Makati Shangri-La invites you to a North Pole Wonderand: A Heartfelt Joy of Christmas!

The most wonderful time of the year is upon us again. As we fill the season with sparkling lights and gleeful cheers of hope and giving, Makati Shangri-La, Manila brings delightful festive offers for you to share with your loved ones and create unforgettable moments with. 


With great sensitivity during this time and desire to focus on a worthwhile cause as the year comes to a close, Shangri-La Group decided to refresh the previous year’s Christmas décor theme, “A North Pole Wonderland”. Makati Shangri-La, Manila welcomes guests once again to its illuminated, heartwarming Christmas sense of place, inspiring joy and hope, the gifts  which every spirit needs to receive.    

In the heart of the hotel’s grand lobby stands a 20-feet tall Christmas tree trimmed with glistening ornaments in red and gold.  North Pole will not be complete without some Polar Bear friends, Santa’s sleigh awaiting its passengers, and a special appearance of Father Christmas himself, Santa Claus. Guests will be able to spend moments with Santa on Christmas Eve, December 24 (12 p.m. to 3 p.m., and 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.) and on Christmas Day, December 25 (12 p.m. to 3 p.m.).  


At the forefront of the Christmas lobby, guests will find a special set of trees called “Trees of Hope”. Greeting card ornaments in the shape of Christmas balls with messages of inspiration and sweet dedications to the frontline heroes of 2020 adorn these trees. As a way of saying thank you, Shangri-La Group in the Philippines worked collectively on a CSR initiative called, “A Heartfelt Joy of Christmas”.   

For only Php 250, guests will receive a special Gingerbread STAR cookie that comes with a greeting card where they can write their thoughtful messages and hang on the Trees of Hope. Proceeds will go to KAAGAPAY "Protect our Healthcare Heroes” project of the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation (PDRF) which aims to bring immediate aid to healthcare professionals and hospitals that are front and center in fighting the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. You may participate in this worthwhile cause and share your own heartfelt joy of Christmas to the frontline heroes from November 22 to December 28, 2020.
