GIFTING WITH A DIFFERENCE THIS FESTIVE SEASON 

We all love a gift card, they are so versatile and work for both the purchaser and those in receipt of the gift. However, this year, here at The Montenotte Hotel we wanted to do something a little extra and have been working on developing new enticing gift boxes, created in true Montenotte fashion - by staying unique.

Our team led by Zuzana Brosnan, our Marketing Manager, have created some truly spectacular bespoke gifts, designed with style and sophistication, for Bellevue Spa and our new Montenotte Gin.

Bellevue Spa Presentation Boxes

At Bellevue Spa, we have always taken pride in creating bespoke luxury so working on the products in a gift format was always our next plan. The Bellevue Botanicals product line was originally created to honour the timeless world of scent. Capturing rose, lavender and rosemary while delivering therapeutic treatments, local to the Irish countryside.

We also recently created a bespoke Bamboo and Olive Blossom Scented Candle, in partnership with new Irish luxury home fragrance brand, Flourish Emporium, exclusively for Bellevue Spa.
This scented candle has relaxing and purifying properties to help release anxiety, it is hand poured and made with 100% natural soy blend, which melts at low temperature, allowing it to last longer. The melted wax can also double up as a massage oil. Candle is available to purchase at Bellevue Spa at €35.
At the Montenotte, sustainability matters to us and so we were delighted to partner with Flourish Emporium as all candles are made in a 70% carbon neutral production factory, where each one is hand poured made with natural, ethically, and sustainably sourced ingredients, free from harsh chemicals using recycled glass containers and packaging.

You can now choose our bespoke presentation gift boxes consisting of our own Bamboo and Olive Blossom Scented Candle, Bellevue Botanical Hand Cream and Bellevue Massage Oil and give a gift of relaxation to enjoy at home this Christmas. We have two presentation gift boxes to choose from, small set consisting of two products is priced at €55, larger set consisting of three products at €95, and are available to purchase directly from the excellent team at Bellevue Spa.

Montenotte Gin Presentation Box

The idea to create a sophisticated botanical gin was born at the start of 2021 when many of our team were working remotely. Our amazing Food & Beverage team worked tirelessly behind the scenes with Blackwater Distillery to create our very own Montenotte Gin inspired by our Victorian gardens.
Our specially commissioned bespoke Montenotte Gin has a unique character and flavour with an impressive depth of woody, fruity and floral flavours to create this sophisticated botanical gin. A combination of elements, amongst other botanicals, fragrant lavender, robust rhubarb, punchy pink peppercorn, and wild cardamom subtly infused to perfection by Blackwater Distillery and is now available for you to enjoy at home.
The gin bottle is now presented in a beautiful, bespoke presentation box complete with its concept origin and some delicious pairing suggestions including our signature cocktail recipe of The Royale Rose, crafted by our Bar Manager Gaëtan.
Our Montenotte Gin Presentation Box retails at €70 and is available to purchase directly from the hotel reception.

We did say gifting with a difference and that’s what we are doing at The Montenotte Hotel.

2021 - A YEAR IN REVIEW

2021 - A YEAR IN REVIEW

2021 - A YEAR IN REVIEW – but a year to be very proud.

As we say goodbye to 2021, a year that has arguably been hugely challenging for our industry, we can’t help but be hopeful that 2022 will be a better one.

Even with all the challenges that faced us this year, what with us being in restrictions for the first five months of the year, here at The Montenotte Hotel, like so many others we pivoted, and this started by us opening our Vintage Van Café outside the front door of the hotel. The opening of the Vintage Van allowed us to bring some of our team members back to work. The locals here around the hotel in the Montenotte area, loved the Vintage Van Café as they went for walks within their 5KM radius. We are so appreciative of the support that the local community provided us with during those early days of 2021.
