"I am really looking forward to continuing to lift the profile of the property and the region as a quality leisure and conferencing destination offering a fantastic gourmet experience."
New Executive Chef, Ralph Campbell is revelling the in the region's variety of tropical fruits, seafood and fresh produce, inspiring him to introduce a tapas style menu perfect for poolside dining at the resort's restaurant Sublime Bar & Grill.
