On the cusp of introducing five new all-inclusive Caribbean properties, Royalton Luxury Resorts has been honored with a trio of Golden Apple Awards at Apple Vacations’ annual ceremony held on Sept. 12. Joining Royalton Punta Cana that hauled in its third consecutive award are first time winners Royalton Riviera Cancun and Royalton White Sands.

The “people’s choice” distinction is based on the multi-faceted Apple Vacations Satisfaction questionnaire filled out by travelers upon completion of their Apple vacation. Only those properties receiving an average score of 83 or higher are eligible to receive the honor. 

"People's choice awards like the Golden Apple build consumer confidence and influence purchasing decisions, so we feel quite honored to have three luxury resorts recognized," said Jordi Pelfort, managing director of Royalton Luxury Resorts. "This serves as a testament to Royalton Luxury Resorts' commitment to providing exceptional service."

Royalton Riviera Cancun and its sister Hideaway at Royalton Riviera Cancun are also gaining distinction among that destination’s all-inclusives with the new C/X Culinary Experience. Adult guests can graze on superb cuisine at the exclusive private chef's table for $80 USD per person. The Hideaway at Royalton Riviera is an adults-only retreat, while Royalton Riviera Cancun is also welcomes families.

"C/X Culinary Experience is already successful at CHIC Punta Cana by Royalton Luxury Resorts, and based on guest satisfaction, we've opened this artisanal concept here," says Francisco Jorge, general manager of Royalton Riviera Cancun. "This chef's table is where dining transforms into art with its presentation and flavor, and I'm certain our guests will enjoy this premium experience."

Prepared in an open kitchen, cuisine is served in ceremonial style that transports each guest through seven courses that are each presented with its own musical soundtrack.

The fare affair begins with a choice of Yellowfin Tuna, Foie Gras, King Crab served Acapulco style or Duck Magret in a Tamarind Glaze. Following Pumpkin Blossoms and Sorbet to cleanse the palate, the cuisine adventure continues with Sea Bass a la talla, Sea Scallops on Truffle Oil Risotto or Black Angus tenderloin. A Chocolate Course signals the grand finale.
