Sticking to a kosher diet on the road can be challenging, but Prime Hospitality Group, a New York City-based glatt kosher restaurant and catering company, is trying to make it easier by partnering with luxury resorts around the country for Jewish holidays.
The travel program, called the Prime Experience, offers all-inclusive packages with kosher dining and alcohol, activities and accommodations.
For Sukkot in October, the company is taking over a portion of the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort for 11 days. Meals will include steaks, seafood and vegetarian entrees as well as ethnic cuisine, Japanese, Chinese and Mexican.
Events include a cocktail hour with kosher wines, a children's day camp, cooking classes and speakers.
The Prime Experience started with a Passover package at the St. Regis Monarch Beach in Laguna Beach, Calif., last spring and is expanding to Sukkot this year and Passover in 2015 at the St. Regis Aspen, in Colorado; the Four Seasons in Westlake Village, Calif.; and the St. Regis Monarch Beach.
The company founder Joey Allaham said that plans are in the works to offer the package on summer breaks as well and that his goal is to give more flexibility to those who follow a kosher diet. "The people who need to eat kosher shouldn't feel restricted when they travel, and I want to show that the food can be fun and delicious," he said in a phone interview.
The Orlando trip runs from Oct. 8 to 19 with prices starting at $1,850 a person.
