With the help of our Executive Head Chef Andrew Soddy, learn how to best cook Sea Bass at L'Horizon Beach Hotel & Spa.

May is officially here and it is an exciting month as our Terrace re-opened on 3rd May, marking the start of the summer season. We’re in the second year of our refurbished Terrace and we plan for it to be bigger and better in every way.
