    What's Cooking for Gourmet Discovery Dining at Sandals Resorts

    What's Cooking for Gourmet Discovery Dining at Sandals Resorts

    Imagine your favorite restaurant – what comes to mind? No doubt the food is high on the list of what makes the restaurant shine, but nowadays, the dining experience includes so much more. From the décor and lighting to the pleasant aromatic fragrances, guests require more than just good food to make a restaurant top of mind. Keeping on trend with this dining evolution requires a level of dedication to cuisine, recognizing the increasing demands and exceeding them every time – a task Sandals Resorts seems to excel in.

    Think of that favorite restaurant again and contrast that with your idea of a restaurant at an all-inclusive resort. Most people would agree that those dining experiences are very different, even complete opposites. At Sandals Resorts, however, they are not only keeping up with the sophisticated palates of their guests, but introducing them to more dining concepts than ever before. Their gourmet discovery dining program, with a name that speaks for itself, invites guests to “savour the world” through 21 unique culinary concepts and more than 160 restaurants throughout their resorts – all included, all unlimited.

    But the true culinary journey goes beyond just the food – as good as it may be. The journey begins with an ideal ambiance set for guests with music that harmonizes with each restaurant’s unique culinary concept. Bringing the journey full circle are the dining intricacies that Sandals has been sure to anticipate and deliver. This includes gluten free options; strategic partnerships with the iconic Appleton Rum and Robert Mondavi Winery, a Culinary Concierge for guests with food allergies and signature cocktails featuring local Caribbean ingredients and house-infused liquors.

    Not to say that Sandals is lacking in the food department when it comes to a decadent, gastronomic journey. With a mission to better understand global cultures through culinary arts, Sandals Resorts welcomes their guests to distinct dining concepts including Italian, Classic French, Caribbean, Seafood, English Pub Fare, Japanese Teppanyaki, Southern, Thai, Tapas, Indian and more – yes, more! Whether you’re enjoying the Skillet Seared Grouper from Schooners Seafood Grill or the Canard Bigarade from Le Jardinier, gourmet is the name of the game and Sandals Resorts is playing in the big leagues.

    Needless to say, when you sit down to enjoy a meal at one of the 15 Sandals Resorts throughout the Caribbean, it will be memorable and perhaps even nab that coveted space for number one. 

    It is an exciting journey, enjoy the ride. Bon appétit.
