The Balmoral, a Rocco Forte Hotel, has collaborated with Mark Beaumont, record-breaking adventurer and endurance cyclist, to create an innovative and delicious Rocco Forte Nourish menu for its guests.

Rocco Forte Nourish, one element of Rocco Forte Hotels’ newly launched all-encompassing wellness offering, inspires healthy routines and encourages guests to keep wellbeing front of mind while travelling.

Mark Beaumont has worked with The Balmoral to create a nutritious menu to ensure that guests can enjoy dishes which are suitable for nourishing and fuelling the body. An ultra endurance athlete, Mark was born in Perthshire, Scotland and amongst many feats has cycled around the world and rowed the Arctic.


In 2015 he completed his Africa Solo expedition, setting a new world record after cycling from Cairo to Cape Town in only 41 days 10 hours. Mark considers nutrition as one of the most important elements of his training.

Commenting on the new collaboration with Rocco Forte Nourish, Mark said:

“It’s a pleasure to be working with The Balmoral on this new healthy menu offering. Nutrition is a core part of wellbeing and something I take extremely seriously when training for ultra endurance challenges. When you’re travelling, it’s not always easy to find delicious nourishing dishes and this collaboration will ensure that guests at The Balmoral will be able to access this during their stay.”


Mark Beaumont for Rocco Forte Nourish items will be available on the breakfast menu at Hadrian’s, the In Room Dining menu and The Balmoral Spa menu.
