Christmas tree lighting ceremony


The Christmas tree lighting ceremony is back to bring the Christmas spirit, post-pandemic.

The event had tons of lights, hot cocoa, cookies, as well as the Tumon Bay Youth Orchestra playing Christmas songs.

Santa Claus was also there to spread some holiday cheer.

PNC spoke to the Director of Rooms, Chris Cortezano, to learn more about the event.

He says, “It’s been a really long time we’ve been able to gather like this post-pandemic.”

He continued, “We’re just really excited to share this moment with everybody..”

Residents and visitors are encouraged to come to the Dusit Thani to see the tree and take photos.

Cortezano says, “The tree will be up until Three Kings, January 6, so feel free to bring your family, friends, and we’ll be more than happy to see you and accommodate you here at the Dusit Thani.”
