Hollywood, Fla. - This year, Diplomat Resort & Spa Hollywood, Curio - A Collection by Hilton, invites guests and local visitors to celebrate the magic of the holiday season with glittering décor, holiday dining and joyful events.

The Magical Macaron
To usher in the holiday season, Diplomat Resort & Spa will unveil a 22-foot Christmas tree made of 12,500 hand-crafted, sweetly-flavored French Macarons. The first ever of this size, the magical Macaron Holiday Tree - created by Executive Pastry Chef Henry Martignago and his culinary team - will be on display in the Diplomat's lobby throughout December. The hotel will offer an array of the dainty, delicate and decorative pastries representing holiday flavors along with signature "macaron-inspired" cocktails at the property's restaurants and Lobby Bar.  In addition, a miniature pastry kitchen in the shape of a whimsical life-sized gingerbread house will be serving made-to-order macarons with flavors that include pumpkin spice and peppermint, transforming the hotel lobby into a sweet winter experience. 

Christmas Morning Buffet
Our chefs are preparing an impressive Christmas Brunch on December 25, from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. in the hotel's Crystal Room. This festive spread will include traditional holiday favorites along with a delicious array of breakfast and lunch selections, including an omelet station, fresh seafood, specially prepared dry-aged meats and a bountiful offering of house-made holiday desserts.. Prices are $75 for adults; $20 for children ages 5-12.

Spa-liday Indulgences
Now through December 31, the Diplomat Spa will be featuring two holiday-inspired spa packages from $100. The "Holiday Glam" spa package will leave you feeling refreshed, glamorous and ready for the holiday season. Enjoy a complimentary glass of bubbly upon arrival to relax.  Next, using antioxidant-rich cranberries and infusing them with smooth coconut oil, the Cranberry Yuzu Manicure and Pedicure will condition and revitalize hands and feet. The second package is the "Spa-liday Delight," at $135, enabling guests to customize the ideal spa day. Begin with a 50-minute spa service with a complimentary enhancement: Swedish massage with scalp massage, firming facial with eye mask, or reflexology enhanced with aromatherapy-infused warm towel wrap. Once their relaxation treatment is completed, guests will be able to take in the sweet smell of salt water coming off the Atlantic Ocean from the terrace or beachside while letting their worries drift away.
