The Festive Season 2019 started on November 30 at InterContinental Hanoi Landmark72, with spectacular displays of giant Christmas trees, sparkling lights, and, most importantly, the meaningful values the hotel brings to disadvantaged children in Hanoi through this special festivity.

Last Saturday, InterContinental Hanoi Landmark72 welcomed 150 guests and 50 children from SOS Village Hanoi to witness the moment the dazzling lights turned on for all the Christmas trees in the hotel, signifying the start of the season of festivities. This year, not only does the giant Christmas tree come back, made of more than 300 LED-lit balls across the hotel’s iconic signature atrium between the 71st and 62nd floors, but it also features for the first time a five-meter tall Polar Bear Christmas Tree, which serves as the highlight of the CSR activities from InterContinental Hanoi Landmark72 throughout this Festive Season.

“At InterContinental Hanoi Landmark72, we put social responsibility at the heart of everything that we do, and what better occasion to spread joy and warmth to the less fortunate than the season of festivity?”, said Cecilie Nguyen, the hotel’s Executive Assistant Manager.

Completed within one day with nearly 1,200 stuffed Polar Bears, this special Christmas tree will not only be a stunning addition to the Festive decorations at InterContinental Hanoi Landmark72 but also help to donate to the hotel’s meaningful charities. Each Polar Bear is available for purchase at only VND150,000 ($6.5), and for each bear sold the hotel will donate another one to children in several hospitals and orphanages in Hanoi.

Guests joining the Tree Lighting Ceremony also became the first people to taste the new flavors of the season from all five restaurants and bars at InterContinental Hanoi Landmark72, with a spectacular dinner buffet at 3 Spoons Restaurant, featuring new Festive dishes alongside premium ingredients like 40-month aged Iberico black pork, Canadian lobster, Russian king crab, and the best cuts of meat from Stellar Steakhouse, paired with a selection of fine wines from Hanoi’s second-largest collection that the hotel proudly features.

Throughout December, festive diners can enjoy daily special menus at all dining venues. The famed Afternoon Tea experience at The Hive Lounge comes back with a Chocolate Buffet every day, exclusively from the famous Weiss chocolate brand. Fans of the 3 Spoons’ diverse menus can expect a festive addition to the Plat du Jour salad bar lunch concept, or special set menus for dinners featuring classic dishes alongside Chef Doan Trong Dat’s creative options - including the seven-spices Cao Bang Roasted Duck; a rendition of the traditional Christmas turkey.

From Stellar Steakhouse and Stellar Teppanyaki, a newly-stocked meat fridge of the most premium cuts is ready to welcome meat lovers in Hanoi for the most unforgettable festive dining experience. Special set menus are ready for dinner every day, elevated with exquisite touches from Chef Denvers Rattan and Chef Arif Rachman. Guests should not miss out on the ultimate dining experience on Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve, where all restaurants have prepared their best feasts of the year.

Throughout December, fans of Hanoi night life can also revel in the festivity and celebrate a spectacular year-end with a brand-new collection of bespoke cocktails made by the talented team at Q Bar. From Monday to Saturday on December 6, 24, and 25 will be the special Santarina Night, with electrifying DJ performances and three hours of free-flow drinks for female guests dressed up in Santarina outfits. Guests can also look out for a lavish countdown party at Q Bar on December 31, as we cheer and leap into the New Year from the top of Hanoi.

Don’t forget to drop by the Festive Deli Shop at InterContinental Hanoi Landmark72 this month to take the beautiful InterContinental Polar Bear and some of the festivity home, with the hotel’s selections of fine treats and pastries of the season, from luscious foie gras and premium bird’s nest to home-made gourmets by the team at Stellar Steakhouse.

For the third time since opening, the Festive Season 2019 at InterContinental Hanoi Landmark72 will be a celebration full of glamour, gourmets, creative touches, and special meanings not only for the hotel and its guests but also the community at large.
