The world's most expensive dining experience, priced at USD $2,000,000 for 2 diners, is being presented by Russian-based WORLD OF DIAMONDS (WOD) Group in collaboration with CÉ LA VI Singapore - a lifestyle destination under the Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy (LVMH) Group.
Russian diamond behemoth WORLD OF DIAMONDS Group is celebrating 15 years together with CÉ LA VI Singapore – the destination launched by L Capital Asia, the Asian private equity business sponsored by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy (LVMH) – which is counting 6 years.
When the masters of diamonds and lifestyle join forces, you can expect no compromise for the world’s most expensive, and exclusive culinary experience, for two diners only. Mr Karan Tilani, Director of the WOD Group, states, “CÉ LA VI is a diamond in the sky. This could be the ultimate proposal, an exceptional occasion, or simply a celebration of life."
The 8-hour retreat begins with a phenomenal air, land and sea journey – commencing with a 45 minute helicopter ride offering scenic wonders of Singapore, a chauffeured Rolls-Royce drive, followed by a luxury private cruise. As the duo rise elegantly upon CÉ LA VI’s highly coveted venue – atop the 57th floor of Marina Bay Sands Hotel, the sight and scent of 10,000 fresh roses set against breathtaking 360-degree views would redefine them. The gastronomic adventure, an 18-course Modern Asian degustation menu, would then be served during sunset.
While in complete privacy (the sanctuary will be reserved in their honor), the culinary voyage includes Fresh Belon Oyster with Champagne foam, Almas Caviar, Jamón Ibérico, Gewürztraminer-Poached Foie Gras, Veal Liver, Lamb Sweetbread, Bresse Poulet Consommé, Striped Seabass, Air-Flown Alaska Wild Salmon, Verjus Sorbet, Slow Cooked Pigeon, Glenvale Pork Loin and Apple-Wood Grilled Mishima Sirloin. Among the planet’s most extraordinary tipples, alongside 44 and 55 year-old vintage wines, are paired with the spectacular menu; 1988 Salon ‘S’ champagne, 2008 Domaine Leflaive Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru, 1996 Domaine de la RomaneeConti, Romanee-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru, 1961 Chateau Haut-Brion and 1972 Oremus Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos.
During the candle-lit affair (set both indoors and al fresco style), the guests shall dine with diamond-studded chopsticks (engraved with their names), while being seated luxuriously in custom-made designer furniture. The grand armchairs, fabricated by The Plush and configured to the diners’ home and personality, would eventually make their way to the couple’s residence.
Complementing the ambience is not only the live band; WORLD OF DIAMONDS Group has introduced an unforgettable star-studded recognition to the evening. The Jane Seymour, a beyond rare 2.08 carat Fancy Vivid Blue diamond ring, would be presented in a delectable savory. The high jewelry masterpiece, created to celebrate the accomplishments of illustrious A-lister Jane Seymour, OBE, is encrusted with a cushion-cut sparkler that flaunts a mesmerizing blue hue. Seymour had worn and personally endorsed The Jane Seymour during a lavish dinner celebration at CÉ LA VI Singapore in April this year, and while the creation is in no hurry to be sold, it is the world’s only celebrity ring that isn’t pre-owned.
To mark the exhilarating moment when the ring finally graces the divine one at midnight, Louis XIII de Rémy Martin cognac would be served, complete with an extravagant fireworks display to the envy of the universe. “At CÉ LA VI, we live to create unique experiences that stimulate the senses, elevate the spirit, amplify passion and fuel the pursuit of pleasure. This ($2,000,000 dining experience) done conjointly with our esteemed partner, WORLD OF DIAMONDS Group, is the zenith of all experiences”, stated Mr David Sarner, CEO of CÉ LA VI Singapore. The conglomerates behind this offering are willing to extend the hospitality for a night’s stay, if necessary. After all, c'est la vie.
Even if you accept the eye-watering price tag however, there is a prerequisite. The enchanting experience will only be sold to a qualified individual – at the discretion of both WORLD OF DIAMONDS Group and CÉ LA VI.
