A Christmas Journey at the Heart of Davao

Guest of honor lights up Marco Polo Davao 


Marco Polo Davao formally starts the most wonderful time of the year with its Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony.

“This Christmas will be a very special Christmas indeed especially for us in Marco Polo Davao as we celebrate a milestone this December—our 20th anniversary which is exactly a month and a day from today. Central to our celebration this year are the true Heart of Davao—the people,” said Marco Polo Davao’s General Manager.

The hotel’s opening team former Financial Controller Armenio Lorenzo, former Purchasing Manager Genette Lon, former Executive Chef Ed Tuason, former Executive Secretary Jorie Pascual, Director of Sales Pam Villegas, Executive Housekeeper Sally Tungpalan and Assistant Director of Sales Loreta Jabilles lead the ceremonial lighting.




The Hotel building and Lobby was dressed up with the theme “A Christmas Journey” which was designed by Marco Polo Davao's very own florist, Mr. Dionelo Balofinos. Ornaments in emerald and gold were decorated in the 12-feet sized Christmas tree and Hotel hallway.
