The most wonderful time of the year just passed and we are so bummed it’s over! Holiday cheers were everywhere and Manila Ocean Park & Hotel H2O were no exception since the two companies held its Christmas tree lighting ceremony last November 20, 2019, to kick off the season. Last year’s 15-meter high recycled Christmas tree has a theme “All Aboard the North Pole Express” which promotes the company’s advocacy against climate change.
Aside from the recycled Christmas tree, Hotel H2o also had 5 Yuletide events for the season!
Everyone had a very Dazzling Christmas Eve last December 24. The program started with a sumptuous buffet especially made by our chefs and a delicious grazing table. While everyone was eating, there were Christmas carolers singing Christmas carols to set the festive mood. Of course, Christmas eve wouldn’t be complete without Santa Claus giving away Christmas gifts! Everyone ended Christmas eve with a mass at Manila Ocean Park’s concourse area.
But wait, there’s more! Those who didn’t sleep after Christmas eve went to Hotel H2o’s White Moon Bar to celebrate Christmas Under the Stars. Everyone had fun with the DJ playing good music and of course, White Moon Bar’s cocktails and bar chow.
The Christmas mood didn’t stop there! December 25th came and Makan Makan Asian Food Village offered everyone a Festive Christmas day lunch with Santa Claus to greet everyone a very Merry Christmas! Christmas carolers were also at Manila Ocean Park’s concourse area to sing and perform Christmas carols to everyone who visited the park. And, a surprise performance from Manila Ocean Park’s brand ambassadors; very own Humboldt Penguin mascots!
To celebrate New Year’s Eve, Hotel H2o held it’s 2020 New Year’s Eve Celebration at Manila Ocean Park’s Arctic Bay Lagoon. For this event, we had an acoustic duo to accompany us the whole night and a DJ for the NYE countdown and what made this event special was the buffet with a special seafood corner prepared by our chefs, which was a first! Guests who didn’t want to end the night yet went to White Moon Bar for the Moonlight Masquerade NYE countdown and party ‘till it’s 2020!
We are very glad to say that everyone had a fun and joyous holiday with Manila Ocean Park & Hotel H2o for 2019! We hope to see everyone again this 2020! Stay tuned for our future promos and events by liking Manila Ocean Park and Hotel H2o Facebook pages!
