The weather couldn’t have been any better for Christmas 2014. Excitement had started the evening before at our annual Christmas Carols, when it was announced that Father Christmas might make a stop at the hotel on his way to his very own Christmas holiday.

The children gathered on the veranda early as signs and sounds of Santa’s sleigh were seen and heard on the Hotel property. The hunt was on 🙂

As the children ran around trying to find Father Christmas, hotel staff prepared the area around the helicopter landing pad for Santa’s arrival. There’s always something magical about Father Christmas’ arrival, and when it’s in a helicopter, you can just imagine 🙂

After Christmas presents were handed out to each child, most guests settled in at the pool for the rest of the day.
