Valentine’s Day Menus
Svago – Ooh, we were excited to rediscover this elegant dining restaurant this year. Conveniently located in KLCC and with a new Spanish chef infusing elements of surprise into the menus, a Valentine’s date here is a very good choice.
Marble 8 – Marble 8 embraces the luxe lifestyle with full gusto at any time of year, but this Valentine’s Day they’ve injected extra bling into their menu to help you woo your darling in glamourous style.
Marble 8 – Table for Two
Cedar on 15 – We think this elegant dining restaurant is a hidden gem in the city centre. It’s reasonably priced for the quality of food and it serves some of the best steaks in KL. Don’t miss the Grilled Black Angus Loin, or the Wagyu on Himalayan Salt Block.
Cedar on 15 – Incredible Steaks
Marini’s on 57 – The food is superb, but I ask, “Can you beat this view?”

La Scala – One of the most stylish settings in Kuala Lumpur also serves up unpretentious but delicious Italian cuisine. Don’t miss the beef with Cognac and mushroom sauce, or the house-made limoncello.
Swasana Spa – This spa stands out for its fresh contemporary feel in the heart of the city, skilled therapists and natural spa products. The Asmara Dana couple’s package is a perfect pick to experience a luxuriant few hours with your partner.
Donna Spa – Donna Spa brings a little piece of Bali to the centre of KL in both its design and with its therapists. Known for their extensive range of natural ingredients used in treatments, their Harmony Extreme package takes full advantage of all these benefits, gifting a marvellous way to impress a loved one.
The Majestic Spa – The only spa we’ve visited in KL that begins with a cocktail (!), the Majestic Spa recreates a beautiful art deco ambience, with highly skilled therapists and consistently superb treatments to match.

Bloom2U – I ordered this bunch, Festival de Cannes, to celebrate hubby’s movie premier night. It however, along with many other beautiful bunches, would make a gorgeous Valentine’s gift. All flowers from Bloom2U are fresh and of supreme quality. Cloaked in pretty water-resistant wrappings and with customizable gift cards, any receiver is sure to be impressed.
Valentine’s Artisan Cookie Gift Boxes – These simple yet sweet creations from Miss Ellie Teahouse can be yours with a two day advance order. At only RM15 per box, they’re an affordable way to show you care. Choose either Chocolate Mint Buttercrisps made with high-grade cocoa, subtle hints of mint and a sprinkling of delicate crushed French rose petals, or crumbly buttery Cranberry Pisatchio Cookies studded with gems of sweet-sourish cranberries and nutty roasted pistachios. Mixed boxes available too.

Sweet Cakes, Cupcakes and Chocolates – The Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur helps to sweeten up Valentine’s Day with some love themed treats. Go grand with a beautiful Valentine’s Day Designer Cake (RM190+ 1kg) choosing from butter, chocolate, red velvet, carrot, marble butter, and brownie flavours. Offer small bites of happiness with pretty Cupcakes (RM8.50+), or gift the all-time crowd pleaser of a box of specialty crafted Pralines (RM 55+ per box of 18 pieces).
The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur – Why not make a night or weekend of it at the packed-with-ambience Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur. Begin with a Majestic Spa Treatment, move on to an English Afternoon Tea in the Orchid Conservatory, follow with a classic cocktail in The Smoke House, continue with dinner at Colonial Cafe, follow with a black and white movie in the lounge cinema and retire to a suite with 24 hour butler service in the Majestic Wing. Signed, sealed and delivered – s/he’s yours!
