Less drab, more fab! This is the first thought that came to mind when we went popped in at Mövenpick Hotel and Residences Nairobi last week. Weekday afternoons, especially with this heat, can feel a little tiring (and drab) if you’re not out and about. We were invited for the launch of the Accor Live Limitless luxury lifestyle loyalty program in Kenya.
Accor Live Limitless
Accor Live Limitless (shortened to ALL) is a loyalty program that allows members to access the full suite of restaurants, bars, nightclubs and more amazing experiences under the Accor brand. According to Accor, this new lifestyle loyalty program offers, “rewards, services, and experiences across their entire ecosystem to bring value to everyday life whether you work, live or play.” You can check out the participating brands and offers at ALL Nairobi.
If you’ve been to The View restaurant, then you know how splendid the restaurant is. Over glasses of wine, good food and fun conversations, we had a wonderful afternoon. We were also engrossed in our conversations and dining that it only took momentary glances to realize we were revolving, noting the change in scenery.
Our first meal was the lobster bisque soup which was savoury with a subdued sharp taste. We had this with some bread. This paired perfectly with the John B Sauvignon Blanc and served as a great aperitif.
Next up was the salad. We had the beetroot carpaccio which was delicious and refreshing thanks to the melon, strawberries, zucchini and Parmesan flakes. This was paired with the Hesketh Lost Weekend Chardonnay.
The main course was not only filling but appetizing. It’s safe to say not all of us had it in us to down the entire meal. This goes to show the restaurant went all out at this pairing. We had the slow cooking lamb shank with creamy mashed potatoes and vegetable ratatouille. This was paired with Shiraz which had a sharp sweet taste, which worked well with the lamb.
Dessert is a favourite of mine and The View had me sold. We had the chocolate djaduja with raspberry sorbet and caramelized walnuts. And the wine, oh the wine… it’s exactly what the dessert needed. We had the Moscato de Setubal.
This is just but a taste of what the Accor Live Limitless loyalty program has to offer. Make sure to check out the Accor brands, earn points and enjoy a premium lifestyle.
