From the 4th until the 21st of December, Habtoor Palace’s enchanting Festive Garden will be open daily from 3pm until midnight, to ensure visitors are able to celebrate the Christmas season in true palatial fashion. Located in the property’s beautiful Versailles Gardens, the space will resemble a winter wonderland, providing fun festivities for all the family.
The garden will comprise of dazzling decorations, holiday carols and fun rides for the little ones. Rides include a chu chu train, mini golf, merry go round, gingerbread house maknig and everyone’s favorite – a dedicated Snow Fight zone! Every day, at 6pm sharp, a jolly Santa will arrive, and head straight to his grotto, where all the little ones can meet up. The evening continues with a live band playing seasonal classics from 7pm onwards, ensuring all guests are in the festive spirit. To add on to the winter cheer, there will be a variety of kiosks and food stalls, serving up a delicious Yuletide of traditional delights alongside a selection of Christmas beverage favourites. Drinks start from AED 25, while festive food favorites start from AED 30 only.
However, the focus of the festive garden remains on the hotel’s gigantic, decorated Christmas tree, situated right outside the hotel, bringing a jovial warmth to all guests and even those driving along Sheikh Zayed Road. On the 4th of December, kickstarting with a local school choir at 6pm, families can experience an evening of joy and wonder as Habtoor Palace lights up the skies with their beautiful tree lighting ceremony. Complete with stunning snowfalls, carol singing and more, this is the most magical way to start the most wonderful time of the year.
Entry to the Festive Garden will be complimentary and pets will also be allowed with presence of their owners, to make sure the whole family is involved.
