Dress code advice

Haven't been abroad for several years and this is our first 5 star trip; this sounds really trivial but want to avoid being declined access to the dining room of our 5 star hotel in Corfu this Summer. I like dressing for dinner but DH not so much - does he need long trousers in the evening?

You need to check with the hotel surely? Their website should tell you, or if a 5 star place there should definitely be a concierge, or reception staff who can advise?

Quite often 5* abroad isn’t The Ritz is it? I wouldn’t necessarily expect DH to be able to wear shorts though but it might have casual dining and not be 100 % formal. Email them?

As long as you're not rocking up for dinner in your bikini I'm sure you'll be fine.

Angsana, (5* resort) for example, says dress code for the restaurants. Nothing formal but smart casual usually is not shorts. Cotton/linen trousers would be fine I would think.

Plus if he takes trousers and doesn’t wear them, it’s no big deal is it? Better than feeling odd one out in the event trousers are required.

Ws were touring around Arizona and stayed at a ranch. Men were required to wear jackets to dinner. DH didn’t have one so they put one on him! In the middle of the desert we didn’t have a choice of restaurants!
