Di Atas Sungei
'Di Atas Sungei' is Malay for 'Above The River' so guests will find it easy to spot this restaurant which literally sits above a river that flows into the South China Sea. Surrounded by lush tropical greenery, and shaded by a huge Ketapang tree, the restaurant opens for breakfast and dinner, and serves authentic Malaysian cuisine.
Situated beside the Resort's free-form pool with a view of the South China Sea, Teratai Terrace serves cocktails in the evenings and offers private dining experiences. Enjoy dinner and drinks under a canopy of stars to the sweet strains of live gamelan music.
'Nelayan' in the Malay language means 'Fisherman'. Befitting the restaurant's name, seafood is the speciality of this outlet. Situated by the sea, the atmosphere at Nelayan is relaxed and informal. A variety of local and Western light meals are served for lunch and the Resort's own fishermen bring in the catch of the day for dinner. Weather permitting, guests have the option of enjoying a delightful alfresco dining experience on the beach featuring bamboo torches and the gentle sound of the waves.
Ideally situated away from the beach and recreational areas near the tennis courts, the conference hall is able to accommodate between 80 and 100 people.
