Wizards and Muggles, still awaiting your letter from Hogwarts to arrive in the post? Get cloaked and have your wands ready. You don’t need one to follow the spiders into the mysterious world of sorcery at the 137 Pillars House Chiang Mai this April.
On Easter Sunday, the award-winning luxury boutique hotel is hosting an enchanting Harry Potter High Tea Experience in celebration of everyone’s favourite wizard. Delicious food, colourful potions and Potter-esque activities promise to make this immersive afternoon tea experience a feast for all senses. The colonial teak house, dating back to the 1800s and once the headquarters of the Borneo Trading Company, will be decked out in the colours and banners of the four houses – Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff. Flowing fabric hanging from the ceiling with floating candles attached and bird cages with owls in them complete the look.
Guests can participate in a number of outdoor activities such as the hotel’s own version of Quidditch. Other activities include Hedwig Owl Pinata, and “Make Your Own Wand and Bath Bomb Snitch” workshops. Also inspired by the story of the young wizard, the traditional Easter Egg Hunt is themed around a Dragon’s Egg, with the winner of the hunt receiving a special prize.
In a feast that even Dumbledore would be proud, the magical afternoon includes a banquet of savoury and sweet treats including freshly baked fruit scones, owl cupcakes, sorting hat toffies and hot cross buns.
Guests are encouraged to dress up, so dig out your best robes and make your way to 137 Pillars House where all the magic is happening on Sunday 21 April from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. The School of Magic High Tea is priced at THB 700++ for adults and THB 350++ for children 4-10 years; children below 4 are free.[pro_ad_display_adzone id="915575"]
