Don’t let the entrance surprise you. A quick walk through the kitchen leads you to beautiful beach view dining. Excellent selection on the menu. Tuna tower is sushi grade tuna. The sea bass is always excellent. Sit back and enjoy paradise while enjoying great food...More

I think you need to put out a public question so that someone there can ask for contact info for you. Or try contacting the hotel you'll be at to help you arrange. Sorry I don't have more for you.
