Kensington Hotel asks customers, ‘Are you feeling lucky?’

Kensington Hotel Saipan is giving local residents a very generous discount this month with the launch of its Lucky March promotion. 

And judging by the dohkatsu ramen at Loria International Buffet, diners are definitely having the most bang for their buck as the creamy and savory thick Japanese noodle dish as well as their thin-crust pizza, roasted striploin steak, generous salad manger, exquisite smoked salmon and sushi, and inviting desserts are already worth the price of admission. 

Under the deal, the San Roque hotel is offering 30% off on weekdays (Monday-Thursday) and 20% off on weekends (Friday-Sunday) at its three main outlets—Loria International Buffet, East Moon Asian Buffet, and Ocean Grill Outdoor BBQ.

That means the buffet at Loria International Buffet and East Moon Asian Buffet will only set you back $43.40 for adults and $21.70 for children, while the prices for a meal at Ocean Grill Outdoor BBQ is just $48.30 for adults and $24.20 for children on weekdays.

It goes up slightly on the weekends at $49.60 and $24.80 for the two former restaurants and $55.20 and $27.60 for Kensington’s special barbecue setup.

“The theme we set for this month is Lucky March. We simply hope that there are moments when people feel that they are in luck. That’s why we took it one step further and gave a bigger discount at our main three outlets,” said E-Land Group Social Responsibility manager Lindsey Ahn.

This works out perfectly as customers can sample Asian and continental cuisine at Loria International Buffet one day and then try delectable gourmet Chinese fare at East Moon Asian Buffet the next. And if you want the outdoors while munching on Saipan’s favorite food—barbecue—then the Ocean Grill Outdoor BBQ might just be for you.

“They can enjoy our dinner buffet a great deal as they now can expect a nice dining experience at a better price. Each outlet offers not only different dishes, but also different settings and ambience. We want more people to try that. We are confident that the quality of our food will exceed their expectations as our high standards are quite known to the public by now,” said Ahn.

Asked what makes Kensington Hotel a foodies’ delight, she said the  first thing that comes to mind is their dessert line.

“Our dessert is way beyond what you expect for after-meal sweets as our tiramisu, chocolate cake,  lemon meringue cake, and fig fresh cream cake are simply the best. At Loria, there’s also a popular meme in K-Pop saying, ‘we don’t know what you like, so we have it all.’ For East Moon, I would say, we currently don’t have much of a Chinese cuisine-inspired buffet on Saipan so East Moon fills the niche and our recently hired chef is working hard to perfect the taste of each Chinese dish. Ocean Grill has its own unique vibe—good food, good evening breeze, and good music mix with good chemistry. Our band is also good at interacting with the audience,” said Ahn.

And Kensington Hotel will not limit the discount promotion at its outlets to March, as it will run until April 30.

“If your special day or special date is marked in the calendar of March or April, then you’re lucky! Also, we often hear from our local guests that Kensington is too far. We wanted to give them more reasons to visit us during weekdays, so we’re giving bigger discounts during weekdays,” she added.
