Riviera Maya Vacation Rentals with Personal Chef Service
Riviera Maya is known for its beautiful beaches, tropical climate and vegetation, luxurious resorts, friendly locals and last but not least excellent food, no matter if seafood, traditional Mexican or international cuisine. The resort towns Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum are home to a large number of gourmet restaurants run by celebrity chefs as well as to five-star luxury resorts with “all-inclusive” dining options. However, an increasing number of luxury vacation rentals, now go a step further, offering its guests private chef service. An approach focused on an “all-exclusive” experience, rather than “all-inclusive” for the masses. A personal chef is a special treat for every gourmet, offering completely personalized, flexible high-end service for the guests, right at the villa.
Most private chefs have worked at first-class restaurants and hotels and every villa usually has an established, extensive menu with dozens of signature dishes to choose from. In addition to that, before the guests’ arrival, preference sheets will be created for every single guest reflecting special requests, favorite dishes, food allergies, etc. This way, chefs will be able to cater to the guests’ needs and cravings, whether it’s a light and healthy snack by the pool, a multi-course themed dinner, a BBQ or a fresh seafood. A private chef is also able to cater to special dietary needs, religious restrictions or food allergies. Chefs can add vegetarian, vegan, low-carb, dairy-free, Kosher, Halal or Hindi options to the menus upon request.
With selected properties, chef service is already included in the price of the rental. Guests will only have to pay the actual price of food and beverages purchased by the house staff. Fresh and high-quality produce, meat, seafood, and alcoholic drinks are considerably cheaper in Mexico than for example in the US or Europe, so the additional cost is only $25 and $50 per person per day, including drinks, depending on the number of meals and the guests’ individual preferences. A truly unbeatable deal for a five-star dining experience!
