Culinary Adventures October 1, 2018

If exceptional cuisine is high on your list of priorities, the following hotels and resorts all excel at tempting the taste buds.

Domes Noruz Chania, Crete, Greece

Wine connoisseurs will soon find something to love about this classy oceanfront resort which is reserved exclusively for adults. Over 160 wines are on offer at Zeen, the majority of which are sourced from small-scale local wineries. These are paired with inspired cuisine, which showcases a Cretan twist on classic dishes. If you’re in the mood for a cocktail, let the skilled mixologists at The Raw Bar know what you fancy, and they’ll create something bespoke to you, alongside mouthwatering sushi and poké bowls if you’re feeling peckish.

Rendezvous, Saint Lucia

Celebrated as the first boutique all-inclusive couples’ resort in the Caribbean, you’d be forgiven for thinking Rendezvous is all about romance. We’re here to tell you it’s about more than starry eyes and sunsets here, though, and foodies will appreciate the resort just as much as newlyweds. From sumptuous breakfasts to languorous lunches to multi-course dinners, Rendezvous encourages guests to appreciate the art of cuisine as well as each other. Don’t let the words ‘all inclusive’ put you off – wine is served by the bottle, there are three exceptional dining venues to choose from, and talented chefs produce delicious meals ranging from fine French fare at the candlelit Trysting Place to light Caribbean dishes at toes-in-the-sand Malabar Beach Club.

7 nights from £1,989 per person sharing a Premium Garden View Room on All-Inclusive.

Calabash Luxury Boutique Hotel, Grenada

Gourmands will be in heaven at Calabash, a boutique all-suite hotel that delivers some of the finest cuisine on the entire island. Their signature Rhodes Restaurant is headed up by none other than celebrity chef, Gary Rhodes, and for a week in January the man himself will be in-resort cooking and sharing his knowledge with staff and guests. Cuisine served here is of the highest standard, with menus to please all palates. You must try the Calabash signature dish, shrimp and callaloo tartlet – it’s a Calabash classic and has been on the menu for over 12 years! Other highlights include the twice-baked lobster soufflé and beef tenderloin with a caramelised onion tart.

Cobblers Cove, Barbados

Country House charm meets Caribbean Cool. This beachfront hotel fuses the elegance of an English country home with the tropical beauty of Barbados; white sands, turquoise sea, wall-to-wall sunshine, rum punch and reggae. This is complemented by an exceptional dining venue in The Camelot Restaurant which was formerly the Barbados Hotel & Tourism Association’s ‘Restaurant of the Year’. You can expect the cuisine to be of the highest calibre here; each day, freshly-caught fish is delivered, and fruit and vegetables are sourced from local organic farms. Head Chef Jason Joseph’s been at Cobblers Cove for 10 years and will create bespoke menus for private dining experiences, or take guests on a tour of the local markets to pick out ingredients.

Ozen by Atmosphere, Maldives

The words ‘all inclusive’ rarely bring to mind images of fine dining, expertly-mixed cocktails and chilled Champagne served throughout the day. But at OZEN by Atmosphere in the Maldives, that’s exactly what you’ll get, and more. Wake up to a spectacular breakfast spread accompanied by a glass of bubbles, and delight in the cuisine of six different restaurants, serving everything from colourful sushi platters at RAW, to fragrant Far Eastern cuisine at Peking. The jewel in OZEN’s crown, however, is the magnificent M6M, an underwater restaurant showcasing majestic marine views alongside immaculately prepared and presented seafood dishes.

Wine buffs have something to rejoice about here too, with a befuddling 239 different wines to choose from. A second restaurant, The Naked Fisherman, is located down by the beach, offers a laid back Caribbean vibe, and serves up mouthwatering seafood stews, lobster rolls, steaks and salads.
