Indulge in the Exceptional
Great food experiences are at the heart of every Luxury Gold journey. We understand that as our guest, a variety of different dining experiences is important, rather than simply dining at the hotel every night, however good it may be.
You may find yourself indulging in Michelin-star fare one evening and diving into the street food scene the following day on a foodie tour. From private cooking classes with culinary masters to marvellous lunches at vineyards, dining is a highlight of your journey, rather than just meal time.
We are very selective in who we work with and choose to only work with restaurants and food venues that take the health and well-being of our guests as seriously as we do and agree to meet expected guidelines and specifications. We only work with establishments that we are confident will consistently adhere to our standards.
Food is a huge part of travel and you can truly delve into the soul of a destination through the dining experiences that have been carefully selected for your journey. Discover some of the exceptional culinary experiences you will find on Luxury Gold journeys.
Lunch or dinner at a Michelin star restaurant, a gastronomic high point, is included on many Luxury Gold journeys. We also visit fine-dining restaurants acclaimed by other leading industry guides such as Zagat, AAA Diamond and Forbes. Prepare for the meal of a lifetime!
