Lavish Afternoon Tea & Dance

We were pampered and we loved it!

Guests at the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa were transported back in time to the days of the iconic and lavish Afternoon Tea Dance within the hotel’s grand signature venue, the Villa Corinthia.

On the 24th April, patrons at the Villa Corinthia were treated to Prosecco, scrumptious finger sandwiches, decadent desserts and freshly baked scones, after which they were invited to hit the dance floor to music created by Joe Micallef on drums, George Il-Puse on the saxophone and Godwin Lucas on the synthesiser and vocals.

The evening was compèred by Peter Carbonaro, and held in collaboration with Penhaligon’s, a perfumerie brand exclusively available at Franks.

Isla del Tango’s Aldo & Natalie, Stas & Angelina enjoyed a few beautiful tangos too!

Afternoon Tea Dance



On Sunday 24th April, we will be bringing back the glamour of the traditional British Afternoon Tea Dance at our signature venue, the Villa Corinthia. Patrons to this exclusive event will be serenated by Godwin Lucas and his band, and will have the chance to dance the afternoon away in glorious surroundings. Some tango will be played.

The elegant menu, crafted by our executive chef Stefan Hogan, will include a selection of classics like roast ham and light grain mustard finger-sandwich. This will sit side-by-side to the hand-made cakes and pastries, which include the Vhalrone Ivoire 33% violet parfait. These will be combined by a bubbly prosecco, to share with your guest.
