Ritz-Carlton introduces water dining

The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain is offering a new dining experience this summer. Splash Dining introduces a new in-the-pool dinner setting with the legs of diners, servers, chairs and tables refreshingly immersed for the cooling culinary occasion. 

Whetting the appetites of travelers for unique outdoor experiences, Splash Dining expands upon the water recreation offering of The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain, which features multiple swimming pools, a 235-foot-long water slide, weekend Cosmic Slide parties, and a spa serenity pool complete with full-service cabanas and a mid-pool tanning island.

Splash Diners at The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain are seated at tables placed into the waters of the Turquesa Pool. They check their shoes upon arrival and are invited to wear shorts or knee-length pants for the special occasion, which begins as they wade to their reserved seats partially submerged in the pool. A customized meal prepared by the chefs of The Ritz-Carlton is then served by a wading server team, with dessert personally delivered by a chef wearing the aquatic version of chef’s whites.

A once-in-a-lifetime resort experience, Splash Dining offers a pre-reservable three-course menu, including champagne toast, and is priced at $300 per couple.

For reservations, contact The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain at 572-3000.
