Maligaya ang Pasko sa Bayview Park Hotel

Maligaya ang Pasko sa Bayview Park Hotel

How do you feel about this story?


Christmas is a much-anticipated holiday in the Philippines, do you agree? Everyone is getting ready for the holidays and what better way to spend this season than by staying in a hotel. I would do it if I had the means to. So, I am now checking on the best hotels where we can spend the holidays and Bayview Park Hotel Manila always comes to mind. Last November 23, 2023, Bayview Park Hotel Manila had one ceremonious Christmas Tree Lighting to usher the Yuletide carols this year.

Check out my Reel here:

The event will be led by Mr. Eugene Yap, General Manager of Bayview Park Hotel, with special guests from the local government of the City of Manila, headed by Mayor Honey Lacuna, Vice Mayor Yul Servo, and DOT-NCR Director Ms. Sharlene
Zabala-Batin and other key government officials.

This year they decided to celebrate the authentic Filipino spirit with the theme “Maligaya ang Pasko sa Bayview”. If you ask me, this is one bright idea as I would want my kids to keep abreast of this kind of celebration, Filipino style.

During the event, employees entertained us with their talents and we were served the traditional staple “simbang gabi” breakfast treats, such as puto bumbong, bibingka, and other local delicacies paired with the my favorite flavor of the “kapeng barako” (brewed coffee).

Today, as you visit and enter the main lobby of the Bayview Park Hotel Manila, the area is fully adorned with the “parols”
(star-shaped lanterns) which are made from bamboo frames, covered with colorful paper. It holds deep cultural and religious significance, embodying the spirit of hope, unity, and goodwill. With a rich heritage spanning decades, the Christmas Tree Lighting
is a beautiful display of pride and resilience, reminding us of the importance of embracing diversity and coming together as one nation.

The “Belen’” on the other hand, is retelling the Nativity Story, depicting the birth of Jesus Christ. It is an essential Filipino Christmas décor and a real reminder of the true meaning of season.

Adding local flair, the “belen” is done with the local materials for the stable with designs from images wearing Filipino attire. To spice up the Filipino charm in the venue, local ornaments are a must. Handcrafted decors made from various native materials that exude the distinctive Filipino touch and ingenuity is necessity to be seen, such as angels fashioned into stars, flowers, or even the popular “bahay kubo,” the “banig” weaves, and jeepney frame are basic visual display at the entrance hallway of the hotel.

Even the “bayong” bag, the native “sombrero” and “parol” are part of the highly integrated ancestral Filipino lifestyle.

Moreover, on Christmas and New Years Eve, the hotel is offering Buffet Dinner at a very affordable rate of Php1,399 net per person while being serenaded by the “Youth Harmonic Ensembles”. Every guest will be delighted with music and delectable food that will make this an unforgettable night to remember.
