Christmas & New Year at Elgin

Down The Memory Lane

If it’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas, that’s because it is.

There were some very frazzled people around. It’s understandable. Most are just trying to make others happy; to give loved ones the meal or gift they think they want. Sometimes, we all need to step back from the frenzy and remember it is supposed to be festive. Christmas should be fun. Well, some think that’s just for children! But it’s also for adults to step off the hamster wheel and, relish the life and people they work so hard for.

At Elgin Hotels and Resorts, we eagerly await the time of carols, hearty dinners and festive cheer. As the temperature drops this Christmas season, our holiday spirits only rise and bring us together to celebrate the most wondrous time of the year.

Our quest to give you the best of the season every year brings in the scent of freshly baked goods accompanied by mellifluous carols and the twinkling lights of the grand Christmas tree. Warm fires, refreshments and grand feasts are all abundant in store to make the most of the joyous occasion, the same way it has since 1887. As unified as we are in our Christmas celebration, each of our locations also has much to offer to our guests individually. Be it within the hotel or outside, each city has a story of its own.

An Yuletide Cheer

Kalimpong & Darjeeling

Spending Christmas and New Year in Darjeeling or Kalimpong is truly a fairy tale of a holiday. From mesmerizing sunrises to a journey on the Toy Trains watching and absorbing the beauty of the mountains and valleys, these beautiful places are indeed worthy of being on a postcard. And if the views from the ground weren’t enchanting enough, hop on a hot air balloon and have a look at the stunning landscape from above.

Gangtok & Pelling

Lands of rich history and beautiful lakes. Go for a traditional yak rides, throw some snowballs at each other and look over the vast expanse of Tsomgo, a seasonally changing glacial lake that reflect different colours like a shard of mirror held to the light. With ethereal views of the snowcapped mountains and the prestigious Mt.Kanchenjunga from all over the city, you don’t even have to leave your room to experience beauty and bask in the festive cheer.

Kolkata

Home to one of the largest Christmas carnivals in India, the city of Kolkata explodes in a flurry of colours and lights every year same time. An urban experience, different from being nestled in the mountains, but just as or even arguably more magical. Walking through streets woven with strands of multicoloured lights and colourful banners, join the festive celebration with the locals. Stay long enough and you’ll even get a glance of Santa as he makes his way through the city.

In this season of joy and festivities galore, no matter which hotel you stay at, the experience will be one for the books and a story worth many future retellings. The Elgin has its own well preserved festive tradition to delight guests that include a Christmas Gala dinner, Garden bonfire, Cocktails and Local Folk Dances. Recently, the voices and tune of leading performers from countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Canada, America, France and Mauritius have also entrapped Elgin audiences.

The Christmas of 1999, marked the end of a millennium and also attracted guests from over 15 countries, including Brazil, Britain, The United States, Canada, Germany, Switzerland, Australia, South Africa, Thailand, Japan and China.Stepping out of the hotel you can also experience Christmas as the locals do by visiting service at one of the neighbourhood churches that are decorated with beautifully adorned Christmas trees and the resounding tunes of a variety of Christmas carols. The Elgin Hotels and Resorts alongwith the awe-inspiring sights of the mountains and the vibrant streets of the city, welcome you wholeheartedly to partake in a one in a million Christmas experience.
