And to Eat?
Four impressive restaurants offer first class cuisine at the Ibis Grill, the Lord Delamere Restaurant, the Delamere Terrace and the Delamere Patio. On the Delamere Terrace, they serve camel's milk ice cream, which rests on a simple, macadamia nut tart baked with acacia-infused honey. Dried fruit tops the ice cream, and three dabs of passion fruit coulis — the color of egg yolks —- sparkle on the side. Yes you heard right, Camel's Milk.
