Food

Our catering and food service

We strive to create an experience that is responsive to our guests’ needs by serving a wide array of Glatt kosher delicious foods prepared by top chefs.

A Different Pesach Program provides a gala Kiddush each day on Yom Tov and Shabbos. All Yom Tov meals and Seder items will be delivered directly to your villa, wrapped and ready to be warmed in your own kosher for pesach oven. You will be provided with paper goods for all of your meals. Shabbos lunch is a buffet style communal meal. We also have a kid’s buffet before candle lighting each night of yom tov so that the kids don’t have to stay up late for dinner to be served.

Daily breakfast, as well as Lunch-to-go on Chol Hamoed, are available each day at our pick up stations. For those staying on the premises on Chol Hamoed, a luncheon buffet is available. Each night of Chol Hamoed there is a communal BBQ for our guests to enjoy.

Each meal has multiple entrees, appetizers, and side dishes for our guests to choose from. While we don’t have a specific menu for vegetarians, vegans, or other specific dietary needs, each meal contains options which they can enjoy. We recommend anyone with specific dietary needs speak to our on site chefs to determine which choices they can have.

We will also supply additional snacks, drinks, and other basic food items that will be delivered to your villa or are available for pickup.

Our program food is glatt kosher, cholov yisroel, non-kitnyot, and non-gebrochts (except for a couple of items which are clearly marked gebrochts).
