Seminyak, Bali

Orbit restaurant

Melanie Hall – Concept design, Interior design

Orbit restaurant overlooks the pool through a somewhat futuristic ‘bubble’ dining window. Seating just 24 people, this is a truly intimate and sophisticated dining oasis, within the chaos of Seminyak!

With tributes to the late 50’s/ early 60’s, Orbit restaurant’s fresh white space bursts with accents of sunflower yellow; nostalgic black & white hounds-tooth fabric adorns modular banquette sofas, paired with white Carrara-topped marble dining tables and Cassina by Philippe Starck white leather dining chairs.

Lunafood is fuelled with nostalgia, futurism & fun! In keeping with the Luna2 ethos of “Respecting the past, welcoming the future and having fun in the process”, the Head Chef recalls and reinvents classic European recipes, using the finest locally available ingredients, then fuels them with innovation, imagination and a touch of fun.

Melanie has employed wonderfully talented international chefs during the 10 years at Luna2. Danny Drinkwater was the first Executive Chef at Luna2 private hotel – a Brit, coming to Luna2 from the The Park Hyatt Sydney after working in restaurants in both London and Bermuda. Brenden Peace followed Danny as Executive Chef (and later General Manager) from award winning Sydney restaurants La Tratt amongst prestigious establishments including Longrain and XO in the city. Alanna Agnew then joined the team after an interesting international career starting at Christine Manfield’s flagship Universal restaurant, then later working in  highly esteemed restaurants in Europe, Australia and finally the famous PS Cafe in Singapore Europe.

With an extensive wine list with over 150 labels from around the world, Orbit restaurant is one of a select group of restaurants worldwide to be honoured with Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence, five years in a row.
