Is it worth giving the much-hyped ‘floating breakfast' at Heritance Aarah a shot? The answer can only be in the affirmative. Making the good ol’ breakfast in bed an obsolete concept, Heritance Aarah’s latest offering is for the select few. Set amid the cool waters of the infinity pool with a gorgeous view of the sylvan surroundings, the floating breakfast at Heritance Aarah is the ultimate indulgence. The credit for the lavish spread mainly goes to the kitchen and service staff. The large floating tray is packed with spectacular breakfast delicacies including the likes of papaya, lime and chia seed smoothies, egg white omelette, frothy cappuccino, pancakes topped with cherries and waffles dunked in sinful chocolate sauce. However, the showstopper was undoubtedly the crisp, fresh salad.
A perfect accompaniment with pretty much everything, the flavour and textures incorporated are quite refreshing. A combination of lettuce, edamame, tomatoes and light vinaigrette, I honestly cannot wait get to indulge in this beautiful creation again. The liquid gold latte is a great way to end the meal. The turmeric-infused immunity booster simply jazzes up your breakfast and serves as a much-needed morning jolt.
