There’s always a sprinkle of magic in the air at The Peninsula Hong Kong, but never more so than on Valentine’s Day, when the legendary hotel plays host to a plethora of romantic rendezvous. As the backdrop to countless first dates, marriage proposals, weddings and anniversary celebrations over the past 87 years, The Peninsula occupies a special place in the heart of the city’s lovers and dreamers, and the hotel is once again showing its romantic side with a range of special programmes for Valentine’s Day.
Artisanal Chocolates Hand-Delivered by Pageboys
Nothing says romance quite like hand-made chocolates, and The Peninsula offers a variety of opportunities to add a touch of sweetness to Valentine’s Day celebration. Fresh from his third-place finish at the prestigious 2015 World Chocolate Masters competition in Paris, The Peninsula’s Maître Chocolatier Marijn Coertjens has once again created a selection of exquisitely wrought confectionaries to light up the most romantic day of the year.
Hand-crafted in the hotel’s famous Chocolate Room by Coertjens and his team are a collection of “haute couture” artisanal chocolates, each with its own unique look and flavor inspired by a variety of gemstones. Priced at HK$ 1,800 per box, these edible works of art will be hand-delivered to the sender’s beloved by a Peninsula pageboy, only on 13 or 14 February 2016.
Available on a first-come, first-served basis, these limited edition Valentine’s Day Artisanal Chocolates can be ordered by telephone on +852 2696 6694 or by e-mail at email@example.com from 14 January 2016 onwards.
Taking things up a notch is the “Romantic Rendezvous” Experience, which, in addition to the hand-made artisanal chocolates delivered by a Peninsula pageboy, includes a note asking the reader to “Look out for the green Rolls-Royce outside at 7:00 pm”.
A chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce will then whisk the recipient to The Peninsula for an enchanting five-course candlelit dinner at Felix or The Pool. The package, which is priced at HK$ 7,880, also includes a one-of-a-kind menu as a keepsake, which can be personalized in advance with a favourite photograph or romantic message.
For the ultimate in Valentine’s Day indulgence, however, look no further than the “Love Unlimited” package, priced at HK$ 16,880* per couple. In addition to all the elements of the Romantic Rendezvous Experience, Love Unlimited also includes one night’s stay in a Grand Deluxe Harbour View Room, room service breakfast, guaranteed late check-out until 2:00 pm and personalised bathrobes embossed with the guests’ initials.
Both the Romantic Rendezvous and Love Unlimited packages are available on 13 or 14 February 2016 only. To book, please call The Peninsula Global Customer Service Centre on: +852 2926 2888, or e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
