Let’s be honest, love shouldn’t just be celebrated one day a year, on that day of love we know as Valentine’s Day; love should be celebrated every dazzling day! But perhaps 365 days-worth of romantic dinners and getaways would dull down the beauty and excitement that comes with such romantic expressions of the heart. That’s why we reckon 28 days is just about right, and if you’re a really busy VIP, then one grandiose night will just have to suffice.
We guarantee if you take your significant other to any one of these culinary destinations or experiences, he or she will be over the moon, and under your spell. From high teas and Bangkok’s version of heaven – high in the sky – to cruises on yachts down the River of Kings, celebrations of love in Bangkok never looked so spectacular. Read on to find out what’s in store for February and duly note that we’ve saved the best for last.
High Tea at Hanuman
The beloved Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok is presenting an impressive calendar of romantic culinary events, designed to appeal to couples of all ages and nationalities throughout the month of love. One in particular that has caught our eye – the Sweet Romance Afternoon Tea set offered at the Hanuman Bar, especially created to nurture the love of couples celebrating Valentine’s Day.
The tea set includes: rosewater and mango Battenberg cake; glazed passionfruit éclairs, velvet pear Williams and praline bar, and macaron crème brulée. Sounds divine! Savoury delights include manchego and quince paste red bread sandwich, and salmon and asparagus jalousie. Guests may choose their favourite coffee and tea blends from the extensive Ronnefeldt selection and this unique Sweet Romance Afternoon Tea experience may also be enhanced with Chandon Brut sparkling wine or Louis Roederer Champagne (at extra cost).
This enchanting afternoon tea – available only at Hanuman Bar, Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok – is served daily from 2pm-5pm until February 28 and is priced at THB 750++ per person or THB 1,500++ per couple. We think this should be enjoyed on top of any other celebration you’ll be having on V-Day because hey, isn’t the love of your life worth it?
