A dramatic theme of a ‘mansion‘ submerged under water

Designed to be a romantic restaurant for couples, the atmosphere is light, cool, elegant, beautiful, watery, and soft. Wavy banquettes and curved elements such as the pendant light central feature pick up on the curves in the architecture.

The centre of the room has the focal point of the space – a long white table, almost like a grand table in a home decorated with vases filled with fabric orange flowers. Pieces of white coral also decorate the tables.


The dining chairs are by Capdell. The flooring is by aparici. The floor tiles are a mix of blue and white, white a textured beachy effect in a chevron format. Fabrics are developed by FIG with our joinery partner in DR, Invisa who produced all of the joinery for the restaurants.

We were so lucky to have the huge ceiling height here, we painted the ceiling white unlike all the other restaurants in the Village Centre, allowing this restaurant to really stand out for the couples. We specified the huge lighting chandeliers who were produced by a supplier in Spain.

A romantic dining experience with a cool, fresh & light backdrop

Sweeping views of the beach & tropical landscaping

This restaurant has the best view of the main beach and swimming pools than all of the other restaurants. We deliberately designed the interior with this in mind. The central table and lighting features are elegant but do not block the view. Guests can be delighted by the views upon entering the restaurant. The blue columns frame the view perfectly. There is also an outdoor terrace with all outdoor furniture by one of our favourite suppliers called Vondom. From this terrace guests also have a fantastic view of the main bar, enjoying a space free from the families area.

Bespoke luxury joinery details & furniture design

FIG usually design restaurant furniture ourselves alongside our production partners. The banquettes in this restaurant were designed as curved waves to tie in with the underwater theme. They were produced in a factory in Santiago in the north of the Dominican Republic owned by a company called Invisa. Invisa specialise in joinery and produced high quality work for all of our F&B outlets in this resort. We also developed our own fabrics with Invisa. FIG designed the tables which were produced in Spain with Andreu World. The table tops are a high quality marble laminate and the bases are a gold tinted metallic finish. The gold tints combined with marble effect, the quality chairs and light fixtures all create a luxurious ambience.

A restaurant specifically for the couples in the resort, the dining experience is the ultimate in evoking romance!
