The Grand Pavillion

The Grand Pavilion offers guests an oasis of tranquility where a delicious lunch or sunset cocktails may be enjoyed “alfresco”. After sunset the Grand Pavilion becomes the ideal milieu for pre-dinner aperitifs or a cognac and cigar.

Dinner served in the Grand Pavilion presents an ideal opportunity for dinner theatre where the gardens take center stage. This exquisite garden by night is suddenly transformed, as if by some strange and wonderful magic, into an ethereal wonderland and is a veritable feast for the eye as the artfully designed mood-lit gardens create the mystical ambiance of a fairytale and fantasy with reflected light bouncing, prancing, performing and dancing off the mirrored surface of the still waters of Palm Lake.
