Grand Hyatt Manila welcomes The Festive Season with a Grandiose Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

Grand Hyatt Manila officially sparked the beginning of the yuletide season as it recently held its anticipated annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at the hotel’s grand lobby. 

This year’s theme, Dreaming of a Grand Christmas showcases the hotel’s towering 24-foot Christmas tree, decorated in glittering silver and shades of teal. 

Grand Hyatt Manila’s general manager, Mr. Gottfried Bogensperger led the ceremonial affair with an inspiring speech about the true spirit of Christmas and the hotel’s initiatives to help communities in need. 

The illuminated grand lobby was serenaded with a medley of festive hymns by the powerful voice of Rachelle Gerodias and Qu4tro classical singers alongside an interpretative ballet performance with a play of lights by the Ellipsis dancers. 

The ceremony was hosted by one of the country’s best live event hosts, Issa Litton.

Grand Hyatt Manila’s sustainable commitment remained the highlight of the event. This year, the hotel continues to support its non-profit partner, Urban Program for Livelihood Finance and Training, or more commonly known as UPLiFT, with the production of hand-poured scented candles, made of natural wax infused with a special blend of essential oils. This bespoke candle collection is exclusively available at Florentine located at the ground level of the hotel. The initiative of Grand Hyatt and UPLift continues to provide sustainable sources of livelihood for various Philippine artisans to help in their day-to-day lives. 

To reinforce the hotel’s commitment to creating sustainable livelihood for people and communities in need, Grand Hyatt Manila has also collaborated with Punlaan School and Life Project for Youth (LP4Y) in opening holistic opportunities for deserving youth to prepare for sustainable employment. More than the financial support in education, students are able to broaden their knowledge and experience as well as develop their skills in hospitality and personal development through thoughtfully designed programs, on-the-job training, and workshops led by the Grand Hyatt Manila team.
