Metro Manila’s Best Staycation Places for Christmas 2016 & New Year (THE PENINSULA MANILA)

Here’s another highly recommended staycation place for the entire family this holiday season. For the families who love staycationing like us, Manila Peninsula lined up wonderful events and activities for all visitors of all ages. You won’t regret visiting and staying here. Since we have small kids, we prefer enjoying the places near our families and home most of the time. We go places where our small kids will enjoy and appreciate for their age. We’d like them to appreciate the spirit of Christmas around our country before they learn and appreciate the ones farther from where we live. Of course, we all have different parenting decisions and priorities.

The Peninsula Manila is really our all-time favorite (even if it’s not Christmas) and we visit this hotel back when we were a couple -having coffee dates, dessert dates, and even dinner dates. Now we visit with our kids. This is certainly a hotel with a heart and always ready to give back.

The hotel is like a holiday greeting card brought to life with all things and events that the hotel has in store for their guests. It started last November 10 when the children from Make-A-Wish Foundation Philippines lit up the 45-foot-tall Christmas tree at The Lobby, heralding the start of the holiday season. They’ve been giving their guests-ouples, families, children, grandparents and friends- a memorable Christmas experience since September 14, 1976. They give everyone an opportunity to enjoy the lights, displays, music, dining, the happy crowds and more. There will even be an Oscar’s Night-themed New Year’s Eve Gala Ball and Dinner on December 31. We totally agree that there is no Christmas quite as enchanting and enthralling as a Peninsula Manila Christmas.

Keeping Up with The Peninsula Manila’s Tradition and More

Trees of Hope

The Peninsula Hotels’ worldwide charity program, the “Trees of Hope” is their way of giving back and The Peninsula Manila is committed to participate every year and so The Peninsula Manila’s lovable holiday ambassador designed exclusively by luxury toy brand Papinee – the SnowPage plush toy- is back!

Manila’s limited-edition SnowPage plush toy derives its inspiration from the rich and vibrant culture of the Philippines, sporting colorful patterns and the sun motif adapted from the iconic Napoleon Abueva “Sunburst” sculpture in The Lobby.

Parts of the proceeds raised will benefit Make-A-Wish® Foundation Philippines- THEY grant the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses. Price starts at Php790+
