Top 7 Reasons travelers inquire about private chef services for yacht charters (or villa rentals). You might find some the answers a bit surprising!
Reason 1: Special Requirements
More people than ever before are being deeply into food and foodie culture as not only basic nourishment, but also as a source of conversation, entertainment, social status, and excitement, your run-of-the-mill restaurant just isn’t cutting it anymore. Private chefs in Cabo use many local ingredients, organic produce, and can easily create incredible “fusion” menus.
Hiring a private chef allows yacht guests to enjoy a fully custom-tailored menu, where ingredients that they may not enjoy, be allergic to, or don’t excite their taste buds, will never be used. Our captain and crew know that there’s no need to worry that one guest is “extremely allergic” to something once departing for a yacht charter.
Reason 2: Spending Time with Family and Friends
Let’s face it, we’ve all hosted a party where you end up spending the entire night running around serving people yourself! If in Cabo, let us do the drinks, preparing food, serving, cleaning up, and your energy is focused on having a great time with your family and friends.
Hiring our private chef services to prepare and serve your meal has become more desirable than ever before. Our VIP yachts services have upped the ante in the Cabo yacht charter industry.
Not only will your menu be prepared by one of our highly skilled executive chefs to wow your guests, family, or friends, but you will be able to relax, enjoy, and truly have the unique and wonderful experience of being a guest at your own party. We will do everything for a completely hand’s off, five-star meal during your yacht experience (or villa accommodation)!
Reason 3: Celebrations of “Something Special”
Special occasions are one of the most popular reasons that people ask us about our private chef services. On that special date during your Cabo vacation, an incredible number of details involved in the planning of a celebratory event will pile up. If overseeing everything yourself and not knowing the ins-and-outs of Cabo, the task becomes even more stressful than ever. When so much is riding on that one meal or that one special day, details can easily get missed. Our team will work with you to ensure that all of your details are handled for you.
For anniversaries, birthday parties, bachelor or bachelorette parties, wedding cruises, sunset dinners, or every type of celebration you could imagine, you want great food and amazing service throughout the evening. You and your guests will be able to celebrate your special occasion together, while your private chef prepares a fully custom-tailored menu.
Reason 4: An Exclusive Experience
Sometimes a special occasion, event, or even an intimate dinner party aboard a yacht really calls for privacy. This is virtually impossible to accommodate in a variety of standard settings.
A crowded hotel or restaurant is not what you want for your event, intimate lunch, or dinner party. Private dining on your luxury yacht or in your own rented villa cannot be matched in both quality or guest experience. When food is prepared by our top-quality private chef, using only the finest ingredients, your meal transforms into what we call, “An exclusive experience.”
Hiring a custom-tailored private chef service that is geared to fit your specific needs because it will make your activity that much more memorable.
Reason 5: Surprisingly Affordable!
If you appreciate great wine or wonderful handcrafted cocktails, a good bottle of wine in a tourist destination will cost you exponentially more in a hotel or restaurant. Did you know that the average markup on alcohol or a bottle of wine in a restaurant can range somewhere between 400 to 1200 percent? In most cases, your fine wine or cocktails will often cost more than your meal.
Hiring our private chef services for your yacht charter (or in one of our villa rentals) offers incredible benefits. You have the ability to choose from your own selection of wine, cocktails, appetizers, and meals at an affordable price. Our food and beverage team can design your entire menu around your Cabo dream vacation.
This offers you an overall amazing and memorable dining experience. At the same time, it can save you some serious money on the alcohol bill.
Reason 6: A Private Chef is “Kid-Friendly”
Every parent knows how hard it is to bring your little ones along for a meal at a posh hotel. Finding a babysitter or hotel with a children’s facility is, of course, an option. However, that adds another cost to an already pricey experience, and you’re constantly worrying because you are on vacation.
Parents with children can absolutely take advantage of hiring a private chef! Enjoy the company of your family and friends while knowing that your children are having a blast!
Our private chefs are able to help you create a perfect children’s menu to compliment the activity. Grown-ups’ menus will exceed expectations. Your children’s tummies will be filled and there will not be the complaining about being hungry, afterwards. They’ll love everything we prepare because you choose the menu for them!
Reason 7: Flexibility in Meeting Specific Needs

The food and beverages selections will meet each and every guests’ dietary needs, food allergies, and culinary styling requirements. The added flexibility in determining your own menu factors in food preferences, service style choices, food allergies, and cuisine type.
Hiring a private chef takes all of the pressure off of you! Allow everyone to fully relax and enjoy the yachting experience. In advance, you know each of your guests will completely enjoy every moment of your time together in Cabo!
