Sparkles of Christmas 2016 tree ligHting ceremony kicks off aS makati shangri-La offers a sparkle of Surprises

What images come to mind when we hear the word "Christmas?” A child with eyes wide open in awe of the sparkles that come with the season. Glitter is everywhere, and the lights twinkling amidst the vast night sky. Christmas is the smell of hot cocoa on cold mornings while curling up beside a gigantic tree. Let Makati Shangri-La turn these images into reality with The Grand Getaway: Holiday Sparkle.

Guests can travel back in time and revisit history at the Ayala Museum with the hotel’s complimentary day pass, and then be treated to a sumptuous breakfast feast at the Circles Event Café. Horizon Deluxe Suite guests can enjoy private check-in/out from the convenience of their rooms, exclusive access to the Horizon Lounge where they can delight in evening cocktails and canapés with wonderful view of the city skyline. All weekend stays will receive the benefit of early check-in and late check-out until 4pm on the day of departure.

Makati Shangri-la hopes you can join them in these activities for the kids and the kids at heart. Each dining experience is sure to bring you back to your most loved Noche Buena memories with your family. As they say, the best gift around the Christmas tree is the presence of family wrapped in love. And your Makati Shangri-La Family is here to stay.
