AMENITIES AND SERVICES
In line with The Farm’s philosophy of holistic wellness, the unique menus at the award-winning ALIVE!, PRANA, and PESCE revolve around the idea that living food offers the highest form of nutrition. Each dish is prepared in such a creative way that, even with no or minimal cooking, they are safe to consume and full of flavor. The produce used also comes directly from our own organic plantations so you can expect nothing but the freshest and tastiest meals. As such, seafood at PESCE are fresh and wild caught, directly inspired by the Blue Zone diet.
