A WAVE of colors graced Plantation Bay Resort & Spa as its crew of talented employees entertained the guests with their breathtaking rendition of the pasadoble, the flamenco and other classical Spanish dances in the Viva España program of their open dinner buffet.
Held at the resort’s Orion Beach, Viva España is only one of the six themed dinner buffets staged every night. Other themes are Filipino Fiesta, Rockin’ USA, Sahara Night, Brazilian Fever and Hawaiian Luau.
The talents in each program are the resort’s very own employees; and they are famously known simply as the Plantation Bay Dancers.
By day, you might see some of them serving your coffee, cleaning your room, or helping you find your way around the spacious resort—then by night, be enthralled as they captivate you with their energetic moves!
This nightly tradition began in 2008, with only Filipino Fiesta as the theme. As years passed, it evolved into a highly-anticipated extravaganza that showcases not only Filipino culture, but that of other countries as well.
Rockin’ USA is a musicale of American pop culture; Hawaiian Luau is where one can see the classic hula as well as fire dancing; Sahara Night is reminiscent of old Arabian nights with belly dancers and gypsies; and Brazilian Fever is a mardi gras-inspired piece.
The upbeat feel of the evening is then perfectly complemented with a matching themed food menu. For instance, shawarma and kebabs are what fill the tables during Sahara Night, while choices of Paella Valenciana, Callos Andaluz, Lengua, Brazo de Mercedez and many more are up for grabs on Viva España.
The schedule for Plantation Bay’s open dinner buffets are as follows: Rockin’ USA on Monday, Hawaiian Luau on Tuesday, Filipino Fiesta on Wednesday, Viva España on Thursday, Sahara Nights on Friday, and Brazilian Fever on Saturday.
