Most Christmas Hampers are out of my price range, never mind one that comes in at just under £9,000 but for pure extravagance and indulgence – The Lowry Hotel’s new PEACE, JOY & THE LOWRY Hamper is the only choice this Christmas.
Costing £8,695 (but worth over £12,500), the new hamper includes two nights in the hotel’s Charles Forte Presidential Suite – the city’s largest penthouse, and the only suite where a president has actually slept in Manchester (normally priced at £4,000 a night).
The hamper also includes a 24-hour-a-day personal butler for the duration of your stay, a bespoke in-room dining experience from the award-winning River Restaurant, two 60-minute spa treatments and Chef’s Choice dinner for two with Champagne.
And if that wasn’t enough, the hamper also includes treats to indulge in including a bottle of Ace of Spades Champagne, a bottle of Remy Martin Louis XIII (worth nearly £3k), two bottles of Lowry Gin, Lowry Blend Tea from the Manor, flavoured macarons, chocolate truffles, two pairs of Lowry slippers, a Lowry bear, two jars of Lowry honey and an array of Aromatherapy Associates Ultimate Moments Ultimate Collection and Elemis spa gifts. All presented in a deliciously luxuriant presentation hamper.
The package also includes Christmas Day @ HOME – The Lowry Hotel’s 5-star cook at home Christmas lunch kit. So you can cook like Nigella and only stress about 20% of the cooking, (as there’s some assembly required) with 80% of the prep done for you and ready to go.
The menu includes a bottle of Ayala Champagne, and five sumptuous courses including a goat’s cheese, beetroot, fig & truffle starter, a fish course of potted Cornish crab, turkey with cranberry and sage stuffing, pigs in blankets, Lancashire Bomb cauliflower cheese, duck fat roasties and Christmas pud with iced redcurrants for dessert.
Adrian Ellis, General Manager at The Lowry Hotel said: “This is THE ultimate gift for those who want to go all out this festive season. Guests will truly be waited on hand and foot – expect a luxury chauffeur experience to and from the hotel, so you can arrive in style and kick off the celebrations.”
Alongside this truly magnificent hamper, The Lowry Hotel have also created a series of smaller (and perhaps more manageable) hampers, but still featuring the highest quality products you’d expect from the 5-star hotel.
Ranging from £30 – £185, there’s plenty to choose from this Christmas – and even though you probably can’t buy your mum the £12k one – you can still impress her with another one.
