Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts teamed with French sparkling wine brand Chandon to create a limited-edition bottle design called Avec Amour. The special sparkling wine is only available at Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts properties in China.
“Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts and Chandon Sparkling Wines both share French roots and we believe that the coming together of these two brands will refresh the concept of savoring the good life for Le Méridien’s guests in China. We look to expand this collaboration into more markets across Asia Pacific in 2020,” said Mike Fulkerson, vice president, brand and marketing, Asia Pacific, Marriott International.
Avec Amour means “with love,” and Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts offers its additional Avec Amour by Le Méridien global offer in hopes more travelers celebrate the love and romance of travel, and the recognition of all kinds of love, both romantic and platonic. The offer includes Kir Royale aperitifs and dark chocolate amenities.
Additionally, for a limited time, Le Méridien guests enjoy special Avec Amour experiences at select properties. Enjoy a sparkling wine and cheese pairing at Le Méridien Hangzhou Binjiang Hotel; a Chandon breakfast or lunch at Le Méridien Xiamen Hotel; or a French sparkling afternoon tea at Le Royal Méridien Shanghai Hotel.
