Savour Sunshine on a Plate

Catalonia Cooks Up Unforgettable Flavours

If there’s one thing that scores higher than napping in a sun-soaked hammock at Catalonia Hotels & Resorts, it’s a good meal. No matter where your clients’ palate pines to journey, Catalonia’s diverse range of à-la-carte restaurants and buffets have them covered – where Mexican, Spanish, Asian, Peruvian, and Mediterranean flavours are nothing less than second-helping-worthy.

“Our culinary excellence is what makes us stand out at Catalonia Hotels & Resorts,” says Greta Hidalgo, North America Sales Director MX & DR, Catalonia Hotels & Resorts. “The brand’s approach to gastronomy is influenced by Spain, especially Catalan, with local ingredients combined with classics from the modern world to create exquisite dishes.”

Let’s dig in!

Catalonia’s Cuisine Scene

Adelita Restaurant

Whether your guests are kicking up sand at a Catalonia property in Mexico or the Dominican Republic, they’re in for a lip-smacking, flavour-packed culinary feast throughout their vacation.

“In both destinations, chefs use local ingredients and there are specialty restaurants that serve the gastronomy of the area, such as the Adelita restaurant in Mexico and Yuca in the Dominican Republic,” Hidalgo notes. “In all our Caribbean properties, the gastronomic offering is quite large, as we offer different speciality restaurants like Mexican, Caribbean, Italian, and steak house.”

But some specialties stand out.

Catalonia Royal La Romana, for example, is known for its Peruvian restaurant, called Siwichi. It serves traditional Peruvian favourites like fish ceviche and tuna tiradito. Or jump right into with dessert with favourites like suspiro limeño or canelado. Savour these delights on the outdoor terrace.

The Spanish tapas at Catalonia Bayahibe’s Terrace Tapas & Lounge weave a delicious culinary experience that mixes tradition and modern flare in every bite. It’s perfect for families and those who love sampling many different flavours. Taste classic Spanish gastronomy such as patatas bravas, Galician octopus, Iberian ham croquettes or Andalusian-style calamari.

Catalonia Riviera Maya – Alebrijes Mexican Restaurant

Your clients can discover the innovative flair of Mexican specialties at Alebrijes Restaurant at Catalonia Riviera Maya. Enjoy savoury dishes, like plantains stuffed with cheese and tuna carnitas – and be sure to try the amazing pink mole.

At Catalonia Grand Costa Mujeres, it’s the Catalan-inspired Memories restaurant that shines. At Memories, you will find green onion with Mexican Romesco sauce, cured snapper, shrimp stew or socarrat rice in a reinterpretation of traditional Catalonian recipes.

“This unique selection of dishes and spectacular ambiance make Catalonia different from the regular all-inclusive resorts,” Hidalgo notes.
