The shop will be decked out with Christmas decor for the first time, filled with vouchers for accommodation packages, food and beverages, and spa, as well as the infamous Cody and Coco red panada plush toys and scented candles. With the option of purchasing online to ‘click and collect,’ Cordis also offer a gift-wrapping station for those wanting to experience the Christmas magic in-store.
Chandelier Lounge High Tea by TWG
Offering a selection of premium tea time treats, High Tea by Cordis with TWG is an exclusive opportunity to revel in festive décor and seasonal savoury and sweet nibbles.
