Starfish Bloo is a casual, elegant seaside restaurant open for breakfast, lunch, Sunday brunch and dinner. The restaurant offers Pan-Asian culinary journey curated by Australian celebrity Chef de Cuisine Matthew McCool with seductive views of the Indian Ocean.
Designed by Poole Associates Private Limited, Starfish Bloo’s design was inspired by the Balinese fishing lifestyle and features Six oversized booths evoking local lobster traps dominate the room that is punctuated by turquoise resin columns in an abstracted starfish shape. Bakau poles are lashed to the ceiling and extensive timber decks give the space a casual yet smart beach-side atmosphere. Perimeter walls are clad with white Palimanan stone and recycled slump glass table tops add an expression of ice.
