We all know that The Murray knows how to keep its guests merry, especially during the festive season. The five-star gem has prepared a series of festivities to ensure the Merry Murray Christmas will be a wondrous affair. You can always check out its full list of festive offerings for more, but here’s a little taste of what to expect this winter.
The Murray Christmas Market & Santa’s Grotto
For over three days, from Friday, 15 December to Sunday, 17 December, the Cotton Tree Terrace will be transformed into a true shopper’s paradise. Whether you’re looking to pick up festive decorations, gourmet goodies, handmade crafts or customised jewellery, you’ll find everything you need to tick off your shopping list. You’ll be delighted to find a handful of favourite local brands present such as Antonia Y. Jewelery, Jardin Europeen, The Hubble Studio, Clingo Florist, Kaas Atelier and more. And you can also expect to see Old Saint Nick back at Santa’s Grotto for photographs this December up until Boxing Day (head here to book your visit).
Five Spice Symphony Spa Package
Between decorating for the holidays, last-minute gift shopping and organising Christmas dinner, you deserve a break. Unwind with the Festive Spice Symphony package ($1,400 for 60 minutes or $1,650 for 90 minutes) which includes a relaxing full body massage infused with ginger, orange and black pepper, and if that isn’t tempting enough, a wrap of Belgium hot chocolate with marshmallows.
Festive Afternoon Tea Buffets, Brunch & Dinner Celebrations
What’s Christmas without a festive feast or two? Indulge in the Murray Festive Afternoon Tea at Garden Lounge ($788 for two persons) featuring traditional treats, homemade pastries and signature artisanal Niccolo coffee, or head to Popinjays for a Festive Fiesta Brunch ($988 per person; add $200 and up for free-flow package) to enjoy a tower of jet-fresh seafood and free-flow drinks.
