Restaurants & bars

A trio of restaurants expands the already wide-reaching food offering at JA The Resort. Michelin-starred Vikas Khanna take the helm in Kinara, rustling up tasty Indian cuisine in a vibrant dining space. Republik is a modern gastropub serving classic dishes with an innovative twist – don’t miss the Friday brunches – while Eighty One (81) is the main buffet restaurant showcasing global flavours and live cooking stations. The jewel in the hotel’s crown, however, is Bibe, a rooftop lounge bar where expert mixologists prepare tasty cocktails – served with sweeping views across the resort. The Lobby Lounge is the go-to spot for light snacks and refreshments.
