Metro Manila’s Best Staycation Places for Christmas 2016 & New Year (MARCO POLO ORTIGAS)

It’s the most wonderful time of the year again! Christmas is such a fun occasion for everyone and most people are excited to celebrate it. Some celebrate it in other countries- a good opportunity for travel and bonding with family and friends. Others celebrate it in the comforts of their home or in a different place near home – could be out of town or a hotel staycation.Last year we spent it with family in a quiet hotel. It was a gift that me, my brother, and sister gave to the whole family.

Why do some families spend Christmas now outside the home? The reasons may differ but mostly because they want to experience something new with the whole family. The memorable experiences they share every holiday season will be remembered forever. It’s a way for some families to spend quality time, enjoy, relax, and visit a new place near home.


Here’s the first of our highly recommended places for staycation this year!

Why is it worth it to stay at Marco Polo Ortigas?: Marco Polo Ortigas has so much in store for the adults and kids this Christmas season. Aside from having Christmas decors around the hotel, the have activities even for the kids.

We just love hotels that prepare for special occasions and are very warm and welcoming to everyone just like Marco Polo Ortigas. They love children too and didn’t forget to plan activities for them. The sincere reception of the staff of this hotel is great and you won’t have a problem getting in touch with them- via email, phone, or social media.

Marco Polo Ortigas also lined up the activities for everyone so when you stay here for the holidays, you don’t need to leave the hotel for mass, for example, you can just stay in the building and celebrate the meaningful season with family and friends.
