Favola, the sensational Italian restaurant, will offer freshly seasoned Italian fare, highlighting pizzas from its wood-fired oven and a well-stocked wine cellar. Guests can choose to dine al fresco amidst the verdant surrounds of the golf course or opt for a private dining room. At the heart of The Hub™, Le Méridien’s signature hotel lobby, lies Latitude 13° 39’, a creative bar concept which transforms from a casual coffee house by day to a vibrant ‘sparkling bar’ in the evening.

Golfers will enjoy playing a round of golf at the resort’s premier 18-hole golf course, Summit Windmill Golf Club. With scenic lakes, overlapping hills and sand bunkers strategically placed throughout breathtaking fairways, the course reflects the vision of Nick Faldo, who aspired to bring golfers a challenging and pleasurable experience – both day and night.
