The holidays can be overwhelming with so much pressure to enjoy a slice of time off with the family before a return to the hustle and bustle. Malls are filled to the brim with frantic shoppers looking for just the right gifts and kids get cranky and tired waiting in those endless lines to sit on Santa's lap. That's why Beau Rivage designed a specialty holiday experience that puts all of the magic of the season into one simple package, that alleviates some of that stress and allows you to enjoy all of the dazzling holiday enchantment that can fit under one roof.

Christmas is a classic and multi sensory experience at Beau Rivage. Their gorgeous lobby is complete with a towering Christmas tree that's positively dripping with ornaments catching the light at every angle. Regardless of the weather outside, within the hotel's walls icicles dazzle from the helms and larger-than-life nutcrackers and red and green hollies add grace to the charming setting. There's no better place to enjoy a steamy hot cocoa as you listen to the lovely carolers sing their tunes.

The resort does everything they can to make shopping for the perfect gift a fun and stress free experience. Enjoy a visually stimulating walk through a hallway filled with 5,000 poinsettias and breathe in the scent of fresh evergreens as you make your way to the ultimate shopping destinations along the retail promenade. In addition to a plethora of free samples and money-saving promotions, on Dec. 15, over a dozen trunk shows will take place.

The annual Holiday Open House event will feature representatives from each Brighton, Gucci, David Yurman, John Hardy, Mignon Faget, Moments, Pandora, Jay Strongwater, Pass, Christian Soap Company, J. Renee and Vera Bradley among several others offering the newest products and freshest gift ideas of the season.

The resort also offers spectacular entertainment for the whole family to enjoy as they've converted their theater stage into an ice rink for The Holiday Ice Spectacular, a mesmerizing holiday theater event running from Dec. 11 - 30. The performance will include a 12-minute version of The Nutcracker, Santa's helpful elves and a figure skating extravaganza that the whole family will enjoy. Tickets start at only $9.95 and room packages that include two tickets to the show as well as a night of deluxe accommodations are available for just $89.99.

The show is not the only stop the resort is pulling out to keep the children happy. There will be endless opportunities for them to enjoy special complimentary photo opportunities with Santa Claus and everyone under 12 eats free at the hotel's extensive buffet. For a sweet treat kids will be offered buy-one-get-one-free ice creams at Scoop's old-fashioned parlor.

There's plenty to keep the grown ups happy at Beau Rivage as well, with great holiday giveaways such as their Mistletoe Money and Winning Wonderland; two promotions that are sure to help you win big at the resort's casino, a luxury wonderland in which adults can party and play.

Whether you're looking for a bonding family experience, a romantic getaway or simply a relaxing, carefree Christmas stop by Beau Rivage for an enchanting holiday season you won't soon forget.
