Starbuck' Siren's Island Getaway!


Land Ho!

Shouted the sailor. Hearing that just gave me the excitement I needed to finally kick off my summer. The Metro Manila heat index has been hitting the 40.ºC mark lately and the guests on board our ship just can't wait to visit Starbucks' Siren's Island.

We arrived last April 6 for a mini vacation at the Island and got treated to a new set of beverages that taste like a short, sweet, sip of summer. 
What's cool about the Island are the carnival-themed activities that the guests get to enjoy. There was a grand Starbucks Ship welcoming deck - a wooden dock that marked the entryway to the sweetest destination. Fusing the elements of an island getaway and a summer pier carnival, the Siren’s Island brought the best of summer experiences in one spot. 
I also came across a map so that I would be able to venture into the different stations that the Island has prepared. Got welcomed by jugglers, island magicians & stilt walkers, the tall, Dark Caramel Mountain with its rich caramel lava welcomed us right at the center. Fortunes were uncovered at the Triple Mocha Room which was designed in true carnival fashion. There were also plenty of games to play at the booths just like berry-picking at the Mixed Berries Forest and the classic ring toss game at the Red Velvet Magic Shack. 
Dressed up like a carnival knick-knack store, there was also the Siren’s Souvenir Shop where guests got to grab Starbucks merchandise. The funfair was complete with a food cart that served up Starbucks drinks and snacks. 
The guests of Starbucks' Siren Island had a good time enjoying the latest Starbucks’ summer offerings. This sure is one of the many ways to have more fun and carefree summer.

Oh going back to the beverages, the new Starbucks core drinks, Triple Mocha Frappuccino® is loaded with Dark Mocha Sauce layered between cold-brew infused whipped cream, white chocolate, and dark caramel. Take away the Dark Mocha Sauce and add some rich and buttery Dark Caramel Sauce and the drink transforms into the delicious Dark Caramel Coffee Frappuccino®. Another drink added to the regular menu is the Red Velvet Cake Cream Frappuccino®, a confectionery-inspired blend of chocolaty chips, mocha sauce, raspberry and vanilla syrup, topped with whipped cream will be available starting April 9.

For those who want to feel the tropical vibes, Starbucks also offers a limited-time beverage just for the season of sun – the Mixed Berry Frappuccino® with Pomegranate Pearls. The smooth and fruity beverage is made with mixed berry sauce blended with velvety milk, topped with cream to balance its tart berry flavor. 

Starbucks also offers a tropical treat in the form of fresh coffee beans with the new Starbucks® Kopelani Blend – a blend that brings the flavors of Hawaii into each cup. At the heart of this summer creation is the Hawaiian Ka’u coffee, combined with East African and Latin American beans which enhances the nutty notes and caramelly sweetness, for which Ka’u coffee is known for. 
Carry with you the perfect complement for the balmy weather - the Botanical card, a Starbucks Card which features island scenes and tropical plants, available for an initial activation amount of Php300. Another fun and cute design is the new Popsicle card, also available for an initial activation of Php300. 

There will also be new Starbucks merchandise to help you feel summer-ready wherever you go. The ‘A Day in The Island’ collection transports customers straight to the beach with its gradient designs depicting island scenes from sunrise to sunset and tropical plants. With the sun brightly shining this time of year, the ‘Gold’ collection also perfectly captures the glow and shimmer of the season with its golden tumblers in new and classic shapes. 
The Siren’s Island is just the first of many more fun and carefree summer moments that customers can share with Starbucks. Starbucks’ doors are always open, calling everyone to come into a getaway and sip a quick summer escape!
