‘Dinner in the Sky’ began in Belgium and over 5,000 dinners have been hosted over 45 cities, including Kuala Lumpur.

Endorsed by Sabah Tourism Board, the unique experience of dining while being suspended 50 metres in the sky is available at Sutera Harbour Resort in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, this month.

State Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Seri Masidi Manjun who had a first-hand experience during the launch on Aug 1 said both locals and tourists alike are expected to be drawn to the two three-course Italian dinners that are served daily.

“I took the first ‘flight’ and what better way to experience our beautiful sunset.

“It might not be everyone’s cup of tea but then again it is something unique and even though Sabah is known for its nature as our niche, I always encourage new products here to keep visitors engaged.

“Those with a fear of heights, I suggest to them to try as you are safe. With the music playing and the chef and waiter talking to you, you would be so busy, what with eating and taking photos that you wouldn’t realise it (being high off the ground),” Masidi said after his dinner.

According to organiser TwoSpicy Entertainment, 30 percent reservations were made after just three days of opening the tickets for purchase.

Standard safety measures are in place at all times during the dinner, with seated guests wearing safety belts while standing presenter and crew are secured by safety harnesses.
