They have an amazing chef, great views and excellent customer service. We didn't stay at the Essque Zalu, but pretty much everyday we walked the beach to get to the Jetty to enjoy their delicious breakfasts, amazing lunches and outstanding cocktails.

We stayed at Zalu for 4 nights and we used to go to jetty every single night. Loved the serene, quiet and nice environment. Very very good food. Cool sea breeze blowing at night made the sitting totally worth it. Food was also great.
