The exclusive International Date Nights are curated staycation packages full of experiences, romance and relaxation. Treat yourself and your partner to an immersive travel experience right in Brisbane, all from the comfort of your ultra-luxe hotel suite -no stress, no passport required.

We were lucky enough to get a sneak preview of what to expect – and are here to bring you all the deets so you can whisk your loved one away on an international date night (without needing to leave Brisbane).

French Date Night Time

For a so-Frenchy, so-chic retreat, book a romantic rendezvous on Saturday 2 October to experience an International Date Night in France. 

The Gallic-themed getaway includes a GoBoat experience on the river with a picnic of  French treats and a bottle of Moët & Chandon, luxury transfers to and from Kangaroo Point in the Hotel X Mercedes AMG SUV and an indulgent dinner at French bistro Bisou Bisou. 

The Hotel X Mercedes is the ultimate in luxe-chauffered style. You will definitely turn heads and make an entrance when you arrive.

The ooh-la-la in-room experience continues with a French martini on arrival, specially selected  French films, such as Les Enfants du Paradis and Amélie, to enjoy with ice-cream and popcorn plus a stylish take-home gift of Karl Lagerfeld designer amenities and a book about the late fashion icon. 

A Japanese Date Night

If the edgy style and culinary creativity of neon-lit Tokyo appeals, book a suite stay for the  International Date Night in Japan on Saturday 9 October

The night begins with the delectable street food menu of yakitori, sashimi and cocktails at Japanese izakaya Boom Boom Room, including luxury valet transfers to and from the popular  City restaurant. 

The Boom Boom Room has an amazing ambience and the food was all delish. I tried a bunch of dishes I had never experienced before – it was definitely a night for adventure. Our waitress Steph was so much fun, and it was obvious that she enjoyed her job. She was bubbly and vibrant and made some brilliant recommendations. A total superstar.

Back in your Hotel X suite, say “kanpai!” with a sake station, Japanese sweet and savoury snacks and pampering face masks for two while you watch curated film classics, including Seven Samurai and Tokyo Sonata, and enjoy a take-home selection of T2 Green Tea. 

Why you need a Luxe Staycation

Hotel X General Manager Daniel Moran said International Date Nights recreates the joy of travelling overseas in a luxe staycation. 

“We designed International Date Nights to bring all the best parts of an overseas holiday to  Hotel X, opening up the world at a time when international travel is restricted,” Mr Moran said.

“We’re excited to treat our travel-hungry guests to an immersive staycation with an  international flavour by transporting guests to the popular overseas destinations of France and  Japan through bespoke stay, dine and play experiences.”
