Treasure hunt and buffet at InterContinental’s garden

Parents who buy the $36 Easter buffet at Hotel InterContinental this Sunday can bring along their children under-12 for a free family treasure hunt from 11am to 3pm.

According to InterContinental’s Marketing Communications Manager Jenny Tchen, parents and children are being asked to gather at InterContinental’s garden for prizes and surprises for every guest including rabbit sculptures and creative painting activities.

“Our team has been working hard to brainstorm and launch the idea of how to create a dynamic moment for  children this year,” Tchen said. “All family members including parents will enjoy our special brunch.”

The Hotel’s Deli Shop’s pastry team has prepared a range of Easter treats including chocolate eggs, bunnies, baskets and other items.

“It is interesting to see that Cambodians have started buying our Easter eggs already even though Easter does hold as much meaning for Cambodians,” Tchen said.

Tchen, who has a Tahitian father and a Chinese mother, came out of a hotel management school called Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne in Switzerland in 2004, has formerly worked in Singapore and Tahiti for brand names such as Marriott.
