The tradition of the Holiday Gingerbread House began in 2011 with the construction of the island’s largest gingerbread house. The magical house, designed and sculpted by Hyatt engineers and award-winning Pastry Chef Suharto, stands at 12-feet tall and consists of approximately 400 sheets of fresh-baked gingerbread bricks and 800 pounds of royal icing, and is adorned with colorful candies, cookies and sweet treats. Throughout the month, the gingerbread house will be a main feature of Hyatt’s Winter Wonderland display that will include scheduled Christmas caroling, Santa story time and photo-taking opportunities with Santa Claus and his elves.
