Sheraton Subang's Unique Christmas Crystal Tree

SUBANG JAYA: A Christmas tree made of crystal greets visitors to the Sheraton Subang Hotel and Towers here.

Constructed entirely from crystal pieces it is believed to be the first of its kind in Malaysia.

“The tree is made in such a way so as to highlight the hotel’s Christmas theme 'Magical Christmas',” said the hotel's marketing and communications manager Elaine Aisyah.

“Crystal pieces are among the latest decorations being used by people on their Christmas trees.
“We used to have candy canes, aluminium foils, wreaths and Christmas bells. But to have a tree made entirely of crystal, that is something unique and it exudes elegance and prestige. It is somewhat chaste and highlights the purity of Christmas.”

Aisyah said the tree's structure and base were made of stainless steel, adding that it weighed about 400kg.

“We have used one of the highest grade crystal, imported from China to build the tree.

“No one in this country has a crystal Christmas tree and we thought we would do something different and unique, something out of the ordinary to usher in Christmas,” she said.

The tree will be on display at the lobby until mid January.
