Darling, what should I wear tonight?
Although at Rendezvous we want you to feel relaxed, we are aware that there is a balance between formal and casual. So we have a dress code to help everyone know what to wear during the day and in the evening. If however you feel that you need to don a ball gown and tiara, then feel free!
Gentlemen are required to wear a shirt and ladies are asked to wear a bathing suit cover. We ask that no wet clothing is worn in the restaurant.
Gentlemen wear shirts or polos with collars, either long or short sleeves (no t-shirts, vests or tank tops) and long trousers/pants, tailored Bermuda-length shorts (no sports shorts, capri or ¾ pants); Ladies wear dresses, skirts, long trousers/pants, culottes or tailored Bermuda-length shorts (no “short-shorts” or cut-offs).

How many restaurants are there at the resort?
Rendezvous offers three beauties, which means we concentrate on great food rather than great volume.
The Terrace Restaurant overlooks the 2-mile stretch of Malabar Beach from every angle. Breakfast (7:30 – 10:30am), Lunch (12:30pm – 2:30pm) and Dinner (7:30pm – 9:30pm) are served there daily. The service is buffet style and the theme and the cuisine changes on a daily basis.
On the other hand, we also offer an air-conditioned fine dining restaurant, the Trysting Place. The classic French à la Carte Menu changes every three days over a two-week cycle.
Malabar Beach Club is our “Toes in the Sand” restaurant offering a unique intimate dining experience at the water’s edge. You can now enjoy dinner under an open sail roof, with furniture made from the local Samaan tree and drift wood.
