The Hotel signature restaurant, the opulent Al Nafourah, is a contemporary Arabian Oasis with all the mystique of the Middle East at its most exotic - with private silken dinner tents, Moorish arches, ornate paintings, and richly woven carpets lend an enchanting ambience scented with spices.. After a feast of Lebanese cuisine, diners can enjoy intriguing belly dancing performances or draw flavoured tobacco from the bubbling hookahs on the terrace by the lagoon pool. Belly dancer performs nightly except Sundays.

Green salad with olive

* Cold – Pita bread with 3 types of dip
* Hot – potato and curry puff
Main course - Fish and chicken
Dessert – Custard Egg

The setting of the restaurant was awesome. I was impressed with the way they served our food – especially the rose syrup. It was poured from a special container carried on the back of the waiter. The sugar for the tea was served in a special way as well – like a lollipop.

How was the food? It was good. I enjoyed the dessert the most. We spent about 2 hours for the whole lunch. We really tried to finish as much food as we could. The portion for the salad and appetizers was big.

It was indeed a memorable event for me – to spend the time with Jordan and Yoke Kheng.
