About Valmont:
It is well known for a combination of the best of the natural and human resources in Switzerland. The latest cosmetic research findings help the brand extract beautifying essences from the ingredients found in the mountains and waters, improving the skin conditions of its customers from near and far.

Each afternoon tea includes a series of exquisite pastries, especially Matterhorn kirsch chocolate, whose look is an ode to the eponymous Alpine mountain with a traditional cherry flavor to match. Zuger rose torte is another national dessert. It features two thin layers of meringue sandwiching the moist sponge cake, crowned with edible rose petals on top. Chestnut Mont Blanc aptly evokes Switzerland’s snow-capped mountains at the end of the year as well as the country’s abundance of chestnut during autumn time. A final taste of the Swiss gastronomes’ favorite desserts, strawberry-focused Coupe Romanoff is a delightful marriage of fruity and creamy in a petite glass.

For the savory part, the guest has a chance to taste the local air-dried beef bündnerfleisch is served with pumpkin mousse and the miniature version of the braided zopf bread. A source of anti-aging agents in VALMONT’s skincare products, salmon family’s culinary value is the highlight in smoked trout sandwich with yogurt and pesto. Completing the delicious bunch is petite cheese flan with pickles jelly and truffle nibbles.

The afternoon tea menu includes a drink of the guests’ choice. Other than premium coffees and fine teas, also available is the Lobby Lounge team’s special concoction Floral Elixir. Made with a base of cold-brewed floral and peachy tea as well as honey water, rose water and apple juice – both honey and rose are ingredients of Valmont’s signature line skincare items – the beverage contains sweet, tart and floral notes which enliven the taste buds and boost the spirit.
