It’s a Wonderful World of Whimsical Thrills at Resorts World Manila
The festivities have begun and everything looks amazing.
Resorts World Manila welcomes Christmas with grand experiences and whimsical thrills for guests to enjoy at the Grand Fiesta Manila celebrations.
Get your Christmas spirit soaring with the 35-foot Christmas tree laden with thousands of lights, hundreds of Christmas balls, and dozens of snowflake lanterns. The resort is filled with holiday displays such as the Christmas Sleigh at Cafe Maxims, Santa’s Workshop and Elves at The Plaza, and Christmas arches throughout the properties.
The Lumina Walkway of Lights is transformed into a glittering hall of snowflakes, tinsel, and stars. Enjoy a truly white Christmas with ICE, an interactive snowscape with real snow and temperatures that could drop to -15 degrees Celsius.
Entrance is free for Resorts World Manila (RWM) Gold tier members and up. Other members can also enter ICE for free by redeeming the ICE coupon with the RWM mobile app or by presenting single or accumulated receipts from RWM signature restaurants or from Newport Mall shops worth at least P500, and at least P1,000 for non-members. All guests must bring their own winter gear to be allowed into ICE.
Santa Claus and the UP Singing Ambassadors are spreading Christmas cheer on weekends at 6 p.m. until Christmas Day.
RWM is also holding anticipated simbang gabi and Christmas Day Mass services, allowing guests to observe religious obligations. The anticipated simbang gabi is held at 6 p.m. daily until December 23 at The Plaza while the Christmas Day High Mass will be at 11 a.m. on December 25 at The Newport Performing Arts Theater.
The resort’s signature restaurants are serving up special seasonal offerings throughout December—perfect for Christmas feasts.
RWM’s Grand Countdown at the Marriott Grand Ballroom (MGB) will welcome 2019 with a show headlined by Sarah Geronimo and hosted by Giselle Sanchez. The doors to the Grand Countdown will open at 7 p.m. on December 31, following the New Year’s Eve Mass at the Ceremonial Hall of the MGB at 6 p.m. The Grand Countdown also features a banquet prepared by the Manila Marriott Hotel culinary team led by multi-award-winning Executive Chef Meik Brammer.
Guests will also get the chance to win prizes from the Grand Countdown’s nightlong raffle draws. Even children will have the change to take home treats when they join the Grand Countdown Kidzone’s special activities.
A free New Year’s Countdown featuring OPM legend Ely Buendia and The Ransom Collective will be held simultaneously at The Plaza. A New Year’s Day Mass will also be celebrated at The Plaza at 4 p.m. on January 1.
