Okada Manila – A vibrant Christmas 2022

Okada -Christmas Village 2022

Okada Manila is one of the best hotels I have been to so far. Since the beginning of my journey as a travel vlogger on Youtube, my first experience in this hotel has been very unforgettable. “5-star” is an understatement of how great this place is. From the pink elegant interior, the well-put details in each corner of the walls and the ceilings, the stunning modern architecture, the very fun, and sleek casino and mall, to the friendly and attentive crew. Oh, how could I forget the great restaurants they have here too? Especially the Medley Buffet! Everything is just perfect and must be experienced by everyone! To add more exciting things about this they announced some events for the season. This includes the reopening of the grand fountain show, the Noel Bazaar, and the opening of Okada Manila Christmas village! How can things get any better than this?

The Grand Fountain Show

Meet Manila’s grand new landmark. The Fountain, which is the size of 50 Olympic-size swimming pools, captivates audiences with its choreographed water, light, and sound performances. Just recently, Okada Manila gave families and kids something to remember in the years coming. Using Lana Del Rey’s and Luciano Pavarotti’s music, the colorful fountain show became more captivating for every visitor to watch. I can hear the children screaming in excitement with every syncing of water in the beat and harmony of the songs.

The Fountain was open 365 days a year prior to the pandemic. Guests of all ages can now enjoy its evening shows beginning at 6 PM to 10 PM for FREE daily! The Fountain also illuminates the venue with high-fidelity speakers, entertains with over 2,000 lights, and delights with high-powered jets that can create their own gorgeous water presentation. Moreover, going around the vicinity, I noticed that there were a lot more shops that opened in its mall. What else can you ask for more? These experiences are additions to my reasons why I love Okada Manila!

The Noel Bazaar

I have been to a lot of Bazaars but Noel Bazaar in Okada Manila is by far the star-studded and fanciest I’ve been to! Before we enter, we were welcomed by a choir singing Yuletide songs as if they were caroling for us. The event started with the management’s and ambassadors’ ribbon cutting. I saw familiar faces such as Rhian Ramos and Rabiya Mateo. They both look prettier in person! Rabiya holds the Morena-Filipina beauty while Rhian is the Mestiza bombshell. We were also entertained by a special performance of a newly rising Filipina girl group called Black Ace. Takes me back to my more youthful days! hehe

There were a lot of stalls you can find that sell furniture, clothes, skin care products, jewelry, shoes, and a lot more! If you feel tired and hungry, you can find a food court area in the middle of the venue. You can dine in as there are tables and chairs in the area, however, make sure to clean as you go (CLAYGO) after the snack. Coffee, pastries, dumplings, different kind of street foods and some frozen goods to go are available. If you want to shop and visit, Noel Bazaar is running this year on the following venues and schedules:

Okada Manila – Nov 11-13, 2022

Filinvest Tent Alabang – Nov 18-20, 2022

World Trade Center – Nov 25-30, 2022

Filinvest Tent Alabang – Dec 16-18, 2022

The Christmas Village

The Pandemic robbed so much joy, time, and enjoyment from us. Now that it’s starting to ease down and things are almost getting back to normal, Okada Manila is making sure to give a little of what was gone to everyone. The facility illuminated its magnificent Christmas Tree in the Fountain Foyer, which was attended by media guests and visitors as well as Okada Manila’s top management. The 38-foot Christmas tree was dazzling, inspired by a magical “Whimsical Dreamland” filled with bright lights and marvelous decorations. The lighting ceremony was followed by the unveiling of an enchanting Christmas Village and a magical Light Show at Okada Manila’s newest events venue, the Crystal Pavilion. Patrons at the Christmas Village can encapsulate priceless experiences by using interactive photo booths that feature various holiday motifs.

Okada Manila is definitely the place to be for family, friends, lovers, and signles this season, with thrilling staycation packages, festive food options and treats, and shopping thrills in its diverse retail outlets for fabulous gift hauls. If you want to witness the nostalgic Yuletide ambiance of Okada’s Christmas Village, you may visit them until January 1 for free.
