Couples in search of a romantic escape over Valentine’s weekend, need look no further than Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel, where they can celebrate “A Suite Romance” in the hotel’s lavish, 1,300-square-foot Executive Deluxe Suite that has its own private terrace overlooking the bright lights of the Cotai Strip. This exclusive package is the perfect getaway for two, to pop open a bottle of bubbly, indulge in culinary experiences at the hotel’s signature restaurants and more. Or for something a little more intimate, the “Be Mine” package, features a stay in a Deluxe Cotai View Room with gorgeous views of the Strip as well as a slew of Valentine’s Day treats.
Couples who stay in the extravagant Executive Deluxe Suite can enjoy an expansive terrace while taking in breathtaking vistas of the entire Cotai Strip – the perfect place to pop the question or to simply enjoy being alone together. In the Deluxe Cotai View Room, couples can cozy up by the window and watch the twinkling lights of the Cotai Strip while sipping champagne. And after settling into these sumptuous spaces, they can head for a treatment at Shine Spa for Sheraton or a dip in one of the many heated pools on property to work up an appetite, before enjoying a romantic, candlelight dinner at Bene – Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel’s Italian trattoria.
Amore, Valentine’s Day Set Dinner at Bene
This romantic dinner begins with rosemary smoked salmon and honey cured salmon, an appetizer that brings out the fish’s natural flavors, and plays a delicate balance between sweet and savory. Guests will then be served a clear chicken broth with tallegio tortelli (Italian dumplings) and porcini mushroom to clear their palates before savoring a delicate tagliatelle pasta served with foie gras. This exquisite pasta dish is prepared al dente, and the foie gras is seared on both sides for a crunchy texture and to seal in the moisture.
For their mains, couples can choose from fresh black cod served with the fabled castelluccio lentil and tangy parma ham. For meat lovers, guests can dine on eye fillet from renowned beef producers, Rangers Valley. The hearty taste of the beef is perfectly complemented by the rich truffle port wine sauce, or offset by the smoked pumpkin puree and heirloom baby carrots.
And for dessert, couples can share a chocolate Tiramisu heart with cocoa nougatine, served with a side of Bene’s rich, home-made vanilla ice cream. They are also welcome to savor fresh strawberries soaked in amaretto, for a sweet ending to their dining experience at Bene.
Romantic Afternoon Tea at Palms
Couples can also catch up and spend some quality time together, while feasting on a traditional English afternoon tea with a twist, at Palms. First introduced by Anna Maria Russell, Duchess of Bedford, Sheraton Grand Macao Hotel’s version of this must-have meal offers classic items and Asian fare. Couples can pique their appetites with a piping-hot scone that is perfect with a dollop of Devonshire clotted cream and strawberry jam, before moving on to a contemporary favorite – a spiced milk chocolate and strawberry shooter. For a luxurious treat, the chocolate tartlet with raspberries, pistachios and gold leaf is superb. For a touch of savory, the afternoon tea also features smoked salmon dill cream cheese or cucumber prawn mayonnaise finger sandwiches, or the lobster and mango salsa crostini, a bite-sized treat made with fresh lobster and mango.
World of Love Buffets at Feast
For international fare, the World of Love buffets at Feast are a great way to experience a multitude of cultures and tastes all at once. Highlights include: cold poached seafood on ice – lobsters, clams, Alaskan queen crab legs; classic beef wellington served warm with a springy puff pastry and a side of Italian spiral sausage; steamed lobster claw or tandoor marinated baked whole salmon.
Ah, Paris! The City of Love
And in the evening, couples can stroll over to ‘Paris’ and climb the ‘Eiffel Tower’ to enjoy expansive vistas of Cotai and the Macao skyline – the perfect way to cap off a romantic weekend.
