Travel Sandals Resorts Now Have a 'Pizza Butler' to Make Your Vacation Memorable and Delicious
Mexico's First Nickelodeon Resort Is Now Open — and It Comes With a Spongebob-style Pineapple Suite
Are you ready? AYE AYE Cap'n.In early summer, Karisma Hotels & Resorts announced the opening of Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Riviera Maya. Like the other Nickelodeon properties, this one is expected to deliver on the fun.
Nothing says "fabulous beach vacation" quite like "pizza butler."
Guests in top-level suites at Sandals Resorts locations can book their own five-star butler service for their stays. The butler is equipped to bring dreams to life —to private sandy shores (the perfect way to celebrate ).
Even though specialty pizzas may not be the first thing to pop into mind when you think of Sandals, the resort has made a reputation for Dino's Pizzeria. The Italian staple can be found at Sandals locations throughout Jamaica, St. Lucia, Barbados,, Grenada, Antigua and the upcoming Curacao resort (opening April 2022).
How I Went From Prison Cook to Pizza Chef at One of Philly’s Best New Restaurants
At Down North Pizza in Philadelphia, all the employees are formerly incarcerated, including executive chef Michael Carter. This is his story.Cooking was something I was passionate about because I was passionate about eating. It’s a family thing. On my mother’s side we had these big family reunions. We’d go to New Haven, Baltimore, Philly, or Norfolk, Virginia—that’s where my relatives migrated to from the South. We’d have these yearly gatherings, and whenever it was in Philly, I was eager to be involved. We’d figure out who would cook what, who was getting the permit for where we’d cook outdoors. Cooking was in me.
Dino's whips up personal wood-fired pizzas like Hawaiian, meat lovers, and classic cheese. And if you, your butler will bring you a pie anywhere on the resort. (Or if you're in the mood for something else, Sandals offers up to 16 unique restaurants at each resort, with cuisine from around the world.)
Upon check-in, guests in top-level suites will meet their butler. Right away, the butler will give them their cell phone number, which guests can use for requests throughout their stay. When they get a craving for something — say a Hawaiian pizza and cocktails on the beach — guests can text or call their butler who will turn their pizza-inspired dreams into a reality.
Every butler has been trained and certified by the Guild of Professional English Butlers, so they know their stuff. Butlers can also take care of requests like breakfast in bed, unpacking luggage, booking spa appointments, setting up a romantic dinner in your room, blocking off a section of personal beach, and much more.
Butler service is available at 16 different Sandals locations throughout the Caribbean. For more information about how to book butler-level accommodations,.
