Tentação ('Temptation' in Portuguese), our all-day dining restaurant and bar, offers a delectable choice of seafood, snacks, Goan and Indian food as well as international cuisine.
The live grill counter and tandoor (Indian clay oven) is open every evening serving fresh catch of seafood and meats, vegetables and Indian breads. The bar is well stocked with a vast range of popular and home-concocted cocktails and other alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. The restaurant is located next to the swimming pool. It is partly covered with an al fresco dining facility as well. Guests can enjoy food and drinks by the poolside while they relax and sunbathe on the pool deck.
The ingredients used in most of the dishes on our menu, including the fruits, vegetables and herbs, are grown using organic processes in Beleza's own gardens, giving a very homely taste to our food. We also organise a guided a tour of the gardens for our guests.
