Spend Quality Time With Family In These Hotels This Easter

Celebrate Easter in a truly special way this year with a range of curated packages and activities designed to make your holiday memorable. 

Easter, a festival celebrated by Christians worldwide, holds deep significance as it commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 

According to the Bible, Jesus was crucified on a Friday, known as Good Friday, and was buried for three days. 

His resurrection on Easter Sunday symbolizes new life and hope for Christians.

According to Easter Heritage, the tradition of giving eggs during Easter has ancient roots, predating Christianity. Eggs have long been a symbol of new life and rebirth, fitting for a celebration that marks the arrival of spring. 

In medieval times, eggs were forbidden during Lent, the 40-day period leading up to Easter. 

Therefore, eating eggs on Easter Sunday became a special treat, symbolizing the end of the Lenten fast.

Today, Easter is celebrated in various ways around the world, often incorporating both religious and secular traditions. 

Families gather for festive meals, attend church services, and participate in activities like egg decorating and egg hunts.

For those looking to celebrate Easter in a special way, several hotels offer exciting packages and experiences:
