Manila, 07 November 2018 – Diamond Hotel Philippines ushered in the holiday season with its traditional Christmas Tree Lighting event of its 25-foot tall Christmas tree at the hotel lobby last night. This year’s theme is set to bring your holiday dream to a reality. Transformed to a dreamy wonderland, the hotel’s eye-catching Christmas tree and elegant interiors are decked out with sparkling crystals, festive Christmas balls accentuated by blush, red and golden hues.

Graced by the winners of the 2018 Ms Earth beauty pageant and highlighted by the performances of Bayanihan, The Philippine National Folk Dance Company, as they danced to the tunes of the season in addition to Christmas music by the Pansol Choir. Santa Claus with his famous red bag full of goodies was on hand to greet guests.

General Manager Vanessa Suatengco shares the hotel’s holiday inspiration, “Our inspiration for this year’s celebration is more about making dreams and wishes come true. Aside from the whimsical decorations, decadent treats and delightful savories, we want to lift up the spirit of Christmas by becoming an instrument of joy to our guests through our impeccable service and holiday offers. And of course, we also want to give back to the community so we are spreading holiday cheers to our chosen charity Kanlungan ni Maria.”
