The Lunar New Year celebration at the resort will formally begin at 10:18 a.m. at the Main Lobby. As a tradition, there will be an eye-dotting ceremony for the lion and dragon dance to bring in good luck; followed with a string of firecrackers meant to drive evil spirits away; culminating with the Prosperity Toss, a beloved ritual to bring in a long life, prosperity, and unity for all. Throughout the weekend, all-day dining restaurant Tides has set the stage for an indulgent celebration, as well. Guests were invited to dine and drink to their heart’s content at the Lunar New Year Lunch and Dinner Buffet, which was available from January 24 to 26.
