World Famous Dining Experience Has Residency At Vidanta Hotel
The world-famous “Dinner in the Sky” experience is coming to the Mexican Caribbean. The company will take up residency at the Vidanta Hotel Riviera Maya. It is the first time the experience has come to the area.
Those unfamiliar with the company can take its name at face value as the experience is exactly that, a meal literally in the sky.
Those brave enough to sign up for the experience will be lifted 43 meters on a crane along with 21 other diners. Guests will be strapped in with comfortable harnesses into Formula 1 style seats that can rotate around, allowing them the best view of their surroundings.
From there, it’s like any other meal. A starter, main course, and dessert will be served along with drinks, leaving guests to relax as best they can when they’re being held high off the ground for almost an hour and a half.
The experience was first created in Belgium back in 2005 and quickly caught on across the world thanks to its unique take on dining. Cities like London, Tokyo, New York, and Paris have all had Dinner in the Sky experiences take residency in their centers. Typically, the experience will open for a month or two before moving on to its next venue. Over 60 countries have hosted the experience. Several other Mexican cities have had successful experiences with the company.
The Vadanta will host Dinner in the Sky from January 10th until March 10th, 2022, leaving a two-month window for tourists to snap up a reservation. Tourists, and particularly residents at the Vadanta are expected to be the main clientele, but there is a discount for Quintana Roo locals, which will hopefully encourage a mix of cultures in mid-air.
For those expecting the elevation to take center stage in the experience, think again. Each experience’s menu is headed up by a renewed chef, so every area has food dictated to match its culture.
Taking the helm for Riviera Maya’s Dining in the Sky is Erick Santiago. Erick designed three different menus for the experience. A breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Those enjoying one of two dinner times can expect courses like a catch of the day ceviche, braised short rib, and fried tortilla with passion fruit mousse. An early morning lift-off sees guests treated to fruit plates, ranchero eggs, and waffles and ice cream.
Prices vary depending on the meal chosen for the experience. For breakfast, the cost is $135 per person. That includes all food, plus juices, mimosas, and coffee. Lunch will cost $165 and includes a cocktail before taking off, as well as beer, wine, and any juices or waters while suspended. Dinner at sunset is priced at $185 per person, also including beer, wine, and a pre-departure cocktail. The nighttime experience is priced back at $165 with the same inclusions.
With Cancun officially one of the most visited cities in the world, having Dinner in the Sky nearby seems like a smart move, both for the company and the area as a whole. A unique dining experience, made more exciting by the limited time it will remain there is undoubtedly going to be popular with visitors to the area.
It should be noted that if inclement weather occurs, the experience will not go ahead. All guests will be offered to move to another date. Be aware that Dinner in the Sky states that they do not make refunds, even in the case of a weather cancellation. To help avoid missing and losing out on money, book early in your trip to make sure you have time to rearrange for another date.
