Rainforest  Cafe
The cafe is located on the hillside and provides an excellent view of the seaside. In the evenings, the view of the sunset is breathtaking. It is also mostly surrounded by trees so you can get to see squirrels and birds and occasionally a whip snake slithering through the trees.

Most of our set menus consist of local dishes however we will tailor the meals to any requirement. Western and vegetarian meals are available. If you are looking to do something really memorable, try our barbeque and buffet on the beach at sunset. All prepared food is halal and cooked without the use of Monosodium Glutamate (MSG).
The cafe serves a range of local dishes such as garlic butter prawns, midin belacan, ayam pansoh and roti canai. Some of these dishes are exclusively Sarawakian and are cooked the local way - simple, spicy and tasty using fresh local ingredients.

We provide meals at locations all over the resort in addition to serving meals at the cafe. Refreshments can be delivered to the training areas as well as to the conference rooms. We have a cafe capable of seating up to 150 persons. If necessary we have an alternate venue for dining in our Jungle hall that can seat 200 persons.
