Grand Fiesta Manila season is here! 2020 may have brought many distraught and uncertainties, but Resorts World Manila’s (RWM) signature Yuletide celebration continues to bring thrills and excitement to guests and patrons. As RWM celebrates its 11th year as the premier integrated tourist destination in the country, it brings with it 11 Thrills of Christmas with a line-up of events and activities starting November 11.
One of the highlights for this year’s festivities is the completion of renovations and the Garden Wing’s physical enhancement to complement the newly-opened Grand Wing. RWM offers twice the thrill with bigger, brighter, and better space and services such as renovated façade and interiors, refreshed gaming and mall areas, and enhanced safety and sanitation protocols, to highlight a few.
By the end of November, two five-star hotels—Sheraton Manila Hotel and Hilton Manila—will begin accepting staycations to accommodate leisure travelers. As mandated by the Department of Tourism, RWM implements a series of health and precautionary measures to ensure guests’ safety, comfort, and convenience. Aside from the staycation offers, several special accommodations and testing packages are also available to welcome guests looking for a safe and relaxing stay. Holiday Inn Express Manila, Savoy Hotel Manila and Belmont Hotel Manila have a wide range of choices that assure top quality accommodation options for every preference, need, and budget.
Paying tribute to the most wonderful time of the year, RWM introduces BAD Burgers, eight new delectable burger concoctions where the world of pastry is fused with the world of burger in one sandwich. A variety of BAD Burgers or Bad-Ass Burgers are now available with an introductory price of P388.00 apiece.
Guests can enjoy three flavors of BAD Burgers in RWM signature restaurants’ Casa Buenas, Grand Bar, and Grand Wing Cafe namely Donut Burger, a combination of sweet and savory flavors with glazed donut, Angus Beef patty topped with cheddar cheese, bacon, and fried egg; Ensaymada Burger, with Pampanga sweet chorizo and Angus Beef with fried egg, red onions, and bacon marmalade enveloped in a classic Filipino sweet dough pastry covered with butter, sugar, and cheese; and Tapsilog Burger that brings familiar flavors of Angus Beef patty, fried egg, Pickled Papaya with a splash of pinakurat aioli in Garlic Rice Cake. Sheraton Manila’s S Kitchen recreated the soft and fluffy Ube Cheese pastry with their Ube Cheese-sig Burger filled with sisig patty and pickled red onion. Another must-try is Oori’s burger version of Korean pancake, the Pajeun Galbi Burger with Tteokgalbi marinated beef patty, sesame coleslaw, and pickled radish. Okura at home offers a different take on Japanese Wagyu with its Wagyu Charcoal Bun Burger with a layer of Wagyu Beef patty, Nori, and Kinshi Tamago in Charcoal bun. Pretzel Angus Burger of Marriott Hotel Manila gives classic pretzel a twist with a serving of Pure Certified Angus Beef Patty with Cheddar Cheese, lettuce, sauerkraut, tomatoes, complemented with sweet Bavarian mustard and German Gewüz Curry Ketchup all on a special pretzel bun. Hilton Manila’s Char Siu Chicken Pao Burger is a spinoff of Chinese Baozi that comes with char sui grilled chicken fillet topped with lettuce, pickled cabbage and a tangy beetroot mayonnaise on a fried pao bun.
Retail and Social Responsibility
Like the previous years, the Newport Mall will have special holiday offers for shoppers and diners, especially on 11.11 and 12.12, the one-day-only pre-holiday and Christmas sales on participating outlets. Now is also a good time to eat out and help out at Newport Mall dining outlets as they will be providing a hearty meal to medical frontliners of Pasay City General Hospital for every Php1,000 spent on participating dining outlets.
Christmas is the season of giving back, and another corporate social responsibility effort slated is the “RWM Christmas Thrills and Cheers.” In celebration of its 11th anniversary, RWM, together with the partner hotels—Marriott Hotel Manila, Okura Manila, Hilton Manila, Sheraton Manila Hotel, Belmont Hotel Manila, Savoy Hotel Manila, and Holiday Inn Express Manila—will be giving Noche Buena meal boxes to 11 beneficiaries come December.
Running almost two months long, Grand Fiesta 2020 promises a slew of exciting offers and thrilling events the whole family can enjoy including 11 Days of Christmas Thrills, Newport Mall’s PayMaya Mission, LOVE Project, and Grand Staycation Countdown among others.
