Shangri-La's Boracay Resort and Spa’s three-day gustatory affair “Reservations in Paradise” launched its third cycle last March 7-9, 2014, in partnership with Bacchus International, Inc.
The exclusive gourmet weekend event is an organized festival with cocktails and dinner parties for an intimate set of 50 persons. It offers the ultimate indulgence for epicures and wine connoisseurs, featuring food, wine and leisure experience in a luxury destination.
Set against the famed Boracay sunset, the culinary journey commenced at 5.30pm in Lobby Lounge with cocktails and wine apéritif from JM Cazes. Apéritif was followed by a seaside formal dinner at 7pm, at the resort’s exclusive beachfront. The evening was inspired by the French châteaux staging the five-course menu by Executive Chef Scott Brands and Italian Chef Marco Ghezzi, paired with wines from Château Lynch Bages’ represented by managing director, Jean Baptiste Cheylac. The evening continued with cigars and pralines, a nightcap under the stars.

After the refreshing brunch, guests were offered various leisure activities available at the resort, such as sailing, golf or a relaxing afternoon massage at CHI, The Spa.
