HYATT REGENCY KINABALU USHERS IN CHRISTMAS CELEBRATIONS WITH “THE POLAR EXPRESS”-THEMED CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING CEREMONY

KOTA KINABALU (3 DECEMBER 2018) – Marking the beginning of the festive season, Hyatt Regency Kinabalu hosted the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony held in the Lobby Lounge. Hyatt Regency Kinabalu unveiled its Christmas theme for this year, “A Journey to the North Pole”, as a salute to the popular 1985 children’s book written by Chris Van Allsburg – “The Polar Express.”


The Board of Directors, restaurant diners, in-house guests and media friends were in attendance to witness the luminous lighting ceremony. The ceremony began with a lovely speech by the hotel’s General Manager, Thor Gervasi, followed by the official lighting of the Christmas tree, the climax of the event.


The hotel lobby was transformed into a wonderland with a 10-foot Christmas tree featuring train tracks and spectacular fairy lights. The hotel also showcased the engine of a steam locomotive train in The Lounge, train station signage in the car porch area and various white-and blue-themed decorations to show the spirit of the season and centred on the wonder of “The Polar Express”, all were made with recycled items.



“Christmas is all about giving, love and care. At Hyatt, we truly want to share the joy of Christmas with those who are less fortunate than us. This year, we are collecting Christmas presents for the children from the orphanage homes of Care for the Future Malaysia, Good Shepherd and Care Haven. We can make a difference in the lives of the orphans with our simple act of generosity,” remarked Thor Gervasi, General Manager of Hyatt Regency Kinabalu.




Visit Hyatt Regency Kinabalu for the unique Christmas experience from 1 December onwards and join in the various activities organized for in-house guests, as well as patrons, on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Listen to the mesmerizing Christmas carollers serenading The Lounge from 22-24 December, from 7:30 PM-8:30 PM.

Oriental Treasures, A Mid-Autumn Delicacy

Hilton hotels in Malaysia launched its national mooncake series, Oriental Treasures, with an enticing array of traditional baked varieties of classic and modern flavours - a celebration of culinary craftsmanship, fine quality and exquisite flavours. To top it as a festive centrepiece, this year’s national mooncake box design pays homage to the core of Chinese heritage.  Embellished in imperial red, the premium square box features a noble pair of red-crowned cranes amongst sacred clouds. Characteristically celestial, the golden full moon illuminates the scene, much like the celebrated baked mooncakes during Mid-Autumn festivities. The ornate die-cut window pane, inspired by the moon windows of Oriental architecture, offers a peek to the individual matte-finishing gold and red receptacles housing its respective mooncakes. As reunions and rituals take a different form this year, the mooncakes serve as a reminder to go back to basics. Eugene Oelofse, National Marketing Communications Direc
