From Sunny Florida to snowy Colorado to Hawaiian paradise, Vistana resorts are bringing the cheer this year.
This season, Vistana resorts are making things even better with an array of holiday celebrations, activities, themed menus, and more. Here are just a few that are bringing extra merriment for you to look forward to on your upcoming stay.
The Westin Kā‘anapali Ocean Resort Villas & The Westin Nanea Ocean Villas
Enjoy the warm spirit of the islands with ongoing Polynesian-inspired holiday entertainment and activities at these two neighboring resorts on beautiful Maui.
Take part in family-friendly holiday activities like Stocking and Ornament Decorating, Hanukkah Crafts, creating your own whimsical Christmas “Sock Snowman,” and a resort holiday favorite: Gingerbread House Decorating — perfect to get the whole ‘ohana (family) together. The houses will then be displayed in the South Lobby of The Westin Kā‘anapali Ocean Resort Villas and the Main Lobby of The Westin Nanea Ocean Villas for all to enjoy.
The kids, and adults, will also love chances to meet some of the holidays’ most famous characters. Guests at The Westin Kā‘anapali Ocean Resort Villas can arrange a personalized Elf Villa Visit, where Santa’s little helpers will deliver a surprise to your villa door and read a story to the kids, making for a great holiday memory. Gather with other Guests at the Hot Cocoa & Cookies with Rudolph event. And don’t forget a special chance to welcome jolly old Kanakaloka (Santa Claus), as he visits The Westin Kā‘anapali Ocean Resort Villas on Christmas Day.
Resort restaurants will feature special holiday dining options not to be missed, including special Thanksgiving and Christmas brunches and buffets at Auntie’s Kitchen and Mauka Makai, as well as special Thanksgiving and Christmas Prix Fixe Menus at Pūlehu, an Italian Grill.
Sheraton Steamboat Resort Villas
When you return from an active day on the powder-white slopes, warm up roasting Gourmet S’mores, made with Colorado chocolate-filled marshmallows, beside a crackling fire.
You’ll also rekindle the Yuletide spirit as Steamboat Carolers sing holiday classics sure to delight young and young-at-heart alike. And, of course make a visit to Santa’s Workshop so the little ones can meet the legend himself.
What’s more, Sheraton Steamboat Resort Villas will feature Christmas Eve and Christmas Day dinner buffets, as well as a special New Year’s Eve Dinner. Bring your loved ones and prepare for a wonderful holiday feast. Then gather together at one of the resort’s ideal viewing areas for an unforgettable New Year’s Eve Torch Light Parade and Firework Show — the perfect way to ring in 2018 in style.
Sheraton Vistana Resort
The FUN Team at Orlando’s Sheraton Vistana Resort has so much holiday-themed fun on tap this year. After a day exploring the theme parks, return to the resort and join in events including Christmas Eve Interactive Storytelling with Santa & Mrs. Claus, as they share the classic “A Visit from St. Nicholas” (’Twas The Night Before Christmas). The couple will also do the Christmas-Eve honors at the resort’s Annual Tree-Lighting Event.
Another highlight throughout December is the 1st Annual Gingerbread Holiday Hunt. Join in this fun quest to find all of the hidden gingerbread men, fill out your answer sheet, and turn it in for a chance to win a resort stay!
There will also be opportunities to reflect on the things that make the season truly special. Take a moment to reach out to the service men and women who keep us safe with materials for you to express your appreciation in Letters to Our Troops, and bring a smile to those who serve — the FUN Team will make sure your letters are delivered. And pay a visit to the Thankful Tree, where you and your family can stop and take a moment to share what you are thankful for this holiday season with a “leaf” for you to sign and place on the tree.
