With a complimentary upgrade to an Harbour View room, you can take in sweeping views of the Harbour from sunrise until sunset. Raise a toast to a well-deserved break with the two bottles of Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial Piccolo (200 ml) waiting for you in the room, together with sweet petit fours, before making your way to the pop-up French restaurant for a dinner featuring classic French fare such as beef tartare, lobster bisque and beef fillet mignon paired with French wines. Do not forget to book yourself some me-time and pamper with lavender-scented bath salts, a set of toiletries from Parisian luxury brand Balmain and French skincare by Lancôme.
