Fun fact: I LOVE brunch.
So when The Diplomat Beach Resort invited me and a few other bloggers to brunch at their newly opened restaurant, Point Royal, I jumped at the chance!
I was enamored the second that I stepped into the lobby. They recently renovated and the décor is simply stunning. The beachy yet sophisticated aesthetic made this place total home décor #goals.
While the ocean views, 2 gorgeous pools, and luxurious spa are all amazing— it’s the diverse dining options that really make this place shine.

This restaurant, by famous chef Geoffrey Zakarian, is a delicious buffet by morning and delectable seafood restaurant, with the properties only raw bar, by night.
I was lucky enough to sample my way through the amazing array of food on offer during breakfast/brunch. Trust me, this is not like any self-serve hotel buffet you’ve been to before.
Some of the highlights were the biscuits with fried chicken & gravy, fresh made-to-order omelets, iced donuts and a delicious avocado & tomato salad.
