Chang Thai

The secret is in harmony. Immerse yourself in delicious Thai cuisine and travel to Bangkok through each of our dishes. Curries, vegetables, rice ... a festival of flavors and sensations that you cannot miss. What do you feel like today? A succulent pad thai? A delicious tom kha kai soup? Or an intense green chicken curry?


  • You will understand why Italian cuisine is the world's favorite. From the decoration to the food, passing through the aromas of tomato and basil… Portofino exudes Mediterranean culture. Travel to Naples with a slice of margherita pizza, wander through Tuscany with a bite of steak alla Fiorentina and visit the eternal città with each of our delicious pasta dishes: pesto, amatriciana, alle vongole… Mamma mía!

  • Deliciously healthy. Japanese cuisine is based on the quality of its fresh products and the purity of food. Enjoy a wide selection of sushi, sashimi, seaweed, and tempuras. Attend the preparation of your dishes in the front row at their teppanyaki tables, accompany the night with sake and sweeten the evening with an exquisite mochi.


  • Spices, aromas and a lot of color. Travel to India through gastronomy and enjoy each of our chefs' preparations: rice, samosas, naans, tandooris and delicious traditional sauces to accompany meats and vegetables. Be seduced by the nuances of Indian cuisine and savor its culture at our Bhogali restaurant.

The Adelita

  • La Adelita tastes like Mexico. It tastes like corn, it tastes like beans, it tastes like avocado, it tastes like cochinita pibil. And why not? It tastes like tequila and it tastes like pleasure. The pleasure of enjoying Mexican cuisine, of surrendering to a parade of flavors in the mouth, where none stands out and all are present: acidic, salty, spicy ... Mexico has it all.

Chic Cabaret & Restaurant

  • Where gastronomy and entertainment share the stage. Between dim lights, music and live performances, the best culinary experience emerges to create a unique evening. Touch, taste, hearing, sight, smell ... Cabaret puts all your senses to the test. Let the show begin!

Xtra Time Sports Bar

Eclipse Bar

  • For those who do not want to miss anything. Panoramic views where you can enjoy the sunset, cocktail in hand and background music. The social hour to share experiences and let yourself go.

Bar Piacere

  • Arabica, robust, from Colombia or Kenya. Espresso, ristretto or latte, in the variety is the taste. There is nothing more personal or more intense than coffee, and in our Coffee Shop we have them all. Breakfast 8:00 a.m.-12:00 am

Healthy bar

  • A water circuit, a massage and a revitalizing juice. Mango, apple, pineapple, carrot ... made from fruits and vegetables, but always natural. The beginning and the end of a tribute to the body and soul in our exclusive Healthy Bar. ** Exclusively for Zentropia Palladium Spa & Wellness clients
