For those who have left their Christmas shopping to the very last minute, our Gift Experience Vouchers are a thoughtful and original present. From decadent spa treatments in an Irish Castle to wine tastings in South Africa or a traditional Afternoon Tea with all the trimmings in London, discover what sort of experiences these vouchers can buy for your loved ones this Christmas.
Red Carnation Hotels are known for their fantastic food and drink, and a voucher could equate to a gourmet experience. Enjoy a truly authentic Indian curry at The Oyster Box’s famed curry buffet in Durban, the Curry Room at The Old Government House Hotel in Guernsey, or the soon-to-open Curry Room at the Rubens at the Palace in London. Alternatively, treat a loved one to fabulous fine dining meal at the stunning Windows restaurant at Hotel d’Angleterre in Geneva, or a feast in the sumptuous surroundings of the George V Dining Room at Ashford Castle in Ireland. Alternatively, opt for a lighter but no less indulgent treat with a voucher for Afternoon Tea at The Milestone Hotel opposite Kensington Palace, The Egerton Hotel in Knightsbridge, or The Duke of Richmond in Guernsey.
Red Carnation Hotels takes pride in its expertly stocked wine cellars. Each of our hotels is home to a highly knowledgeable sommelier and an extensive wine list that combines Old World classics with must-try New World bottles and a few hidden treasures from lesser-known winemaking regions. Put your vouchers to good use at one of Summer Lodge’s Wine Dinners in Dorset; during these dinners, an expert introduction will explain more about a particular house or style of wine, followed by a four-course menu created to compliment the wines selected by Summer Lodge’s award-winning sommelier, Eric Zwiebel. Alternatively, practice your wine tasting at Bushmans Kloof, which is located in the heart of the Western Cape’s winemaking region, close to some of the best local wineries, including Bouchard Finlayson.
Give the gift of relaxation with a spa experience at one of Red Carnation’s first class spas. The Twelve Apostles Spa in Cape Town promises a restorative experience for the mind, body and soul and visitors can choose to have a treatment in one of the stunning mountain gazebos where you can indulge in rituals such as a B | Africa Harmonised treatment, which includes stress relieving massage, surrounded by ocean views. In Dorset, immerse yourself in the peaceful calm of the Summer Lodge Spa with a spa package that allows guests to soak in the swimming pool and Jacuzzi, pamper themselves with a skin reviving facial and snack on a morning pastry basket or Dorset Cream tea. Alternatively, play at being Lord or Lady of the manor at Ashford Castle’s luxurious spa, with its elaborate mosaic tiles, relaxation pool and essence-infused steam room.
Whether it’s a gourmet meal or decadent spa treatment, treat your loved ones to the best of the best with a Red Carnation Gift Experience Voucher.
