Holiday Type / Foodie Escapes

Rather than merely celebrating regional cuisine, a growing number of luxury hotels are elevating rustic recipes into a epicurean experience worthy of their surroundings. Chinese grandmother's dishes are infused with caviar, Maldivian wahoo is transformed into sashimi; tortellini are stuffed with blue crab. But the foodie journey does not end there. Diners can be seated underwater in a natural aquarium in the Maldives, watch their chef line-fish Mahi Mahi in Antigua or sample over 500 different whiskies at one of Cape Town's premier addresses. From international festivals that play host to Michelin-starred chefs to specialist wine tastings and gourmet safaris, luxury hotels now lead the way in gastronomic tourism.
