An Afternoon Of Decadence At Hilton Durban


Few things satisfy the sophisticated section of your palate like an afternoon of decadence that can be experienced with the age-old tradition of an afternoon High Tea. The elaborate ritual made popular by Anna, Duchess of Bedford in the Victorian Era, was used as a delicious treat to bridge the gap between the two main meals of the day – lunch and dinner.

“The delicate nature of eating bite-sized sandwiches and tiny samples of sweet and savoury treats offers a different way of enjoying an afternoon of scrumptious culinary experiences,” says Executive Chef Janine Fourie at Hilton Durban.

Few places in Durban offer a truly magical afternoon of delight like Hilton Durban located in the city. Once you enter the Coral Lounge where the High Tea is hosted, you escape the activity of the city and you are greeted by tranquillity and a glimpse of decadence.

Indulge in a sophisticated and perfectly decadent High Tea at Coral Lounge with a delicious selection of treats and array of superior teas. “The Coral Lounge is a delight for the eyes – whether it’s for a birthday, baby shower, bridal shower or simply an excuse to catch up, sharing a pot of tea is very much a special occasion and a great form of self-indulgence,” added Chef Janine. “The high tea table is a visual spectacle of cakes, pastries, quiches, savouries and baked scones all freshly prepared by our talented pastry team.”

High Tea is served every Saturday afternoon between 14:00 and 17:00 for R270pp.

For a truly extravagant experience you don’t want to miss out on, call 031 336 8100 or email Mildred.Mgobhozi@hilton.comto make a reservation. Bookings for 30 or more guests can be arranged any day of the week.
