Bottega’s pizza oven is a new concept for the Italian restaurant along with sharing plates, salads and fresh pastas. We love Sip & Sand for its stunning poolside location offering a hearty lunch in the day but come night, a Japanese twist of Sushi and Sashimi and seafood selections in time for sunset. The Point has a Spanish influence with tapas and nibbles, pull up a seat and watch the chefs prepare and share their tips. Drift is the unique and exceptional experience, located on one of the two private islands, local fish, light curries and fresh herbs from the organic garden is on the menu with only a passing crab for company.
