Holiday spirit doesn’t rely on snowy sleigh rides or sipping hot cocoa by a crackling fire, believe us! All over Grenada you’ll already hear Christmas carols and Parang playing on the radio and see decorations going up – even if it is only mid-November! If you’ve ever dreamed of escaping the frigid cold of winter to a lush, tropical Caribbean climate, the holiday season is the perfect time to do it.
At Laluna, we pull out all the stops for Christmas. The restaurant, lounge and bar are decked out with Christmas decorations-including our unique tree-bringing holiday cheer to life. White lanterns and Christmas lights turn the club house area into a twinkling wonderland, and a local choir entertains guests with carols.
Guests come together on Christmas Day to enjoy a true holiday celebration. Christmas lunch is a family-style celebration the Laluna way. We bring all of the restaurant’s tables and chairs down to the beach for a gourmet seaside barbecue, with guests enjoying delicious fare including lamb, steak, chicken and vegetables.
A plunge into the sea and a siesta on a beach lounger is the perfect way to end the day. For those up for more, a traditional Christmas dinner is served in the restaurant, along with signature Christmas-y cocktails that would make Santa go “Ho Ho Ho”.
Laluna rings in the New Year in style. The Sunset Lounge is the perfect place to kick off the festivities with the Manager’s Cocktail Party at 7:30 pm; guests can head down to the beach early to enjoy the beauty of the last sunset of the year.
Following the Manager’s Cocktail Party, the main event kicks off with with a six course dinner, served Italian Family-Style. Guests sit at one long table and sharing in leisurely conversation and laughter. Once the meal wraps up, DJ Gary keeps the party going, helping guest dance in the New Year. For the more adventureous, the first jump into the sea after midnight is a Caribbean tradition for ringing in the new Year.
Of course, after all of that holiday indulgence, you may need to detox for a healthy start to the New Year. For those who have resolved to start the New Year with wellness in mind, Laluna’s Asian Spa is mere steps away from your room, allowing you to recover from the revelery without ever leaving the property. For those who prefer to recover in a more ‘liming’ style, Bloody Marys will be in full supply to help aid the recovery along.
