Moana at Sofitel The Palm offers Ocean Brunch every Friday with beach and pool access included.

Our latest invitation to the Seafood-themed Ocean Brunch was very enticing and it was something we were definitely looking forward to given that it also came with beach and pool access.

Located by the pool, the decor and ambiance is ideal for a lazy Friday afternoon.  The pagoda-style outdoor terrace overlooks the beach and immediately transfers you into a holiday-state-of-mind.

The four-course sit down buffet is served right to your table-making it easy for us to get comfortable and just soak up the surroundings.  The meal began with welcome drinks-with both alcoholic and non-alcoholic options to pick from and a hearty saffron flavored fish broth filled with grilled seafood.  The first course was an absolute delight of flavours and textures including Shrimp Cocktail, Sashimi, and an entire Chef’s special Sushi Platter.

The hot starters came next and our personal favourites included the crispy fried Calamari, Lentil Fritters, Chicken Teriyaki and Seared Scallops.  In the mains we loved that there was such a variety of different cuisines and each one tastier than the last.  Despite so much food it was impossible to resist it and we were quick to wipe up the plates of grilled Atlantic Sea Bass,Roasted Cod Fillet, Spinach Riccota Ravioli, Prime Beef Tenderloin and Chargrilled King Prawns.

There is also dessert to follow but order full stomachs didn’t allow us to really enjoy the selection of Zuzu Truffle, Passion Cube, Orange marmalade cake and Balsamic jelly stuffed with fresh strawberries.

The staff are friendly, the service is great and the atmosphere is ideal for spending a lazy Friday afternoon enjoying Asian-inspired fresh seafood in an amazing setting.  Oh, and once you are done then just head on over to the pool or beach to soak in the sun.
