Get excited, Joburg … the holidays are practically here! The best part is that Emperors Palace has a variety of ways to keep the family entertained this festive season! From colourful lights to colourful dishes, there’s definitely something for everyone here.
Garden Of Lights
Be enthralled by the magical Garden Of Lights this December. The entire family will enjoy the exciting journey through the garden as well as the colourful and stunning characters on display. Plus, thanks to Happyland, the kiddies can enjoy exciting funfair rides, including Jump and Smile, Break Dancer, Freeway Fantasy, Helter Skelter and the all-time favourite, Ferris Wheel.
There will also be stalls with yummy eats and drinks on sale (and lots of festive season goodies, too!). As an added bonus, children can have a photograph taken with Santa Claus … but only on selected days. With so much to do, there really isn’t anywhere else to be but at the perfectly manicured gardens at the Peermont D’oreale Grande Hotel this December.
The Garden Of Lights will be open between 5 December 2015 and 3 January 2016 from 19:00 to 22:00 daily. Entry is free … just be sure to give them a call in the event of overcast and rainy weather, to enquire if the garden will be open.
Rosetta’s – Bistro, Restaurant, Kitchen
You may have heard that Rosetta’s recently went through a revamp, and now offers a revolutionised classic buffet offering that resonates with value-for-money dining. They even offer a 24-hour bistro, which is complemented by a deli-style display area featuring a selection of freshly-made artisanal breads, paninis, cakes, an ice cream station, a milkshake station, and a waffle and pancake area.
If that’s not enough to get you excited, early risers and late diners can enjoy an à la carte, quick service eating menu with a selection of down-to-earth comfort foods … yes, please! Prepared with fine skill and great passion, signature items include Philly Beefy Cheese, Peri-Peri Chicken Livers, Wood-Fired Pizzas and Chicken Tikka Mayonnaise Sandwiches.
These holidays, the whole family can enjoy a feast every Wednesday or Saturday with a Harvest Table – rotisserie and grills, comfort foods, pan-Asian, Mediterranean, kiddies and dessert stations – for either R125 per person for lunch or R175 per person for dinner. Better yet, kids under 12 eat for free every Wednesday and Saturday! Now that’s a special we can sink our teeth into.
A Christmas Lunch At The Palace
Have you made your Christmas Day lunch plans yet? If not, Emperors Palace has got you covered! Spoil your loved ones with one of their amazing options and enjoy lunch at Rosetta’s or at their Centre Court, for about R345 per person … but you’d better hurry as seats fill up fast!
