Slow Gastronomy by Garden Hotels

The Slow Life movement and its many variants related to a more authentic model of life, linked to traditions, local cuisine and products grown without additives on the estates of a lifetime has become a motivation for travel and an attractive quality when it comes to choosing holiday accommodation. In Spain, chains like Garden Hotels are being the pioneers in bringing this attitude and philosophy of life to the usual vacation hotels.

 

It attempts to say goodbye to the concept of beach resort in classic Spain. Travelers of the 21st century no longer look for a corner where they just park their stress and rest in the sun. In addition to all that, they ask for differential added values ​​that are what finally allows the sector to consolidate its position as an international destination, beyond the attractions of the chosen place to spend those days of relaxation.

 

Some hotel groups have paid attention to this drift of current demand and have begun to focus their offerings of destinations as mature as the Balearics or Almeria towards a tourism with more feeling; slower, more ecological, more authentic and respectful of traditions and cultures in which their accommodations are located. A fairly recent example of this trend is found in the hotels in Majorca at Garden Hotels such as Cala Millor Garden Hotel. Here, the island that this holiday chain was born on, has signed several agreements to be able to offer a unique service of native gastronomy with a seal of guaranteed quality.

 

In addition to working with associations of farmers and local farmers, they also have agreements with social centers to assist the labor integration of people with disabilities in Mallorca and in their new menus provide a full range of dietary and gluten-free products, special for celiacs.

 

As explained by this Majorcan hotel group, the idea of ​​working in this direction that is more closely to the reality in which their hotels are located is aimed at making accommodation more of a social wheel; that society and its culture are what provides a differential and unique plus to the holiday experience of its customers.

 

Its gastronomy slow drinks from the most local, like the Majorcan lamb. In the restaurants of all the hotels in Majorca that the chain owns there is always a good dish of fresh lamb with a seal of indigenous quality that makes the buffet an attraction: guests no longer have to leave the hotel to enjoy the most authentic local cuisine.

 

The same happens with the vegetables used in the different culinary proposals that are offered both in the buffet and in the à la carte restaurants (no matter if they are Asian or Italian style, the product is always fresh, local and given priority to the season). A way of understanding the gastronomy linked to the natural system, with simple flavors that enhance each other without looking for additions.

 

A more global future

 

To compete with the big beach resorts of places like the Caribbean or Tunisia pass through here: to sell destinations offered by the hotels, integrate them in their environment in the most respectful way possible, being the hotels themselves in charge of defending, fostering and preserving that authenticity that makes it a place that is appealing to enjoy a vacation.

 

The accommodations take from the traditions and mix them, acquiring local customs and applying them through a differential service. Some even, thanks to this plus of authenticity, have managed to raise the rates of accommodation without seeing the level of occupation decrease. A sign that the commitment to a philosophy based on the roots of destiny is key to a viable, lasting and sustainable future. The glocal prevails.
