Each one of our hotels offers couples and families a unique Christmas and New Year break by the sea, with impeccable food, entertainment and service.
For families with excited kids, we have children’s entertainment, soft play, indoor swimming pools and a visit from Father Christmas and his reindeer. And for couples retreating for festive romance, we have a luxurious spa, fine dining and live music.
The Sandbanks Hotel is a great destination for families who wish to come away and celebrate Christmas or New Year by the sea. Step off the terrace for brisk beach walks or relax in one of the hotel’s cosy corners all beautifully festively decorated. If you have little ones they can be happily entertained by our Funsters Team with Santa visits, pantomimes, crazy games and evening entertainment for parents.
