Luxury Living: Cabana Dining At The Delano
It's one of the hippest hotels on South Beach. The place to be and be seen. Well now, the Delano is taking Luxury Living one step further with a new kind of dining experience that will truly have you asking for seconds.
(WSVN) -- You know it for it's fine food, luxurious spa, plush, white rooms and it's scenic pool.
Now, the Delano is offering another luxury experience... Cabana Dining.
Delano Food and Catering Director, Pascal Billard says, "It's very exclusive because you have your own server dedicated for the evening."
Your romantic night out begins with a greeting from your personal butler, who escorts you to either the hotel's luxury spa, Agua, or an outdoor cabana for a pre-dinner massage.
Pascal says, "You can choose your massage. You can choose the kind of massage you want. The length of the massage, if you want half an hour, an hour, an hour-and-a-half, two hours."
"I love being outside and being with the music and with the people."
Once those kinks and knots are gone, it's time for dinner in your very own, poolside cabana... Complete with it's very own TV and radio.
Pascal says, "We are the first ones to do it on the beach and I think we have the best location, the Delano by the poolside cause we have all the ideal cabana that are really made for that."
Diner Mario Stocco says, "The minute you walk through the doors it's like you're in a different world. You wouldn't think like you're in the U.S. here. I feel like I'm in Bali, Thailand."
Dine by candlelight, on h'ordeourves and champagne.
Or try the restaurant's Russian caviar, which will set you back anywhere from 70 to 145-dollars for an ounce.
From seafood to sushi... the main course will WOW you.
Pascal says, "You can choose one course through the whole extensive five course meal, pair it with wine or you can choose on the spot what kind of drinks you want."
Tonya Sanchez says, "They've picked the best, basically from the menu for this dinner. It's great. It's fabulous."
Whether it's a romantic night out under the moonlight for two, or a dinner for 6, it'll be a night you'll never forget.
Pascal says, "It's Luxury Living. It can't be more luxury than this."
