As a special highlight of the season, the Hotel’s Tree Lighting Ceremony welcomed the public on 8 December 2017 where the hotel is dressed to impress with holiday decors. The ceremony was held in front of the hotel entrance where by-standers are able to enjoy the beauty of the 8-foot tall Christmas tree. Plenty of bright string lights were strung around the foot of the Christmas Tree and on it, adding the air of festivity.

The Christmas tree lighting was officiated by Hotel Grandis’ General Manager, Mr.Micheal Tan. He quoted that “Christmas is all about giving and sharing.” He hope that the true meaning of the holiday season will fill everyone’s heart with many blessings.


Children and teenagers, aged 10-16, from Care Haven Children Home were invited to the ceremony to experience a taste of the exciting holiday season. Care Haven is an orphanage for the homeless kids and a shelter or home for the needy children located at Likas. The hotel bought Christmas gifts to each of the children and hope that the children will be able to cherish the gifts. The gift-giving is a reminder of the less fortunate during this festive month and inspire the ones who are involved in the programme to exercise the spirit of giving.

As expected, the performance drew out a huge crowd and the hotel was pleased with the turn-out as they have successfully spread the Christmas cheer to those who are present.
