Gil Gacuma Jr. (The Philippine Star) - November 30, 2014 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - The Christmas season has started, and the metro is bustling with activity, as well as terrible traffic and frustrating crowds.

Located in busy Ortigas Center, The Malayan Plaza is a perfect spot for holiday staycationers, since malls and bazaars with Christmas crazy sales are just a few minutes’ walk from the hotel.

Christmas is a celebration of love, and the time when we celebrate Christ’s love. And we are very excited to share with guests what we have prepared for the holidays,”says general manager Ernie Baclayon.

Guests can take full advantage of the hotel’s many services and amenities as an alternative to a long trip out of town. Families, or a group of friends, can enjoy our amenities, services and special low Christmas season rates,” adds Maileen Liao, director of sales & marketing. “Our spacious rooms, including one- and two-bedroom suites, can accommodate up to a family of five. With the option to cook their favorite dishes, the kitchenette in the room is a plus.”

In vacation mode with family or friends, the swimming pool is one of the most fun spots. Located on the 33rd floor, the pool is the perfect answer to the city bustle. With an expansive deck area relaxing is the number one priority but, if you want to get some exercise, the pool is perfect for doing laps. Malayan Plaza also has a playroom for children.

From the 33rd floor, the restaurant lounge offers panoramic views of the Ortigas cityscape during buffet breakfast, or while guests enjoy lunch, lite meals, snacks or coffee.

The lobby holiday decorations are designed like a small playground for children and the young at heart. “Our Christmas decorations are more than embellishments and are meant for the guest to be part of by completely interacting with it,” Baclayon says.

The colorful playhouse is adorned with stuffed toys and illuminated by Christmas lights and a 20-ft Christmas tree. “Waiting in the lobby becomes playing in the lobby for our guests,” he says. 

Soon, the hotel will be selling cookies and other Christmas items to compliment the entire holiday experience, highlighted by Joys of Christmas promo. “is a package worth P3,799 nett for studio superior, P3,999 nett for studio twin deluxe room and P4,199 nett for one-bedroom deluxe. If you book a room, you also get free two Ride All You Can tickets to Star City, valid throughout the year,” Baclayon  says promo, which includes breakfast and free WiFi, runs until Jan. 8, 2015.
