I dined with 5 others recently at Aqua. Antony (F&B Manager) kicked off our lovely evening with some great cocktail recommendations. We enjoyed oysters, coral trout, beek tataki, Tiger prawns and salt and pepper squid. A very reasonable bill, great service and a tranquil setting - just what we needed!

We booked a four night stay at the Pullman resort. Firstly I'd like to say the room, pool bar and breakfast are some of the best I've had but then we went to the restaurant for dinner and that's where it ended. We had the tapas entree which to say the least was very ordinary, we then ordered barramundi and... More
