Elegant Hotels calls on foodies to come and enjoy Barbados' Food and Rum Festival in October

Elegant Hotels is keen to forward an invitation to every potential guest this coming autumn by giving them another reason to head here in October (as if the Caribbean beauty and the Barbadian flair weren't enough!) by celebrating the Barbados Food and Rum Festival with a big bang. When guests stay at any of Elegant Hotels' luxury properties between 18th and 21st October they'll also be immersed in amazing culinary experiences.

Elegant Hotels calls on foodies to come and enjoy Barbados' Food and Rum Festival in October

Elegant Hotels is going one step further in the celebration of the Barbados Food and Rum Festival 2018 this coming October by offering its guests unique, flavoursome ways in which to experience the island's vibrant culinary culture, right on their premises.

Announcing the launch of their Gourmet Safari Dine Around, selected Elegant Hotels properties will offer bespoke wining (or should we say rumming?) and dining options, thus adding their own spin to a Barbadian weekend of gastronomic festivities.

Thanks to Elegant Hotels' own food-themed celebrations, guests will be able to feast on an exclusive Storied Rum Dinner at the brand new "Rum Vault" in Colony Club or dig into delicious Italian cuisine at The Taste of Italy dinner held at "Daphne's" restaurant. Families will love tucking into the tantalising flavours of Tamarind's "Beach BBQ" while couples indulge in an Art and Wine themed dinner at "Tapestry", a restaurant in Treasure Beach Hotel, an adults-only property.

Pulling out all the stops with delectable dining events at a selection of their beautiful all-inclusive beachfront resorts and restaurants, Elegant Hotels is going the extra mile to put a smile on their guests' faces during this annual edition of the Barbados Food and Rum Festival. Lucky guests and keen foodies will be able to embark on an exciting culinary journey thanks to their amazing dine around option in selected hotel restaurants and featuring international cuisines.

Speaking about Elegant Hotels' exceptional celebration of Barbados Food and Rum Festival 2018, Sergio Garcia-Gonzalez, Head of Marketing at The Holiday Place, said:

"The Barbados Food and Rum Festival is one of the top events for foodies wanting to combine their love of food with an exciting Caribbean holiday. Every year the organisers put on a fantastic show with some amazing chefs and superb colourful locations.

"The trendy, sophisticated vibe you find in all the resorts in the Elegant Hotels collection is the perfect match for a discerning traveller looking to enjoy this event to the fullest and Barbados in general."

The ninth edition of the Barbados Food and Rum Festival will be celebrated between 18th and 21st October with an interesting line-up of events to get involved in, from the opening party with the Oistins Gardens Cook-Off on Thursday to The Signature Rum Event held the following day, showcasing exciting food and rum pairings. Then there's the Polo Rum Spirits party held on Saturday afternoon, accompanied by canapes and followed by fine dining events in the evening with the joint participation of international and local top chefs. The festival reaches a climax on Sunday with a massive beach party at the Hilton Resort Barbados, followed by a final gourmet dinner at a signature local restaurant, whose name hasn't been disclosed yet.

More details on getting festival tickets and a full line-up of events islandwide to celebrate Barbados Food and Rum Festival 2018 will be revealed as the date nears, so watch this space.
