Casual dining by the pool

Relaxing in the sun can be exhausting work, sometimes you don’t want to have to get dressed after swimming in the pool or oiling your skin to protect against the sun, you just eat something tasty that is easy to eat, which is why our Pool Restaurant is so handy.

We have put together a casual dining menu for you of delicious, but easy to eat items so you can enjoy a snack, a salad, sandwich or burger without having to stray too far away from your sun bed, or bother to get dressed for lunch. Try a Brown Flour wrap, or a grilled sandwich to bridge that gap…


Refreshing Beverages

In the heat of the day it is important to remain hydrated, but in addition to chilled water, we also have a selection of cool, long and refreshing drinks available for you to enjoy as you relax. From draught beer, chilled crisp white wine or fruit based cocktails we can help you to recover from the sun and add a little zip back into your step. A wide range of Mocktails are available, especially enjoyed by the children.


Drinks after Sunset

Chill out and relax after a hard day in the sun, enjoying some Nilaveli Sunset drinks together. Watch the sun go down and the harmony of the sea, kicking back with pre dinner cocktails or a long, cool beer. Whether you prefer to enjoy a Seafood BBQ or visit the Dining Room for dinner, work up an appetite with your family and friends at the bar. The music relaxes you whilst you enjoy the great natural beauty of your surroundings.
