Food and facilities

Called the Feeding Tree, the hillside cafe, with its spectacular views of the sea, is surrounded by trees with squirrels, birds and occasional snakes slithering through. The cafe’s set menu consists of locally-sourced and locally-inspired dishes, such as garlic butter prawns and ayam pansuh (chicken cooked in bamboo) but for a sunset dinner, try the delicious barbecue and buffet on the beach. There is a beautiful natural rock pool and an appealing private beach that will make you feel like you're on your very own desert island.
