The à la carte Orchard Room serves international cuisine, while the Country Club’s sushi bar offers Japanese dishes, including Teppanyaki. Guests can enjoy refreshing drinks at Sir Roy’s Bar.

The Simola Golf Course is a designer course by Jack Nicklaus with spectacular views and the added-benefit of being sheltered from winds – which plague other golf courses in the area. The 18 hole golf course features a club house, pro shop, putting greens and a driving range. The course is challenging and a combination of natural beauty, spectacular views and an immaculately kept golf course.
