The design solutions of Siófok Mala Garden Wellness Hotel and Restaurant were inspired by the modern architecture of the island of Bali.
"Luxury, Design, Harmony”
Bali is found in the Indonesian Archipelago and is one of Indonesia’s more than thirty exotic regions. Bali is famous for its fine arts, among them dance, painting, sculpture, metal and leatherworks and its unique music.
In the Indonesian Archipelago, Bali is one of the last refuges of Hinduism; hence its everyday life characterised by peace of mind, calm and balance. Respect for the ancestors and nature is a focal point of the philosophy of the island’s natives. This is exactly that particular atmosphere and feeling that guests of Mala Garden or those of the Hotel’s restaurant may experience at the shore of Lake Balaton. When designing Mala Garden Hotel Siófok, the key objective was to recreate the Balinese harmony between nature and living space. Opening the huge folding glass walls of the lakeshore restaurant, the garden and the restaurant melt together, blurring the borderline between inside and outside… And the garden near the shore is an unmatched experience for adults and children alike. The artistic water surfaces, garden fountains, fish and aquatic plants of Mala Garden Hotel and Restaurant all remind the viewer of Bali. The harmonic interior is completed by Balinese sculptures, white pebbles, vases and other accessories. The creation of large spaces and the natural materials used add to a full experience of the positive energy the surroundings radiate.
Mandara Café awaits guests all year round, with a new selection of cakes each day. Created by the confectionary chef, cakes are prepared from raw materials appropriate for the given season, making sure that only the best ingredients are used; for example they use Belgian chocolate only for desserts free of flavoring and coloring.
Some of the cakes are of home-made style, but quality plays a major role in the kitchen to ensure that the desserts are ever more sophisticated. Mandara Café is prepared to meet special demands, thus guests can find on the daily menu sweets free of sugar, gluten and lactose as well, which are sweetened by dates, so everyone has a chance to fall into temptation in the confectionary. In the summer peak season (June, July, August), bistro type food is also offered.
Mandara Café has also something to offer if one is just thirsty: home-made syrups, Hungarian craft beer specialties, exclusive premium quality drinks and coffee specialties are awaiting guests.
