Warm Christmas Cheer from Down Under

Palazzo Versace hotel

How is it that 1 more sleep and it’s Christmas already? Not that I don’t like it, it’s my most favourite time of the year. The festive atmosphere, the cheer in the air and the love around is overwhelming. I did my last minute Christmas shopping and Sydney was just full of shoppers, I could barely moved. And now I’m broke haha. Not from the Christmas presents but from my holiday in Gold Coast, the kids were just high maintenance ;-))

Christmas 2016

We stayed at 2 different hotels, the second one was this 5-star luxury hotel Palazzo Versace. I just love the grand design from the marble floors to the gigantic chandelier at the main lobby. Versace Hotel has an air of elegance and luxury. The furniture, throw pillows and plates are encrusted with the Versace logos.

The Medusa head on the floor is very famous in Instagram, I saw young people dropped by and take photos in the lobby including this one ๐Ÿ™‚ I like the giant Christmas tree the most where it’s made up of stuffed teddy bears, how cute is that?!

Where to stay in Gold Coast

I wore this frill blue dress from Mango and caged heel from Missguided when we went to dinner. And this ‘Off-Duty Blogger’ clutch was something I must use to break the seriousness of the evening. We stayed in the Lagoon room that faced the massive and landscaped pool. On my next post I will feature the activities we did here especially swimming and eating ๐Ÿ˜‰ You have to see the hotel photos inside and outside captured during daytime, it is just jaw-dropping.

So I’m wishing you a warm Merry Christmas, warm not only because we are enjoying warm weather down under but I’m wishing you all the spirit of Christmas that is of joy, hope and unity. Remember, Christ is the reason for the season. I hope you are looking forward for the Christmas eve dinner and Christmas day festivities.
