Festive Season at The Caravelle Hotel

Caravelle Hotel is saving the best for last in 2013. The iconic hotel in downtown Saigon is bringing the year-end to life with a series of heartwarming musical performances, cheerful parties and sumptuous banquets that will unite family and friends in the holiday spirit.

The celebrations begin with the official tree lighting ceremony at the hotel on December 6. Early reservation to all of the hotel’s Christmas and New Year events will be on offer at a Festive Ticket Counter in the Caravelle Lobby. At the height of the festive season, from December 20 to 25, the hotel will echo with the strains of Christmas Carols, performed by the children of the Christina Noble Foundation and members of the Caravelle staff.

The Lobby Lounge will be at the centre of the hotel’s Christmas activity, with a beautifully decorated tree taking pride of place in the entranceway. Treat your senses to the familiar fragrance and flavors of the season with Caravelle’s Christmas Teas. Drop in at the Lobby Lounge any time from noon to 5pm, December 7 to 23, for a traditional English Afternoon Tea, with favorite sweet and savory bites served on a three-tiered tray accompanied by your choice of premium loose-leaf tea and a flute of Veuve Clicquot Champagne.

The Caravelle’s popular buffet restaurant Nineteen is leading the way in Christmas and New Year, with an extraordinary line-up of culinary treats to cater to every palate. A surprise visit from Santa Claus with gifts for good children, nostalgic Christmas carols and live music from a jazz quartet are some of the highlights of Nineteen’s elaborate festive buffets, which all include unlimited free flow of fine wines and cocktails, as well as a complimentary flute of Veuve Clicquot Champagne.

The Caravelle’s culinary team and events planners will be on hand to assist with private parties at the hotel. Groups looking for a location for their Christmas parties can make use of the Caravelle’s atmospheric venues, sublime cuisine and top-notch service with packages beginning at VND 970,000++ per person.

Three floors above the leafy sidewalks of Lam Son Square, Reflections Restaurant will lay out its best white linen, polished silverware and gleaming wine glasses for an elegant Christmas and New Year’s in the heart of Saigon. Diners can indulge with Chef Watson’s gourmet creations and a complimentary flute of Veuve Clicquot Champagne, overlooking the lights of the Opera House and Lam Son Square, while relaxing to music by a live jazz quartet.

High above the bustling streets of the city centre, Saigon Saigon Bar, one of the most iconic bars, is planning a joyful get-together on Christmas Eve and a spirited exit to 2013 on December 31. From the shores of Cuba, Corazon Latino’s live performance will get heartbeats pumping and feet moving, as Saigon Saigon Bar’s award-winning bartenders pour a spectacular range of wines, beers and spirits, as well as newly created cocktails such as Ginger Mango and Ginger Basil Margarita. A themed ‘Tropicana’ party will heat up the dance floor as the party counts down to 2014.
