Nearly every turn at the resort is met with an unforgettable scent, a mix of orange blossom, jasmine, salt and aromatic herbs. Thanks to the more than 320 varieties of plants and flowers that have been introduced by founder Prince Alfonso von Hohenlohe, our gardens serve as a major point of inspiration for our gastronomic offering, from our bespoke tea collection to dishes at the Grill.
Our mixologists – devoted to the art of devising and creating cocktails for our guests in places like the Champagne Room – find new ways of spinning the classics thanks to fruits and herbs found throughout the resort.
The signature Sau Sau, for example, can amplify its acidity with the calamondín, a hybrid between the orange and a kumquat, resulting in a small, hard and compact fruit with a sweet exterior and acid pulp. Rich in Vitamin C, the calamondín also bears a white aromatic flower – the perfect combination to decorate and naturally infuse our Summer Bar.
