A giant Christmas gingerbread house in glittering winter wonderland, a choir performance by youngsters from a local orphanage, and artists-in-residence program will be part of the festive programme.

The 30-hectare beachfront resort will host a Christmas and New Year’s Eve cocktail party and dinner, as well as champagne breakfast, wine and cheese tasting and buffets from December 15th until January 1st 2023. Children will be entertained will range from baking, singing, dancing and piano classes, face painting, Christmas craft-making and a kite-flying competition, Christmas movies at the Alma Cinema and visits by a gift-toting Santa Claus, colorful clowns and Alma’s teddy bear mascot.

“We are excited to make Christmas a memorable time for our guests here at Alma. With a wide array of experiences, we are sure that guests will have a Christmas to remember” said the resort’s managing director Herbert Laubichler-Pichler. “Our team can’t help but cherish Christmas and New Year’s Eve all the more following Vietnam’s COVID-19 flare-up last year that forced Alma to temporarily close during this wonderful time of the year.

In addition to breakfast buffets to mark Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, an Instagram-worthy champagne breakfast on a floating tray will be on offer in the guests’ private pavilion pools or at one of the 12 resort pools that cascade down to Long Beach.

The gingerbread house will be built from 232 kilograms of gingerbread – 800 wall tiles that each weigh 155 grams and 1200 roof tiles each 90 grams – and decorated in 40 kilograms of merengue. Director of culinary and F&B operations Ingo Stöneberg’s team started baking the gingerbread for the house from the first week of October. It will take roughly two months to prepare the dough, and shape, bake and dry all of the bricks before the house is assembled in about 48 hours

Alma’s Italian fine dining trattoria La Casa will host exquisite five-course dinners on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve to an accompaniment of the resident musicians’ live piano and singing.

Alma’s Le Spa’s promotions during the festive season include a 90-minute ‘Sensory Spa Journey’ with a signature massage featuring hot stone therapy on the back and a pressure point massage on the face, and a two-hour ‘Festive Glow’ package with a body wrap and a sublime deep tissue massage.  Both offers are rounded out with a healthy drink after the treatment.
