Step into the oceanfront restaurant, Azure, for fresh seafood cooked in herbs. However, I would recommend savoring in Surf Lanai that is the chic café at the beachside and by the pool. Better than Azure, it is an expert in serving the classic American cuisine adorned with tropical textures. Just enjoy the la carte breakfast and lunch. The beachside bar, Mai Tai Bar, is good for appetizers and you can also enjoy the ocean views, live entertainment, and tropical music.


From $295 per night.
