CASTRIES, St Lucia, Monday June 27, 2016 – St. Lucia’s renowned luxury resorts Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain are paying homage to the mango throughout the months of June and July.
To celebrate the tropical fruit, guests will get the opportunity to partake in a variety of mango-themed activities, events and services, featuring educational, culinary and wellness amenities.
“With the abundance of mangoes available during this time in St. Lucia, we decided to declare June and July ‘Mango Months’ at Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain,” said Karolin Troubetzkoy, Executive Director of the iconic resorts. “We have many [mango] trees growing at our organic Emerald Farm, and wanted to celebrate the various types of mangoes found here on the island, while educating our guests and enhancing their experience with mango-inspired offerings.”
Throughout June and July , guests can participate in weekly mango tasting classes, learn how to make mango chutney and jam, concoct the perfect mango cocktails, and indulge in a variety of mango-infused body scrubs, wraps and massages available at the spa. Guests can also visit the Emerald Farm to take a tour of the mango orchard, as well as see the other farm-to-table produce grown for resort guests.
Spearheaded by consulting Chef Allen Susser, a ‘Mango Madness’ festival will be held from June 24-28, 2016.
Chef Susser, the National Mango Board spokesman and author of the Great Mango Book, will amplify the experience with five days of mango-themed activations and events.
These include a mango cocktail party, a mango mixology class, a mango tour of Nick Troubetzkoy’s Emerald Gardens with Chef Susser, and the ‘Night of 1,000 Mangoes’ dinner at the Treehouse Restaurant, one of the highlights of ‘Mango Madness’.
