DUBAI - The host of royalty and presidents, legends and legacies, Waldorf Astoria has always been the perfect place to celebrate the festive season. Proudly standing on the East Crescent of the Palm Jumeirah, Dubai's Waldorf Astoria will deliver a refined and heartwarming collection of holiday festivities, providing visitors and guests the opportunity to experience the very best in cuisine, beverages, exceptional service and accommodation.

Throughout December, guests of the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah can create unforgettable moments with their loved ones; from Festive Afternoon Tea in Peacock Alley; a space inspired by the grand promenade that connected the original Waldorf and Astoria hotels in New York, to a Christmas tree lighting ceremony taking place on December 9th with carol singing and festive treats. There will also be a host of dining offerings on property for loved ones to enjoy together on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, including an abundant selection of international cuisines and holiday classics at Mezzerie restaurant or an Italian inspired feast from Michelin Star Chef Heinz Beck at Social.

For those wishing to ring-in the New Year in style, there will be a show-stopping 'Studio 54-inspired' New Year's Eve on the hotel's stunning garden and beach front. A nostalgic throwback to a very glamorous era, the evening will invite guests to experience the unforgettable views of the Palm Jumeirah and glittering Dubai skyline above. Featuring a sophisticated selection of dishes, the joyous occasion will be complemented by a five- piece band followed by a DJ after midnight. For those seeking a more refined New Year's Eve option, Social by Heinz Beck will host an elegant dinner with a grape pairing option.  

The Waldorf Spa will have an array of special holiday packages available throughout December, set to ensure guests are prepared for the busy social season ahead such as the soothing Shimmering Dubai Nights massage and the rejuvenating Blue Diamond Facial.

This festive season, in the spirit of giving, Waldorf Astoria will launch their special 'Waldorf Bear' initiative which will see endearing Waldorf teddy bears available for purchase in the property's lobby. For every teddy that goes to a new home, a second one will be placed on the luxury hotel's grand festive tree. Once fully decorated, the bears from the festive tree will be gifted to children at Rashid Pediatric Therapy Center.
