The popularity started in Bali, Indonesia, followed by Thailand, Fiji, and Maldives. This has become more popular during the COVID-19 crisis as guests are avoiding public dining rooms as a safety action. “Across the course of the past year, in-suite dining has become extremely popular, especially for those seeking solace in the safety and comfort of their suite,” said Jann Hess, general manager at Amanjiwo in Bali. Timo Kuenzli, general manager of Koh Samui’s Cape Fahn Hotel, added that almost all of their guests over the previous year have ordered a floating breakfast.
