I had the pleasure of visiting Kona for an afternoon tea experience last week and it was so blissful. London is so busy and I treasure the moments in which I can just hide away from the hustle and bustle and relax. Kona, is a gem in the heart of the properties comprising the hotel, tucked within the internal courtyard.

Myself and my friend were warmly welcomed by the hosts and taken to our Christmas table. We were going to have a Christmas afternoon tea, while other tables in the adjacent room were set up for a mad hatter’s Tea party. There are multiple servings a day, starting at around noon and finishing by 6pm. There are variations of the afternoon tea, including champagne, coffee or a set of teas.

The festive afternoon tea was full of cute, little pastries and mouth watering sandwiches. I loved the table setting having a nutcracker and we did more than a few boomerangs with him. I also never thought about the c=fact that back in the day, people actually used to use them to crack nuts (doooh) but I never thought about it until @mylifestylememoir did not enlighten me about it.

Cheers to that

All in all the food was amazing, the ambience was very festive and relaxing and we loved it. Also, I was really grateful that the guys allowed me to work in their private salon at the back, after I finished gorging on food. I was running late to get home before my evening calls and they just let me hang around there, now that is what I call a five star service.
