Recently opened in Paris, at the MK2 Bibliothèque on 160 Avenue France in the 13th arrondissement, the first immersive restaurant in France: Under The Sea by Ephemera. The three young entrepreneurs of the Ephemera Restaurant Group, Jade Frommer, Annaïg Ferrand and chef Loris de Vaucelles, created a restaurant where your taste buds will be surprised, without breaking the bank and where you will immerse yourself and your company in the theme of the ocean. Video projections on large screens, light and sound effects and a spectacular décor: everything to create a unique atmosphere within the place. The chef is Loris de Vaucelles and he works with high quality products and has a lot of creativity, watch the video later in the article.

So if you’re driving to the South of France this summer, a visit to Paris and a plonge in the ocean to discover its ‘majestic fauna and luminescent flora’ whilst enjoying real French cuisine for a reasonable price, might be a fun idea!

Sheraton Hotels & Resorts, part of Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of 30 extraordinary brands recently unveiled the renovated Sheraton Amsterdam Airport Hotel and Conference Center. Over the past year the hotel has been through a major renovation to create a new environment that creates an intuitive and holistic experience with places for people to connect, be productive and feel part of a community. Sheraton Hotels & Resorts is currently undergoing a brand transformation at properties across the world, and Sheraton Amsterdam now showcases this new vision as one of the very first hotels in Europe.

On 16 March, we enjoyed a tour of the hotel – with fun details for meetings such as origami plane folding and binoculars in the suites for spotting planes. And we enjoyed tasting some delicacies of what is served from Commune Restaurant, The Gate Bar & Stripes Restaurant. To celebrate the transformation of the hotel, Sheraton Amsterdam Airport created a special opening offer to experience the renovated Sheraton guestroom, including access to the Sheraton Club and a welcome drink in Commune.

It’s finally time again to socialize with friends on the patio with a cocktail, spritzer or a mocktail. The demand for exciting drinks that don’t leave you hungover is growing and the #sobercommunity is on the rise. ORGANICS by Red Bull joins this demand: this spring, the alcohol-free and premium organic soda ORGANICS by Red Bull will be back in full force in the Dutch hospitality sector. In addition to the five existing flavors, three new flavors have been added, each with their own unique character: Purple Berry, Black Orange and Ginger Beer.

We recently tasted the three new flavors. Delicious, fresh and not too sweet. We love to picture ourselves with a cold glass in the sun on a terrace. The Ginger Beer flavor is nice and spicy and you can clearly taste the ginger. The ladies especially enjoyed the light sweetness of the Purple Berry.

In advance of the highly anticipated opening of Corona Island, a destination designed to help visitors disconnect from the everyday and reconnect with the natural world, Corona announced three global experts who will help shape the island’s immersive guest experience through food, design and lifestyle touchpoints. Corona Island’s design and programming will be led by an all-star roster that includes Jaime Gaztelu and Mauricio Galeano of James & Mau, Jairo Márquez, Chef Christopher Carpentier and Paulina Vega, Lifestyle and Culture Curator.

We’re a bit jealous here in Europe, only eleven countries (Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Paraguay, Peru and South Africa) are running local promotions that unlock a once-in-lifetime all-expenses paid trip to the Island. Additional opportunities for the public to access the Island will be announced in the coming months, let’s hope we will get the chance to win that trip as well!
