Bars and Restaurants

  • The Palms

    This vibrant all day dining restaurant overlooking the pool serves multi-cuisine delights with Continental, Sri Lankan and Indian favorites. Loyal guests drive down from Colombo for the popular weekend buffets.

    Recharge in the casual ambiance with open, interactive kitchens and inside/outside dining that overlooks the pool. Indian and Western barbeque stations vie with steaming plain and egg hoppers turning a crisp golden brown in covered concave pans.

    Take your pick from the buffet or sit back and relish a menu specially designed by our chefs. A hot favourite is the Sri Lankan Lunch Platter, a delightful assortment of red rice accompanied with chicken curry, tempered radish, ambarella chutney, beans in coconut milk and spicy pol sambol (coconut). Top this with Chef Sunny’s delicate watallapam. All served in charming porcelain bowls.
     
    Enjoy it all, with live music at dinner time, while you are looked after with the finest service. Always attentive. Never obtrusive.
  • Sea View

    Go in for an unforgettable experience. A vibrant setting. A vivid view. And food that challenges you to resist. Sea View is a refreshing fine dining restaurant situated at the lobby level. Soak in a stunning view of the Indian Ocean in a superb setting.

    This stylish restaurant offers candlelit dining with a superb selection of courses. Let Chef Jayatunga wow you with his Lobster Cappucino which is flames with Cognac, followed by Blue Swimmer Crab with shaved coconut and mint salad accompanied with fried shallots and chives. Try saying no to the New Zealand rack of lamb with leeks, wild mushroom jus and Sri Lankan red rice risotto.
     
    Allow our sommelier to pair the food with carefully selected South African, Australian and Chilean wines.
     
    A fine finale is an irresistible Grand Mariner and passion fruit brulee with roasted almonds or if you prefer the Rubarb tart with strawberry and cream.
     
  • S.H.A.C.K.

    As fresh as fresh can be. We’ve got it all covered. Both the morning and the afternoon catch of the day from the Indian Ocean.

    Celebrate the panoramic view of the Indian Ocean in the open. Get hooked on the candlelit dining experience under the stars as the waves orchestrate the sounds of the sea.
     
    Enjoy the Fresh Catch of the day. Grilled to perfection to retain the delicate natural tenderness. Take your pick from what’s on display. Lobsters, Jumbo Prawns. Tuna, Cuttle Fish, Seer Fish. They all swim on to plates here.

    The pumpkin & carrot soup provides a gentle start and a fine selection of white wines aids navigation through the fresh courses. Take a dive.

  • Oriental Pavilion

    The stunning décor creates the perfect setting. The charming menu which sits in a wooden box sets the tone for the feast to follow.

    Chef Xintau is a man of few words. His inspired Chinese cuisine however speaks a lot. Try finding words to describe his fried dumplings or his perfectly prepared Peking duck. The Crispy Beef Sichuan style demands the sound of silence followed by crackling applause. Pair the food with a Toscana wine and you’ve got a memorable authentic Chinese dining experience which will leave you speechless.
     
    We shall say no more.
  • Tease

    This is where exotic cocktails, fine wines and a host of international spirits are complemented with amazing cocktail snacks and dishes. The tropical-inspired decor adds to the vibrancy of this space.

    You’ll find it tough to resist the Sri Lankan Coconut Arrack Shots. The Margaritas are quite a rage here. So also are the Mojitos muddled with panadas leaves and spices. Exotic is the word.
     
    There’s a live band to help you maintain the rhythm every evening. And in between shots try your hand at the pool table. Cheers!
