Aside from customer service, we put our focus on giving each guest a fun, memorable experience, as well as value for money.

Value for money
According to Mr. Rainfroy, the hotel wants to make sure there is something for everyone in the family. He continues, “There’s absolutely no room for boredom, with exciting adventures and activities happening under the sun, plus access to the Kids’ Club, where the little ones can play.

“No one can resist hitting the waters, whether that of the pool or beach. And there’s a whole lot of outdoor adventures waiting for you. We have arts and crafts activities for kids and group exercises in the beach garden. Health is wealth, and our gym is open to all in-house guests. There are group exercises scheduled outdoors, and a selection of island tours and water sport activities is also available for those who are craving some thrills.

We value our youngest clientele, and we are determined to providing them with fun and meaningful dining experiences. Aside from satisfaction, we put our attention on fulfilling the needs of our customers, especially the young ones. Kids nowadays are picky and observant. Some of them get bored easily. We want to spark their imagination and fuel not only their body, but also their mind with these quirky conversation pieces to make their plate look more interesting and enticing. Picture your kids biting into a caterpillar-shaped tuna sandwich with strips of bright and fresh vegetables.”
Come dinner time, The Sails restaurant treats guests to a series of gastronomic feasts of different origins, with its nightly themed buffet. “It’s like sailing from coast to coast, with our selection of cuisines that span a variety of cultures, heritages and cooking philosophies from across the globe,” adds Mr. Rainfroy. “We prepare a different buffet spread according to the theme that’s set for each night.”
