On Saturday, January 14th, we had the pleasure of gifting Philip and Sharon Stokes – the lucky winners of Whilo’s exclusive weekend escape in partnership with Portsea Polo and The Australian. In the spirit of giving and receiving (it’s what we do best), here’s a glimpse into their luxurious getaway tailored to Alfa Romeo’s finest event of the year …
Kicking off the ultimate Portsea Polo weekend, the Stokes’ were flown with Virgin Airlines from Sydney to Melbourne, where they were greeted with a bottle of Pommery Champagne after checking into designer hotel, QT Melbourne. From there, they were whisked away by helicopter to the Portsea Polo event, thanks to Microflite, assuring they arrived at the polo in style – avoiding traffic and soaring high above Victoria’s stunning Mornington Peninsula coastline.
On arrival, the Stokes’ were welcomed at the invitation-only, Polo Club Point Nepean Marquee – the perfect spot to watch the game and be treated to an afternoon of fine fare, including a premium bar flowing with (even more) Pommery Champagne.
At the end of the day, the private Microflite helicopter transferred our winners back to QT Melbourne to enjoy dinner at the hotel’s signature restaurant, Pascale Bar & Grill, and an overnight stay in the comfort of a Deluxe King room. And, finally, before departing the next day, they relaxed with cocktails on The Rooftop at QT overlooking Melbourne’s city skyline.
“Thank you so much for your part in providing us with a wonderful experience at the Polo. We loved it. Everything went smoothly – the plane flights, the helicopter flights, the Marquee with all the food and champers – what a treat! The QT Melbourne Hotel, food, service, and limo ride (both ways) all went so well. Thanks to you and the Whilo team for making it all possible.”
