Deliciously Natural and Locally Grown
The Golden Dolphin Estate isn’t just a luxurious home set atop a hill overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. It’s also a working farm with acres of exotic fruit trees situated across the property. All of the produce is grown organically, and the staff uses the range of exotic flavors in the meals prepared in the kitchen each day.
Every morning, the chef creates fresh juices to serve at breakfast or mix up in a rum punch. Guests can choose to start their day with a glass of freshly squeezed star fruit, orange, pineapple or guanabana juice. You’ll never get a fresher glass of a juice in your life.
If you’d like, you can even take a walk and pick some fruit yourself. There are 100 acres of lush grounds to explore and a mix of fruit trees and vegetable gardens to find yourself the perfect snack. Banana trees are probably the most abundant of all of the fruit on the farm. However, the staff has recently planted more guanabana trees. Also known as soursop, guanabana is prickly in appearance, but the taste is pure heaven. The fruit has a white creamy texture and tastes somewhat like a combination of strawberry and coconut, with a bit of citris. It’s delicious in a smoothie. The guanabana has also gained much notoriety for its health properties. The fruit has high levels of vitamin C and B, and has been used to treat cancer and Parkinson’s disease.
Some of the other fresh produce grown on the property includes avocado, chayote squash, cacao, coconut, watermelon, sugar cane, papaya and passion fruit. The on-site chef is a master at using the locally grown fruits and veggies in every meal. The farm also grows fresh herbs to spice up every course.
