Meals at sails were separate. I only ate what the chefs made at the villa. Hint: go take a look at the sails menu then go back to your private chefs at the villa and tell them to make the same for you. 😁

There is a dining area both inside and outside with tables placed on the verandah right in front of the pool. This is separate to the Sails restaurant which is further down in front of the beach
