Planning to visit the spectacular Temurun Waterfall or to enjoy a scenic ride along the winding road that leads through the pristine Machinchang Geoforest Park in the northwest of Langkawi? If so, the ‘Hornbill Café’ is the perfect spot for a leisurely lunch or dinner break!

While part of the award-winning ‘Els Club Teluk Datai’ which has many believe that access is exclusive to elite club members and avid golf players - the café is open to public. So a great opportunity to enjoy a lovely meal and great service in a truly amazing setting!

With a magnificent backdrop of the marbled limestone peaks of the Gunung Machinchang mountain, the café is facing perfectly manicured lawns flanked by a 10 million years old rainforest that stretches all the way to the turquoise Andaman Sea. So while you wait for your meal to be served, you may catch sight of hornbills, spot a family of dusky leaf monkeys and with some luck, you may even get to see an eagle returning to his nest in the canopy of a nearby tree.

If stopping by for a drink, you will enjoy the outdoor terrace with cozy sofas and rustic tables made of tree stumps. A creamy Café Latte and a strong Espresso are available as much as the undisputed local favorite, Teh Tarik! If you prefer cold beverage, order a freshly pressed tropical juice, enjoy a draught Tiger or Heineken or relish the wonderful view in style - sipping ‘Ernie Els Sauvignon Blanc’ or the golf legend’s ‘Ernie Els Signature’ wine.

Once ready to order a meal, take a seat in the breezy indoors furnished with dining tables. If in the mood for a light snack, savor a ‘Twister Wrap’ with a roasted chicken, tomato-onion salsa, pesto mayonnaise, guacamole and cheese wrapped in a tortilla. Staying for a three-course meal? Start with the crunchy Caesar Salad with sundried cherry tomatoes, anchovies and crispy croutons, topped with parmesan cheese. Best followed by ‘Fettuccine Aglio Olio’ topped with grated parmigiana cheese or by ‘The Els Club Homemade Burger’ with grilled beef bacon, fried egg, cheese and caramelized onions served with fries.

If you would like to enjoy a local favorite, opt for ‘Chicken Rice’ that comes with a flavorsome chicken soup and is accompanied by a steamed pak choy, homemade chili sambal and minced ginger. Complete your dining experience with the ‘Teluk Datai Cendol’ - a local dessert served on shaved ice and made of rich coconut milk, red beans, glutinous rice, creamed corn, grass and green jelly and palm sugar.

Far too enchanted by the surroundings to leave after you finished your meal?! Take a short buggy ride to the shores of the Andaman Sea, stay for a tennis game or roll a few putts on the putting green. Who knows, you may get so excited - the next time you visit, you will book an introductory class with one of the skilled Troon Golf instructors.

By the way. If planning a private event - make sure you ask for a tour of the ‘Els Lounge’ on the first floor.

An amazing venue with a breathtaking view - just perfect for a birthday party or a truly intimate wedding with the ceremony taking place on the dreamlike shores!
