The Diwali with Marriott Bonvoy hamper is a strikingly gorgeous keepsake holding a decadent array of curated sweets and assorted nuts dressed in a rich blend of spices. Fusing the traditional with a hint of contemporary are delights such as the Gulab Peda (an interesting twist to the traditional ‘peda’, specially handcrafted by blending milk and the Kerela cardamom enveloped beautifully in dehydrated wild rose petals and topped with a 24-carat gold foiling). Meanwhile, Cokhoya, (a stuffed delicacy with almond paste infused with desiccated coconut and cocoa, handmade and generously garnished with silver leaves) is another sweet indulgence that comes with the goodness of the delicate Pista Mista ( dressed in a rich pistachio paste, Kashmiri saffron, rose petal jam and organic forest honey ) to name a few of the signature delectables.
