Like London and Australia, Bali is is one of those places where a healthy lifestyle started a while back. And yet more and more healthy cafés are popping up.

It’s that tropical & magical little island, the island that everybody escapes to recharge their batteries. We’re talking about Bali of course.  With more healthy choices than ever, it was time to share our top 10 of Bali’s most healthy cafés.


Jl. Kayu Cendana No.7, Seminyak, Bali 80361

With Australia around the corner, it’s not a big surprise that this kind of cafe opened up in Bali not too long ago. They call themselves “The Iconic Australian Cafe”. You can certainly have breakfast like a king or eat lunch like an emperor with one of their famous tropical juices.

Sari Organik, Ubud

Jl. Raya Tjampuhan, Ubud, Bali

We first discovered this healthy café back in 2010. In the beginning we weren’t sure where we would end up because you’ll need to walk through the rice fields for about 20 minutes which makes this place even more special! Once arrived, you can enjoy the best fresh coconuts, and homemade organic lunches.

Mule Malu

Jl. Pantai Bingin 80364 Uluwatu, Bali

Unlike the rest, this is actually an accommodation instead of just being a café. Hidden on bingin cliff top and within walking distance to Bingin beach.  Mule Malu strives to be environmentally friendly through the efficient use of energy, water and materials while providing quality services. Their in house café is amazing and located by the pool. They serve healthy bowls, dairy free and sugar free juices and smoothies throughout the day.

Ubud Hanging Gardens

Desa Buahan, Payangan, Bali 80571

You can imagine my jaw dropping when I entered the hanging gardens for the first time. I had a wonderful dinner here with no time for a jump in the infinity pool but let’s just say we have a rain check on that one! They mainly use vegetables, fruits and spices  from the Bedugul or are grown at their own property, their seafood comes directly from Jimbaran Bay making lunch and dinner very tasty!

Warung Kecil

Jalan Duyung no 1, Sanur, Bali

My parents told me about this secret place. Sanur residents love it here. The prices are extremely low but the food quality is sky high! From the outside it doesn’t look like anything special but it’s cosy and cute on the inside. They offer vegetarian and vegan options plus healthy wheatgrass shots, fresh almond or macha milk, pressed juices, young coconuts and you can also go for a buffet. Check their Facebook for more info.

Hotel Buiten » a community hotspot in Amsterdam New West

Amsterdam New West is one of the area’s outside the city center of Amsterdam that is under massive development. Old flats are being taken down, and new houses are build. With the housing, come new hotspots and one of those is Hotel Buiten. The place to be this summer, if you live in Amsterdam West.

Hotel Buiten

Hotel Buiten is not just any hotspot, it’s a creative hub, build from raw and used materials, designed by Lenka Dittrichova. It stared with a few neighbours a few years ago, that wanted to do something with lost space full of weeds and grass. After a temporary set up, they managed to get more people involved and eventually 180 people and businesses helped fund the project. Many volunteers helped build the building, so you could say that Hotel Buiten is community. No, it’s not a hotel, but they do have future plans to rent out self-build houses  around the Sloterplas area.

They started to build Hotel Buiten in the beginning of 2017, and even though they officially opened up their doors months ago, they’ve just recently added the finishing touches. Hotel buiten is located next to the Sloterplas and surrounded by water from all sides, which makes it an unique spot. Sloterplas is gaining popularity because of the man-made beach, sailing activities and the recently opened Van Eesteren Paveljoen.

The Menu
At Hotel Buiten they cook seasonal. Meaning, that they’re changing the menu every few months of the year to guarantee the best flavours. Most products are organic, and with the home garden recently finished, they will use their own herbs for seasoning. For lunch you can order homemade soups, salads or sandwiches. Nice to know; the bread comes from iambe, a non-profit organisation where people with a disability help bake the bread. For coffee you’re also at the right address with beans from The White Coffee Label, and beer drinkers are happy to know that they have a variety of local craft beers available.

I had a little peek this week because they’ve recently opened the upstairs and downstairs terrace, which gives you a nice spot in the sunshine. They are currently building an upstairs and outside bar, to accommodate customers during the high season. The location is also perfect for hosting a wedding or birthday party, with plenty of options.

With the beach, newly build housing projects and Hotel Buiten, Amsterdam New West is certainly worth visiting this season!
