The latest addition to the RWM property, the Grand Wing houses Hilton Manila, Sheraton Manila Hotel and the soon-to-open Hotel Okura Manila, plus more dining outlets and gaming space for guests. Make sure to visit the bridge at night when it seems especially glowing.
Have your family photo taken at the Grand Wing Lobby’s golden jumbo Christmas ball sitting in the middle of giant Christmas trimmings. If you are going for something that exudes glamour and luxury and spells luck and cheer for the season, this is the best spot for a photo op.
THE PLAZA, NEWPORT MALL
It has become a Resorts World Manila tradition to kick off its Grand Fiesta Manila celebrations with the ceremonial lighting of its towering Christmas tree at the Newport Mall Plaza. This year’s tree is adorned with giant Christmas balls in red and gold and stands at 20 meters with a golden star on top to symbolize how RWM celebrates the grandeur of Grand Fiesta Manila. Swing by the Newport Mall Plaza every weekend to enjoy the indoor light parades and live Christmas carols from the UP Singing Ambassadors.
