Hyatt Regency Koh Samui launches its Christmas Countdown

Hyatt Regency Koh Samui launches its Christmas Countdown

There are multiple reasons to rejoice this festive period at Hyatt Regency Koh Samui as the acclaimed new property unveils a packed schedule of seasonal events.

Countdown to Chrtistmas gets underway on 11 December with a special tree lighting ceremony with sunset cocktails and canapes. And the subsequent weeks until the turn of the new year are filled with eye-catching parties, lavish dining events and plentiful diversion for adults and children alike.

The resort, which is located in North Chaweng — and is less than ten minutes from Koh Samui’s international airport—has been an instant hit with guests since opening in July. Thus far, the resort has largely been limited to clients based in Thailand. But with Thailand now open to international travellers, the property is witnessing an uptick in bookings for the months ahead.

All the more reason to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year.

“We are looking forward to the future with optimism and what better way to bring the year to an uplifting end than to mark it with a series of special festive activities,” said Hyatt Regency Koh Samui general manager Adrian Pulido.

To that purpose, the resort has planned a series of festive activities guaranteed to put guests in a party mood.

The property incorporates around 80 native Yang Na trees (Dipterocarpus alatus) that were once used by sailors and fishermen as navigational landmarks. One of these, the highest, will be the site for a tree lighting ceremony where a live saxophonist will provide the soundtrack for cocktails and canapes.

Enjoying great food and drink is one of the cornerstones of the festive season. And gastronomes will find plenty to savour on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

A Christmas Eve dinner at SESUN, the resort’s buzzing beachfront grill, features a sumptuous BBQ buffet as well as a live band and a fire show. The action shifts to the resort’s main restaurant, Yangna Cuisine, on Christmas Day, which will host a multi-cuisine banquet encompassing traditional festive favourites, Japanese cuisine, fresh seafood and risotto in a cheese wheel.

For New Year’s Eve, Yangna Cuisine hosts a barbecue gala dinner with a live band. The culmination of the festive program, meanwhile, takes place back at SESUN where DJs, live performers and a fireworks display will see out 2021 and usher in 2022 at a lavish countdown party.

The resort has also curated a range of supplementary events over the festive period. These include Christmas cupcake decoration for families, a cocktail-making class and omakase festive cocktails at Kube bar and an appearance by the man himself — Santa Claus — at the resort’s beach pool on Christmas Day.
