How will hotels be celebrating Christmas this year?

Santa Claus doesn't just visit homes – hotels are on his delivery route too, and this year he'll be making an appearance at many of them around the world.

Santa Claus doesn’t just visit homes – hotels are on his delivery route too, and this year he’ll be making an appearance at many of them around the world.

So let’s take a look at eight different hotels are doing – from Australia to Japan to Bali – to celebrate this festive season and ensure some Christmas joy!


1. Sheraton on the Park, Sydney


Sydney’s luxurious five-star hotel overlooking Hyde Park is celebrating the silly season with a host of Christmas-themed packages and festive offers throughout the hotel. With a Christmas accommodation package, festive spa experience, enticing seasonal food and drink options and a mini Christmas market selling tasty Christmas treats, the hotel is embracing the festive fever with the smell of gingerbread in the air.


2. Anantara Siam, Bangkok


A magnificent Christmas tree in the lobby will be lit to welcome guests at Anantara Siam, Bangkok. The hotel will be offering a Christmas feast with a range of brunches, lunches, and dinners with traditional Christmas dishes, fresh seafood, and lots of free-flowing bubbles and a jazz trio of carol singers.

They are also offering a Christmas shopping experience with the Shopping Guru, a private chauffeur-driven limousine which whisks guests from their hotel entrance straight to their shopping destination, and offers an insider’s guide to shopping in Bangkok.


3. Best Western Plus Brooklands of Mornington


Over 120 people are expected to attend the Christmas lunch at the 4-star Best Western Plus Brooklands of Mornington. The hotel will be providing great catering and banqueting options in the region for various Christmas events. The hotel’s restaurant Eighteen78 is the new 40-seat intimate dining space open daily for breakfast and Monday to Saturday for dinner.


4. Kasara Niseko Village Townhouses, Japan


Fancy a white Christmas getaway? Situated at the base of Mount Niseko Annupuri, Kasara Niseko Village Townhouse occupies a unique position at the heart of Niseko Village with ski runs and lifts a mere heartbeat away. The rooms are an ode to Japan’s heritage townhouses that were inhabited by craftsmen and wealthy merchants toward the end of the Edo period.

Christmas in Niseko Village has something for everyone, especially families this Christmas Eve with activities including a photo session with Santa’s reindeer, stunning firework display and visit from Santa Clause himself!


5. The Fairmont Resort, Blue Mountains


If an escape to the mountains is what’s in the stocking this year, the The Fairmont Resort in the Blue Mountains will provide. A member of the MGallery Collection offering panoramic views over the picturesque Jamison Valley, the hotel will be putting on an indulgent Christmas lunch buffet that includes live entertainment and even a visit from Santa!


6. W Retreat & Spa Bali – Seminyak, Bali


In true W style, guests can expect a season of incredible dining and party experiences at W Retreat & Spa Bali – Seminyak this Christmas. On Christmas day, visitors can indulge in a super brunch at FIRE featuring delicious salads, soups, chilled seafood, prime meat and hot dishes from the East & West.

The interactive chefs will be out and about to carve, stir, and whip up whatever guests are craving. Dinner will then be served at STARFISH BLOO with endless options of sushi & oysters, dim sum, BBQ lobster, salmon and carvings of ham or turkey with all the accompaniments and then some.


7. Hyatt Regency, Perth


It certainly feels like Christmas at Hyatt Regency Perth. Stepping into the lobby, guests are welcomed by the twinkling of lights hanging from the impressive atrium, a magnificent golden Christmas tree and the aroma of freshly baked festive treats from the hotel’s premier restaurant, Cafe. Guests dining at Cafe can embrace the festive season by indulging in the array of Christmas dishes from turkey and ham to a selection of desserts.


8. Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp, Chiang Rai


If you’re in the mood for a tropical twist to Christmas, head on up to the Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp in Chiang Rai. Celebrations will start on Christmas Eve with a drum parade up to the hilltop where cocktails will be served, and entertainment by local musicians and hill tribe dancing.
