Grab a Red Stripe, turn up the Reggae beats and imagine the white sand and ocean waves at your feet. Now take that Jamaican mindset and be inspired to come up with the winning name for Couples Swept Away’s newest restaurant. Submit the winning name and receive a four-night/five-day all-inclusive stay for two at Couples Resorts with round trip airfare. Feathers, Lemon Grass, The Palms and Sea Grape Café currently provide four different dining options at Couples Swept Away, and now the public has the chance to name the newest restaurant addition, a 240-seat dining facility, part of a $7 million expansion project.
The Expansion Project: A three-story “Great House” is under construction to be made up of gift shops, disco, piano lounge, conference rooms, internet café and game rooms. Additionally, 28 new suites are being added. Feathers, Couples Swept Away’s award-winning gourmet restaurant will relocate to the new Great House as well and will feature an optional wine bar. Plus, a three-tiered infinity pool with two Jacuzzis and a swim up pool bar will be built alongside the new building. A 24-hour beach grill completes the project, which is slated to open February 2006.
The Restaurant With No Name: Included in the “Great House” project is a 240-seat open-air dining room. The restaurant will feature a large open ‘show’ kitchen with a wood stone pizza oven and rotisserie as its central elements. The menu will feature island style tapas, a shared plate style of dining, perfect for couples to share. The a la carte options will offer world cuisine with a Caribbean flair. An adjacent bar area will have deck seating over a portion of the new pool and all restaurant seating will provide views of the show kitchen or the pool and sea beyond.
