Westin Manila treats guests to a grand buffet on Christmas and New Year’s Eve, room packages, and limited-edition gift baskets.
Westin Manila officially welcomed the holiday season last week with a Christmas tree and lantern lighting. This is the second event in this year’s Paskonstelasyon lineup, or Marriott Bonvoy’s constellation of holiday celebrations across the Philippines.
Westin Manila General Manager Alexander Dietzsch shared a few milestones from this year, including the completion of the hotel’s 303 rooms, the opening of two new function spaces, and the launch of the Heavenly Spa by Westin. “Finally, guests here experience the same signature wellness treatments that are available in other Heavenly Spa branches in Westin hotels across the world.”
He added, “An exciting one that’s slated next year is the opening of our rooftop bar and restaurant, which we are all looking forward to. This dining concept, created in collaboration with renowned and acclaimed Spanish chef, will feature a menu which primarily consists of seafood delights and meats. It will have an al fresco area, which is ideal for social gatherings.”
The hotel’s holiday theme for the Christmas Tree and décor this year is “Green & Bright,” inspired by the Westin brand’s design anchored on the concept of biophilia, which refers to people’s innate need to connect with nature, and how that connection affects our well-being. This concept is brought to life through the use of natural materials and elements in their true form, to bring nature into the space.
According to Meegee Yap, Westin Director of Sales and Marketing, “Preparing for the holiday season has been a thrilling and exciting experience for everyone on our team. We put a lot of heart into making this season ‘Green & Bright’ for all. Aside from our Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year buffet events at Seasonal Tastes, we’re also offering well-curated options and great ways to taste the season and spread the holiday cheer.”
