I have never spent a night at the resort, however, I dined here on two separate occasions simply for the outdoor restaurant. The first time was most memorable; gorgeous summer evening with live acoustic guitar musician. Very relaxing atmosphere.

We had a wonderful dinner at East. The cheese plate, pad Thai with ahi tuna and the rack of lamb were all mouth watering. Special thanks to the chef for accommodating our dietary restrictions. Excellent service, too!
