Embark On A Culinary Journey With Meeru’s Dine-Around Concept

One of the highlights of every visit to Meeru Island Resort & Spa is the culinary experience. Whether you are dining at the buffet restaurants or a la carte, you are guaranteed delicious food in a beautiful setting. The culinary team at Meeru is always looking to elevate the guest experience by consistently offering delicious food at great value. The most recent innovation is the dine-around concept introduced to the a la carte restaurants: Asian Wok and Hot Rock.

The concept takes guests on a culinary journey, allowing them to sample exquisite cuisines and adding an extra spark to their holidays. On various days of the week, guests can try the variety of set menus at both Hot Rock and Asian Wok, delighting in the abundance of flavour. At the overwater Asian Wok Restaurant, for example, the set menus meander through the Asian region, serving up vibrant dishes that are as visually appealing as they are delicious. On Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays, Thai cuisine is on offer with favourites like moo pad mamoung. On Tuesdays and Fridays, patrons can explore Indonesian cuisine, digging into decadent dishes like lobster laksa. Finally, on Wednesdays and Sundays, the culinary train hops over to neighbouring Sri Lanka tabling the contemporary flavours of Ceylon. There is a vegan menu available throughout, and as always, the beautiful views of the sea serve as a backdrop to dine against.

Laurent Ghislain Pacolet, the Food & Beverage Director, spoke on the inspiration behind the concept.

“One of the hot trends and demands currently influencing luxury travel is the dine-around option. Our commitment to offering excellent added value inspired our newly launched dine-around concept. We were also inspired by a desire to uplift the dining experience significantly for guests at our a la carte restaurants. Now, at Asian Wok Restaurant, guests can sample a vast array of the exquisite cuisines that Meeru offers, such as the vitalising senses of Thai cuisine, exciting flavours of Indonesia and epicurean delights from Sri Lanka. At outdoor Hot Rock Restaurant, guests can indulge in fine Western cuisine with some exciting set menus. From classic ‘Homage’ that showcases traditional recipes, ‘Culinary Extravaganza’ which offers an ultimate degustation dining experience from internationally acclaimed signature recipes, to ‘Chef’s Epicurean Medley’ where our Executive Chef created a menu that celebrates classic culinary culture.”

To try out the dine-around concept during your next visit to Meeru, a reservation is required 24 hours in advance. Guests are entitled to one dine-around lunch or dinner for every 5-night per guests’ stay (pre-booking required and subject to space availability) and are not valid for special events.

*Guest staying less than 4 nights can still enjoy the dine around experience at the Hot Rock and Asian Wok Restaurant by reservation as an add-on, at USD 89 per person and USD 69 per person for AIP guests ( Price include 12% GST).

Beyond the Dine-a-round, for all guests, Asian Wok and Hot Rock offers an expanded dining and wine options under its regular a la carte menus.
