The snow is falling in Europe, and Christmas is just around the corner. It is a Christmas that is different from how we have known it before. Nevertheless, the Christmas decorations are hung around the world, and the Christmas trees are decorated. Like every year, it will be a contemplative family celebration – just a little different.
For all those who have not yet decided what to do for Christmas, we provide ideas. There are many advantages to spending Christmas in a hotel. In particular, a change of location is good for everyone, and there is no need to decorate or prepare. Coming into a hotel suite and finding a fine, freshly baked Christmas bakery and a decorated Christmas tree has its charm. Many families have been using this option for years and spend the Christmas days in a hotel – no stress and a carefree time in a romantic place.
Hotels around the world offer different experiences for Christmas. Whether in the city or out in the country, the hotels spare no expense or effort to give their guests an extraordinary Christmas party. We introduce you to 5 hotels, which will make your Christmas an unforgettable experience in 2020.
Claridges London has been one of the most famous luxury hotels in London since 1856. As soon as you step into the lobby, you notice the royal style and the tastefully designed black and white marbled floor. For the Christmas season, the hotel takes you back to the 1920s and transforms the lobby into a white dream landscape. The focus is the Christmas tree laid in frost. Traditional afternoon tea is planned for Christmas Day and a fine Christmas dinner for the evening.
The Hotel Bristol in Paris has been welcoming its guests since 1925. The hotel combines history, tradition, and an incomparable standard of service. As every year, the hotel has come up with a lot for the Christmas season. The hotel’s facade will be adorned with fairy lights, and a multitude of Christmas trees will soon adorn the lobby. Chef Eric Frechon has again come up with special menus for this Christmas. The “Epicerie” pop-up boutique, specially arranged for Christmas, offers Christmas delicacies – the Mamorkuchen deserves a special mention.
Carlton St. Moritz
Christmas is also celebrated appropriately in the Swiss mountains in St. Moritz. The Carlton Hotel in St. Moritz has organized its Christmas program for the children. At 5 p.m., Santa Claus is expected to tell stories and hand presents to the young generation in the fireplace room. Afterward, a festive 5-course menu awaits the guests in the Romanoff restaurant. At the end of the evening, you can still listen to Christmas carols by the fireplace while looking out over the snowy winter landscape of St. Moritz.
The Ritz Carlton Bacara
Located on the Pacific Ocean and just 2 hours from Los Angeles is the Ritz Carlton Bacara. From the hotel complex, you have a breathtaking sea view. At Christmas, the hotel is ideal for families. Numerous activities are offered for Christmas, such as drawing candles, building gingerbread houses, decorating Christmas cards, or decorating Christmas wreaths. A special Christmas menu is also offered with contemplative live music.
Peninsula Hotels worldwide
For the Asian hotel chain Peninsula, it is essential to bring families together and give them festive days. Therefore, the Christmas traditions will bake with large Christmas trees, decorations, and gingerbread. Special Christmas menus are offered, and the well-known afternoon tea has a Christmas motto. For the young guests, Peninsula has come up with the “Journey of the Red Robin.” A book that shows the various Christmas traditions and reflects the values ??of peace and togetherness. For this reason, the hotels donate the proceeds from Christmas to local organizations that support young people in need.
We wish you a Merry Christmas
The time will soon come, and we will all sing Christmas carols like every year, whether in a hotel or at home. The year 2020 will be remembered for a long time for all of us, and let’s hope that this Christmas and the turn of the year mean the start of normalcy again.
