BANGALORE, November, 2016:  The annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony is the official commencement of the holiday season. And every year the spirit of the season arrives at The Ritz-Carlton, Bangalore in all its splendour, a tad early.

The hotel lobby and public areas are currently ringing with the true joy of the season with festive trimmings glittering all around. Familiar holly with Christmas baubles, bells, stars, poinsettias and all things Christmassy are lining the ceilings, pillars and corners …all done in the customary elegant Ritz-Carlton style. Reds and greens with the glint of gold are now adding a special touch to every nook and corner of the beautifully done up spaces, lending themselves exquisitely in the celebratory, yuletide manner.


In a traditionally colorful evening of joy and excitement, the hotel marks the authenticity of Christmas with the Tree Lighting ceremony on the evening of 23rd November 2016 with notable guests of the city partaking in the festivities.
