As we close out another year riding out the pandemic, it’s high-time for a well-deserved R&R. It feels like a true Christmas miracle that the country has been put into a more lenient Alert Level 2, affording every Filipino with a little more freedom to celebrate life the way we used to. The reopening of hotels to leisure stays and more relaxed restrictions to kids are reasons enough to celebrate this holiday season.
The country’s premier integrated leisure destination, Resorts World Manila (RWM), offers a variety of family staycation deals for Grand Fiesta Manila all in one place. Whether you are looking for kid and family-friendly activities, holiday buffet packages, or a calming, authentic Japanese experience, RWM provides its guests unlimited options for safer intimate holiday gatherings. Here are some fun activities for the whole family to enjoy this season.
Crowd-favorite buffet at Marriott Cafe
One of the things we missed during this pandemic is dining in and buffets.

The special Christmas day lunch and dinner are available for only Php 3,200 nett per person, with a Chef’s Highlight of Luxe Brunch Pan Seared Goose Liver and Waffles served with strawberry gel, maple balsamic glaze, and show-stopping Lechon Grande, a Christmas celebration must-have.
