If you have some time to kill waiting for a table at Jaya, just cross the lobby of The Setai to the bar. There, you can wait while sipping a cocktail such as the signature chili passion martini — made with chili-infused vodka, passion fruit-infused rum, ginger syrup and chili flakes. The sleek bar is a nice place to while away a wait, with a pearlescent bar and cushy stools. On Thursday nights you can enjoy live jazz music and the scene gets a bit ‘clubbier’ on Fridays and Saturdays when a DJ is in charge. If you’re looking for a little quiet before dinner, take your drink to the patio or move to the small library at the end of the bar.
If you don’t feel like having a drink while waiting for your table, just relax in one of the comfortable armchairs in the lobby area next to the Forbes Travel Guide Four Star restaurant.
