Valentine’s and Chinese New Year celebrations in Discovery Bay

Posted in : Around DB Articles on by : Around DB , , , , Comments: 0


February is set to be a busy and exciting month in Discovery Bay, with back-to-back celebrations for Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year (CNY).

The stunning decorations at D’Deck include an exquisite pavilion, resplendent with beautiful peach blossoms and adorned with sparkling lights. And at DB North Plaza, an incredible 4-metre-high Lovebirds’ Paradise installation features an open birdcage amid spacious gardens. This striking attraction boasts a lovebirds’ swing, on which couples can sit back and savour special moments together in a truly picturesque setting.

But the romance doesn’t end there! Take a stroll along DB North’s Love Lock Promenade, between February 10 and 14, and you can collect a complimentary love lock (padlock) to attach to one of the hearts adorning the popular lovers’ walkway. There’s no better way to seal your love forever!

To redeem your love lock (while stocks last), simply ‘like’ the Visit Discovery Bay Facebook page, ‘like’ the Valentine’s Day post, tag three friends in the post, and present your phone at the redemption desk near the DB North Plaza clock tower between 2.30pm and 11pm.

Love Lock Promenade is also the place to enjoy a romantic horse- drawn coach ride with your Valentine.  Rides are available from February 10 to 14, from 9am to 11am and 3pm to 6pm, and last approximately 10 minutes. For more details, and to book, head to the Activity Centre at Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day in DB without the annual candlelight event on Tai Pak Wan. From 6pm till 11pm, the beach is lit up by thousands of candles arranged in giant heart-shaped displays. And, after visiting the beach, what could be better than a romantic meal for two at D’Deck, overlooking the bay?

Romantic dining indulgences are also on offer at Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong, with Café bord de Mer & Lounge offering special Taste of Romance menus, including Valentine’s Day Afternoon Tea. Available from February 9 to 14, this exquisite tea set, which includes two sparkling cocktails, is priced at just HK$368 (plus service) for two.

Then, on February 14 itself, diners  can enjoy the restaurant’s five- course Valentine’s Day Set Dinner,  with seafood delights, prime rib-eye steak and truly decadent desserts. Costing just HK$1,368 (plus service) for two, the set includes two sparkling cocktails, and diners can relax while being serenaded by live saxophone music.

Pre- and post-dinner Valentine’s Day-inspired cocktails are on offer at The Bounty Entertainment & Sports Bar, and, for those who really want to treat themselves, decadent Valentine’s Day room packages are available at the hotel.

No sooner is Valentine’s Day over, than it’s time to celebrate again, with the CNY festivities kicking off on February 15, and the extended public holiday falling from February 16 to 19.

Again, Café bord de Mer & Lounge is the place to be, as the popular restaurant is pulling out all the stops to ensure everyone can celebrate CNY in traditional style. From February 16 to 19, families can gather to enjoy the Lunch Buffet (HK$368 for adults and HK$238 for children), while the Dinner Buffet (HK$428 for adults and HK$238 for children) is available from February 15 to 19.

If you prefer to spend the CNY holidays at home, you can still make the most of Café bord de Mer & Lounge’s festive cuisine, since its classic CNY takeaway menu features an array of tempting dishes, such as roast suckling pig, sautéed tiger prawns, deep-fried crispy chicken and stir-fried turnip  cake with XO sauce. Free delivery is available within DB for orders over HK$1,388.
