Resorts World Manila Launches Grand Fiesta Manila 2017 For Yuletide Season Celebrations

Our country's Premier entertainment and tourism destination, Resorts World Manila has once again launched the annual Grand Fiesta Manila 2017 (GFM). It was an honor to be selected and experienced the "fantasy funfair" themed festivities together with other CBS Bloggers. On its 8th year, guests get to enjoy various holiday promos in dining, hotel accommodations, and selected retail outlets. I'm so excited to share with you what I had tasted for this Fantasy funfair!

A+ FOR BELMONT HOTEL

In the previous years, I checked-in to Maxim's Hotel. It was grand and I couldn't forget the amazing life I had during my short-day stay. But for this year, I came to experience an A+ service from Belmont Hotel Manila

Aside from the scenic view of Manila skyline, Belmont Hotel Manila offers travelers the chance to discover true relaxation while waiting for their flights or maybe just do some short staycation.The Hotel is just 5-minute walk away from Ninoy Aquino International Airport’s Terminal 3 which is very comfortable and hassle-free for visitors. Not to mention the Runway Manila footbridge got instagrammable backdrops and panoramas which every Millennials would be interested to do a pose.

And here's some good news for everyone! For the rest of the year, Belmont Hotel Manila offers a Flash Sale! With rates starting at PHP 4,000.00 net (room only), vacationers will surely enjoy the Capital while doing shopping or just visiting a friend or family members during Holiday rush. Personally, I love the intimate space I had in my room. Belmont got clean, comfy and luxurious beddings. The 4K package entitles guests to use the hotel’s rooftop swimming pool and Jacuzzi, and the fitness center and sauna. But if you wish to enjoy sumptuous breakfast buffet of the hotel, you can add PHP 928 to the package.

PASSIONATE THANKSGIVING DINNER

Not my first time on a Thanksgiving dinner with a huge number of Media and Blogger friends but during Resorts World Manila's version, I was lucky to share a Cantonese table with the Country's top Media and Bloggers personalities at Passion Restaurant of Maxim Hotel.

The special event was graced with some Entertainment personalities such as It's Showtime's Tawag Ng Tanghalan's Finalists Sam Mangubat and Froilan Canlas, Comedians Alex Calleja and much more.

CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG

Our 2-day itinerary ended up with a bang! Not a fireworks display but with the world famous play, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (CCBB). I won't forget the playful characters of the show. There is Gian Magdangal who plays Caractacus Potts with his children Albert Silos and Isabeli Elizalde who play Jeremy and Jemima Potts respectively.But these main Characters who executed their roles passionately, are not the scene stealer of the show. Here's a spoiler, you should be prepared to laugh out loud with the characters of Mako Alonso and Reb Atadero. This beloved British family musical, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang runs from October 21 until November 12.
