Conrad Manila lights up to an ‘Amazing Christmas’


WITH the spirit of this year’s holiday season shining like the first ray of sunlight after a spell of gloom, it was more than blue and white light bulbs that were lit at the recent Christmas tree lighting ceremony at Conrad Manila.

“The courage, the passion and the sense of purpose of our people simply radiate and dazzle, just like the beautiful simplicity of our Christmas tree, and that gives us the joy of having a great and wonderful Christmas season,” said Conrad Manila general manager Linda Pecoraro during the meaningful ceremony at the Pasay City hotel’s main lobby. “We share the warm glow of a memorable journey to the hearts and minds of loyal patrons, guests and our team members.”

Pecoraro added that the lighting ceremony of the 16-foot sparkling Christmas tree “underscores the inspiring charm of the holidays, perfectly coinciding with Conrad Manila’s fifth year of operations, and the tales of courage and resiliency that we have all experienced especially in the last two years.”

Present on-site for the ceremony was an intimate circle of invitees who were all wearing masks. Guests of honor included Hon. Antonino Calixto, representive of Pasay Lone District; Imelda Calixto-Rubiano, Pasay City mayor; Hon. Norman Mohamad, ambassador of Malaysia; Teresita Sy-Coson, vice chairman of SM Investment Corp.; and Hans Sy, chairman of the executive committee of SM Investment Corp.
