"When the heart is at ease, the body is healthy". - Chinese Proverb | This outdoor patio is one of many where our residents and their families and friends can enjoy some fresh air and sunshine over a meal or afternoon tea. Off the main dining room, it's a space where we will run our barbeque.

Intergenerational Connection

Your grandchildren will not have to sit still or stay quiet in the dining room. In our private function room, they can break out after dinner to play while the adults continue their conversation for as long as they wish. In our dedicated intergenerational room, we will have structured and free-exploration programs for you to play, read stories, share life experiences, knit, sew and paint.

The Culinary Experience

At OPAL, you’ll enjoy private family dining, rooftop barbeque parties, and authentic ethnic cuisine such as steamed live seafood and double boiled soup. We will offer farm-to-table menus with wholesome produce from local suppliers and our own garden.

At the Chef’s Table, be inspired by culinary demonstrations and group classes by our own Executive Chef, and other renowned chefs. By our open display kitchen, you can watch the action and smell the aromas at the communal table or at the display counter. See our chefs using their torches for aburi sashimi and sushi. Customize your salads. Smell the aromas of our in-house pastries as they come out of our ovens. Under the guidance of our chefs, make pizza, pasta and ice cream with your grandchildren.

When there’s great food, of course there’s also beverage to complement. We will have wine and scotch tastings, fruit-and-herb infused water bar, afternoon High Tea service with delicate in-house pastries and loose leaf teas from around the world.

The Wellness Offerings

In addition to a gym with specialized equipment for balance, strength, flexibility and cardiac endurance, we will also offer more passive, instructor-led classes such as yoga, TaiChi and QiGong. Our luxury spa will deliver natural holistic therapy in oxygenated, aromatherapy environments that emit negative ions. Relax and pamper yourself in our hydrotherapy tub, have a massage in our infrared sauna, and dance and do yoga in our Himalayan rock salt studio, then finish off with an experiential rainshower.
