This multi-sensory holiday experience feels like a charming cabin getaway—with better bites and festive cocktails

The entrance to Holiday Bothy at the Park

Daydreaming of a cozy escape amid the first snow flurries? There’s no place more committed to filling your holidays with unforgettable, Instagram-worthy moments than Park Hyatt Toronto.

From its immersive European-inspired winter cottage pop-up to its opulent dining spaces, Park Hyatt Toronto is the epicentre of one-of-a-kind festive events.

An enchanting bothy

When Toronto influencers say an experience passes the vibe check, you know it’s worth checking out. Holiday Bothy at the Park is getting positive buzz for its culinary offerings, premium cocktails and cozy aesthetics. 

Step through an enchanting door decorated with snow-dusted evergreen trees and into a candlelit room trimmed with rustic elements, like antler chandeliers and sheepskin rugs, designed and executed by Frank Rea Event Designs and Forget Me Not Flowers Oakville. It’s a haven hidden away from the cold city hustle and bustle, providing an ideal setting for a cocktail-infused night out with friends.

A partnership with whisky maker Glenfiddich offers guests festive handcrafted cocktails that each have a story to tell. Relax into the bothy’s comfy seats and sip on a pumpkin nog—a sweet and spicy blend of Glenfiddich 14 Year Old Bourbon Barrel Reserve, pumpkin eggnog, orange zest and winter spice—or the Alpine Lights—a sparkling purple concoction made with Hendrick’s Gin, St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur, rosemary, redcurrant and fresh citrus. It literally shimmers in the glass!

Bring your appetite, too, or you’ll risk missing out on chef Jonathan Williams’ carefully curated menu of small bites (think venison tartare, lobster poutine and fried truffle grilled cheese), as well as seasonal sweet treats like gingerbread eggnog sandwich cookies.

The limited-time pop-up experience, open Thursdays to Sundays until Jan. 1, is inspired by open-door cottages (called bothies) found in remote mountainous areas across Scotland, northern England, Ulster and Wales.

Always unlocked, these simple huts provide a space for travellers to rest and recharge. And just like those bothies, no reservation is needed for Holiday Bothy at the Park—simply drop by to experience a sanctuary of warmth and connection in the heart of the city.

Inspired holiday meals

Now’s the time to book an unforgettable dining experience with close friends or family, and Joni Restaurant has something for everyone. Reserve a table for a sumptuous three-course holiday brunch or a divine four-course holiday dinner. 

If tiny cakes and a cuppa is more your style, enjoy an artfully curated holiday afternoon tea. Sample curated sweets and savoury treats from the Joni kitchen, paired with sommelier-selected teas from Sloane Fine Tea Merchants.

The gift of pure relaxation

There’s no wrong time of year to visit the Park Hyatt Toronto’s Stillwater Spa, known for its luxurious and sustainable approach to beauty and wellness thanks to a stunning redesign in 2022.

The spa has created three seasonal experiences that will immediately become a core memory for any gift recipient on your list. What better way to treat a loved one (or yourself!) than with an hour-long massage and a rejuvenating facial? Then, consider booking a stay in one of Park Hyatt’s 219 spacious rooms to complete your day of ultra-luxurious comfort.
