The Leading Hotels of the World host myriad festivals
May 21, 2014: With summer comes great occasions to unwind, celebrate and eat! But if the cultural side of summer is what you seek this season, the Leading Hotels of the World tells us about various festivals around the world hosted by their members.
In compensation for the long dark winters in St. Petersburg, nature brings the legendary long summer evenings or White Nights, and the city celebrates! The Stars of the White Nights Festival is considered among the ten best music festivals in the world today, and among the most popular and diverse musical events in Russia. To further the happiness for this years event, which runs from late May through the end of July, attendees can book the Rocco Forte Astoria Hotel with rates from RUB 15,045 per night, single occupancy, and RUB 16,090 per night, double occupancy, which include breakfast and service charge. VAT and registration fees are additional.
Another great alternative is the Montreux Jazz Festival that has evolved into one of the landmark events of the international summer music scene, thanks mainly to its founder’s approach to music based on conviviality and passion. Since the beginning, Claude has been inviting artists to his place to share a good meal before and after concerts. This unique mix of music, food and camaraderie has given him a very privileged place in the artist’s hearts. Paid performances take place in the Stravinski Auditorium, Montreux Jazz Club and Jazz Lab, as well as on board boats and trains. This year’s festival runs from July 4 to 19, and there are still rooms available at a number of Leading Hotels around Lake Geneva.
The festival of Ganesh Chaturthi, also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi, will be supported by The Taj Mahal Palace in Mumbai. The hotel can easily arrange for guided tours of the festival, which can include stopping at colourful markets and workshops where idols of Ganesh are made. A breakfast inclusive offer is available which includes buffet breakfast, and is priced from INR 19,500 per night, single occupancy; and INR 21,000 per night, double occupancy. This year, the festival runs from August 29 to September 14. So what's your excuse to getaway this summer?
