If you love all things sweet, here's a treat: The Magic of Maple, an exclusive culinary package available this summer in Jacksonville’s backyard at Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort, runs from Memorial Day until Labor Day.
In preparation for the launch, a select group of chefs from Omni’s culinary team traveled to Vermont and Montreal – two of the highest maple producing regions in North America – for a week-long education, tasting and immersion experience. During the trip, the team toured various sugar woods, sugar houses, production facilities and distilleries, and discussed the natural sweetener’s past, present and future.
Omni’s "Art of Water" poolside menu features an array of Maple-infused dishes— including decadent appetizers, entrees, desserts and hand crafted cocktails — developed by Omni’s accomplished culinary team. In addition to all of the epicurean delights, the promotion will offer a soothing and aromatic maple spa facial and a maple hotel package.
The cocktail portion of the menu is divided into five regions – Southeast, Northeast, Midwest, Western, and Texas – each featuring local and unique maple-infused cocktails. For example, travelers in the Southeast can enjoy a Maple Smash with Crown Royal rye, fresh lemon, dark and robust maple syrup, and fresh mint.
The Magic of Maple package includes:
- Luxurious oceanfront accommodations
- Welcome amenity on night of arrival: a maple leaf cutting board with charcuterie, maple mustard and flatbread, one (1) custom maple cocktail, maple popcorn and maple candy
- $50 cuisine and cocktail credit
Packages start at $444 per night and are only available to adults 21 and over. omnihotels.com, 1-800-The-Omni
