Boabdil’s Lair

Boabdil’s Lair


Experience Medieval Spain and a restaurant cast in the name of one of her most famous, controversial and last Islamic rulers, Boabdil. Boabdil’s Lair reconstructs late 15th century, with Spanish Queen Isabella 1 staging what is considered the last phase of Reconquista: The  siege at Granada.

After a day trekking or at sports, whet your appetite like a tired soldier. Sit inside a modern-day version of Moorish-Andalusian tent, introspecting about life and its quirkish challenges at Boabdil’s Lair, as you enjoy timeless Spanish culinary delights cooked to perfection by our celebrity chefs. 

Set on a sandy dune surrounded by a fresh water moat, Boabdil’s Lair is a place to relax and rejuvenate. Expect traditional live Moorish/Arabic music, coupled with Belle dance and light & sound shows about life and times of Boabdil. During the weekends and on request, the house DJ plays sizzling beats and modern songs, to create the perfect fusion of time and place.

Earth and copper-ware used to cook and serve are well known to preserve food longer, taste better and possess healing power, as per the ‘Ayurveda’ and ‘Copper Development Association’.
