Cayo Espanto, a premier luxe island resort in Belize, provides a whole new take on the luxe culinary offerings for affluent travelers. Taking into consideration dietary restrictions, preferences, holiday dishes where applicable, and more, the resort’s renowned on-island chef develops meals customized to fit the tastebuds of each guest.
“A luxe getaway is not complete without a culinary journey that exceeds all expectations weaved throughout the time spent at our private island resort,” said General Manager David Benzaquen. “The dishes and menus crafted by our on-island chef and culinary expert, Chef Patrick Houghton, are a true form of delectable art. Our guests are able to delight in a variety of flavors and techniques from around the world all masterfully combined to be presented in the meal that best speaks to each individual visitor.”
Cuisine ranging from authentically Belizean to Italian to French can all be tailored to be free of gluten or low in sodium, vegetarian or vegan friendly, pescatarian, plant-based, or any additional restrictions. Each guest is asked to complete a brief survey ahead of their stay to help the on-island team best prepare for customized meals. While menus are tailored to travelers ahead of their stay, new dishes, drinks, and snack options can be crafted during their time on the island should a specific craving occur. Every guest to the private resort is provided VIP treatment.
Holiday themes and traditions are additional possibilities when it comes to dining at Cayo Espanto. Families and couples can celebrate Christmas at an intimate lunch or dinner set-up along their own private dock, inclusive of favorited dishes and sides. Additionally, guests can choose to explore a fresh take on traditional holiday-themed menu items such as Roasted Spicy Calabaza Soup, a native Central and South American plant belonging to the gourd family, in place of a pumpkin or squash dish.
Recognizing that the presentation and background in which a meal is enjoyed play an important role in the overall experience, Cayo Espanto provides an array of settings to choose from. Freshly caught and prepared seafood while taking in the views of a day at sea aboard the resort’s private yacht, followed by a candlelit dinner with the table strategically placed for prime star gazing, are just a sampling of the dining backgrounds. The private island resort’s upcoming addition of floating trays provides a new twist on how snacks and meals can be enjoyed via each villa’s private plunge pool.
The secluded island resort creates an unforgettable getaway for every guest, inclusive of exceptional dining. For more information on Cayo Espanto, the private island resort’s culinary offerings, or to make a reservation, visit www.aprivateisland.com or call 888-666-4282.
