Synopsis

Set on a remote island off the coast, Hotel Splendide follows the Blanche family's attempts to maintain a crumbling, dilapidated hotel and health spa following the death of the family matriarch. Under his mother's tutelage, Ronald Blanche has been instructed in the art of a healthy Regime, based on boiling everything within an inch of its life.





His sister Cora runs a treatment room where services consist solely of mud baths and enemas, and Dezmond Blanche, determined to keep the spirit of his mother alive, is leading the hotel into ruinous straits. Into this bizarre universe bursts Kath, Ronald's erstwhile sous-chef and lover, banished from the island by his mother. Behind the peeling façade a gastronomical competition ensues, and as tensions and emotions mount, the hotel takes on a life of its own . . .
