Every mother deserves to feel special on Mother’s Day, and The Peninsula Hong Kong, with its first-rate restaurants, indulgent spa, elegant shopping arcade and sumptuous suites, has every treat a mother could possibly wish for. And Hong Kong’s very own Grande Dame has made it even easier this year for doting sons and daughters to spoil their favourite lady on Mother’s Day, Sunday, 14 May, with a host of promotions and special packages designed to create memories that will last a lifetime.
Mother’s Day Dining
Be it a leisurely lunch, a nostalgic afternoon tea or a no-expense-spared dinner, The Peninsula offers the perfect setting for a delectable dining experience. Every mother dining at the following restaurants will receive a special gift as a memento of the day.
For a truly classic Mother’s Day dining experience, there is no better setting than Gaddi’s. Hong Kong’s original French fine dining restaurant, Gaddi’s has been delighting the city’s most refined palates for more than 60 years. In honour of Mother’s Day, Chef Xavier Boyer has created a special four-course lunch menu, priced at HK$ 828*, that showcases his unique take on classic French cuisine, accompanied as always by Gaddi’s peerless service. To make a reservation, call +852 2696 6763.
Chesa, meanwhile, offers the crème de la crème of Swiss cuisine in a rustic setting that uses knotted pine beams and wood panelling to recreate a cosy mountain chalet. A much-loved fixture at The Peninsula for almost 50 years, Chesa is celebrating Mother’s Day with a delightful three-course lunch menu priced at HK$ 478*. To reserve a table, call +852 2696 6769.
Next door at The Verandah, guests can enjoy the world on a platter with a bountiful buffet of continental cuisine for either lunch or dinner. Priced at HK$ 1,088* per adult and HK$ 578* per child, the buffet here features only the highest quality ingredients, expertly prepared. Reservations can be made by calling +852 2696 6766.
For a taste of Cantonese cuisine at its very best, look no further than Spring Moon. In an elegant setting that recalls a 1920s Shanghai Art Deco dining room, the chefs serve up classics of the Chinese kitchen, from exquisitely wrought dim sum to traditional meat and seafood dishes, all accompanied by a choice of more than 25 teas served by highly trained tea masters. Bookings can be made by calling +852 2696 6760.
One of Hong Kong’s most beloved traditions awaits in The Lobby, where afternoon tea is perhaps the quintessential Mother’s Day experience. An ever-popular ritual passed down through the generations, Afternoon Tea is served from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm daily. The Lobby will also be offering a special Weekend Brunch, which is priced at HK$ 485* per person. Bookings can be made by calling +852 2696 6772 (except for Afternoon Tea at The Lobby).
And at Felix, The Peninsula’s 28th-floor restaurant and bar designed by iconic French designer Philippe Starck, modern European cuisine is the order of the day. Created by Chef Yoshiharu Kaji using only the freshest seasonal ingredients, each dish at Felix is an exercise in culinary flair and spectacular presentation. For this special occasion, Felix will be offering a free-flow of Laurent-Perrier Champagne at a special price of HK$ 400* to complement the Felix Experience set dinner menu or Chef Kaji’s tasting menu.
The setting, meanwhile, is an avant-garde tour de force, replete with whimsical touches and dramatic design features, not to mention unrivalled views of the Hong Kong skyline. To make a reservation, call +852 2696 6778.
