You know what? I can’t believe that I forgot to wish you all a very happy Chinese New Year in my last post. It’s a bit poor, I know, seeing that I’m Chinese and all. But I do have a good excuse. While you were cracking lobster shells with your bare hands and collecting Red Packets with glee, I had my hands full with a suitcase, a pram and a guitar. As you would have seen on Instagram, hubby, Winston and I checked into the Park Hyatt Melbourne over the weekend for a relaxing getaway to celebrate the start of parenthood, early Valentine’s Day and of course, Chinese New Year.
The Park Hyatt Melbourne has a very special place in my heart. When I first attended a fashion high tea there last year in February, I was actually a few weeks pregnant, although I was not aware yet. Later in October, before Winston was born, I was invited to a brunch at the hotel’s first-class restaurant, Radii, to sample their revamped healthier menu and to discover all the new personal touches they have added to better their customers’ experience. You may recall the delicious dishes in this post.
Although the Park Hyatt Melbourne is an opulent and luxurious hotel, it is also very family friendly. Did you know that it’s affiliated with St Vincent Private’s Maternity Unit? I have friends who stayed there after their bubs were born. Since discovering first hand the superior facilities, services and the guilt-free food the hotel offered last year, I couldn’t wait to bring my boys along. Where better than the Park Hyatt Melbourne for our very first family escape?
That’s why I was thrilled when the Park Hyatt invited me to come and stay in one of their beautiful rooms, the Club Deluxe Room, (it’s the one up there in the centre with the bay windows and balcony), sample their sumptuous food and, of course, gallivant through their luxurious surrounds taking photos all the way.
Upon our arrival, a friendly porter, a hand-written note, egg tarts (how did they know these are my favourites?!), a portable baby cot and a clothes steamer awaited us.
So if you would like to see all the splendour of the Park Hyatt Melbourne, I will be revealing what I got up to on our weekend stay in the coming weeks. Sorry to be a tease! But if you want to see it for yourself, you better book yourself in at the Park Hyatt Melbourne with your special someone.
For Valentine’s Day, the hotel is offering a special Celebration Package. Why not arrive in style with a bottle of chilled French Champagne and decadent handmade chocolates and enjoy breakfast-in-bed the next day in your luxurious room? You can take your time with breakfast as they even offer a 2pm late checkout and valet parking.
So, a very joyous belated Year of the Horse, and stay tuned to Cecylia.com for all the stylish shenanigans!
[spoiler title=”中文版”]我很抱歉上个星期忘了祝你新年快乐。中国人怎能忘记过年呢？但我有一个很好的借口。当你右手在吃龙虾面，左手收集红包的时候，我手提着行李箱，婴儿车和一把吉他。你可能在Instagram上看到，上周五丈夫，宝宝和我去墨尔本的Park Hyatt旅馆住了一晚，为了庆祝我们刚走上作父母的路程，情人节和中国新年。
虽然墨尔本Park Hyatt酒店是一间豪华的宾馆，但它也是家非常家庭友好的旅馆。你知道吗，它和St Vincent 私人医院的产科部有联系。我有朋友当他们的宝宝出生后，医院送他们去Park Hyatt旅馆住。当我新身体验了旅馆的优待，我很想带丈夫一起来。既然这是宝宝出生后我们第一次住旅馆，还有那一家比Park Hyatt旅馆更适合我们？
因此当他们邀请我来住一夜的时候，而且是他们的俱乐部豪华大床房， （就是在第一张照片里最中心有个大阳台的那一间） 。我们很有福品尝了他们丰盛的食物，并且在豪华的旅馆到处拍一系列时尚的照。
我们刚到，一位友好的服务员就帮我们将所有的行李送到房间，桌子上有一张手写的问候卡和一盘蛋挞（他们怎么知道这是我最爱吃的甜点？ ！ ），宝宝有他自己的婴儿床，并有一台衣服蒸笼机等待着我们。
