Okada Manila: A holiday season filled with light and magic

Forbes 5-star integrated resort Okada Manila gears up for the Yuletide season with amazing events to add to the holiday festivities. It was “A Night of a Thousand Lights” as the property lit up its magnificent Christmas Tree at the Fountain Foyer, attended by Okada Manila’s top management and witnessed by media guests and property visitors. The 38-foot Christmas tree was a sight to behold, inspired by a magical “Whimsical Dreamland” filled with bright lights and marvelous decorations such as ornate white twigs, a fairytale window likened to that of a dwarf’s house, festooned with sparkly green garlands, and accentuated with clear and white beautiful Christmas balls, as well as dazzling fairy lights.

The lighting ceremony was followed by the launch of a quaint Christmas Village and a wondrous Light Show at the newest events place at Okada Manila, the Crystal Pavilion. Guests at the Christmas Village can capture precious memories via interactive photo booths that showcase different holiday themes like the Fairy Garden, Giant Gift Box and Mistletoe booth. They can also visit the “North Pole”, or sing with carolers via augmented and virtual reality. As for the Light Show, there are over 300,000 individual pixel mapped LEDs, with more than 300 separate digital controllers, creating a spectacular light show synchronized with magical Christmas tunes.

The events marked the roll-out of Okada Manila’s holiday offerings. Guests can enjoy the festivities beginning Nov. 18, 2022 and all throughout the Yuletide season.
