While eating might not be at the top of everyone’s agenda at an adult playground, you’ve gotta do it sometime. The new Temptation eschews the traditional buffet in favor of a number of specialty restaurants that include Mexican, Italian and a chop-house style grill. The most notable is She, a bit of a throwback to the aphrodisiac-inspired eateries of the early 2000s. The multi-course menu is designed for couples to enjoy together (we call them sharing plates) and features foods meant to evoke all sorts of sensuality. Think duck wrapped in cinnamon and honey, orange foie gras, and vanilla and cognac-scented blackberries.
The nighttime shenanigans go down at BASH, the resort’s nightclub. Yes, there are nightly shows and resident DJs, but after a day of semi-naked tanning and dining on aphrodisiacs, guests are more in thrall of one other than of actual entertainers. Next month Temptation opens its more-relaxed rooftop option, Sky 3.5, which will offer craft cocktails and a panoramic view of the Caribbean. Gone are the tropical, Jimmy Buffett vibes of the old Temptation. But the modern revamp is an intriguing option for anyone looking to explore The Lifestyle.
