The extravagant floating breakfast in Bali has taken instagram by storm, with it’s popularity booming and the “Instagrammable” photo opportunity which is hard to resist.

Where did the floating breakfast trend start?

This unique breakfast option started back in Bali, where it was first introduced by AYANA Resort and Spa ten years ago, although it’s a mystery to whom the exact person was who introduced it.

Some rumors suggested it was a customer who just wanted to cool of in the pool while eating, so they improvised with the now famous and study “floating tray”.

One thing is for sure, it’s an interesting and some what bucket list way of eating ones breakfast! So is this hot new trend just for the “Gram” or is it actually a lovely way to start you day!
