As more and more travelers are committed to maintaing their healthy lifestyles on the road, many hotels have been introducing wellness-inspired menus for meetings and conferences. But that doesn’t mean travelers are forgoing sweets altogether. A number of luxury hotels across the country offer tempting “sugar break” meeting options to give meeting attendees a boost. Here are just a few:
The Omni Grove Park Inn in Asheville, N.C., offers an assortment of sugar breaks to revive guests and satisfy their sweet tooth. “S’moreffic” breaks feature a fire pit, homemade graham crackers, marshmallows, local chocolates, and an array of chocolates. Other options include a gourmet doughnut bar and Southern ice cream social with all fixin’s.
The Seagate Hotel & Spa in Delray Beach, Fla., offers its meeting attendees a Sweet Indulgence meeting break menu package that includes cookies, Rice Krispy treats, chocolate, milk, coffee, and teas.
At the Montage Deer Valley in Park City, Utah, Executive Pastry Chef Raymond Lammers has developed a gourmet doughnut bar. Prepared fresh on-property, the doughnut bar offers a variety of flavors, including maple bacon, lemon-blueberry, whiskey, and mint chocolate chip.
