We had two magical days lounging on the beach front by Manzu. It’s the perfect place to sunbathe while living all your tropical cocktail fantasies. In particular, the Crazy Colada is refreshingly sweet without being cloying with a spicy zip. The service was excellent. In...particular, Luis and Leonard were our servers and went above and beyond.More

Beautiful sunset cocktails, great ambience swinging in the hammocks. Very tranquil... We sat and drank cocktails for a few hours and then went to the restaurant for our dinner reservation. It was nice to receive A complementary Arancini amuse bouche. My partner had the coffee...beef tenderloin and I had the chicken breast with broccoli purée! Finished off with a bottle of red and a chocolate fondant. Service was excellent!! Highly recommendMore

Awesome personalized catering for your room, incredible chef, creative and top of the line cooking. I am truly amazed by how everything that came out of the kitchen, from seemingly normal plates (like the mashed beans - best ever - or the exquisite chips of...several kinds of potatoes) to extraordinarily original plates like the awesome deconstructed vegan lemon pie, everything was simply exquisite, and all the waiters and kitchen staff were friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I really want to commend Luis who was superb in his service and was also really fun and interesting to talk to.More
