With Valentine's day fresh in their minds, a leading luxury hotel in the UK unveiled the world’s most expensive first date package ever, at a cool £45,000 ($72,200) per couple. The von Essen’s Amberley Castle in West Sussex, which happens to be the wedding venue for TV star Holly Willoughby and a romantic getaway for celebrities like the Beckhams and Ricky Gervais, has created the package to help unlucky romantics with big bucks enjoy a romantic, unforgettable first date.
For £45,000, they will take care of all your needs. To make sure you reach it on time, a helicopter or private jet will pick you up from your location in the UK and land you in the hotel’s grounds.
There will be a team of stylists, hairdressers, beauty therapists and even dentists to give you a killer makeover. The couple can enjoy a 10-course intricate menu, created by award-winning head chef James Dugan, in entire privacy, as there will be no other guests at the 19-bedroom luxury castle that night. To avoid presumptions and help those with over-eagerness, the hotel will also offer two luxurious suites for the couple.
A spokesman for von Essen hotels said…
Although it seems extremely expensive, a first impression is so critical. If this package helps ensure that a couple start off on the right track to achieve a lasting relationship then it could be worth every penny.
Oliver Smith, General Manager at Amberley Castle, cited…
Amberley Castle is one of the most romantic hotels in the world so we see lots of first dates. After witnessing one recently go not quite so well we decided to step in and create this package to help out hapless romantics.
If you still have the cash and think the £45,000 date is just not enough, you can go for the hotel’s rose champagne bubble bath at an extra £60,000 per couple. The offers runs through December 23, 2011.
