Movenpick drops by The Holiday Place bearing Christmas gifts

Two representatives from Movenpick Hotels and Resorts made it to The Holiday Place's North London headquarters yesterday to not only presents us with a lovely Christmas gift in the form of a seasonal hamper, but also to spread festive cheer with news of their luxury Middle Eastern resorts and Southeast Asian hotels.

More specifically we learnt more about their fine selection of UAE properties in Dubai, some of which recently received prestigious accolades at the Haute Grandeur Global Hotel Awards, and of their brand new "Swissmass" promotion in Asia with warm Christmas holiday options in Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Telling us about it all were Movenpick Hotels and Resorts' Senior Vice President Commercial, Paul Mulcahy and International Account Director for the UK and Ireland, Anthony Vale, who kindly gave us an overview on some of the fantastic properties managed by the Movenpick group while updating us on some seasonal offers and new activities.

We learnt, for example, that the Movenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach earned the title of "Best Honeymoon Hotel in the United Arab Emirates" at the 2016 edition of the Haute Grandeur Global awards, celebrated last 31st October in Dubai. These awards recognise the finest in hospitality excellence on a global scale, in continental, regional and country categories. The method for deciding the winners consists of an unbiased method incorporating guests' feedback.

On another note, we were introduced to Movenpick's latest Sun, Sea and "Swissmas" promotion across their Southeast Asian properties. As part of this newly introduced concept, guests will enjoy a variety of seasonal specials, from Father Christmas visits to traditional feasts, exquisitely decorated Christmas trees with a twist of Swiss elegance and plenty of live entertainment for young and old.

The idea is to give guests a warm Christmas to remember, with a variety of festive activities tailored to the whole family.

Participating hotels include the Movenpick Resort and Spa Karon Beach Phuket in Thailand, offering a Swissmas Eve buffet dinner with an array of traditional dishes, free-flowing drinks to get parents in a jolly mood, carol-singing and a range of special activities for the youngest in the family.

Also part of the Swissmas action are the Movenpick Hotel Hanoi in Vietnam, which is hosting a tree-lighting ceremony on 2nd December with a giant gingerbread house on display, and the Movenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu in the Philippines, where kids will be making Santa stockings at the kids club and on Christmas Eve, Santa Claus will drop by for a visit.

Across all three Movenpick resorts, mulled wine will be freely flowing on Christmas dinner and plenty of live entertainment, including carol-singing action is to be expected on Christmas Day. Now, that certainly makes for a Christmas holiday to remember! Thank you Movenpick for visiting us at The Holiday Place and filling us with Christmas cheer, we welcome you back again anytime!
