Philippine Plaza Manila seasonal celebrations

Bonjour and Mabuhay from Sofitel Philippine Plaza! On September 27, our beloved property was inundated by the waters of typhoon Pedring. This experience was truly a defining moment for us, as the Sofitel team came together to get our guests to safety and to thereafter begin the work of putting our house back in order. The Filipino spirit is indomitable, and the team’s sense of loyalty and commitment, unwavering. With unified effort, Sofitel Philippine Plaza successfully re-opened its doors and resumed operations on the 10th of October. As we look forward, we take this opportunity to sincerely thank you, our most valued guests, for your continued support over the past months. Now, it is time to continue doing what we do best: to serve you. In November, the new Beaujolais Nouveau arrives at Le Bar with a special wine and cheese treat. On the 17th, we celebrate the occasion with much fanfare, replete with authentic French fare and entertainment at the Harbor Garden Tent. This holiday season promises to be a truly magnifique one at Sofitel, as we have Christmas and New Year’s Eve offers you will surely enjoy. We look forward very much to sharing this precious season with you. On that note, I wish you all an amazing time as we end the good year that was 2011 – and celebrate a magnifique 2012 that is to come!
