About Manava

All Day dining, A colorful environment straight out of Paul Gaugin’s Tahitian paintings, ‘Manava’, meaning "Welcome" in Tahitian, provides all day dining, offering a succulent buffet selection of international cuisine. Striking a perfect balance between fresh and peaceful, guests are invited to bask in the ambience either inside amongst the tranquil sounds of flowing water, or out on the terrace. Adorned with the artistic masterpieces of the esteemed Paul Gauguin and Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Manava engages guests with a vibrant surrounding of Tahitian inspired Art Nouveau mastery, dedicating a separate room for each artist’s work.

Il s'agissait de notre 3eme dîner au Manava et c'était encore parfait. Les mets étaient plein de saveur et le service toujours aussi attentionné. Autant de constance dans la qualité et le service est rare. La personne qui s'occupait de nous (Htar) est très attentionnée, souriante, plaisante... Le chef l'est tout autant. Il vient en salle, agrémente vos mets pour que ca corresponde le mieux à vos souhaits gustatifs. Il prend de surcroît le temps de vous expliquer les plats... quel plaisir C'est vraiment une excellente équipe. Le Manava est un Restaurant que nous recommandons. Le meilleur de l'hôtel selon nous car constant dans le service et la qualité des plats variés proposés. Merci à toute l'équipe et félicitations

Manava est un restaurant-Buffet. Nous y sommes allés deux fois et à chaque fois le constat a étéle meme : Excellent !!! Il est souvent indiqué comme d'une qualité inférieure aux restaurants Porterhouse et Moana, deux autres restaurants du Sofitel. Je ne suis pas d'accord avec cela. Le Manava, pour moi, fait parti des meilleurs voire est le meilleur. Il a deux grandes qualités : - un personnel d'une extrême gentillesse, attentionné et qui souhaite vous faire plaisir : le chef est venu pour adapter le plat à ce que j'aimais et le service assuré par Htar était plus que parfait (tellement d'attention) - une qualité des mets proposés constante et plus précisément excellente : des plats avec beaucoup de saveur. Les entrées et les plats sont vraiment très bons. Un délice pour les papilles. Vraiment toutes mes félicitations au chef, à ses équipes et aux personnes en salle. C'était un réel plaisir à chaque venue

Bohužel mne jídlo neoslovilo. Nabídka jídel malá a slabá. Ve srovnání s hotelem Rixos na Palmě, absolutně nedostačující. Jídlo bylo průměrné, ale bez výrazných chuťových nápadů. Prostě oběd.

Wir hatten einen Groupon für das Essen und "free-flowing Mocktails". Das Essen war in Ordnung, aber Mocktails haben ich ganze zwei trinken können, die Karte wurde immer erst auf Nachfrage gebracht und es dauerte ewig bis serviert wurde. Erst beim zweiten Bestellen wurde uns dann gesagt, dass das free-flowing nur nur für 2 von 4 Mocktails galt ... Immerhin wurden uns die bis dahin schon bestellten Mocktails nicht in Rechnung gestellt. Insgesamt haben wir uns dort. Icht wirklich willkommen gefühlt.

It was my second time to visit Manava, and I honestly felt disappointed. The first time I went there was great and there were a lot of food selections, but I think the first time I went was on a Thursday which is why there were a lot of selections. My second time was on a Monday, and it disappointed me as I was celebrating a special day, and when I arrived and saw the limited food selections, I was a bit upset. It didn't add anything special to my special day. I could have gone to another restaurant instead.

Excellent service. We could do with some Indian vegetarian food though. We were given 2 surprise cakes for the occasions we were celebrating. The cakes came in after we had our dinner. We could not enjoy the cakes, it would be a good idea to receive the guests with the surprise element before or during their food. Overall we liked the service, food and ambience. Thanks to the staff and management Shanthi
