Timeshare owners celebrate a birthday while on vacation.

“Surprise!” You knew it was coming, but of course you are thrilled to see your friends and family in front of you with smiles, candle-lit cupcakes, and balloons to honor your big birthday on this special celebration vacation. Don’t worry, age can remain anonymous!

Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, or a big work promotion, why not mark the occasion with a destination celebration at a Hilton Grand Vacations resort? Instead of a two-hour dinner party at a crowded (and loud) restaurant, you can have a two or three day celebration where you connect with your closest family and friends creating lifetime memories. At HGV you will be treated to more space, more quality time, a full kitchen (to bake a birthday cake), concierge services (to order flowers and balloons delivered to your condo), housekeeping, and plenty of resort activities. So what creative surprises and ideas can you do?

Here are 10 ideas to consider when planning a celebration vacation.

Dive-In Movies

If you are planning to celebrate in one of our Orlando or Hawaii properties, you can arrange a dive-in movie under the stars. Order pizza and sip Pineapple Sculpins while enjoying a big screen movie experience outdoors.

Rent Out Our Movie Theater!

Did you know you can rent out an entire movie theater at the HGV SeaWorld property? No matter the age of an upcoming birthday, a private screening of a favorite movie, complete with bowls of popcorn and gummy bears, sounds just right.  

The Hilton Grand Vacations movie theater, perfect to rent out for celebrations for all ages.

Activity Center + Pool Party

Have you stayed at the new Hilton Grand Vacations Club Ocean Oak Resort on Hilton Head, South Carolina? It’s truly a stunning property with a gorgeous pool and white sand beach access. You can celebrate out by the pool and then work your way inside to play games in the activity center.

Spa Party

Whether a big birthday or a bridal shower, you can get pampered at HGV. Spa services for your entire party can be arranged at Hilton Grand Vacations Club – Anderson Ocean Club, Myrtle Beach or Valdoro Mountain Lodge in Breckenridge. Nails, facials, or massage, paired with a few bottles of bubbly can make the perfect spa day celebration!

Splash Pad Party

Hilton Grand Vacations Club Las Palmeras has a fantastic kid-friendly splash pad adjacent to the incredible pool. Order pizza, swim, and splash, to ring in the big 10th birthday (Or 40th, we won’t judge!).

Game Room Party

Parc Soleil Hilton Grand Vacations Club Orlando and Tuscany Village Hilton Grand Vacations Club have jaw-droppingly fun game rooms for all ages at heart. Shoot a few rounds of pool, host a ping-pong tournament, and even a competitive game of chess. You can work with our dedicated recreation teams to plan the ultimate game room birthday party.

Wine Tasting Party

Staying in Orlando? Our HGV concierges would love to help sign up for our wine tasting celebration during your next visit. Try local wines and enjoy their respective pairings.

Texas Hold’em Party

Why not invite family and friends to a friendly game of cards to celebrate something special? Your group can get comfortable out by the pool to play well after the sun casts a green flash over the ocean.

Campfire Party

After enjoying a day at Legoland or the San Diego Safari Park, come back to the Hilton Grand Vacations Club at MarBrisa to roast s’mores together over one of our fire pits while watching a perfect San Diego sunset. Magic.
