instagramers from all over the world visit Bali only to take that love-to-hate photo of themselves enjoying their breakfast in their (often private) pool.

Can you actually say you’ve been to Bali if you don’t have the shot of your floating breakfast?

This is your Ultimate Floating Breakfast Bali List!

P.S: If you think this luxurious experience comes with a hefty price tag, you’d actually be wrong. This wonderful Bali bucket list experience carries a price range from 5 star-dripping luxury to affordable budget-friendly options equally worthy of your Instagram feed.

In this article I’ve outlined the best floating breakfast in Bali and where to find them.

So let’s slip into our swimwear, get your camera ready and dive into the Bali floating breakfast experiences that you need to try on your next trip to the Island of the Gods:
