Crowne Plaza Terrigal’s Festival of Chocolate

These July school holidays Crowne Plaza Terrigal is celebrating all things decadent and delicious with our very own Festival of Chocolate. Beginning the festivities on World Chocolate Day, Friday the 7th of July, the following week will be filled with a smorgasbord of chocolate inspired activities and a celebration of sweet indulgences.

From the moment you step foot in the Crowne Plaza Terrigal, you will be entering a chocoholics paradise with our captivating chocolate lobby display. Kids will be delighted with special Kids Zone with chocolate inspired activities such as chocolate cupcake decorating and a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Movie Night. Breakfast time is made all the more exciting with a special chocolate breakfast station featuring waffles, pancakes and delicious hot chocolate sauce.

Adults will also be treated during the Festival of Chocolate with specially created chocolate cocktails in our Lord Ashley Lounge. Take in the spectacular views while you sip on a delectable chocolate creation made especially for you by our talented bar team. Our in-house restaurant Seasalt will be offering a special chocolate inspired dessert menu offering decadent treats celebrating all things cocoa.

The end of the festival will conclude on Sunday the 16th July, where our Seasalt Restaurant will be transformed into a chocoholics dream with our Chocolate Buffet High Tea. With a glass of sparkling wine on arrival, spend the afternoon tasting your way through an array of chocolate treats. For lovers of chocolate, this event is not to be missed, book today and don’t miss out.

If you are a sweet treat fanatic, have a secret hoard of chocolate stashed somewhere or Nutella is a way of life rather than a breakfast spread, come celebrate with fellow chocoholics these winter holidays. For a unique school holiday getaway that even Willy Wonka would be envious of, Crowne Plaza Terrigal offers you the perfect winter escape.
