il Lido At The Cliff
Client: The Royal Group / Accor
Project: il Lido At The Cliff - Sofitel Sentosa
Launch: December 2015
Located within the Sofitel Sentosa resort and spa, Il Lido at The Cliff is one of the latest in a string of restaurants by Chef Beppe de Vito that JPA have work on.
Arriving via the restaurant’s main terrace guests are reminded of the ‘grand dame’ terraces of Mediterranean hotels, with bespoke tiles of weathered terracotta and flowering plants that leads guests past an impressive and inviting bar countered in Black Forrest marble and framed by brass pendant lights.
During the daytime sunlight is filtered through the terrace’s glass roof by an elaborate screen of tensile sailcloth which references the yachts that occasionally pass through the nearby shipping routes the site overlooks.
The outer terrace area provides seating for 80 guests, with an open-to-sky balcony overhanging the cliff and providing a unique space and seating for a further 30.
The terrace leads to the main dining room - a grand double height space where diners feel enveloped by a stylish and timeless interiors, seamlessly connected to the outside and the views beyond thanks to the expansive windows on all sides. This inner space seats 60 in the main room, with two 12-seater private dining rooms to the side.
