Christmas Day at InterContinental Sanctuary Cove
Christmas Day reveals two distinct celebrations at InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort. Choose from traditional lunch or dinner buffets inside Macarthur’s Ballroom, or keep it more intimate with signature four-course menus inside The Fireplace. Which Christmas Day celebration will you choose?
Christmas Day in McArthur’s Ballroom
Experience five-star buffet cuisine in a luxury ballroom setting from 12:00–3:00 pm with the Premium Beverage Package, gifting bottomless glasses of Chandon NV Brut, Australian wines and a range of beer choices on Christmas Day. Along with the Premium Beverage Package, the Christmas lunch includes a carvery selection, featuring cranberry-glazed roast turkey, baked ham with charred nectarines and roast beef leg with gigantic Yorkshire puddings, complemented by fresh salads, seafood, antipasti and of course, an incredibly decadent festive-themed dessert display. Tickets include a three-hour premium beverage package and face painting and a special gift from Santa Claus for children.
If you would prefer an evening celebration, head over for a sparkling Christmas dinner buffet inside Macarthur’s Ballroom from 5:30–8:30 pm. Traditional festive favourites and carvery dishes will be paired with a fresh Australian seafood selection of oysters, mussels, prawns and more. Whilst enjoying live entertainment and tucking into savoury Christmas gems, unwrap a range of sweet surprises with festive-themed desserts, including fruit mince pies, chocolate yule log, strawberry Santas and an interactive ice-cream station.
Christmas Day at The Fireplace
Celebrate Christmas Day inside InterContinental Sanctuary Cove Resort’s signature restaurant, The Fireplace, from 12:30–3:30 pm. Indulge in Executive Chef Matt Hart’s festive-inspired four-course menu alongside sparkling flutes of Moët & Chandon Champagne. Entrees include duck breast with aromatic lavender, followed by Laphroaig Whiskey-cured Tasmanian salmon and a luxe festive intermezzo of tangerine sorbet with cranberries.
Mains infuse Christmas traditions with The Fireplace’s signature wood-fire style, serving up beef tenderloin with signature trimmings, including Brussel sprouts and port wine jus. The experience is sweetened by the inclusion of a flowing Premium Beverage Package and the final dish on the menu: gingerbread trifle served with brandy cream, cherries and mince pie infused ice cream.
