Four of the best ways to give the gift of travel

A box of chocolates or Berlin for the night? Socks... or a spa break? It’s time to switch up your present-giving with a Rocco Forte Hotels gift certificate. Boasting a global five-star portfolio, the family-run hotel group offers a wealth of unique ideas, from hand-crafted cocktails to first-class pampering. Here’s how you can give a piece of luxury...

01 Food

Food for thought

With Michelin-starred Italian chef Fulvio Pierangelini at the helm as Creative Director of Food, Rocco Forte Hotels know how to serve up an unforgettable culinary experience. Try the Champagne afternoon tea for two in the elegant Palm Court of iconic Scottish hotel, The Balmoral in Edinburgh, for a delightfully decadent afternoon. Or, book someone the gift of a Michelin-starred tasting menu for two at the hotel's Number One restaurant. Here, expect glamorous, historic surroundings mixed with a menu that celebrates the very best of modern Scottish cooking. 

02 Weekend

Something for the weekend

It’s a special anniversary and you’re looking to give something a little more memorable than a bouquet of flowers and a card; a private Duomo tour should do it. Part of a specially-curated room package at the Hotel Savoy in Florence, you’ll have an exclusive opportunity to soak up the Renaissance beauty of the city’s cathedral during your romantic two-night break. Looking for a more high-octane adventure? The hotel’s horseback riding tour will sweep you off your feet deep into the breathtakingly beautiful Tuscan countryside.

03 Wedding

Wedding belles

It may be the most important day of their lives, but newlyweds can feel a little bereft once the Big Day is over. So rather than buying them a toaster or cutlery set, surprise the happy couple with a luxurious pampering treatment that’ll stave off any post-wedding blues. Grooms will particularly appreciate the Gentleman's Programme at Rome's Hotel De Russie (think fresh-feeling facials and aromatic body massages) while brides will love the Feeling Fabulous top-to-toe treatment in the supremely elegant surrounds of the Spa at Brown's Hotel, London.

04 Business

Taking care of business

If you’re looking to reward staff or surprise clients, what better gesture of goodwill than giving them a Rocco Forte Hotels gift certificate? Whether it’s a four-course dinner in Rome, an unforgettable pampering session in Sicily or a chocolate workshop in Brussels, there’s something to suit all tastes. Spoilt for choice? Give a Rocco Forte Hotels monetary gift certificate and let them make the decision themselves. Whatever you choose, you can be sure that each and every experience will be as individual as the hotel itself. And presents don’t get any better than that.
