To mark a new partnership with Krug Champagne, Shangri-La Hotel Tokyo has created the exclusive Krug Suite experience, providing guests with the ultimate luxury stay in the heart of Tokyo. Up until 29 December 2017, guests will have the opportunity to stay in the hotel’s luxurious Presidential Suite where they’ll be served a six-course dinner created by the hotel’s executive chef Andrea Ferrero amid opulent Krug-inspired décor.
Transformed with this exclusive partnership in mind, the suite now reflects the new collaboration through its Krug-inspired artworks, creative floral displays, leather-bound books and candelabras. In addition, custom-made Krug ‘Joseph’ champagne flutes, which are named after the champagne house’s founder, feature alongside other Krug accessories and are complemented by specially selected music to complete the experience.
The six-course meal will comprise of the chef’s celebrated seasonal cuisine, with hors d’oeuvres such as iced cauliflower fondant with caviar and Wagyu beef sushi with dry white truffles, followed by main dishes such as lamb loin alongside roasted root vegetables with five spice, and desserts like Iwate farm ice cream with a chocolate and meringue sphere and caramelized bananas. Throughout the six courses, guests are introduced to four premium Krug champagnes such as Krug Grande Cuvée, Krug Clos Du Mesnil, Krug Vintage 2002 and Krug Rose.
The following morning, guests are then treated to an in-suite champagne breakfast and throughout their stay they have complimentary access to the hotel’s exclusive Horizon Club Lounge. The Krug Suite experience costs $10,727 per night and couples can expand the dining experience for $536 per additional guest, with dining space for up to eight people.
