A Season of Magic at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong This Christmas
This festive season, a larger-than-life confectionary bear named Charlie will reappear at the Lobby of Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong. Springing out of a magic box, this festive gingerbread mascot rides a biplane under a galaxy of stars spreading holiday cheer. Next to this magnificent centrepiece is the Festive Desk - a Christmas gift shop and directory where all wishes are granted. Receptionists are on hand to assist guests with festive dinner options at the Hotel’s restaurants, or to plan at home holiday celebrations with Chef Andrea Accordi’s roast turkey and other take home holiday foods.
Guests will have plenty of reason to linger in the Lobby this year under the twinkling lights of the Christmas tree. Rich aromas will fill the air as shoppers order cups of ultra-decadent, made-to-order Valrhona hot chocolate while ticking off their shopping lists. In the days leading up to Christmas, kids of all ages will wonder at the feats of festive artists as they perform magic, juggle and even stilt walk, animating the spirit of the season.
When all festive events are sorted, the Spa at Four Seasons is the answer to any party prep with the new Golden Sparkle treatment, sure to bring out the festive glow.
Taking Home Parties to the Next Level
Four Seasons can make a magazine-perfect Christmas party come true. Chef Andrea Accordi’s take-home roast turkey, is slow cooked at 69 degrees Celsius for 10 hours, increasing the heat during the last 15 minutes to yield moist meat with crispy, golden skin. To go with the turkey, Chef Accordi dips into his own heritage to whip up seasonal side dishes with an Italian twist. The chestnut stuffing is a stand out with a rich and aromatic mélange of caramelised chestnut, celeriac, rosemary and Italian sausages.
For beef lovers, the new lava stone charcoal grilled Australian tomahawk steak is a showstopper of a take-home dinner. The beef is grilled on the outside to a crusty perfection and then slow-cooked in the oven to retain the juices and tenderness of the meat.
The "Plateau of Antipasti" will complete any dinner spread. Chef Accordi curates the best Italian salami, prime cold cuts, artisan cheeses and pickled vegetables from farmers of Italy, Spain and France. This mouth-watering platter consists of seven meats and seven cheeses accompanied by homemade chestnuts, baguettes and focaccia.
Order via the Festive Desk at least 72 hours before the desired pick up day.

Produced in limited quantity, this dome-shaped holiday fruitcake originated in Milan in 1500s. It takes 28 hours for the pastry chefs to bake from scratch, using the Hotel’s famous sourdough starter, candied orange, lemon and raisins, and only the best butter and eggs.
