Christmas and winter are two of my favourite times of year. I have always envied countries that get to celebrate a white christmas with snow and hot chocolate and Christmas sweaters! So I was beyond excited when Hilton Hotels teamed up with Ugg Australia this winter to create the most spectacular Winter Wonderland themed stays.
Hilton & Ugg Australia successfully created the most magical overnight experience I've ever encountered.
We chose to stay at Hilton South Wharf (who can turn down that city view?!), however the Winter Wonderland theme continued through to the Flinders Street location also.
They say "first impressions are everything" and boy did they make a good first impression! Upon arrival we were treated to a very festive tray of goodies including freshly made hot chocolates, toasted marshmallows, snowballs and chocolates. There were even Christmas bonbons to really add to the festivities! I won, of coarse.
The floor, bed and walls were lined with the most luxurious and cosy Ugg materials and in the far corner, by the incredible view of Melbourne, sat the prettiest faux snow covered Christmas Tree. I literally could not take my eyes off it all night. And to top it all off, a collection of Christmas/Winter themed DVDs to watch as we gnawed on the left over chocolates. Home Alone 1&2 marathon in bed surrounded by faux snow, a christmas tree and the most beautiful view of the city with the one you love.. perfect!
After one of the best sleeps I've had all year, we popped downstairs to Dock 37, Hilton's in-house restaurant, for a buffet breakfast. It was so yummy that I didn't even get a photo of it, but the eggs, bacon & chocolate croissants were to die for and make your own juice bar, even better!
This year it ran from July-August, so keep your eyes peeled for Hilton's Winter Wonderland next year.
The whole experience was truely magical, I could not recommend it more highly.
