The singular sensation of the Heritage Hotel’s mighty gargantuan Christmas tree radiated an iridescent light across the Manila Bay area and heralded the beginning of the yuletide season during the symbolic lighting ceremony and unveiling of the Hotel’s Tower of London motif at its grandiose lobby.

The Heritage Hotel’s General Manager Mr. Eddie Yeo together with special guest H.E. Prof. Irzan Tandjung, Ambassador, Indonesian Embassy among elite circle of socialites and media personalities led the lighting up of the gigantic Christmas tree as angelic voices of the Children’s Joy Foundation filled the air with upbeat and meaningful Christmas melodies.  
“While we light the Heritage Hotel’s Christmas tree, we wish to set ablaze the flame in our guests’ hearts to propagate peace, harmony, happiness, hope, love and abundance to others…Being part of the Millennium and Copthorne Hotels and Resorts with more than 120 properties worldwide, the Heritage Hotel Manila drew inspiration from its London home-base’s UNESCO World Heritage Site i.e. the Tower of London as our Christmas theme,” Mr. Yeo stated. 

Every Christmas season, the Heritage Hotel transforms its Lobby into a fantasy world for children. Previously, the Hotel has featured the ‘Under the sea adventures of Pinnochio’ and ‘The Express Train to Santa’s North Pole’.

This year, the Heritage Hotel showcases the re-imaging of the Tower of London to exude  the Age of Kings, the palatial home of royalty, the depository of the crown jewels, the fortress of the War of the Roses, the spark behind Shakespeare’s epic plays on Richard III and Henry VI, the rise of the Tudors, King Henry VII’s victory for the royal crown, the pivotal role of the Beefeaters, the legend of its ravens, the tears of joy and sorrow of many kings and queens, the home to the mysteries and intrigues of the Royal court and the honor and valor of Kings and Queens.

The elaborate Yuletide décor is not complete without the Hotel’s Musical Wishing Well which serves as the instrument of the Hotel’s fund-raising drive for the benefit of ‘Our Lady of Sorrows Foundation’, a non-government organization focused on out-reach programs for indigent communities in Pasay City.

Merry-making for a meaningful and festive holidays abounded in the midst of special guests: Tin-tin Bersola-Babao, celebrity and good parenting advocate with her daughter Anya; Bob Zozobrado, Donnie Ramirez, Resty Vergara, Joy Fong, Mark Dy, Melo Enriquez & Deepa Mansukhani, Crispina Belen, Raymond Lombos, Rene Bisquera and Chona Trinidad who added glitz and goodwill to the majestic towers graced by the Hotel’s Beefeater, Princess and Twin Santarinas.

While the Hotel’s Beefeater regaled guests with fanciful trivia on magic, mystery and mirth behind the Tower of London, everyone savored the whiff and flavors of Manny O’s freshly released brand of French wines particularly Bibulus, a traditional Bordeaux style red of Merlot & Cabarnet Sauvignon blend and aged in American oak barrique and Discipulus Blanc, an elegant vintage white wine handcrafted in the Languedoc region, South of France paired with dark Hershey’s chocolate kisses and Executive Chef Alvin Ng’s hors d’ oeuvres made of Shrimp with Honey Melon, Vegetarian Curry Samosa with Yoghurt Mint Dip, Baked Chye Siew Soo, Seafood in Mini Puff Pastry,  Mini Exotic Fruit Tartlettes  and Mini French Pastries.
