After kicking off its festive season with a special tree lighting this week, The St. Regis Doha unveils a wide variety of promotions and events for the whole family this December. At the ceremony, more than 300 guests watched the illumination of the six-metre-high tree, listened to a youth choir from the Qatar Music Academy sing holiday carols, and took pictures in front of Qatar’s largest gingerbread house. “Throughout December, all of The St. Regis Doha venues are celebrating the spirit of the season with new decorations, and are hosting a wide variety of winter wonderland events for the whole family,” said Tareq Derbas, General Manager of the St. Regis Doha. “We have prepared a calendar of events that offers something for everyone, whether guests want to celebrate a traditional Christmas, welcome 2013 with top Lebanese musicians, or simply relax with a barbeque on the beach.” On 24 December, guests can enjoy a special Gala Dinner in the hotel lobby, featuring “A Taste of The St. Regis Doha” – a five-course festive menu prepared by the culinary team. Guests can relax with the Sherman Irby Quintet straight from Jazz at Lincoln Center Doha, while Santa surprises children with gifts.
