Beating the February Blues With Valentine’s & Chinese New Year Celebrations


February is the month when we learn whether it will be an early or late Spring; however, whether the groundhog sees his shadow or not, the month still seems to drag on. The weather, the lack of sunshine – it’s a recipe for the blues. That’s why we’re checking out the Peninsula this month, with Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year celebrations breathing happiness back into our lives. The iconic hotel, located in Beverly Hills, is helping guests unwind with the help of their exceptional cuisine and indulgent spa.

If you’re looking to sweep that special someone off their feet, we’d recommend heading to the Peninsula rooftop to mark Valentine’s Day. Couples can enjoy the hotel Spa’s blissful Duet Moonlight Massage, performed under the stars at the Peninsula’s cabanas. Combined with a decadent four-course dinner served al fresco by the pool, it’s a guarantee for romance.

Or, if you’re boycotting Valentine’s this year, we’d recommend celebrating the arrival of the Year of the Snake with the Peninsula’s shopping vacation. With a $1,000 gift certificate for Van Cleef & Arpels and a special room rate of $888 (eight being a lucky number that signifies good fortune in Chinese culture), guests are certain to be feeling lucky. Cap it off with an invitation to the hotel’s glamorous Chinese New Year party, and voilà! The perfect way to ring in this special occasion.

Check into the “Pink Suite”, also known as the Grand Deluxe Suite (not only our favorite but also the choice of celebs and musicians during the Grammys) for the perfect stay, whether it romance or a New Year you’re celebrating.

The Peninsula Beverly Hills is located at 9882 S Santa Monica Blvd,  Beverly Hills, CA 90212. For more information call (310) 551-2888 or visit their website.
