Asian fusion inspired restaurant officially launches at Niramaya Villas and Spa

Southeast Asian inspired Rasa Restaurant and Lounge is holding an official launch event on Friday 8 November from 6pm, before opening to the public the following day.

Niramaya recently appointed Andrew Saville, Jared Jones and Louise St George as operators of the resort’s onsite restaurant and they will have the keys handed to them on 5 November.
Restaurant.LR.RGBRasa Restaurant and Lounge manager Andrew Saville says the concept of Rasa is to inspire people through food, wine and cocktails.

“Our vision is to provide an engaging establishment that our local community and visitors to the region can all be captivated by,” Mr Saville says.

“We aim to create more than just another restaurant, but an environment where guests can enjoy contemporary dining, relaxing at the bar or by the pool with cocktails and new foods.

“We have moved away from traditional dining courses and will offer plates designed to share so groups can experience and abundance of flavours and textures in the one sitting.”

Mr Saville says their meals will provide guests with a refined dining experience inspired by authentic Asian dishes from the likes of Thailand, Bali, Malaysia, China and Japan.

“The Asian fusion inspired dishes will be composed through and refining authenticity and street flavours, executed through east and west techniques,” Mr Saville says.

“We’ll be dabbling with the chemistry of foods, deconstructing classic dishes and applying modern techniques to heighten the senses of taste, smell, colour and texture.”

Mr Saville says they are bringing a unique fusion of flavours to the region and thus anticipate the official launch to be a memorable event.

“Guests to this exclusive preopening event will be treated to drinks and canapés upon arrival followed by a degustation dinner and a live acoustic musician,” Mr Saville says.

“Jared will be doing a molecular gastronomy demonstration and the state’s Bacardi cocktail brand ambassador Sean Foresyth is flying up from Brisbane for a cocktail flaring display.”

Mr Saville and his partners are collaborating their combined years experience in all areas of hospitality, from the kitchen and customer service to function and event management.

Tickets for this exclusive event are $99 per person. You must RSVP by 4 November to or by calling 07 4099 1855.

Rasa Restaurant and Lounge will be open to locals for lunch from 11-5pm and for dinner from 6-9pm from Saturday 9 November.
