Our Signature Restaurants
The Ovide menu focuses on southern culinary traditions and will make you want to pull up a chair and savor every bite, from an intimate meal for two to a get-together for 10 or more. Upscale dining, small bites in the vibrant lobby bar, artisanal cocktails—and breathtaking panoramic views—at the rooftop pool and lounge, and a charming coffee market, so you’re properly fueled for wherever the day takes you.
Delicious food with a sense of place. Our signature restaurant, Ovide, embraces the local food and cherished flavors of the Gulf Coast and presents them with southern culinary traditions. Cuisines mix and mingle here to a delightful effect.
Ara, named for the constellation, is more than a leisurely day in the sun, where poolside DJs sample chill music by day and up-tempo beats by night. Cabanas offer private luxury and the menu tempts you with high-end wines, hand-crafted cocktails, and thoughtfully curated food. Come and check out the extraordinary panoramic views and stylish vibe.
