Experience…
The Sea at Mai Thai Beach

Start your journey at sunset on the beach as Champagne
flows from the Methuselah bottle. Feet in the sand and a
flute in hand, savor the briny tang of the sea with oysters,
shucked freshly off the docking long-tail boat, and homecured
salmon canapés.

The #OutOfTheOrdinary Tuk Tuk
The fun continues a couple of steps up the sandy beach
where Spain meets Thailand through tapas served from
a tuk tuk food truck. A magnum rosé will quench your
thirst, while stunning Thai dancers fires up the floor.

Sake at The Den
The land of the rising sun comes to life at The Den as
rich, clean and fragrant notes of premium Japanese sake
take the stage alongside fresh scallops and prawns on the
grill. Complete the experience with a floating lantern for
good luck in the coming year!

Continue your journey to…
Celebrate the World at The Living Room

Stroll along the lily pond, down the steps, into the Living
Room for an international affair. Indulge in a spread,
featuring bursting flavours of various cuisines from
different parts of the world.
**Beverage is excluded for the remainder of the evening
And welcome the New Year with a bang.
