If you checked out my former post on the venue, The Oasis Resort seems to be one of few in Negril that offer 3 meals a day without a luxury price tag. The resort has definitely added some extra flair since my previous visit. Now, you could possibly have 1 of those 3 meals on the on-site organic farm which produces a number of their offered fruits and food ingredients. The farm is an avenue of theirs to becoming more self-sufficient, through use of solar panels for electricity and eating (and serving) what they grow. Cue round of applause, please? 👏🏾 Background music will lead you to your destination near the resort’s parking lot.
Follow the flower-bordered path from the back of the resort to the farm entrance with your group. You’ll be led to a set up of a wooden table and benches decorated with colourful covering and pillows, complemented by baskets of finger foods and coolers of iced beverages. The fluffy green grass and surrounding fruit tree variety provide a tranquil atmosphere to share stories while relaxing with your crew.
On my particular visit, I honestly didn’t know what to expect. Pulling back the plaid cloth in the food baskets revealed tuna and ham and cheese finger sandwiches, and chocolate cake squares adorned with decorative toothpicks. Fruit plates of sliced watermelon, papaya and pineapple were resting on ice to preserve an ideal temperature while drinks cooled in the igloos. The presentation seemed simple but yet you can tell that small details were definitely paid attention to. Simple things can have great impact; being in that environment had my group of 5 bonding more than we did for the entire stay.
Enjoy a secluded lunch on the lawns for $120 USD / ~$15,360 JMD for 2!
Just request a picnic reservation at the front desk or with the general manager, and let the resort do the rest!
Brunch on the Farm
On some occasions, guests will be hosted on the farm for brunch instead of the usual dining area by the poolside. Chefs will prepare a variety in authentic Jamaican style – on a drum stove using wood and coal fire. Guests line up for a selection of grilled and roasted meats and side orders, grab a drink of soda, beer, or water, then gather around square tables and benches to indulge. Friendly staff members are present to help minimize your movements by serving and disposing empty plates while you chit-chat with your group. The best way I can probably describe the atmosphere is ‘A Perfect Sunday Afternoon’.
Before this, I’ve probably only been to a picnic hosted by me lol. A backyard picnic, that’s not something you’ll find at every resort.
