Is it just us or did Easter sneak up on you too? With visions of Cadbury eggs, pastel color schemes and Champagne brunches filling our minds, it may have come early, but we’re definitely ready to celebrate. Across the globe, hotels are commemorating the holiday with plenty of activities for the little ones and festive dining options on Sunday. But since there should never be an age limit on having fun, we discovered properties that are hosting adult Easter egg hunts with grown-up worthy surprises inside. Below are seven hotels that are giving away prizes such as one-night stays, spa treatments and sunset cocktail cruises for lucky winners.

Capella Singapore

Capella Singapore on Sentosa Island is one of our favorite properties. For Easter, they are serving brunch by guest chef Fabien Pairon as well as hosting an egg hunt to discover 1,000 hidden eggs. Inside special ones, guests will find one of three grand prizes: a voucher for a one-night stay in a One-Bedroom Garden Villa, dinner for two at Cassia fine dining restaurant, and a 60-minute spa gift certificate at the five-star facility.

But if you’re not one of the lucky three to find those eggs, there are a few other prizes that are just as exciting. One winner will receive a voucher for Havana Nights at Bob’s Bar, a weekly Cuban barbeque with live music and handcrafted fresh-pressed Mojitos. Or they may find the Chocolate and Tea Experience at The Knolls inside their egg. The affair allows guests to sip on teas from gourmet purveyor Gryphon Tea Company while enjoying international desserts and Valrhona chocolates. Easter Brunch starts at 12:30 on Sunday and rates for adults start at around USD $191 per person and $57 per child; reservations are required.

Le Bristol Paris

If you’re spending the holiday in Paris, Le Bristol is treating guests to an Easter egg hunt on the hotel’s French lawn on Sunday, March 27. Both children and adults can participate in the event, but we have a feeling you won’t want to leave it up to the kids to find these prizes. One winner will win a two-night stay at the newly-renovated Lanesborough in London or the Palais Namaskar in Marrakech. However, if you end up prize-less, you’ll still get to enjoy the fruits of your labor: chocolate eggs made by in-house pastry chef Laurent Jeannin.
