Can you imagine walking through life-size gingerbread houses?

There’s two Hyatt Regency hotels that offer just that for kids and the families that love them.

Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe takes holiday decorating to a whole new level. Each year, the chefs build a life-size gingerbread house which is on display in the lobby from late November to early January. The House – which is so big guests can walk in it – is made with 15 pounds of sugar, a gallon and a half of molasses, and 45 pounds of flour! The resort also offers all-day activities for kids and parents during the holiday period including cookie decorating, free movies in the evening and more. Their seasonal schedule includes family-friendly movies for evenings in together or you can take a trip to the on-site arcade. Additionally, s’mores kits can be purchased and delivered by room service for the family to roast marshmallows over a fire pit while enjoying storytelling and hot cocoa.

Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa offers a life-size gingerbread house for kids to enjoy, and holiday cocktails for the parents. There are a host of activities for your entire family to enjoy together at this Scottsdale Arizona family resort like learning key techniques in a group golf lesson, sing around a blazing campfire or watch a movie under the stars. They even offer experiential vacations that vary during holiday times. Some past activities included Reptiles of the Sonoran Desert, Family Fun Sing-Along, with singing cowboy and Native American Dancers and Arizona’s unique “Birds of Prey.” Activities like poolside movies, desert biking adventures, desert 4×4/Hummer tours, and hot air balloon rides.

Hyatt Hotels with Candy Cane Hunts, S’mores with Santa & Holiday Movie Nights

Hyatt Regency Hill Country: Daily activities include candy cane hunts, holiday movie nights, obstacle courses, and festive arts & crafts. Every Friday leading up to Christmas, guests can write letters to Santa, enjoy s’mores and read and sing along with local storyteller, Miss Anastasia, in front of the fireplace. Additionally, Santa will visit every Saturday to make s’mores and take pictures with the guests. Besides the holiday festivities, some family favorites at this resort include bicycle riding, and seasonal movies on the lawn.

Get tucked in by one of Santa’s elves

Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay: Families can start off their morning with breakfast with Santa and end their night with a tuck-in from one of Santa’s elves, complete with story time and milk and cookies (and if you need a mid-day snack, the hotel offers a s’mores bar with a variety of toppings throughout the day!). Families can take part in the old standards like foosball, horseshoes, miniature golf and air hockey and new entries such as Frisbee golf and kayaking. Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay also offers documentary style photography by Laura’s Focus Photography to capture priceless expressions and holiday moments to remember forever.
