Five places to spend NYE in T&T

Christmas passed as fast as it came and the celebrations are coming to a close, but there’s still one more event you need to plan for, New Year’s Eve. 

Whether you intend to kiss your partner or watch some fireworks at the stroke of midnight, you’re going to need a plan.  

With just a few days left before we ring in 2020, here are five places you can spend New Year’s Eve. 

  1. The Hyatt Regency ($585 per person) 

The Hyatt is helping you say hello to the New Year in style. They’ll be hosting a buffet dinner with champagne specials all night. There’s also a special event for in-house registered guests, so if you decide to spend a night, there’ll be a bit more in store for you. The live countdown to midnight will close out an elegant night. 

  1. Radisson Hotel ($650 per person, tax inclusive) 

The Radisson’s 360 restaurant will come alive on New Year’s Eve for their dinner buffet. They'll be hosting patrons from 6.30pm- 10.30pm, just in time for you to get back home to ring in 2020. 

  1. Kapok Hotel ($1220 double or single occupancy) 

Newly renovated, the Kapok Hotel is also giving you an option for how you can spend the last night of the year. They’re offering one night, buffet breakfast on New Year’s morning, all with early check in. Enjoy Queens Park Savannah views with that special someone or all by yourself, the choice is yours. 

  1. Mt Irvine Bay Resort, Tobago (packages starting at $1628.50) 

If you want to kick things up a notch to welcome the new decade, the Mt Irvine Bay Resort has something extra special planned. The deal requires a minimum of at least two nights, but it includes pre-dinner cocktails, dinner, New Year’s Day breakfast and accommodation. The highlight of the stay is Mt Irvine’s Poolside Gala, where there’ll be fireworks, party favours and live entertainment. If you live in Tobago, you can just attend the gala for $1020.

  1. At home 

What could be better than being surrounded by friends and family, safely tucked in the living room, enjoying each other’s company. Include some light eats, playing cards and board games and you just might have the best way to ring in 2020.
