Whether gazing out to sea, under the shade of rustling palms or over the meandering river, dining here is scenic, exquisite and informal.

Di Atas Sungei is Malay for 'Above the River' so guests will find it easy to spot this restaurant which literally sits above a river that flows into the South China Sea. With no menu, guests are guided by the resort's Menu Masters, experts in local cuisine, who provide a distinctive dining experience using only the freshest produce of the highest quality. Surrounded by lush tropical greenery, and shaded by a huge ketapang tree, the restaurant opens for breakfast and dinner, and serves authentic Malaysian cuisine.

Nelayan, meaning ‘Fisherman’ in the Malay language, was inspired by the locally and internationally acclaimed signature restaurant, Fisherman’s Cove. Nelayan offers a variety of Asian and Western selections for lunch while dinner features a unique symphony of seafood themed dishes crafted by Chef Wai, the pioneer of Fisherman’s Cove, which focuses on sustainable fishing practices and the freshest ingredients. Its seaside setting and romantic ambience sets the perfect tone for a relaxed dining experience.

Situated beside the resort's free-form pool overlooking lush tropical foliage, Teratai Terrace serves healthy salads and local desserts for lunch, steamboat dinner, as well as a selection of wines and cocktails in the evenings. Movie screenings nightly from 9pm.
