Flowers are nice, but travel is better. Which is why we love these creative V Day offerings from QT Hotels & Resorts. It’s not too late to book the Clock Strikes Love sleepover which includes a 12pm check-in (we love), bottle of bubbles on ice, restaurant meal for two, and 12pm check out.
Each location is offering their own romantic travel treats as part of the package — we’re talking Love Potion cocktails, chocolate-dipped strawberries, love poems, ‘sensory’ desserts, and room service breakfasts. And all in-hotel music will be ‘hijacked’ with 24 hours of non-stop love dedications with roaming QT Cupids sharing random acts of love. Smooch!
Of course, it wouldn’t be Valentine’s without a decadent tasting menu complete with Champers on arrival. The QT “kitchen love doctors” have created a Feelings Are On The Menu package, with individual destinations also offering their own romantic dining options.
And the perfect memento? The Captured in Love at QT package, designed “for guests to recreate their designer hotel’s most iconic, loved-up photos”. Just choose your favourite scenario (think rose petal showers, bathtub Champagne, and bathrobe hijinks) and a pro local photographer will work their magic. Snap it up at QT Bondi, Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra & Perth.
We’re also putting harbourside beauty QT Wellington on our see-soon list with the French-inspired Hippopotamus Restaurant and Cocktail Bar set to reopen on February 11. Their limited-edition Hippo’s Choc and Awe High Tea (weekends only) will feature five sweets plus choc-themed savouries such as Black Cocoa Crusted Wild Venison and Chocolate Stout Braised Beef Cheek Pie! And for the big day? A one-off, six-course degustation menu featuring a discovery of New Zealand cuisine and Mumm Champagne on arrival.
