We brought family and friends for another brunch expecting another great afternoon, unfortunately it did not happen!! The place was less than half full with no DJ! Some of the buffet dish's were cool. The menu items whilst very nice took longer to arrive than before in fact a few items were forgotten! Drink service was very good as normal.... More

From start to finish my experience in Yalumba was great. They accommodated our large party with ease and the service was both fast and friendly. Especially our server Bala. The selection of food and drink available from the buffet was enough to satisfy many different tastes with a good variety of both western and local food. I'd definitely recommend Yalumba... More

We stayed at the Meridien in the Royal Suites, but tried out Yalumba for breakfast having been tipped off by other guests that it was better than the lounge we had access to.
