Has been drawing the inspiration from the legend of Madame Pearl Collins, a one-time resident of the mythical academy of learning, the resort flagship restaurant- The Pink Pear has officially opened in late October 2018. Evoking memories of the roaring twenties, the immersive experience of Pink Pearl begins from the moment guests are welcomed at the door.  In her luxurious pink mansion, lavish dinner parties and grand celebrations were the order of the day. Continuing this tradition, the restaurant embodies a spirit of warm hospitality and a generous dash of glamour.

Celebrating this exotic style, the dining areas boast a bold mix of opulent furnishings, eye-catching patterns and bright splashes of pink. With detailed upholstery and ornate tiles and carpets, the 36-seat main dining hall exudes a grand yet airy ambience, while French doors and oversized windows bring the sun and sea into the interior. Dramatically high ceilings and a curated collection of sculptures pay tribute to Madame Collins’s eccentric, fun-loving spirit.

More luxury awaits, in the five private dining rooms, each one seating between eight to 10 diners and named after the key figures of the mansion, including Lady Pearl and the Dean. Lithographs dating back to 1886 – the year the fictional academy was founded – adorn the walls, while the elegant furnishings are a nod to the original owner’s extravagant lifestyle. In contrast, the exclusive ten-seater wine tasting room conveys a darker mood, more fitting for intimate gatherings and quiet conversations.

Exuding Gatsbian drama, a spiral staircase entrance opens onto monochromatic glazed cabinets containing a vast selection of French wines, alongside New World favourites and a collection of fortified wines. Guests also have the option to dine alfresco in the outdoor garden, the perfect setting for lazy lounging and leisurely high teas.

The feast for all the senses reaches a crescendo with the arrival of dinner, with Madame Pearl’s favourite classic French recipes deconstructed and given a modern twist by the award-winning Chef de Cuisine, Amine Lakhdari. Born in Montmorency in the neighbor of Paris, Chef Amine Lakhdari grew up in Bordeaux and discovered his passion for cooking during those family meals where his Grand Mother and Mother were sharing love through the food.

The Pink Pearl’s  menu is said to be refreshed every few months based on seasonality, showcasing the chef’s ability to innovate while staying true to traditional French methods.

Blending the classic with the contemporary, guests can expect the finest local and French ingredients, surprising flavors and a generous dash of creativity. Signature dishes include the Phu Quoc Sea Urchin, a combination of local treasure, French “savoir faire” and delicate ingredients; Charolaise Beef Pithivier, which references traditional techniques and showcases quintessential French products; and Opera Pearl Marou Chocolate, an indulgent delight incorporating one of Vietnam’s most famous exports, Chocolate.  In the other hand, Pink Pearl’s sommelier is on hand with expert recommendations to pair with Chef Amine’s extraordinary dishes.

To top off this unique immersive dining experience, livepianists and violinists will perform pieces of classical music. The eveningconcludes in spectacular fashion with diverse entertainment such as a French opera performance from the upper balcony. The restaurant also offers a tour of the mansion to diners, defining the experience not simply as a dinner, but a one-of-a-kind escapade.
