The Vegan Food

The menus at Alunan Resort have multiple veggie options that are clearly labelled which is always a good start. So with a little help from the friendly team, we were able to enjoy a wide array of vegan food during our stay. Whether it was the specially prepared overnight oats with soya milk and freshly squeezed juices at breakfast, we certainly didn’t go hungry at Alunan Resort. Oat milk and soy milk was available upon request for your morning coffee or afternoon avocado gula Melaka smoothie, whilst our lunches ay ‘Bayu’ included turmeric fried tempeh, curried chick pea salads, veggie lamb masala and pumpkin noodle soup.

Don’t miss out on the outstanding Italian cuisine whilst watching sunset over the water from the aptly named ‘Sunset Deck’. Open every day from mid afternoon, the views are truly remarkable with the sun performing chameleon like changes to the seemingly never ending colour palette. The super friendly team arranged a final meal of mixed mushroom risotto, penne arrabbiata, vegan pizza and balsamic dressed salad which was a truly memorable Italian feast and a culinary highlight from our stay at Alunan Resort.

The Vegan Essentials

The team at Alunan Resort are certainly leading from the front when it comes to sustainability. We believe that all hotels and resorts have a responsibility to adapt their business in order to lessen their impact. That often starts with the reduction of single use plastic in the form of plastic straws and plastic water bottles, but there is so much more that can be done which is clear to see at Alunan Resort. There are water refill stations throughout the resort where you can refill your bottles, and water in the restaurants is served in refillable glass bottles. The bathroom amenities are not only in refillable dispensers, but they are reef safe and made from chemical free, plant based ingredients, laundry is also done using a natural detergent. This respect for the reef doesn’t stop there, they have created the Alunan Coral Project which since 2017 has continued to ‘plant’ coral on their own reef, whilst at the same time educate their guests to treat the reefs with respect. This fantastic initiative is headed by their in house marine biologist, Ms Aini, her passion and enthusiasm for Alunan Coral Project is clear to see and hearing her talk about their efforts is inspiring.
