The Chef Makes House Calls at The Regent Palms in Turks & Caicos

September 8, 2011 at 10:30 AM | by | ()

As you can see from our video tour, the one-bedroom suites at the The Regent Palms Turks & Caicos have full kitchens. Really pretty ones that we wish we had back home.

We didn't cook while here, of course, although we gave that Nespresso machine a good little workout. We imagine some families might cook in these rooms--the hotel even has a gourmet market near the lobby where you can buy easy-peasy ingredients to stock in that huge fridge.

But if you find yourself longing to get use out of that stove and are just too darn lazy to cook yourself, that's OK--the Regent Palms' chef will come to your suite and whip up a meal for you.

Such service does not come cheap, of course--the base price for an in-room, chef-prepared meal is $450. That's before you start paying for the food. Depending what kind of menu you'd like, that starts at $100 per person. Wine and tax and service charges are also additional.

Clearly, this could easily add up to a $1,000 dinner party, but since you can dine on your patio overlooking the calm waters of Grace Bay, it would be one pretty impressive meal. Chef Eric Vernice and sommelier J.S. Richer have serious culinary chops and can even create a super-customized wine pairing dinner for you.

In other Regent Palms food news, the hotel will be opening up a new oceanfront restaurant later this year--from the same team that's behind Parallel23, the hotel's existing fine-dining restaurant. It's in a perfect spot, too, between the hotel's infinity pool and the beach.
