The next widely celebrated holiday on the horizon this year is Easter. With April upon us, it’s time to talk about celebrating it at your hotel.
In this article, we will share some of our tips on how to celebrate Easter at your hotel this year. We’ll cover a variety of ideas to encourage creative thinking.
That being said, let’s jump into it!
1. Social Media Marketing
With the holiday fast approaching, the fastest step you can take to prepare is to begin a social media marketing campaign. You can begin as early as a week or two to Easter and it can still work well.
One of the ideas you could try is making themed posts. These can include decorative posts, nice Easter quotes, cute photos of bunnies, or fun facts relating to the holiday.
You could also use this marketing campaign as a chance to highlight special holiday packages or offers you might be offering… which nicely leads up to our next point.
2. Special Holiday Packages and Offers
As we said before, consider offering special holiday packages to your guests. These can be anything from special themed meals to entertainment options to spa trips.
These sort of offers can be used to upsell or cross-sell to guests who are already staying at your hotel. They can also be used to attract completely new holidaymakers to your hotel as guests.
In fact, social media posts promoting these offers can also be created and posted, tying this tip to the one before it.
3. Seasonal Decorations
The next way you can really make your hotel pop around Easter is to get into the theme and decorate it a little.
Whether it is soft pastel ribbons, painted eggs, or rabbit-themed decorations, a little seasonal decoration goes a long way towards creating that spirit of the holidays among your guests. Your staff might appreciate it too.
However, it is worth noting that there is such a thing as too much decoration. Setting a reasonable budget and staying within it is the best way.
4. An Easter Meal
A limited time offer is one of the best ways to get people interested. So what better offer is there than a delicious meal that can only be eaten at Easter?
Different parts of the world celebrate Easter in different ways. This is especially true of the food. So doing some research and creating a diverse spread for the Easter feast can be a very rewarding experience.
Additionally, this event can also be a great opportunity for guests to socialize and get to know their neighbors.
5. Egg Hunt
One of the most classic ways to celebrate Easter is through an egg hunt. It is an activity that parents and kids alike enjoy.
So why not consider setting up an egg hunt at your hotel? With your staff’s support, you could make a fun activity for families that takes up the midafternoon to early evening portion of the day.
The egg hunt can also lead these families all over your hotel and result in them discovering interesting places and facilities that they may want to splurge on and try.
These are just some of the ways in which you can celebrate Easter at your hotel. We hope our list gave you some creative ideas to try.
