Confused and jittery about what to gift on the approaching Valentine’s Day? We give you a luxurious selection to pick from.
As most will agree with us, there is nothing more luxurious and special than love. And we don’t need to remind anyone that the celebration day is approaching! Although quite a few would be dreading it too, we try to make the hassle easier for them by suggesting some wonderful gift and indulgence options, ranging from watches to spas to dinners!
If you have already showered her with numerous diamonds, then take it to a different level, and gift a diamond spa. The Imperial Salon at The Imperial New Delhi hotel offers Natura Bisse’s 90 minute Diamond DNA facial which promises lasting results and a happy Valentine! Setting you back by INR 8100 (plus taxes) only, the salon has thrown in a complimentary mini manicure or pedicure as well in the package.
Or why not simply indulge in a relaxing rendezvous together at Ananda in the Himalayas? Book a three or five night Couple Connect package and experience spa therapies in your very own couple's spa suite, and one special candlelight dinner with a bottle of house wine and customized menu. The luxurious spas you’ll be treated to include a romantic Himalayan Honey and Rose Facial and Aroma Cocoon. So hold hands across the bed as you drift into a calming sleep…
Jewels can speak!
A good, intelligent watch makes everyone’s heart swoon. Gift this heady feeling to your partner with well-crafted and subtle Lange 1 Daymatic watch. Manufactured by A. Lange & Sohne, the watch has a characteristic dial with a retrograde day-of-week indication that forms the perfect counterpoint to the outsize date display. The case has a diameter of 39.5 mm and is offered in yellow gold, pink gold and platinum.
Women can never tire of jewels. Gift her one and her smile will lighten more than those zillion diamonds and stones! Zoya’s Banaras collection stole our heart, as we are sure, will appeal to your lady love as well! These striking statement pieces use 22 karat yellow gold, polkis and diamonds, made immortal with techniques such as partaj, chitai and intricate banarasi meenakari and the use of exquisite stones such as malachite, turquoise and pink opals. See the spiritual bliss spreading on her face…
A Moroccan adventure
Feeling a tad bit exotic? Whisk off your love to Marrakech where the stunning resort, Amanjena, has planned dinner by candlelight in a Moroccan olive grove for Valentine’s Day. Located on the outskirts of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Marrakech in Morocco, Amanjena presents beautiful views of the High Atlas Mountains. Dine beneath the retractable skylight in the elegant onyx-columned Le Restaurant as Moroccan musicians set the mood. Or enjoy a private dinner set in a candle-lit olive grove within Amanjena’s caidal tent, beguiled by the romance of the Moroccan night. For accommodation, a maison at Amanjena starts at Euro 1,900 (approximately INR 1,35,400)
Love on the table
Nothing beats the old-fashioned way of expressing your love and spending time together – a private dinner. Overdo on the pink factor and visit Fairmont Jaipur where an exquisite five course meal complemented with a welcome glass of wine or champagne awaits you, enhanced with captivating views of the Aravalli hills. Savour signature champagne cocktails and dance the night away starting at INR 5000 per couple.
The opulent surroundings of Le Cirque at The Leela Palace New Delhi will instantly make a couple feel special! So make your way to this French-Italian restaurant where a romantic ambience, sheer elegance with a live kitchen, and breathtaking views of the city will make this an unforgettable experience. Be welcomed with a glass of Champagne as the Chef orchestrates a finely crafted set menu, which is priced at 6,500 + taxes per person.
The Zodiac Grill at Taj Mahal Palace Mumbai takes love and grandness to a higher level. With designer tableware, lilting tunes of a pianist, the magical ambience cast by a star-spangled dome and glowing candlelit tables, pamper your partner through an 11 course menu and a truly romantic evening for INR 15,000 per person.
JW Marriott in Mumbai also has many options to fall back on. The one we got attracted to most is the exclusive five course aphrodisiac French meal at Thai Pagoda where a moon-lit sky, the pool and a bottle of champagne will ensure privacy and delight for INR 35,000 + taxes.
Clink the flutes
Talking about champagne, nothing spells romance better than it! Certainly not better than a seductive and customizable Moët Rosé Impérial! You can personalize your bottle of love with your own message and spinning some memorable moments to cherish forever. The premium ‘Love Case’ includes a pen and an elegant booklet with an array of stickers to personalize and decorate the bottle, along with the Moët Rosé Impérial bottle of course. And instead of heading out, why not create your own dinner date with a beautifully paired menu, as guided by Moët Rosé Impérial’s dedicated iPhone and iPad application?
