As the weather turns cold and thoughts turn to winter getaways, many of us plan our travels looking for something good to eat. But many of us—those with kids, on a limited budget, or simply sapped of the energy to wander the streets in search of sustenance—want a more traditional vacation experience with guaranteed good eats. These are a few of our favorite foodie resorts, notable for their great accommodations as well as superior dining.
The CuisinArt Resort & Spa, Anguilla, British West Indies: As you might expect from a place that bears the same name as several appliances you probably have in your kitchen, food has always been central to the focus at this mid-size property on the tiny island of Anguilla. A five-star resort in every way, they boast comfortable rooms, one of the best spas on the island, an impressive wine cellar, and a hydroponic farm that grows fresh vegetables and herbs for the resort’s top-notch Mediterranean-style cuisine.
Encantado, Santa Fe, New Mexico: The spirit of Santa Fe is embodied in the fresh seasonal ingredients flavored with local influences, like indulgently savory suckling pig and light, flavorful spa cuisine. Their signature restaurant, Terra, is a favorite with visitors and locals alike, headed by Charles Dale, a Food +Wine Best New Chef in 1996 and two-time nominee for Best American Chef in the Southwest by the James Beard Foundation.
El Dorado Royale Resort and Spa in Riviera Maya, Mexico: For those searching for an all-inclusive experience, this expansive luxury resort offers their Gourmet Inclusive, which has received accolades from Conde Nast Traveler, AAA, Wine Spectator, and other expert publications. The El Dorado brand is well-respected across all their resorts, but the Royale features seven exceptional restaurants with a 14-day menu rotation, so you’ll never experience the same meal twice.
The Mansion on Peachtree, Atlanta, Georgia: This intimate boutique hotel is in the upscale Buckhead neighborhood on the north side of the city, and a uniquely pleasurable way to experience Atlanta. The two restaurants on the property are a study in contrast, from the light, airy breakfast parlor, NEO, to the dark-wood, modern Craft Atlanta and Craftbar, Tom Colicchio’s restaurant concept imported from New York, with a more formal Craft upstairs and the smaller, more casual Craftbar, both serving fresh, American cuisine.
WaterColor Inn & Resort, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida: Located on a quiet strip of Florida's panhandle, the hotel offers several different kinds of vacation experiences, from rooms at an inn to poolside resort rooms to vacation home rentals, all united by the unique dining experience at Fish Out Of Water, the resort's restaurant, where fresh fish is plucked from local waters, and guests are invited to join one of the chefs on a fishing expedition to see their dinner in its natural habitat.
