Delicious Detox Cuisine

ANDA Spa and Holistic Wellness Village @ The Crest Resort and Pool Villas Healthy Inspired Cuisine : Delicious Detox Cuisine

Some of the oldest Asian healing philosophies, such as Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, have always looked to food as the medicine of choice. At ANDA Spa and Holistic Wellness Village @ The Crest Resort and Pool Villas, we combine this philosophy with current medical research to take a more informed and precise approach to healing with food.

ANDA Spa and Holistic Wellness Village @ The Crest Resort and Pool Villas offers artful and inspired cuisine that is healing in function and tantalising in form. Merging culinary traditions of East and West and using fresh, tropical and, where possible, organic produce, the menus include extensive vegetarian options as well as seafood, poultry and lamb dishes. The food changes with the seasons, as it should, and different months bring different delights. Fresh juices, signature tonics and herbal teas are bursting with nutrients, medicinal properties and taste-bud tempting goodness, and the delicious Detox Cuisine, which features only low inflammatory, low allergenic and low GI vegetarian dishes, dispels the myth that ridding your body of toxins means depriving yourself of sensory pleasure.
