On special occasions, we would like to celebrate them with the people who matter most to us. I have celebrated several occasions in Sofitel Manila long before it was called that and I have always loved the place, besides the fact that it is the best resort in Metro Manila, the airy ambiance and homey feeling combined with warm people really make all the difference.
Chinese New Year, Valentine’s Day, Easter Holiday. Are you ready for these upcoming events? Have not planned or undecided? Think no further as Sofitel has something different to offer just for these special occasions.
Chinese New Year
Starting off with the upcoming Chinese New Year this Sunday. In celebration, Spiral has begun including specialty Chinese dishes in their daily buffet offering since last February 4. Dishes like Chinese Raw fish salad, fried scallop with XO chili sauce (to which everyone on the table agreed is a must-try), Bak Kut Teh noodle soup and roasted Peking duck. For that exclusive feel, you may book their private dining room. On February 10, a fashion show by Albert Andrada will happen during brunch. Of course, Dragon and Lion dance performance is a tradition thus also happening on the 9th (7-8:30pm) and 10th (11am-12:30pm).
Four days after Chinese New Year will be Valentine’s Day and I hope by now you folks have plans. But, if you haven’t, fret not. Of course Sofitel Manila has very special offerings for the upcoming hearts day.
Choices would be to dine at Spiral where the spread on the 13th and the 14th would include seared foie gras with strawberry and roasted prime ribs with morel sauce. Also to be included are chili crab, lobster fried rice, lobster laksa and Peking duck. For that romantic touch, there will be rose petals on the dishes and drinks. For an even more romantic night on the 14th, the couple can opt to have their 5-course set menu dinner served by a personal butler at the Sunset Bar or a Poolside Barbecue dinner to see some fireworks display.
For an even more elaborate celebration, why not check in to Sofitel and enjoy breakfast in bed, a bottle of champagne and chocolates and late check-out? While you are at it, book a massage at Le Spa! I am sure your significant other will love you so much for it. And for an ultimate splurge, go crazy and book Sofitel’s presidential suite called Imperial Residence. Now that is special! Check out my previous post here for photos.
Single this Valentine’s season? Sofitel Manila has Black Valentine’s for the singles. There will be a live entertainment to enjoy while enjoying Le Bar’s special cocktails or some glasses of Johnny Walker Double Black Label. Throw in Sofitel’s pralines and you are assured of a good time.
Spiral has a different offering for the Easter Weekend. On March 29-31, feast on turkey, gammon ham, Easter bunnies and candies with flowing sparkling wine and champagne. Sofitel will have an Easter egg hunt and lots of other games and prizes especially for the kids. Check-in during these dates and get two tickets for the Easter Egg Hunt with that.
What a line-up, right? Very exciting! I am sure these events will be a lot of fun. For inquiries on rates, reservations or more information, do not hesitate to contact Sofitel Manila.
