Our New Year’s Eve is a very popular event.
On New Year’s Eve, Blantyre throws one of its most elegant events, and it’s a perfect option for those who are looking for an intimate celebration. Arrive any time on December 30 to enjoy afternoon tea from 3 to 4 p.m., and then sit down to a special dinner at 7 p.m. The next day, you’ll have free time at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel until the black-tie ball begins at 7 p.m. It starts off with caviar and champagne in the main hall and music room, then dinner and endless dancing, a midnight toast and finally, a small soup course before you retire to bed. To mark the first day of the new year, brunch is served from 8 a.m. to noon — for those who need to more time to recover from the prior night’s festivities — and horse and sleigh rides are offered to guests. The charge for the three-day extravaganza is $1,000 per person, which includes meals, house wines, tax and gratuity, and it’s added to your bill when you check out. It’s a much better way to ring in the new year than watching the ball drop on TV.
