The festive celebration begins at Rasa Sayang with beautifully decorated Christmas trees in the lobby and restaurants from the first day of December. A 7-foot tall unique Christmas tree constructed from two types of popular Malaysian spices, Star Anise and cinnamon sticks fills the atmosphere with their wonderful aroma. The tree fittingly placed in front of Spice Market Café, the all-day dining restaurant at the resort. The peak of the celebrations start on Christmas Eve with an evening cocktail for all guests at the Banyan Tree Garden where carollers from The Seventh Day Adventist Church belt out popular Christmas carols in harmony. The Santa Claus and Santarina will also be seen around the resort on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day giving out candy canes to everyone they meet.

Guests, munching on snacks and with drinks in hand, will be serenaded with great music by Somebody Who, a local band in Penang. The countdown party ends at the stroke of midnight with black and gold balloons raining down in honour of a completed 2018 and a grand welcome for 2019.
