W Retreat & Spa: Vieques Island opening in November will not only be the first W Retreat & Spa in the Caribbean, it will also be the site of world famous chef Alain Ducasse's first outpost in the region. Located eight miles off the Southeast coast of Puerto Rico on the peaceful and untouched island of Vieques, W Vieques will offer a mix of serenity and natural beauty on a 55-square-mile islet. Ducasse, one of the world's most decorated chefs and the only one to own and operate three signature restaurants each honored with three Michelin stars, has dubbed the Vieques enterprise "miX on the beach."
At the eatery (above) Ducasse will offer a sophisticated menu, exploring colorful Latino Caribbean flavors with an artful French twist and refreshing dishes that highlight only the finest ingredients from land and sea, expertly prepared and creatively presented. miX on the beach will include both indoor and outdoor dining with impressive ocean views to ensure an unforgettable epicurean experience. Ducasse's team will also manage the entire food and beverage program for the resort, which includes W Café, Living Room bar, WET bar and terraces, W Welcome Lounge at Vieques airport, in-room dining and all banquet/wedding events.
