Sabah will be the next stop for the Dinner In The Sky Malaysia series after Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Johor, respectively. The one-of-a-kind dining experience is endorsed by the Sabah Tourism Board and will be co-sponsored by Sutera Harbour Resort for a month, with two dinners served daily in the beautiful Kota Kinabalu skies.
"Dinner In The Sky" is a unique dinner experience that uses a crane to hoist diners, table and waiting staff 150 feet above ground, giving them an amazing bird's eye view whilst enjoying the exquisite culinary feast.
Dinner In The Sky is currently only available in Malaysia in the South East Asian region.
Already a well-known brand of entertainment, this innovative Belgian-based experience has hosted more than 5,000 dinner events in 40 cities around the world.
Iconic locations have included the Kuala Lumpur Tower, the Marina of Dubai, Villa Borghese in Rome, Athens, Copacabana Beach, and Cape Town.
Forbes magazine has called it as one of the world's Top Ten most unusual restaurants.
Some of the more notable Malaysian celebrities that have had this one of a kind experience include Dato' Siti Nurhaliza, Dato' Lee Chong Wei, Erra Fazira and Amber Chia.
Arvin Randahwa, CEO of TwoSpicy Entertainment, the company that owns the Dinner In The Sky Malaysia licenced exclusively in Malaysia said:
"We are aware that most of the major events and experiences that come into our country are targeted towards West Malaysia. However, Sabah is just so beautiful and the people here are lovely.
We, therefore, wanted to bring this 'gift' to Sabahans and the many tourists that visit it.
This is your chance to experience this world class product in your backyard and treat your loved ones, friends or corporate members for an unforgettable experience."
Sabah Tourism Board Chairman Datuk Joniston Bangkuai said this unique dining experience provides opportunities to both locals and visitors a totally different view of KK, which is from the sky! With an influx of tourists coming into Kota Kinabalu, this will definitely be one of the attractions that will be made available for them to experience and enjoy too.
While seated guests will wear safety belts, standing presenter and crew are secured by safety harnesses all the time during the flight.
A safety supervisor will brief patrons about all the safety regulations prior to the flight and will be in constant communication with the crane operator and ground crew for a smooth flight.
