The moon is the brightest during the Mid-Autumn festival. The family gathering under the full moon is made more starry with this exclusive mooncake gift box. Grand Hyatt Macau is renowned for its pastry offerings and this year’s mooncake gift box will not let you down.

The auspicious motifs on the box surface are embellished with luster beads, lightened up with surrounding LED lights. The innovation does not stop on the outside. The cakes come in three different flavors of chocolate fondant, salted egg custard and taro with lotus paste.

Featuring time-honoured traditional homemade flavours inside the box, with graphics taken from a 19th-century painting of Macau’s historic A-Ma Temple by French painter Auguste Borget, Mandarin Oriental Macau’s mooncake gift box is truly a piece of artwork.
