Nestled within the lush grounds of the Royal Palm Beachcomber Luxury, a thriving colony of bees has found sanctuary, thanks to the hotel group’s dedication to eco-conservation. These industrious insects work tirelessly to produce a delicate honey that graces the palates of the hotel’s privileged guests.

Drawing inspiration from this sweet partnership, Stephan Baptiste has fashioned a chocolate marvel that is not only a visual delight but also a true celebration of flavors. At the heart of this beehive-shaped chocolate confection is a rich, 72% Menakao dark chocolate from Madagascar, which tantalizes the taste buds with its bold cocoa notes and hints of red fruit. This exquisite chocolate base is elevated by a tangy aftertaste that leaves one longing for more.
