Shangri-La at the Fort Manila has been a favorite metropolitan destination since it opened in 2015. Located in the heart of Bonifacio Global City, this luxe hotel offers world-class accommodations and mouth-watering fare at their in-house restaurants.
This holiday season, the 576-room hotel transformed into a North Pole Wonderland in the most sustainable way. Aside from celebrating the yuletide season in a blue-and-silver festive fashion, Shangri-La at the Fort Manila aims to “raise further environmental awareness and preservation among Taguig City public school educators and students” in partnership with the WWF-Philippines. Want to be part of the program? Purchase a wooden ornament for only P300 and hang it on Shangri-La’s refurbished wooden tree or take it home to your own tree.
Aside from this sustainable approach to celebrating the holidays, here are five incredibly delicious reasons to bring your loved ones to Shangri-La at the Fort Manila.
