Vista Mall shows how distinct, delightful malling experience must be
Written by: Amy R. Remo
In the Philippines, the shoppers are back.
Especially during the weekends, crowds would flock to the malls, as many missed their favorite stops, shops, restaurants and the beautiful retail chaos of the metro. Some malls, in fact, have already seen foot traffic exceeding pre-pandemic levels since last year.
But while this is the case, malls nowadays continue to embark on a retail reinvention as they seek to further raise the bar in retail experience given new needs that emerged over the last three years. To recall, the pandemic gave rise to many unprecedented shifts that up until today continue to shape the tastes and preferences of mallgoers.
For instance, many now place more premium on experiential aesthetic open spaces, unique concepts, and sustainability, among others, expecting that their favorite malls would embrace these trends as well.
One mall developer, though, has long provided its mallgoers with these emergent preferences, even prior to the pandemic. Vista Land and Lifescapes Inc., through Vista Mall, has created some of the most beautiful malls in the country, providing picturesque spaces, pocket gardens, unique retail, dining, and entertainment concepts, and so much more.
Here are some of the reasons why Vista Mall continues to stand out in the local retail scene.
Having proven to be an architect of beautiful estates and a designer of curated lifestyles in the residential space, Vista Land brings this same expertise in its shopping malls.
Vista Mall has integrated landscaped lush pocket gardens, airy open spaces, atriums, artistic walls, and charming nooks and walkways, that do not only offer picture-pretty spots, but can also and more importantly offer safe, healthy spaces for families and friends to converge. And this was long before such areas became an important feature in any establishment.
The Evia Lifestyle Center in Vista Alabang, for example, has The Atrium, an indoor park; the Promenade, a walkway of lights; and the Piazza, among other beautiful spots. The different Vista malls across the country offer their own amazing spaces as well.
Nowadays, mallgoers want concepts that are one-of-a-kind and exciting. Whether it’s for retail or dining, they want their curiosities to be piqued and their palates satisfied. They crave for unique experiences and such can be had in the different restaurants offered by the AllValue Group and which, of course, you can only find in a Vista Mall.
Satisfy your cravings for great food and coffee amid picturesque surroundings in Coffee Project, recognized as one of the most Instagrammable cafes in the world, while Bake My Day will delight you in its scrumptious selection of breads and pastries. Dear Joe will let you shout to the world your feelings through a love note, whereas Gastroville and Paluto can easily whip up your classic Filipino favorites. Nostalgia hits hard meanwhile in Sixty Four, a hip, retro-themed bistro that serves a sumptuous fare and cocktails.
It’s non stop entertainment at any Vista Mall which gives you lots of ways to have fun with family and friends. Catch a movie at Evia Lifestyle Center, which offers the first iMax with Laser theater in Southeast Asia. This premium state-of-the-art cinema technology offers sharper images and powerful, heart-pounding sounds that enhance your movie experience.
Give the young ones the time of their lives at Kinder City. It’s the perfect way to tear them off their gadgets even for just a couple of hours and let them sweat it out as they slip, slide, jump and bounce. It will also help your kids develop social skills too.
Shows, fairs, exhibits
Vista Mall is truly a destination that creates new points of convergence, experience, and grandeur with its exciting line-up of events and pop-up stores.
In February, NOMO–A Vista Lifestyle Center partnered with Wolfgang Steakhouse for a limited romantic dinner for Valentine’s Day. Vista Mall Bataan is also host to numerous trade fairs and exhibits, fun mall shows, exciting meet and greet events, a flashy car display, a whimsical Disney show, trick or treat, competitions, Christmas revelries and more.
Of course, no mall is ever complete without its retail shops and essential stores where you can find everything you will ever need.
Vista Mall, however, gives its mallgoers a lot more to look forward to. In Vista Mall Naga, for instance, you’ll find curated concepts by AllValue that include AllHome, AllDay, AllToys, KAL which recreates the exciting buzz of Asian markets, No Name which has cute Japanese and Korean inspired products, Paper & Co which offers premium arts and crafts supplies, Pet Buddy and AllGreen.
