    Enjoy a holiday tea and a Hublot shopping spree at The Langham, Sydney.

    The Langham, Sydney

    To make this holiday a memorable one, hotels all over the world are going above and beyond their usual packages. Instead of a decorated tree and Christmas cookies — most years, that’s more than enough to get us in the holiday mood — hotels are trotting out in-suite Nutcracker performances, a private penthouse party for New Year’s Eve and gifts like luxury watches.

    Whether you want to celebrate Christmas, New Year’s Eve or the winter season, these Forbes Travel Guide-approved hotels will give you the VIP treatment:

    Go on a Hublot watch shopping spree in Sydney

    Watch aficionados will want to check into The Langham, Sydney. The Four-Star hotel offers a special Christmas-themed afternoon tea with Swiss luxury watch brand Hublot and an exclusive shopping excursion to Hublot’s store. Plus, you’ll open a lavish holiday gift: two Hublot Big Bang One Click Steel Diamonds watches. After your shopping spree, you’ll retreat to the Observatory Suite, which overlooks Observatory Hill and the gorgeous city skyline. And make time for a four-hour luxury sail around Sydney Harbour with a gourmet picnic basket during your two-night getaway.
