An extensive beverage service awaits guests at the resort’s roof top bar while offering views of the bay. The on-site restaurant offers a selection of Thai, French, Italian, Australian, Indian and Chinese favourites. There also is a barbecue terrace where guest can enjoy seafood delight. The staff at Avista are happy to assist with any special requirements- we actually had the terrace to ourselves one evening along with our own private chef. We designed the menu ourselves with a selection of our favourite dishes cooked right in front of us as we watched the sunset over the spectacular view. This was certainly something special that I will never forget!

Guests can enjoy the fitness centre facilities or relax with pampering spa treatments. Other facilities at the resort include a 24-hour front desk, a game room and a library and golf buggies to transport you around the building! Parts of the grounds are quite steep for walking but it isn’t necessary to tackle the hills by foot. If you have an injury or disability I would contact the hotel in advance to request a room with easy access. There is a tour desk on site to assist with any excursions or adventures that you may wish to participate in.
