The name “Nido,” which in English translates to “nest,” is well suited for the restaurant. The design is inspired by that of a twig nest you’d be likely to find in nature.

A network of walkways around the restaurant connect the pool, hotel, and restaurant to each other, making it a dramatic journey to travel from one place to the next.

Sitting below the water level surrounding it, the restaurant has a minimal interior with white chairs, bar tables, lounges, and a long, centrally located table running the length of it.

At night, lights around the perimeter of the restaurant come on and cast a soft glow through the woven roof to create an otherworldly look and emphasize its floating appearance.
