Mandarin Oriental, Sanya boasts of stunning views of the South China Sea and breathtaking sights of the sunset.
There is no better place to enjoy the magic hour settling into the night than at Fresh, the resort’s beachfront restaurant.
Fresh presents Modern Australian cuisine in a relaxed beachside environment. The approachable dining experience highlights the views, the beach, global and local flavors, and the Mandarin Oriental high standard, etiquette, and hospitality.
David Pooley joined the Mandarin Oriental, Sanya team in December 2015. With his experience and career in Sydney and in Asia’s five-star hotels, he brings his talents and techniques onto the plates of Fresh and throughout the resort (as you can also see him in the mornings overseeing the breakfast buffet stations).
Chef Pooley presents a Modern European touch alongside the inspiration from Chinese and Hainanese ingredients. The result is a beautiful display of artful plating and tastes lavishly filling all the senses.
Mandarin Oriental, Sanya: Fresh
Fresh’s cuisine focuses on seafood, both freshwater and saltwater fishes and shellfish. The menu offers a la carte choices, plates to share, and a tasting menu highlighting the best of the season’s ingredients.
The tasting menu takes guests on a journey around the world starting and ending on the beaches of Sanya. The ingredients, tastes, and textures transport you to Australia, Europe, China, Japan, and beyond.
The composition of the tasting pairs perfectly with the beach in that the dishes are not overly indulgent; rather, they are as the name of the restaurant implies, fresh.
(Note: When the rainy weather persists through the evening, Fresh’s dinners are held inside Yi Yang)
