Nairobi, February, 2017: dusitD2 Nairobi will hold its 2nd Annual Chocolate Festival from 11th to 14th February 2017, to celebrate Valentine’s Day. This year’s festival will feature a chocolate buffet menu, Devarana Spa Chocolate wrap, Valentine’s Day special four course dinner and Valentine’s Day Stay package.
“dusitD2 appreciates the strong connection between chocolates and love and as a hotel, our mission is to bring people together to celebrate love. We endeavor to do this by offering world class cuisines and personalized service to all our guests as we celebrate the month of love in this year’s Chocolate Festival,” says Mr. Michael Metaxas, General Manager at dusitD2 Nairobi.
The dusitD2 Chocolate Festival not only offers a luxurious and chic Valentine’s Day plan, but also offers world class cuisine and first class service at a competitive promotional rate.
Each night, during the four days, guests will have the opportunity to indulge in a single origin Chocolate buffet menu from Sao Tome, Madagascar, Brazil and Ecuador, with over 40 new and latest chocolate designs prepared by the hotel’s new pastry head Chef, Anis Mouldi. These include warm chocolate fondant, chocolate tablet, pralines, chocolate mandiant, chocolate waffles, chocolate entremets, choux and mousses among others.
“Chocolates are a gift of love loaded with nutrients. Dark Chocolate is particularly a powerful source of antioxidants,” says Mr. Anis Mouldi, Head Pastry Chef at dusitD2 Nairobi.
However key to hotel guests, is the Valentine’s Day night stay package for two that includes bed and breakfast at the hotel’s opulent D’light rooms complete with a bouquet of roses, a bottle of sparkling wine and a selection of home-made chocolates at a competitive price of Kshs. 17,900.

Just like last year’s Chocolate Festival, two chocolate paintings (by Patrick Peter Kinuthia) will be auctioned and the proceeds will go to charity under the theme, ‘Chocolates for Good’.
“We recognize both the opportunity and the profound responsibility that is ours to foster and support development in the communities we operate in as we play our role in the hospitality sector. The hotel has continually refined its social responsibility strategy, allowing dusitD2 to support charitable programs in a way that encourages growth without program interference. One of the ways we are achieving this is through the ‘Chocolates for Good’ initiative,” adds Mr. Metaxas.
