Holiday 2023: Waterfront Davao whips up the sweetest Christmas magic

Christmas has never been sweeter. Waterfront Insular Davao creates a whimsical wonderland in candy colors for the Holidays. But what's beyond the sweetest eye candy decors is even more magical. 

At the Christmas tree lighting ceremony, Ali Banting, Waterfront Insular Davao hotel manager said, "Tonight, we gather to celebrate not only the sweetness and magic of the Christmas season but also a very special partnership that fills our hearts with hope and purpose. It is a privilege and an honor to stand before you and pay tribute to the remarkable partnership between Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao and the House of Hope Foundation for Kids with Cancer."

Cheers to the holidays!

For fifteen years now, Waterfront Insular Hotel's remains committed to share the joy and love of the Holidays and beyond to the young warriors of the House of Hope Foundation for Kids with Cancer. This year, the hotel launches three initiatives that aim to raise funds for the children of the House of Hope Foundation:

1. The "Christmas Gift-Together" initiative, a room promotion where a portion of the proceeds from every room booked will be channeled directly to the House of Hope Foundation. By choosing to stay at Waterfront Insular Davao, guests become part of this wonderful cause.

2. The "Letters to Santa's Elves" program invites everyone to participate in a heartwarming tradition. At the hotel lobby is a donation mailbox where guests can drop their holiday wishes and donations for the children. Kind words and contributions will bring smiles to the faces of the young heroes.

3. In the "Adopt a Gift" program, Waterfront Insular Hotel with its valued clients and partners will work together to fulfill the simple wishes of the kids of the House of Hope Foundation. The small gifts will be tokens of everyone's love and support, letting the children know that they are not alone in their journey.
