Ho Chi Minh City's Caravelle Hotel will start its March promotions with a fresh buffet for Women's Day.
On March 8, the Nineteen Restaurant buffet will feature local and international specialties prepared by male chefs at the hotel.
The dishes will be cooked to order, including saffron marinated fish filet with almonds and golden raisins, garlic and herb butter grilled butterfly river prawns, and mustard crusted beef medallion with shallot comfit.
There will be an extensive spread of entrees, salads, seafood and cheeses, besides a white chocolate fountain.
The Women's Day buffet on the ground floor costs VND1,013,000++ (US$48++) a person.
Following Women's Day, the Reflections Restaurant on the third floor will feature a one-week US Beef Feast until March 16.
Prices range between VND450,000-990,000 ($47) for 150g to 350g cuts. Steaks will be cooked to order on a charcoal grill.
Each serving includes three cuts of US beef tenderloin, rib eye and strip loin, with accompanying sauces.
Between March 12-18, the hotel's Lobby Lounge is preparing takeaway boxes of egg tarts, a Hong Kong delicacy.
Each box of eight or 16 pieces goes for VND418,000 or VND638,000 ($35).
Next, live ocean-catch seafood on ice will be available for sampling at the rooftop Saigon Saigon Bar from March 15 to 21.
Lobster, fresh chucked oysters, crab, prawns, green mussels and baby clams will be available with a selection of smoked salmon, scallops and breaded fried squid for VND880,000++ ($42++) for two people.
More excitement will return to the 9th floor bar at the end of the month, as well as on the last Saturday of every month this year, with a Cuban-themed Carnival Party starting at 9 p.m.
The carnival bash will go with potent cocktails, samba dancers in costumes and non-stop music from Cuban bands Luna Negra and Warapo.
Caravelle is also offering a room promotion with free daily buffet breakfast and one-way airport pick up until the end of June.
The package is for a minimum three night stay in a deluxe room at VND4,240,000++ ($203++) for a single and VND4,670,000++ ($224++) for a double.
