Experiencing new flavours is one of the most exciting parts of a holiday. When you head to the Caribbean, you have a whole world of distinctive options to explore. Include lots of fun sampling in your visit by adding these experiences to your holiday agenda.

Indulge in Local Flavours at the Jerk Hut

If you notice some enticing aromas wafting your way as you float around the lazy river, you’re probably nearing the Jerk Hut. This delicious dining option is located on the Splash pool deck beside the river. It features some delectable new menu items and opens five days a week for lunch. The Jerk Hut specializes in rich local flavours, like the popular jerk chicken and pork. A juicing machine is on hand to supply fresh squeezed sugar cane juice for something sweet to complement your meal.

Discover New Favourites with a Rum Tasting

If your stay at Coconut Bay lasts for a week or more, you’ll have the opportunity to attend at least one rum tasting. This is the perfect chance to experience some different flavours and brands. You can explore your darker side with a rich dark rum, or test out the lighter options like a white variety.

Rum originated in the Caribbean, and there’s no better place to sample its delights. Coconut Bay features an award-winning selection that includes several rums produced right here in Saint Lucia, like Bounty and Chairman’s Reserve. You may just discover a new favourite to request when you head out to one of the resort’s bars, like Coconut Bay’s popular Sugar Cane Rum Bar.

Expand Your Horizons with a Caribbean Cooking Demonstration

Are you interested in taking some of the distinctive flavours of the Caribbean home with you? Learn how at one of the resort’s new cooking demonstrations. Chef Martha offers weekly classes that will show you how to make popular local dishes. Learn how coal pots are used in St. Lucia cooking, or discover the proper way to cook with unfamiliar ingredients. These demonstrations are appropriate for all audiences, whether you’re a seasoned chef or a kitchen novice. Chef Martha’s demonstrations are informal so you can drop by and observe at any time.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to broaden your culinary horizons and branch out beyond the traditional English favourites. Get a bold taste of the Caribbean with everything from freshly carved meats to locally produced rum. Your taste buds will rejoice during your next visit to Coconut Bay.
