12 Reasons to Celebrate the Holidays at Chula Vista Resort

We are a short countdown from the holidays, and there are so many fun ways to celebrate. Chula Vista Resort offers the ultimate holiday vacation destination where you’ll get all the favorite festivities of the season, while still being able to enjoy a getaway.

1. In-room Decorating

Being away from home on the holidays doesn’t mean you’re giving up your Christmas trees or room decor. When you add-on our Christmas Tree Renta to your holiday vacationl, you’ll get a bag of ornaments to decorate the tree and 12 sugar cookies with icing and sprinkles. If you want to step up your decor in your room, you can add-on our Full Room Holiday Decorating. This includes everything you’d get with our Christmas Tree Rental package plus red and green balloons, garland, plate settings for six people, candy, a holiday door hanging, holiday coloring pages and more! 

To reserve your Christmas tree or room decorating, please call 608-254-8366 ext. 5267 or email Rachel, our Kids Activities Coordinator, at rachelc@chulavistaresort.com.
