Discovery Suites embraces the Yuletide spirit

DISCOVERY Suites Manila, Philippines marked the start of Christmas with a star-filled tree lighting event. Guests and employees alike excitedly waited for the 20-foot tall Christmas tree to light up the hotel. 

“Inspired by the theme A Starry Christmas, our aim is to ignite a spark of happiness and hopefully encourage our guests to spread the yuletide cheer everywhere they go.” announced Leeds Trompeta, General Manager of Discovery Suites. True to its promise, kids and kids-at-heart cheerfully wandered in the lobby admiring the gingerbread train display where varied choices of gift ideas may be seen. The event was graced by the ADB Chorale singing well-loved Christmas songs, corporate clients, and media guests.

The highlight of the night was the launch of Waves for Water, an international organization that aims to provide clean, potable water to every single person, as Discovery Suites’ new corporate social responsibility. 

“In more ways than one, Christmas serves as a reminder for all of us to shed light on the lives of others, especially those who need it the most. We are all fortunate that we get to enjoy good food with our loved ones in the comfort of our home while others do not even have potable water readily available in their barangay.” shares Trompeta. Discovery Suites’ donation of PHP 30,000 can provide 12 water filters to 1,200 people. 

The partnership was sealed with a water toast among Discovery Suites’ top management and Waves for Water representatives – Carlo Delantar, Philippines’ Country Director and JenicaDizon, Philippines’ Director of Affairs.
