Sponsored: It is the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, after all…

December is here and the build up to Christmas is on. Decorations are up, mulled wine is brewing and we’re working through our advent calendar at an alarming rate. It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, and Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates wants to help you celebrate.

There are many ‘magical experiences’ on offer at the hotel, from luxurious chalet staycations, to family-friendly festivities and lavish celebrations, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

On Christmas Eve, head down to Salero for an authentic Spanish fiesta with family and friends. With live entertainment, traditional tapas and paella from the a la carte menu, and a real buzz of festive excitement.

For a more traditional approach, Olea is hosting the ultimate Christmas buffet brunch on December 24 and 25. Enjoy all your festive favourites, including a Turkey and roast beef carving station, and a winter wonderland inspired pastry counter. Prices start from Dhs400 with soft drinks, Dhs550 with house beverages and Dhs250 for the kids’ package.

When it’s time to ring in the new year, you have three brilliant options. Olea is throwing a glittered gold & silver themed party with live band, raw seafood bar and live cooking stations, which is priced from Dhs900 with soft drinks, Dhs1,150 with house drinks and Dhs450 for kids.

Alternatively check out Salero for a family-friendly environment with live entertainment, plus unlimited tapas and Spanish beverages. This is priced at Dhs495 with house drinks, or add Dhs150 for a bubbly upgrade.

Or celebrate at Noir, where a DJ will take you through to 2022 in style. The luxurious bar will have its a la carte menu on offer, and a minimum spend of Dhs350 per person will be applied for those wanting a table.
