Robb Report (Malaysia) - - Ultimate Gift Guide - By AARON DE SILVA

Your Lalique ex­pe­ri­ence be­gins in Sin­ga­pore. Travel to France with Sin­ga­pore Air­lines and dis­cover the lux­ury and com­fort of the new Lalique-styled A380 first class cab­ins. Then en­joy a one-night stay at Villa Rene Lalique in Win­gen­sur-moder, near Stras­bourg.

The Villa, built by the leg­endary de­signer Rene Lalique in 1920, has been trans­formed into a Re­lais & Chateaux five-star ho­tel, with a gourmet restau­rant awarded two Miche­lin stars in Jan­uary 2016.

In each of the six suites, Lalique crys­tal dec­o­rates the bed frames, dress­ing ta­bles, bed­side ta­bles, so­fas and mir­rors. The Lalique life­style ex­pe­ri­ence con­tin­ues with din­ner in the restau­rant, de­signed by renowned Swiss ar­chi­tect Mario Botta and headed by chef JeanGe­orges Klein.

As a very priv­i­leged gift, you will leave the fac­tory with a Lalique de­canter and six wine glasses en­graved with your name.
