Grand Velas Luxury Cuisine

While some all-inclusive resorts may be content with providing basic foods in overcooked buffets with no real flavor, Grand Velas Riviera Maya and Riviera Nayarit strive to provide gourmet cuisine at every turn.

The luxurious Grand Velas resorts put gourmet cuisine at the top of the priority list, and yes, gourmet options are always included.

“The best aspect of Grand Velas is their food,” says Jacque Busby, president of Luxe Travel. Grand Velas Riviera Maya Gourmet appetizers“Every dish is gourmet, and each meal is a new culinary experience.”

The restaurants at Grand Velas Riviera Maya and Riviera Nayarit stand apart from restaurants in other all-inclusive resorts, turning their kitchens into contenders with the top luxury resort restaurants, and even competitors for independent gourmet restaurants.

While many all-inclusive resorts, even those claiming to be luxury resorts, offer wine, spirits and beers, they often charge extra for top-shelf names. Grand Velas restaurants and bars only offer top-shelf options, and yes, they’re always included.

“Our restaurants are comparable to the finest free-standing restaurants in any of the world’s leading culinary capitals,” says Patrick Louis, corporate executive chef and F&B director at Grand Velas.
