From popular pairing menus and irresistible Afternoon Teas, to extensive and lavish Degustation Menus and private wine tastings, there are more epicurean delights available to savour than ever before. Guests can indulge their taste buds and devote time to their palates within sophisticated city hotels, lavish resorts or unique boutique lodges across the globe. For those seeking out new flavours, ingredients and creative combinations, many hotels now encourage budding gourmands to become more ‘hands-on’, granting rare access to the hotel’s kitchen garden, helping to harvest produce or shop in local markets for the freshest possible local ingredients, before being able to cook in the sanctum of the resort kitchen under the guiding expertise of the resident chef.
Expert Sommeliers will then also be on hand to advise on the perfect pairing. For those who seek a little more refinement, our collection holds an abundance of Michelin Star rated, plus award-wining, fine dining venues, such as the highly acclaimed La Goélette at Royal Palm Mauritius. This romantic, open-air restaurant serves international cuisine infused with Mauritian flare, with award-winning chef, Michel de Matteis using only the finest fresh, regional ingredients to create specialities, such as his gourmet creoles. With cuisine forming such an integral part of any luxury hotel stay, guests are left replete whether they yearn for scrumptious and hearty bistro fare, delicately light pastries, fine dining or healthy raw foods and juices. Culinary classes or foodie experiences will also leave them with plenty to digest long after they return home.
