Unlock another layer of Bali’s rich culture and forge a deeper connection to the land by taking part in a hands-on class at Sokasi, our riverside cooking school. Set within fragrant herb and vegetable gardens, beside the sacred Ayung River, our open-air classes start with a chef-guided tour of the local markets, before returning to the Resort to cook a menu of some of Bali's most famous dishes – as well as forgotten recipes revealed by our chef.

The name Sokasi is derived from sok nasi (literally ‘rice basket’), which is made from woven bamboo and usually hand-painted. The Balinese use sokasi to serve cooked rice and to carry fruits, flowers, leaves and food to the temple to make offerings.
