The Langham Auckland is getting in the Christmas spirit with all kinds of festive eats and decorations galore. The elegant hotel is the place to stay in New Zealand's largest city, capturing the timeless elegance of the original Langham grand hotel in London. Talk about a wonderland of indulgence! The hotel has decked its halls and is offering special yuletide afternoon tea as well as an opulent Chuan Spa Christmas package with complimentary gifts. Carolers will join Santa on December 12 in The Great Room during the grand Christmas afternoon tea buffet. What we love: the festive dining in the hotel's SBF Brasserie and Barolo restaurant. SBF Brasserie has morphed into a Christmas wonderland, delivering traditional favorites and over 40 other delectable dishes to tempt diners at lunch or dinner. They've got cute gingerbread houses and giant candy canes on display and a dedicated Mövenpick carriage serving ice cream. A festive lunch and dinner buffet is available in the lead up to Christmas at $42 per person for lunch or $65 per person for dinner. Christmas Eve buffet dinner is $69 per person. Or head to Barolo restaurant for an elegant Christmas Day experience, savoring a four-course meal complete with amuse bouche for $130 per person. Christmas lunch will be served from 12 – 3pm and dinner from 6.30pm – 10pm. Reservations are essential.
