Flights of Fancy

May 8th, 2023

A tasting flight of wine or whisky is not unusual to spot on a menu, but what about a honey flight? Several hotels have gotten in on this trend of offering flights of things that don’t contain alcohol. Here are a few spots offering booze-free “flights” in case any catch your eye!

Tenuta di Murlo, Umbria, Italy – Honey Flight

Adults-only Nayara Springs, nestled in the rainforest below the Arenal Volcano, has a dedicated espresso bar: Mi Cafecito. The expert baristas can create Costa Rican coffee flights for guest, showcasing the different roasts (light, medium, dark), different treatments of the beans (washed, natural, honey), and different growing altitudes. The beans are all roasted onsite.
