The resort’s Clubhouse sports complex is the place to work out, and play table tennis and board games in the entertainment area. Otherwise, you can play badminton or tennis. Meanwhile, children between the ages of 3 and 12 can spend time at the supervised kids’ club, complete with an outdoor playground and indoor nursery. The activities schedule covers arts and crafts, cooking lessons, treasure hunts and story time.
The hotel’s freshwater pool has a swim-up bar and plenty of loungers for sunbathing. You can also stroll along the white sand beaches, spot reef sharks on the jetty or withdraw to the Orchid Spa. The spa also offers beauty treatments, romantic spa packages for couples and junior spa packages for children. You can relax in the steam room and sauna before or after your treatment.
The Gallery Restaurant is the main buffet-style restaurant that opens for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For a change of scenery, visit the Sea Breeze Cafe on the water’s edge and order pizza or hamburgers from the a la carte menu. Alternatively, savour grilled meats and seafood at The Grill Bar, indoors or on their overwater deck overlooking the Indian Ocean.
You can watch chefs skilfully cook your food on the teppanyaki hot plate at Um Yaki, or dine at Huvan. There are also opportunities to arrange private dining experiences on the beach.
