What comes to mind when you think about “Living Grand”? Is it surfing along a private beach in São Paulo with Kelly Slater? How about having your entire wardrobe overhauled by Carine Roitfeld? Better yet, playing la joga bonito com Beckham, CR7, Ochao in goal, Drogba, e Papa Mourinho as coach? Living grand is the ultimate of luxuries that a handful can afford, and a mere few can execute. The Grand Hyatt happens to be apart of the mere few who have perfected the concept of “Living Grand”.

To enable guests to unlock the extra in extraordinary, Grand Hyatt Hotels unveiled Living Grand for the Holidays with a series of three events across three continents in New York, Berlin, and Melbourne inspired by local traditions of gingerbread house decorating,Melbourne Opera, and a mini Nutcracker performance. And I know you’re thinking the holidays are over, but that’s not true. Let’s open up that treasure trove of holidays celebrated around the world that aren’t just Christmas or Thanksgiving. There’s Diwali in India, Loi Krathong in Thailand, Chinese New Year in, well, I shouldn’t have to tell you. Imagine a consistency of over the top fantasy fit for the rich and famous. Culinary offerings so vast and so exquisite a day of room service gorging is a definite must, amenities like relaxing with Tropical Enzyme Soufflé Smoothie Treatment or sunbathing privately at ZPlage you’ll never want to return home, plus the world-class service will remind you that settling should never be an option.

“By definition the Grand Hyatt brand celebrates grandness in service, design and hospitality,” said Katherine Melchior Ray, Vice President of Luxury Brands for Hyatt. “And this holiday season our properties will once again be destinations for spectacular experiences that make every moment memorable.”

Don’t believe me? Search the #LivingGrand and see what comes up – we’ll wait. Yeah, thatprivate performance by Sugar Plum Fairies was a Grand Hyatt Living Grand experience.  That’s just Christmas. Think what they have up their sleeves for other moments, especially with Cannes Film just around the corner.
