New packages add to magical holiday experience with Santa

Santa is coming to the Beau Rivage!

Santa and his friends return to Beau Rivage’s BR Prime to host a magical Coastal Mississippi holiday tradition, the exclusive Brunch with Santa on Sunday, Dec. 5.

BR Prime, the resort’s acclaimed steakhouse, transforms into an enchanting setting perfect for creating lifelong memories with Santa and other holiday characters. Guests can also enjoy an expansive presentation of classic Sunday brunch offerings like fresh seafood, live action cooking stations, traditional breakfast offerings, and delectable holiday sweets and pastries, as well as bottomless Bloody Mary’s, Mimosas and Poinsettias.

In addition to culinary delights, children will receive a commemorative photo of their special day with Santa and a limited edition keepsake gift. All are encouraged to wear their Sunday best attire for the occasion.

“For a truly unforgettable experience in a breathtaking setting, Santa Brunch brings the holidays to life for the entire family.” said Beau Rivage VP of Hospitality Murat Akan. “BR Prime takes on a new elegance at Christmas time and this event has become a Gulf Coast holiday tradition.”
