Luxury holidays have long been synonymous with all things ‘indulgent’ and never fail to cater to even the nest of tastes. When creating unforgettable holidays, food can often be a key ingredient in introducing travellers to the authentic flavour of that destination.

When it comes to culinary artistry, award-winning chefs never disappoint with their exceptional flair, such as acclaimed French three-star Michelin Chef Yannick Alléno, whose gastronomic delights can be found at One&Only The Palm, Dubai. Meanwhile in the Caribbean, Cobblers Cove in Barbados and Calabash Luxury Boutique Hotel in Grenada are both recognised for their authentic yet innovative restaurants that have helped earn them a place among the Relais & Châteaux collection.

For those wanting to learn how to recreate regional delicacies and hone new techniques, a number of properties feature their own cookery schools where guests can participate in organised classes. Four Seasons Resort, The Nam Hai located in Hoi An, offers guests a one or two day cooking academy course to discover the vibrant flavours of Vietnam and includes excursions with the hotel chef to source fresh ingredients to recreate everything from street food to haute cuisine.

Among the world’s best foodie destinations are those resorts that strive to create something altogether different, with imaginative settings and interactive concepts like ‘Fresh In The Garden’ at Soneva Fushi in the Maldives, where diners can pick fresh produce and have it prepared. Similarly, at Anantara Mai Khao Phuket Villas in Thailand, the talented chef at ‘Sea.Fire.Salt’ showcases Farm to Table and Ocean to Table cuisine alongside a salt sommelier, advising which salt is best to accompany each dish.

While our portfolio of resorts offer some of the finest dining in the world, we also work with partners in various destinations to arrange local and authentic experiences, from visiting bustling markets and sampling street food, to even learning to cook within a local home in India or Sri Lanka. Of course the foodie fun isn’t just for adults, many properties have Kids Clubs with cookery activities too.
