Informal all-day dining and themed events, such as Lobster & Jazz, are on offer at the Sunset Deck or enjoy cocktails and dinner at the Laguna Restaurant & Lounge, where the seasonally-inspired menus are complemented by herbs from the chef’s organic garden - complimentary breakfast is also served here. Guests wishing to find out more about the organic ingredients used here and in the tea menu can also enjoy a complimentary garden tour, observing the chef harvesting produce for use as part of a live cooking demonstration. Lagoon-style rock pools meander through the Colony Club gardens towards a palm-fringed beach, where a wide choice of complimentary watersports, including water-skiing, sailing and paddle boarding, are available; a complimentary beach and pool ambassador service is also proffered.
