Sushi & Sake With
Ocean Blue World

VIP partners, influencers and private guests of Ocean Blue World gathered last week over a Sushi & Sake Lunch hosted at the trendy Nicksan Palmilla. This chic and intimate afternoon as part of Ocean Blue’s exclusive events unlocked a magical experience with notable personalities, entertainment, and of course, extraordinary culinary creations.

In the secluded sanctuary of Nicksan Palmilla, where the essence of Japanese culinary artistry is seamlessly interwoven with the zest of Mexican heritage, guests of Ocean Blue were greeted with a “Tequila Tease” cocktail, an elixir that marked the commencement of the #OceanBlueExperience. Attendees interacted with special guest El Charro González who arrived in his signature Day of the Dead aesthetic while a graceful geisha walked amid the guests offering a perfect photo opportunity. Adding more beauty to the day, artist Rodrigo Azanza Zepeda orchestrated a live painting titled “Golden Symbiosis” of a blooming gold orchid and a pink-toned eclipse in a ceramic plate.

To the rich melodies of a classical string duo, guests were led to their tables where the narrative of taste was about to unfold. A trio of courses, the Sushi & Sake Lunch, beckoned. Each bite a fusion of cultures—be it the Sashimi Bluefin, Maki de Langosta, or Huachinango Sellado accompanied by Sake Bull Rider Junmai Daiginjo. The sweet finish? A lemon cake paired with Sake Sparkling Shirakabe.

The entertainment continued with an interactive origami-making experience and a luxury raffle with gifts from Gallery, TOP 10´S and Hayet Abdala. The lantern-designed #OceanBlueSwagBag featured Asian-inspired gifts for all to enjoy as well as the 34th edition of Ocean Blue Magazine featuring David Beckham #OnTheCover.

Celebrated alongside Nicksan’s 30th anniversary, this Sushi & Sake Lunch took guests on a unique culinary adventure swooning with unique style, creativity and bespoke excellence. Ocean Blue World would like to thank Nicksan Palmilla, Chef Ángel Carbajal, Carmen Carbajal, El Charro González, Rodrigo Azanza Zepeda, Gallery, TOP 10’S, Hayet Abdala, and the coordinated efforts of the Ocean Blue team led by Vanessa Fukunaga, Owner and CEO of Ocean Blue World and Engel & Völkers Snell Real Estate.

Ocean Blue World unveiled their own playful spin on the classic tea party experience with a whole lot of fashion, jewelry and design…and of course, all the trimmings of a dreamy teatime.

Whisk yourself away for an afternoon of trendy tea and go behind the scenes at yet another spectacular #OceanBlueExperience.

By invitation only, the women who wow in Los Cabos were invited to a five o´clock sitting of afternoon tea with white glove service from Viceroy´s finest. Dressed in elegant vintage attire with fabulous fascinators of all colors and kinds, guests were greeted by soft music and waiters in trimmed blazers pouring chilled mimosas and Bellinis.

As waiters served the selected teas including Coquelicot and Rooibos Vainille in gorgeous ceramic teapots, heavenly aromas of hibiscus, caramel, green tea and passion fruit filled the air. It wouldn’t be an authentic afternoon tea without all the traditional spreads catered and served by Casianos. Elegant serving trays brimmed with teatime treats of freshly baked pastries and dainty finger sandwiches. Then, care for something sweet? Miniature puddings of chocolate-mousse tarts, salted-caramel choux pastries, and exquisite OBW tiered cakes undeniably stole the show.
