Timothy Palmer Joins Fairmont Royal Pavilion as Executive Chef

Barbados, Bridgetown. March 25, 2020

Fairmont Royal Pavilion, Barbados is pleased to announce Timothy Palmer has been appointed Executive Chef of Fairmont Royal Pavilion effective February 6th 2020. As the new Executive Chef, Timothy will oversee the culinary operations of Fairmont Royal Pavilion's three restaurants and in-room dining.

Tim as he is affectionately called, brings 20 years of progressive experience in the Food & Beverage industry predominantly with the Fairmont Brand where he started his career in hospitality with Fairmont Jasper Lodge in 2000.

Tim gained his Caribbean hospitality experience when he returned to the Fairmont Brand in 2007, this time with Fairmont Southampton Princess in Bermuda where he worked until 2010. Again, in order to further develop his career, Tim moved to Fairmont Royal York from 2010 for two years and then Executive Chef at Fairmont Winnipeg where under his stewardship, the flagship restaurant VG has won AAA 4-Diamond Award for 4 years consecutively from 2016 to 2019.

"I am really excited about my new journey in Barbados. I am eager about learning more about the bold flavours and local ingredients of Barbados and the Caribbean and infusing those flavours and local produce with fun innovative techniques such as molecular gastronomy. There is a lot of potential with the restaurants at Fairmont Royal Pavilion and with my Barbadian team, I want to make our three restaurants the hottest spots on the West Coast to dine" said Timothy Palmer, the new Executive Chef of Fairmont Royal Pavilion.

We welcome Tim to Barbados and the Fairmont Royal Pavilion team and we look forward to creating and achieving lifelong culinary experiences for all our guests.

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
