The Peninsula Hotels shares the festive spirit during the holiday season with the stylish return of the lovable holiday ambassador SnowPage, and the chance to win the ultimate Peninsula experience with “Golden Tickets” offering glamorous prizes for all the family.
Having raised more than USD 1.5 million since its launch in 2003, The Peninsula Hotels’ annual holiday fundraising campaign takes on a designer makeover this year as, partnering with luxury toy-art collective Papinee, The Peninsula’s iconic holiday mascot SnowPage dresses to impress, with a percentage of proceeds from each SnowPage donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation®. SnowPages can be purchased at the hotels for USD75 each, or for more information, visit peninsula.com/snowpage.
Hand-made with luxurious fabrics and detailed embroidery, the desirable limited-edition SnowPages also include the chance to win the experience of a lifetime with surprise seasonal gifts. In each Peninsula hotel around the world, hidden inside a large number of the boxes are “Golden Tickets” for bespoke Peninsula adventures specially designed to create lasting memories for all the family.
Lucky guests have the chance to win grand prizes of a two-night stay for four in the hotels’ top suites, a fun dinner for four, daily breakfast plus exciting Peninsula Academy family experiences including exclusive picnics, making and flying kites, learning how to prepare dim sum, delicious desserts and more. Other prizes feature delectable dinners for four, or the celebrated Peninsula Afternoon Tea sets, all intended to forge indelible impressions and meaningful memories.
Specializing in creating magnificent toys showcasing beautiful embroidery and detailed craftsmanship, toy-art collective Papinee has designed 10 exclusive limited edition SnowPage toys inspired by the arts, culture and architecture of each Peninsula destination, with just 300 SnowPages created for each city.

The Peninsula Hotels’ festive celebrations get even more special with magical tree lighting ceremonies launching the 2015 holiday season at each hotel, accompanied by carol singing, colorful decorations and delicious Christmas treats. Throughout December, curated festive experiences for the whole family will thrill guests both young and old.
