Bali Hotel Photos and Unique Tropical Fruits

Besides Bali Hotel Photos, the unique and diverse tropical fruits found in Indonesia are worth to remember and posted as an interesting holiday souvenir. Some of these fruits can be bought in cooler countries or taken along in dry form. 

  1. Durian or Duren; the king of rain forest fruit; it smells very bad but fans can’t get enough of it
  2. Mangosteen or Manggis; thick reddish skin containing a whitish mandarin like cluster; the skin is manufactured into capsules taken as a supplement to improve health and immune system
  3. Salak or Snake Skin Fruit; formerly typical Bali fruit today grown also in Yogyakarta
  4. Rambutan; hairy bright red fruit resembles the Litchi 
  5. Jambu; a relative of the clove, allspice and the guava; most commonly eaten varieties: Jumbu Bol, Jambu Mawar, Jambu Air, Jambu Jambolan, Jambu Air Rhio, and Jambu Batu
  6. Sirsak; an odd-shaped fruit with green skin and white flesh and seeds makes delicious jus 
  7. Buah Nangka or Jack Fruit; a huge spiky fruit that grows on the stems of trees; the fruit segments are delicious (although the aroma might be strange) is a good source of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. 
  8. Tamarillo or Tree Tomato or Terong Belanda can be bought fresh or as a syrup to sweeten juices
  9. Kolang-Kaling or buah atap is the seed of a palm fruit that is grilled, peeled and fermented; it is added to shaved ice dishes or fruit cocktails especially for opening the fast during Ramadan
  10. Banana; come in many different shapes, sizes and colors; some need to be cooked before eating, some are favorites for frying or baking and some are used to help digestion; eat Pisang Ambon if you have difficulties going to the toilet; if you go too often then avoid those and eat either Pisang Mas or Pisang Raja. 
  11. Kelapa Muda or Coconut; the young fruit is great for hydrating, it is slightly sweet and contains many beneficial minerals that can be absorbed by the body very fast. The ripe fruit yields coconut flesh that is either dried or soaked in water to extract the creamy substance to thicken sauces.  
  12. Mangoes; many varieties delicious and sweet when eaten ripe; also used in pickles, preserves, and chutneys
  13. Pineapple or Nanas 
  14. Papaya 

See Bali Hotel Photos; They Serve Local Tropical Fruit

Bali foods on breakfast buffets in hotels in Bali are plentiful and legendary! (See Bali photos) Of course, the higher up on the star rating scale they are, the more choices from East and West you will find. A must in our health-conscious era is fruit. Balinese fruits are simply cut and put on a plate or mixed in various mixed dishes like fruit salads or cendols etc. Yogurt and fruit are a favorite and of course the Swiss Birchermuesli. You will also find clear soups, and porridge kind of delicacies to try.

The following hotels serve fabulous breakfast buffets: TS Suites in Seminyak a 4 star hotel; our longtime favorite Prama Sanur Beach; the 4 Seasons in Jimbaran; the Pan Pacific at Tanah Lot  and many more
