The Grenada Chocolate Festival is returning from May 13-22 and, to coincide with the event, Mount Cinnamon Resort and Beach Club is offering a Chocolate Festival package which includes chocolate cooking lessons and chocolate facials amongst other treats.

Visitors to the festival can discover the roots of the world’s favourite sweet treat, meet local farmers, tour cocoa farms, pick cocoa pods and prepare them for processing using traditional methods, with plenty of opportunities to sample the local produce including locally-brewed chocolate beer and rums, chocolate cocktails, local cocoa tea and chocolate-inspired meals.

Visitors can also learn the tricks of the trade with local Grenadian artisans and try their hand at making their own chocolates, learning how to temper, mould and make truffles.

The package costs from £2,155 per person and includes seven nights in a one-bedroom sea-facing suite on a bed-and-breakfast basis, flights with Virgin Atlantic from Gatwick, private transfers in Grenada, chocolate treats in the room on arrival, a 30-minute chocolate facial for two, a chocolate dessert cooking demonstration and full access to the resort’s beach club, watersports, tennis and fitness facilities, based on two adults sharing.

Visit, and for more information.
