Bale Kokok Pletok

The name ‘Kokok Pletok’ is derived from the sound that the rooster makes, and the extraordinarily long roof is decorated by a giant Lombok rooster that can be seen from the sea and miles away.

At Tugu Lombok, where the heart leads is where one dines day and night. One may choose any of the available dining venues described below, or pick a most favorite romantic spot anywhere – in the garden, at the quiet beach, private dining pavilion for two above the lotus pond and so on…only surrounded by nature, torches and candle lights.

Bale Kokok Pletok Open Dining Hall
A rustic open air space with 15 meter tall thatched ceiling overlooking the ocean, lotus ponds and the tropical landscape, serving fine international, Asian-tinged, oriental and authentic Indonesian cuisine for which Tugu is renown. The name ‘Kokok Pletok’ is derived from the sound that the rooster makes, and the extraordinarily long roof is decorated by a giant Lombok rooster that can be seen from the sea and miles away.

Indonesia’s Cultural Dining Series
The mission of bringing to life the art, culture, and romance of old Lombok does not stop at decoration and interior design. When you dine at Tugu, travel back through time up to hundreds of years, and find yourself in different eras, places, as well as forgotten, no longer-existent experiences of Indonesia.

Traditional Cooking Class
The cooking class is a unique lifestyle experience that speaks of hundreds years old of traditions, of the beautiful humbleness and the exotic richness of Indonesian dining and cooking culture, all at the same time. The class begins with a visit to traditional market where you will submerge into the daily Lomboknese way of living and finish with a dinner experience, eating with bare hands surrounded by oil lamps, stone grinders, and traditional steamers on wood-fire terracotta stoves in the open kitchen.

Babah Peranakan Dinner
The cross-culture between the Chinese settlers and the indigenous people also influenced the original Chinese gastronomy. The Chinese settlers adapted the use of traditional Indonesian spices and herbs into their home-style cooking, which had not been used in the original Chinese cuisine. The use of coconut milk, lemongrass, shallots, turmeric, tamarind, a sweeter style of soy sauce, as well as the inclusion of other herbs and spices created a new style of Chinese cuisine in Indonesia: Babah Peranakan Cuisine.

Sate Iboe Sarongan
Satay or sate is a famous dish of seasoned and skewered grilled meat often served with various spicy sauces. Back in the days in distant villages of Bali & Java, every evening just before 6pm, the women of these villages would wear their colorful sarong and kebaya top, sling their baskets of satays on their backs, and come swaying down the night markets or the village squares, often singing flirtatiously to hook customers in. The satays represented their image and reputation.
