The Food

In 2008, Michael Leibl, the executive chef at The Singapore Resort and Spa Sentosa, decided that he wanted to introduce a restaurant that complemented the spa's philosophy. The result is The Garden, a gracious eatery set in a restored colonial bungalow on the resort's grounds, next to Spa Botanica.

With an artificial tree as its centerpiece, the restaurant is a petite space, with an open kitchen and alfresco dining by the spa's pool. While the restaurant's goal is to introduce diners to healthy eating - icons on the menu help indicate which dishes are antioxidant-rich, heart-friendly and cholesterol reducing - Liebl is also keen to reduce The Garden's carbon footprint; organic and biodynamic ingredients are used, the latest energy efficient technology was installed in the kitchen, and the absence of table linens cuts down on water and electricity consumption. That's not to say the food is neglected.

"Ingredients are also paired with the best cooking methods to retain their beneficial components, for instance, fish is served mostly raw or cooked sous vide," says Leibl.
