· 14 December 2018
Be pampered to the hilt with a multitude of dining, shopping and spa offers at Palais Renaissance this festive season.
The most important holiday of the year is fast approaching and it’s no surprise why December is usually the most stress-filled month for many people. There are precious gifts to pick out for loved ones, multiple dinner and drink catch up sessions with friends, not to mention the head-to-toe primping for the slew of festive parties ahead. Fret not if you get into a tizzy just thinking about it. Tick off your Christmas to-do list at Palais Renaissance, which houses a fine selection of restaurants, boutiques and spas to fulfil your festive shopping needs.
As an alternative to rich hearty feasts, gather your girlfriends and try Frunatic’s four-course Yuletide Health and Beauty menu ($45++). Curated by the restaurant’s team of nutritionists, dietitians and chefs, the thoughtful menu features a soothing Rosemary Lemon Tea to start, which is followed by a Portobello Mushroom Burger with vegetable walnut patties. You can also enjoy dessert without worrying about the calories. Their Chocolate Banana Brownie with Pecan Caramel is power packed with flavanoids for healthy heart function. Wash it down with their house-made, non-alcoholic Christmas champagne.
