It’s that time of the year when Christmas cheer melds seamlessly with the excitement of ringing in the New Year.
It’s around this time that hotels across the city go on an overdrive to transform themselves into the most happening hangouts with the excellent food and fabulous music on offer for New Year’s eve revellers.
The Wave International on NH-33 is offering a unique package for families. This year, the resort will introduce night stay for couples and has planned a New Year’s eve only for couples and families.
Owner of the resort, Raja Singh, said this would be a new experience for residents of the city.
Unlike other years, the resort will not be overcrowded. The programme would be organised inside a banquet hall to keep guests warm. Passes for couples are priced at Rs 10,000 that includes lunch, high tea and dinner for December 31 and a complementary breakfast the next day.
A DJ night and dance performances are also on the card. Dance groups from Mumbai and a DJ from Calcutta will add to the ambience.
“We are looking to arrange an event with limited couples. In fact, we have changed the plan to avoid stag entries to keep it more peaceful. Guests will be able to enjoy the night without having to worry about returning home to the city which is quite far from here. We also welcome children, but it will entail an additional cost,” Singh added.
