Christmas of Dreams
Ready for a photo-op at the luxury resort’s main entrance now is the 32-foot Christmas tree bedazzled with 10,000 glistening LED lights and surrounded by fantastical ornaments. It will serve as the centerpiece of the holiday decor across the property, including the three luxury hotel brands Nuwa, Nobu, and Hyatt Regency.
Danish designer Creation Group conceptualized and designed the décor, executed by Tema Design Philippines.
City of Dreams Manila promises that the tree lighting is only a prelude to exciting Yuletide festivities there.
“The Christmas of Dreams comes alive at City of Dreams Manila as we bring an exciting lineup of custom holiday events for everyone to enjoy with their families and loved ones that make us a fitting destination to spend the most wonderful time of the year,” said City of Dreams Manila COO Kevin Benning.
Officiating the tree-lighting event with Benning and wife Angel were Parañaque City Mayor Edwin Olivarez and spouse Janet, Parañaque First District Congressman Eric Olivarez, and Belle Corp. chairman of the executive committee Willy Ocier.
Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid punctuated the night singing anthems “Araw, Gabi” and “Ako’y Iyong Iyo.” In the spirit of the season, she also sang “Joyful, Joyful” and “Christmas All Over the World.”
In keeping with City of Dreams Manila’s commitment to sustainability, all Christmastime décor will be powered by solar energy, with the installation of a solar rooftop at the parking building, a first among integrated resorts on Philippine shores.
“Significantly, Christmas is more meaningful this year at City of Dreams Manila, which marks a milestone in December for being the first integrated resort to launch the 1.2-megawatt solar panels at the resort’s parking building rooftop with Meralco’s Renewable Energy subsidiary, Spectrum,” Benning said.
