Celebrating the holidays, the Makati Shangri-La way!
This year might have been a roller coaster of unprecedented events but it’s never too late to create new unforgettable yuletide memories with your loved ones. From having a staycation to sharing sumptuous meals with your loved ones, feel totally at ease as the hotel aligned its hygiene protocols with the World Health Organization’s recommendations, as well as more stringent local regulations set out by the Philippine government.
The hotel group introduced the “Shangri-La Cares” commitment elevating their already rigorous hygiene and safety protocols for all properties worldwide. This promise comprises additional proactive and measured actions built upon already high hygiene and safety standards across the board. Makati Shangri-La has also been awarded a Safeguard Hygiene Excellence Certification in the concluded field audit held by Bureau Veritas (BV). Attaining this certification requires an extensive field audit of the arrival experience, in-room experience, public spaces, recreation facilities, restaurants, and people.

Sharing hope and love with our COVID-19 heroes
And this Christmas, spreading love and hope is all that we need. As a way of saying thank you to the COVID-19 heroes, Shangri-La Group in the Philippines worked collectively on a CSR initiative called, “A Heartfelt Joy of Christmas”. At the forefront of the Christmas lobby, there is a special set of trees called the “Trees of Hope” adorned with Christmas ball-shaped greeting card ornaments with messages for the COVID-19 frontliners.
And you can contribute to this cause as well. For only Php 250, you can get a special Gingerbread STAR cookie that comes with a greeting card where you can write your 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 with the frontline heroes from November 22 to December 28, 2020.
You wouldn’t want to miss the Christmas celebration, the Makati Shangri-La way. And whether it’s through staycations, festive dining, gifting ideas, and food takeaways, you can rest assured that your safety and well-being is still the top priority they have in mind as you all create wonderful memories.
