Whether it’s a feasting fiesta at aqua nueva, or contemporary Japanese dining at aqua kyoto, dinner tickets at both restaurants are £150 apiece. In addition to a glass of Champagne on arrival and live music throughout, aqua is fortunate to boast terraces high above Regent Street where you can watch the fireworks at midnight.

Post-dinner, there will be drinks and dancing to music until late at Ziggy's cocktail bar. Ensuring your stay is as relaxing as possible, the package includes a late check-out to allow a New Year’s Day lie-in and a long lazy breakfast.

The special tasting menu is filled with mouth-watering dishes that have caught our eye, with the likes of clams with spicy Calabrian sausage and parsley, rib-eye steak with snail butter, umami fries and truffle béarnaise, and to end on a sweet note, a chocolate ganache with feuilletine crunch, passionfruit and grand marnier ice cream. To top it off we recommend the wine pairing.
