Christmas & New Year at Elgin

Down The Memory Lane

Christmas is the most incredible time of the year – of mistletoes and midnight mass, of carols and candy, of snow angels and secret Santa! As the temperature drops, the festive spirit permeates in bringing people collectively over the sabbatical season. Whether you’re an admirer of warm fires, fancy parties, grand feasts or an adrenaline rush, we got you covered as we jingle our way to celebrate Christmas. Refreshments and good cheer will be abundant this Christmas season at The Elgin Hotels and Resorts. It is embedding on exactly what you’d expect from an elegant property and has a protracted and vibrant history of celebrating Christmas.

Nestled in the Himalayan mountains, the resort is famous for its natural surroundings, with many of its guestrooms viewing luscious green spheres. This picture is enlarged with a sprinkle of Christmas spirit from 24th December to 1st January every year. Since 1887, it has been celebrated in the same style without interference with a grand Christmas tree lighting ceremony, carol singing, cocktails and Christmas meals whipped up at cooking stations. This place gives the festival its own unprecedented cultural and culinary twist, making celebrations all the merrier. It has been a tradition for Elgin to delight guests with a Christmas Gala dinner, Garden bonfire, Cocktails and Local Folk Dances. In recent years, the voices and tune of leading performers from countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Canada, America, France and Mauritius have also enchanted Elgin audiences. The outstanding millennium Christmas of 1999 attracted guests from 15 countries, including Brazil, Britain, The United States, Canada, Germany, Switzerland, Australia, South Africa, Thailand, Japan and China.

Experience a part of local life by visiting service at one of the neighbourhood churches where the local churches resound with Christmas carols and are embellished with Christmas trees. If you’re musically inclined, the calendar this time of the year has an exciting week-long festival that kicks off on Christmas day and ends in the New Year. Bright and engaging, there’s a lot to observe and explore at this action-packed fiesta. The entire place echoes with carols wishing you a Merry Christmas and lending a cheerful soundtrack to your holidays.

The most romantic way to travel in the hill station is by taking a joy ride on the toy train and witnessing dreamy vistas of snow-draped mountains from the warmth of your cabin. The awe-inspiring beauty and charm of the hills make the aura seem more alluring during Christmas. The whole spectacle is really captivating and looks so enticing at night. It gleams with lights during the season and the entire city is painted in the color of this festival.
