All day dining
Situated near the Infinity Pool, this All Day Dining buffet restaurant offers the best of Asian, European, Indian and authentic Kerala specialities.

Dine by the Infinity Pool, seated in the comforts of the air-conditioned spaces, or outside, exposed to the charms of the sea. Feast on the extensive range of dishes from a variety of cuisines including Asian, European and Indian. Try not to miss the authentic Kerala specialities in this 24-hour buffet restaurant.

Try our Chicken Biryani, with fragrant rice and moist chicken, and Tandoor Prawns, fresh from the oceans below and smoked to perfection in our tandoor. Our chef also recommends Meen Pollichathe, kingfish in masalas cooked wrapped in a banana leaf. From the Kerala galleys, try are the parottas in their many variations, light and fluffy, without a hint of grease.

Let the mesmerising settings of the deep blue sea and the Infinity Pool add to your experience. Our thoughtful attendants are always at hand, anticipating your needs through the course of your meal.

Celebrate food in all its nuances. Treasure experiences such as these.
