Spa and Seaberry Afternoon Tea Package
This August and September, make time for some well-deserved indulgence for your mind and body at Hotel ICON. The hotel launches a weekend treat combining the perfect spa pampering at Angsana Spa and the superfood Seaberry Afternoon Tea at Above & Beyond Chinese Restaurant with the Hong Kong’s most breath-taking views of Victoria Harbour.
Adapted from ancient Balinese techniques, the Javanese massage relieves body tension and promotes better sleep patterns. Spa aficionados can look forward to this body treatment celebrating the use of natural harmonising massage oil that soothes the minas music is to the soul, with key essential oils such as lavender, ylang ylang, geranium and jasmine.
The pastries in the Afternoon Tea not only pay homage to the Cantonese flavours for which Above & Beyond is known, but incorporate punchy flavours from the little know superfood – the Seaberry. The zesty Seaberry fruit tastes like a combination of passionfruit and orange, and is packed full of vitamins, which have anti-aging properties and help build immunity. Other health benefits include detoxing, improving blood circulation, skin hydration, the promotion of collagen production, and stress relieving qualities.

Knowing this the Lemon Tart with Seaberry and Seaberry Roll Cake with 33% White Chocolate on the menu arguably taste even more vibrant and delicious! Each of the specially crafted sweet delicacies incorporate Seaberry in an entirely different way, presenting a powerful juxtaposition of flavours.
Chef Danny’s Seaberry Tapioca with Mango Pudding incorporates tapioca, popular in Cantonese desserts, however instead of soaking the balls in water, they are soaked in Seaberry juice, giving the dessert a fresh, fruity flavour. The Seaberry with 66% Dark Chocolate has a bitter dark chocolate case that bursts open to reveal a soft centre of sweet Seaberry. Another sweet to tie in flavours of the east is the Seaberry Tea Agar-agar, this jelly-like dessert incorporates Seaberry tea powder, giving the treat a sweet tea flavour.
