Cuisine

The Sun House cuisine is predominantly seafood, inspired by a fusion of Asian flavors and cooking styles from Sri Lanka, Thailand, Australia and the Mediterranean. Fresh produce is organically grown and sought from both local and Hill Country specialists whilst seafood comes straight from the ocean. Each year, an international chef is invited to come and conduct cooking classes for guests. The Sun House provides guests with a varied selection of excellent wines while spirits, cocktails and coolers can be enjoyed from the colonially ambient Dick’s Bar. A stronger concoction in the form of the hotel’s signature cocktail – the Sun House Sour – is a perfectly indulgent way to pass the sunset hour.

Just for the kids

Suitable for families with children over twelve.
