Our romantic dinner at The Peacock Garden at Bohol

Ahhhh, romance! Since Valentine's Day is just a couple of sleeps away (that's how my kids count the days, by counting their "sleeps"), I'm brought back to the last romantic dinner Vince and I had. And it happened eight months ago!

I knoooooow. With three little kids who want us to eat dinner with them, brush their teeth, tell them bedtime stories, and tuck them in bed, anything romantic doesn't happen after 6pm! So thank you so much to The Peacock Garden at Bohol for preparing such a lovely dinner for us.
i heart u

The Peacock Garden has a special package called the Love Package (but of course) which include the following:
  • Accommodation for two (2) nights
  • Complimentary upgrade to the Premier Room
  • Daily a la carte breakfast at Old Heidelberg for two (2)
  • Romantic four-course dinner at Old Heidelberg
  • 90-minutes body massage
  • Whole-day countryside tour with lunch at Loboc River
  • Return airport/seaport transfers

Vince and I had that romantic dinner and it was amazing. AMAZING! And you already know how we feel about the food served oh so lovingly at The Old Heidelberg. (Click here for that story)

Since we had the kids with us, The Peacock Garden very kindly offered their nannies to watch over the kids. Yes, there are childminders! You just have to set an appointment with them a few hours beforehand. Then they arrive at your room in crisp uniforms, clean, fresh, and armed with books and toys!

With the kids in good hands, Vince and I sat down to this magnificent feast!
