The resort’s dining options include nine distinct venues, such as Hakkasan for modern Cantonese cuisine and Em Sherif for Lebanese dining. Roberto’s offers contemporary seafood-inspired Italian cuisine, while COYA presents authentic Peruvian dishes. Other options include Novikov Café, Karibu, and Zorba. The Lounge serves a locally inspired St. Regis Afternoon Tea, and Sukkar offers desserts. The Stage, inspired by the King Cole Bar, features classic cocktails and live entertainment.
