The Christmas rush is upon us and as we rush through our list of things to do, don’t forget to put in some time for ourselves and for family.
Take them, for instance, to a hotel that is accessible to everything—from shops for that last-minute gift buying, cinemas to catch the latest flicks, to restaurants for satisfying different cuisine cravings.
When in Makati this Christmas season, New World Hotel is the perfect spot for a leisurely family staycation since it doesn’t take you too far from the places you need to visit to accomplish your Christmas wish list. The hotel, located directly across the Greenbelt lifestyle center, offers holiday staycation packages for families that want to experience Christmas in the city in a whole new way.
Yuletide Getaway packages are available until January 10 with a load of cool add-ons that make your stay merry and memorable. A Superior Room package gifts guests with a bottle of wine; a Deluxe Room stay comes with a bottle of wine and two movie passes to Ayala cinemas; while a Residence Club Deluxe room treats guests to a complimentary bottle of wine and Php1,000 shopping credits at Store Specialist Inc. shops. All check-ins come with a buffet breakfast for two adults and two children and complimentary Wi-Fi.
Food is also a part of the holiday experience. The hotel’s Café 1228 offers a buffet that includes Christmas favorites such as oven-roasted turkey with chestnuts and prunes and honey-glazed Hawaiian ham, along with festive and familiar holiday kakanin such as bibingka and puto Calasiao. The restaurant’s Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve dinner comes with one round of sparkling wine and standard drinks.
For sumptuous Chinese fare, New World Makati’s award-winning Jasmine restaurant has a lauriat consisting of 10-course set menus prepared by Chef Wong Kam, with signature dishes and traditional favorites such as Braised Abalone with Black Mushrooms and Pan-fried Scallop with Egg White and Black Truffle sauce. The special holiday meals are available on December 24, 25, and 31 and on New Year’s Day.
To fully enjoy the tastes of the holidays, sweets and treats are available at The Shop, located at the hotel lobby. There you can find an assortment of holiday confections such as fruit cakes and gingerbread men. Christmas hampers and gingerbread houses are also available to give away as gifts that come with a thoughtful and personal touch.
