Renew and Reconnect Lunch at Belmond El Encanto

January 12, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm

- $62 – $72

Renew and Reconnect Lunch at Belmond El Encanto w/ Optional Pre-Lunch Meditation and Mindfulness Session.

Ah, the new year…A time to renew and recharge, set goals, and return to a daily routine after the busy holiday season. In celebration of the New Year, join members at the scenic Belmond El Encanto for a Renew and Reconnect Luncheon after the holiday season.

On the private terrace and in the Channel Islands room, reconnect with friends and members, and enjoy a creative, clean and delicious buffet lunch that focuses on lean meats, vegetables, and seafood. Refresh your senses with the gorgeous views that are iconic to Belmond El Encanto’s location. ESB is working closely with Chef Johann Denizot to create a unique luncheon spread for our members. Water, lemonade and Ice Tea will be provided at the event. Alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase. Menu to come!

In addition, there is an optional 20-minute, seated, self-focused, guided meditation before the event, led by Belmond El Encanto’s Chris Matesic, MATP (Master of Transpersonal Psychology, Somatic wellness).  Guests will take with them actionable steps that can implemented into daily life for better focus and brain function, a deeper sense of calm, heightened clarity, and the ability to stay in a rhythm of effortless flow and peace. Wearing nice clothing? No worries! This is mental exercise, with little physical movement. 

Chef Johan Denizot is passionate about sourcing ingredients from the local bounty, to bring out the purest tastes and textures in his food. French born, raised and trained, Denizot garnered nearly a decade of culinary experience before beginning his successful career in the United States, where he launched the pastry and bakery program at Annabelle’s Bar & Bistro in San Francisco. In Santa Barbara he worked as the Chef de Cuisine at Miro at Bacara Resort & Spa, where he was instrumental in the restaurant earning its Forbes Four-Star rating.
