Another Valentine’s day, another mega package from everyone’s favourite hotel – Villa Rosa Kempinski.
In a press statement yesterday, the hotel announced what it’s calling ’50 Shades of Valentine’.
The Sh5.4 million package will involve taking a couple through a 50 hour intimate and romantic journey built around an ultimate luxury experience.
“The journey begins on Saturday 13th February when the hotel will pick the couple from their resident with a convoy of limousines, accompanied by a butler, a lady-in-red and security for close protection. The red carpet walk way, free flow of vintage champagne and a 2 nights stay at the presidential suite sets the pace for the couple.” reads the statement.
On 14th, the day will start with breakfast by the terrace of their Presidential Suite, and thereafter they’ll hop into a chopper for a sky excursion of Nairobi city before being flown to Masai Mara for a sky safari.
At around 1pm the same day, the couple is expected to arrive at the world famous Olare Mara Kempinski at the Mara.
“Two Thai masseuses will be flown in from Villa Rosa Kempinski to take them through a romantic spa session with a Maesa lanciolata, honey and chocolate massage on the sundeck of Olare Mara Kempinski’s Honeymoon Tent just by the plunge pool overlooking the vast savannah dotted with wildlife.”
“The couple will be given some time to relax and have a bubble bath before a game drive en route to an exclusive sundowner cocktail set up for them in the middle of the park. After this remarkable experience the couple takes their chopper back to the city to culminate the intimate experience, plus intimate sundowner cocktail.” continues the statement.
The hotel’s award winning chef, Ciaran Gantly has apparently come up with a brand new menu for this experience, and it will never be replicated in the hotel, ever.
The 6 course menu has taken the chef 6 weeks to craft and source ingredients from all over the world.
“The culinary odyssey awaiting the two special guests includes asparagus velouté with truffle mascarpone and parmesan crisp. There will also be grilled fillet of turbot with cucumber ribbons, oyster butter sauce and honeyed duck breast with dried cherries which will be washed down with a bottle of Penfolds Grange, one of the finest wines in the world.” the statement continues. At this point they lost me.
The couple will enjoy this dining experience at Kempinski rooftop overlooking Nairobi skyline. At their beck and call will be the executive chef, 2 waitresses and their butler.
The cherry on top of the cake will be handpicked exclusive custom-made set of diamond jewellery for the lady and white diamond cuff links for the gentleman sourced from Italy. These plus other custom made gifts for the couple are valued at Sh1.4 million.
The whole experience will set you back Sh5.4 million only.
This is a Sh3 million increment from last year’s ultimate package dubbed ‘A Night of Diamonds’ which went for Sh2.34 million. The hotel confirmed last year that they had multiple inquries, pointing to high demand.
Former KTN reporter Cynthia Nyamai eventually made the reservation and after some rumours on social media, she confirmed.
So the cats out of the bag!!!! Perfect Valentines day gift for my man, @VillaRosaKempin Presidential Suite. #Anightofdiamonds I took up this offer for bae because men go through so much pressure in life, so this year I decided to treat my man and let him know he can sit back cause I got this baby!!!Though I will have to postpone the celebrations because I’m on the campaign trail in Nigeria, but I thank God for the gift of love. And a man who has shown me the true meaning of love just like in the Bible ICor 13:4-8. I thank God for you and I celebrate you everyday!
We’ll keep tabs on who might take up the offer this year.
