Capella Singapore celebrates life and the moon at their fullest


Singapore,  8 August 2011 – Capella Singapore’s Mid-Autumn Festival offerings this year provide luxury connoisseurs a truly holistic Mid-Autumn experience with a limited edition Capella Mooncake Set.

Capella Singapore’s highly-coveted mooncake sets are encased in an elegant re-useable custom-designed case, resembling that of an ornate jewellery box. Each mooncake is authentically handmade by Capella Singapore’s team of skilled Cantonese chefs.

Gracing this year’s mooncake selection are the single yolk lotus paste mooncake delicately infused with osmanthus tea and tangerine peel, as well as the time-honoured mooncake with white lotus paste and double yolks. The white lotus paste, made only of organic ingredients, is made from scratch from an age-old Cantonese recipe by Executive Chinese Chef Lee Hiu Ngai.

Included in the box is a voucher that can be exchanged for a night’s stay in one of Capella’s Premier Seaview Rooms including breakfast for two. In addition, one of the bearers of the Capella mooncake set will also find themselves the envied owner of an exclusive piece from Boucheron, the Ava Deco White Gold Diamond necklace worth S$40,000. Using only the highest quality of diamonds, of E to G in colour, and VVS and/or VS1 exclusively in purity, this necklace has more than 2.5 carats of diamonds.

The draw for the necklace will take place on 12 September, the day of celebrations for the Mid-Autumn Festival.

This elegant piece of Boucheron jewellery was specially chosen as its circle design motif closely resembles the fullness of the moon during the Mid-Autumn Festival. Some of the circles overlap artistically together to form beautifully formed crescents, reminiscent of the moon’s various stages throughout the year.

Adding to the exclusivity of the mooncakes, the first ten mooncakes boxes purchased will be hand-delivered by Rolls Royce.

Also available at Capella is a special lunar-inspired treatment at Auriga Spa. Auriga Spa, one of 21 Forbes Travel Guide 5-star rated spas in the world, offers spa treatments that are in sync with the moon, recognising that the various phases of the moon impact the body in very specific ways. As such, the Full Moon treatment which corresponds with the Mid-Autumn Festival is sure to enhance the guest’s experience of the traditional Chinese celebrations.

Capella’s mooncake set is priced at S$688+ GST. Due to overwhelming demand, interested parties are invited to call Vanessa Wong at +656591 5036 or email [email protected] to check availability. Reservations for next year’s mooncake special can also be made.
