Keeping its standards on a consistent high, Goodwood Park Hotel in Singapore never fails to bring smiles to every occasion every year. Once again, Goodwood Park Hotel spreads the Christmas cheer this year with an impressive range of sweet and savoury festive delights.
Goodwood Park Hotel in Singapore is especially renowned for their irresistible array of handcrafted sweet treats. Think: mouth-watering durian creations appropriate for any occasion. This Mid-Autumn Festival, expect nothing less than awe-inspiring. The crowd-winning all-time favourite Premium Durian Snowskin Combo is joined by new creations, setting the stage for uphill excitement.
Tropical Royals – limited edition ($45 per box of 2 pieces)
Contained in sophisticated packaging are two gems: the Tropical Royals, featuring the king of fruits, durian, and the mammoth tree-borne fruit, jackfruit, for the first time in baked mooncake history. One of pure D24 durian pulp blended with white lotus seed paste, and another of juicy jackfruit bits adding texture to the white lotus seed paste. They are available in very limited quantities per day, so it’s best to order in advance.
Another new highlight this year is the Pineapple, Lemongrass and Dark Cherry Snowskin Mooncake, enthralling mooncake enthusiasts with gorgeous watercolour-inspired swashes of vibrant green and yellow. The pineapple puree is delicately infused with lemongrass, with a macerated dark cherry sitting snugly in the middle.

Singapore’s Goodwood Park Hotel’s biggest Durian Fiesta ever is happening from 16 March to 2 Auguest 2015, starring six new creations adding to the line-up of durian-centric goodies, twice as many varieties as usual. Since its introduction in 1983, this annual fair has been winning the crowds with D24 and Mao Shan Wang durians’ luxuriously creamy flesh and sweet aroma.
Goodwood Park Hotel has always been scoring well in the cake-pastry department, especially when the component of durian comes into play. Think of perennial favourites like Durian Puff, Durian Mousse Cake, Durian mooncakes (during mid-autumn festival), and the festive favourite Goodwood D24 Durian Christmas Log Cake ($64 for 1kg).
