While staying at the resort overlooking one of the most beautiful beach in Bali, we’ve found inspiration to turn our dining space into a tropical one.

Here are 8 things you can include into your dining space for a relaxing, Balinese-style dining experience.

1. Tropical flowers
Fresh flowers always add beauty to any space. For a tropical feel, get flowers like orchid or bird of paradise.
