Upon entering, we were welcomed with a drink - wine or a selection of beers - and were presented with a lei garland (girls) or straw hat (guys). We were also welcomed with a steel band who were playing a lot of Daft Punk:
It was very Caribbean inspired with sand, a surf board balance challenge (set up like a rodeo bull), a variety of funfair / seaside type games, a steel band, a few arcade games and games consoles rigged up, hula dance classes, and.... pick 'n' mix.
What really captured my attention was the food. They presented us with a Caribbean BBQ with wonders like mountain goat curry, sweet potato and plantain:
I planned on going back for seconds, but they offered such generous portions, there was no need:
I'd never tried goat before, but it was actually a very tasty meat and it contrasted nicely with the sweetness of the plantain and sweet potato. My favourites however were the fish curry - which melted in your mouth - and the vegetable fritters. For dessert, we had half a mini pineapple each which was filled with exotic fruits and clotted cream ice cream:
After we ate, we indulged in pick 'n' mix and explored the grounds, following moss covered paths:
What I wore:
My new Zara cami and skorts, black court heels, and an oversized chunky knit to keep the chill off. Plus my yellow lei of course!
Thanks to Savil Court Hotel & Spa for hosting this event - I had a lovely time and look forward to staying with you again in the future
