This luxury hotel has put up a unique handcrafted tree for this year’s Christmas.

Reindeers made of recycled material are placed around the tree, giving it a natural feel. The lighting adds another dimension and certainly makes the spot an ideal place to capture some memories on your smartphone cameras. At Residency Road
This plush mall in the heart of the city has pulled out all stops to decorate its interiors. What’s different this year is that instead of installing a tree in the foyer, the tree has been put up in the lobby. Even the pots placed adjacent to the escalators are done up with smaller Xmas trees.
The main staircase is covered with a red carpet giving the space a glamorous feel. The food court on the first floor too looks festive as most restaurants have done up their spaces with red-and-gold themed festive décor. If there’s one spot, where you know every picture you click will look great, then it has to be UB City! At Vittal Mallya Road
