If you’re looking for all your Christmas festivities on a plate (literally and metaphorically) then look no further than Lapita Hotel in Dubai Parks and Resorts for a magical holiday season to remember.

The hotel is nestled in the heart of Dubai Parks & Resorts, the home of Motiongate and Legoland. The Polynesian-themed hotel is a hidden gem, offering two pools, a lazy river, and direct access to all the nearby theme parks and Outlet Village. A majestic haven where unforgettable memories are made, Lapita promises to transport you to a tropical island, sprinkled with the magic of Polynesia and the spirit of ‘aloha’.

And there’s no better time to try out this amazing resort than during the festive season. The fun begins with a wonderful tree lighting ceremony on Friday 9th December at 6pm, where guests can watch as the beautiful tree is lit up with hundreds of tiny lights. Carols will be playing as you sip on indulgent hot chocolate and festive cookies. Well, it is Christmas after all.

For those families and friends wishing to fully immerse themselves in a magical festive experience, you can stay in one of their beautifully decorated Christmas Villas (with none other than roller coaster views). They’re available for a minimum of two nights from 24th December until 26th December. This full board staycation also includes Christmas Brunch and Christmas Eve Dinner, a personal villa visit from Santa, and of course Q-Fast tickets that will allow you to jump the queues at Motiongate, Bollywood, and Legoland. Prices for the villa for 2 nights for 8 people starts at AED 6,800++ on full board basis.

Christmas Eve is one of the most magical nights of the year and, rest assured, Lapita will deliver on every festive level. You will start your evening with a delicious buffet at Kalea Restaurant while the Lapita Choir sings in the background and then there is an appearance from the big man in red! Just to get the kids over-excited – they really won’t want to go to bed! Sorry, mum and dad! Prices start from AED 195 per adult for soft beverages and AED 95 for children from 6 to 12 years old, while 5 and under join for free. Alcohol is charged on a per consumption basis.

On Christmas Day you’ll need to don your Christmas jumpers as there’ll be a competition to find out who is wearing the ugliest sweater. You’ll be treated to a festive buffet; roasted turkey with all the trimmings, fresh oysters, Christmas stollen, panettone, and mince pie are all on the cards. The Lapita Choir will serenade you with a myriad of marvelous Christmas Carols and live music. And the little ones haven’t been forgotten about, they will have lots of fun with special kid’s activities and a visit from Santa. Prices start from AED 350 per adult for the soft package, AED 450 per adult for a house package, and AED 175 per child from 6 to 12 years old, while 5 and under join for free.

Or why not bid farewell to 2022 and ring in the New Year at Lapita’s Ari Gardens? It will be a magical evening with an outside buffet, live music, and fireworks that every member of the family will love. It’s memory-making right there. Prices start from AED 495 per adult for soft beverages, AED 645 per adult for house beverages, and AED 245 for children from 6 to 12 years old, while 5 and under join for free.
