O2 Beach Club & Spa, St Lawrence, Barbados 

With just one fine-dining à la carte restaurant, the O2 Beach Club and Spa might seem underwhelming compared with the other foodie spots on our list. But the menus on offer across all five eateries showcase gorgeous dishes and a mix of cuisines made with the best local ingredients. 

Oro is the real gourmet experience, located on the ninth floor and offering 360-degree views of the South Coast. Think modern European-meets-Caribbean fusion, served with a truly designer backdrop. Elsewhere, there are cocktails and tapas served in the Brisa spot by the pool, or you can dine at the Bluefin restaurant, with fresh seafood, salad and pizza served on the terrace. You can even order from your lounge chair for poolside service. Yes, please.

  Titanic Mardan Palace, Antalya Area, Turkey 

The Titanic Mardan Palace could make an appearance on any shortlist of the best hotel facilities, simply because it has so many. Water-wise, it has its own aqua park, a 10,000-square-metre main pool, and an aquarium with an imitation reef. It’s also got one of the biggest spas in the Antalya area, complete with a salt room, massages and beauty salon treatments. And – what we’re all here for – you’ve got six formal à la carte restaurants, plus snacks and small plates available from the 16 additional eateries dotted around the complex. The line-up includes not one, but two patisseries and an ice-cream bar. 

The Bosphorus buffet restaurant serves a fusion of east-meets-west cuisines, while the Yamas Greek restaurant serves fresh fish and seafood. The Aquamarine Fish Restaurant is based inside the aquarium – yep, really – so you can admire the hundreds of fish swimming past while you tuck into an entrée of your own. Silk Road offers authentic Indian cuisine with a stylish backdrop, while Yamas Greek serves fresh seafood on an open terrace.
