7 Tropical Resorts That Are Wowing Foodies

I don’t know what’s more annoying at tropical resorts – the daily poolside Macarena line dance lessons or the tired buffets filled with overcooked meat and lifeless produce. For years, us foodies have accepted both in an effort to spend a week in paradise. To cope, we numb our senses with an endless intake of alcohol in the name of relaxation.

Thankfully, a few resorts are starting to take note and revitalizing their cuisine to win over the ever-growing population of foodies. Here’s a list of resorts guaranteed to satisfy even the most discerning diner. So go ahead and indulge! But maybe not too much. You will be wearing a swimsuit after all…

    El Dorado Royale in Riviera Maya, Mexico

    I’m a little biased on El Dorado Royale as I’ve been there twice. Once for my honeymoon, and a second time because it’s that awesome. Not only does the all-inclusive resort boast a 100,000 square foot greenhouse on property, but they also host a dinner theatre where you get to watch and cheer for the chefs as they cook you a five-course dinner. It’s like watching the Food Network, but live on the beach.

    Fond Doux Plantation and Resort in Soufriere, Saint Lucia

    Love chocolate? Then Fond Doux Plantation and Resort is the perfect tropical resort for you. At the boutique resort and working plantation, guests can catch whiffs of cocoa as the beans dry on racks in the main courtyard. The estate-grown treat makes its way into many dishes from cocoa tea for breakfast to savory entrees and sweet desserts. Fond Doux gets extra credit as most of the ingredients used in their food comes from the estate’s organic farm. Perhaps that’s why Prince Charles visited the property?

    Speaking of the royal family — Fond Doux isn’t the only resort on this list visited by the paparazzi’s favorite family. Not only has Prince Charles visited Half Moon, but Queen Elizabeth and Prince Harry have also stayed on the property. If it’s good enough for the Windsor family, then it has to be good enough for a foodie, right?

    Half Moon’s claim to fame is the Sugar Mill Restaurant. The resort converted a historic sugar mill into a restaurant with one of the island’s most impressive wine cellars and plenty of al fresco dining space.
