Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur in-collaboration with Halcyon Days, Malaysia presents the Halcyon Days inspired British Afternoon Tea at Altitude, which is only available from 15 July to 31 August 2020. This limited time afternoon tea is available from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm daily; priced at RM148 Nett per person inclusive of an exclusive Halcyon Days gift card worth RM100 to spend at the newly opened Halcyon Days at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur which is directly connected to Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur via the hotel’s private air-conditioned overhead bridge.

I actually tried a seasonal afternoon tea at Altitude at Banyan Tree some time back (which you can read about here – https://timchew.net/2018/12/03/december-2018-festive-afternoon-tea-at-altitude-banyan-tree-kuala-lumpur/) and I must say that Altitude offers an enchanting and panoramic view of the Kuala Lumpur skyline from 53 storeys up, including the Petronas Twin Towers, as well as being a comfortable and charming venue for afternoon tea. It is immensely popular on weekends (it’s even rather full on Thursdays and Fridays) so I’d highly recommend prior reservations.

Halcyon Days was established in 1950 as an emporium of antique gifts in Mayfair, London that specialised in 17th century enamelware. Until today the brand continues to create their signature enamel pieces, but are now also known as the destination for luxury gifts, English fine bone china and fashion accessories. Halcyon Days is one (1) of only fourteen (14) companies in the world to hold all three Royal warrants to the British Royal Household, and thus ensure that products are consistently of the highest quality.

The art of enamelling on copper has been carried out in England since the 1740s, and Halcyon Days’ team of highly skilled craftsmen and master artists employ refined techniques that have been handed down for generations. The company keeps tradition at its heart, and actively promotes, cherishes, develops and maintains British craftsmanship and manufacturing. The brand take great pride in creating and delivering exceptional and unique luxury gifts for a discerning, international clientele.

The Malaysian store which is located at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur is the first franchise store in the world, and now offers local and regional shoppers a chance to obtain the brand’s products which make wonderful gifts designed to last a lifetime.
