It is the grandest time of the year once again at the Grand Dame this Christmas season. With the commitment to make worthwhile memories, especially for children, The Manila Hotel prepared something big this year---its very own Colonial Christmas Village! A magical and whimsical Christmas holiday experience awaits the whole family when they stay at the heart of Manila.
Take a stroll down Parsons street and be taken back to time colonial where street lamp posts are lit to guide you on your tour. Drop by the Town Mayor’s office to get your passes and enjoy each stop along your way with your little surprises. Drop by Willy’s Emporium where you can redeem or buy your own “Willy” the bear and unique finds like colonial toy trains from UK based toy shop, Hamleys. Visit the Page, Turner, & Co., and spark your imagination with our storytelling activities every Saturday and Sunday. Read and draw your hearts out with books from Adarna House. Enjoy a can of cookies and a hearty kiddie meal prepared by the chefs of The Manila Hotel just for you at the Patisserie Bakeshop and Tea Hall. Enjoy all-time Christmas movies inside the Grand View Cinema with your own popcorn bag, cotton candy swirl and ice cream bar.
Unveiling the very first colonial Christmas Village of The Manila Hotel is its Resident Manager, Gerhard Doll, who welcomed guests dressed as the Town Mayor together with the Assistant Vice-President for Public Relations and Corporate Communications, Nian Liwanag-Rigor. As a gift to the wonderful kids of House of Refuge, the Hotel’s chosen beneficiary for this year, they were the first ones to experience to walk down Parsons Street and enjoy the activities of the Christmas Village.
The Hotel’s Christmas village is made possible through the partnerships with Hamleys of London Ltd., the oldest toy shop in the world and one of the world’s best-known retailers of toys and Adarna House Inc., a publishing house known for its storytelling sessions. Epson Philippines provided decorative wallpapers for the entire village making it look like a street from a glorious past.
