Dining al Fresco: Serene Pavilions


By: Five Star Alliance

The Pavilions Restaurant at Serene Pavilions is as picturesque a setting as is imaginable in which to savour some truly memorable food, which combines the bountiful local produce with some of the finest ingredients from around the world.

Serene Pavilions

The restaurant itself faces due west and sits above the Amritha bar. It's a truly romantic setting, looking over the palm infused garden and on to the glistening Indian Ocean, with nothing but the occasional tropical bird and incoming fishing boat to distract from the ambience, food and wine. The menu is changed daily, a testament to the freshness of the food and the imagination of the kitchen.
