Woo her with fine wine, Ecuadorian flowers and a helicopter ride over Manila bay before sunset
Emperor Shah Jahan built the Taj Mahal for his third wife 300 years ago. In 1936, King Edward VIII abdicated the English throne to prove his love for two-time divorcee, American socialite Wallis Simpson. In Indecent Proposal, David Murphy (Woody Harrelson) agreed to his wife Diana (Demi Moore) spending a night with business mogul John Gage (Robert Redford) in exchange for one million dollars only to give it all up for a save-the-hippos charity fund in the end. In real or reel life, men have done the noble and the foolish in the name of love. What about you? What have you planned for your special someone in this month of hearts?
All That Romance
The Manila Hotel has everything planned out for you! This February, you can surprise your fiancée, wife or family with packages all tailor made to fit your budget. If you’re a Prestige member, your party can stay in the Grande Dame’s Sunset, Sunrise, Tower, Veranda or Intramuros suites (Php14,500 nett) and avail of the hotel’s “Nostalgia with Love” promotion. This includes breakfast for two at Café Ilang-Ilang, massage for one at the Spa, a bouquet of flowers and pralines. The “Grande Dame’s Heart” package (Php20,000 nett) offers, in addition, an evening of love songs with David Pomeranz as you enjoy a sumptuous dinner at the Tent City. Thereafter relax in a Superior Deluxe room and enjoy the hotel’s various amenities.
The Ultimate Valentine’s Gift
For that “wow” factor, you can choose from two high end room packages. The gentleman who avails of the “Say I Do” package (Php500,000 nett) opts for class and an enthusiastic display of affection. Imagine an overnight stay in the newly refurbished Mac Arthur suite complete with his and hers butlers to wait on you while you enjoy your three-course private in-room dining as you converse over a harpist’s strings or a flutists’ notes. Surprise her with Ecuadorian roses at dinner’s end and a water color portrait,too! Romantic turn down amenities from the hotel’s skilled chocolatiers and personalized wine glasses are also available. Arrive and leave the hotel in style on board a chauffeur-driven luxury car for that extra “oomph” and you’ll surely get a resounding “yes” to your proposal.
What would you give in the name of love? A box of chocolates, a piece of jewelry, a love letter, perhaps? For some these gestures will suffice but for a select few, there is no limit. Aptly called “Sky’s the Limit”, Manila Hotel’s ultimate romantic package includes a piece of heaven and then some. Whether it’s for a proposal, a romantic stay or a renewal of vows, this is the perfect package for you. An overnight stay at the luxuriously appointed Presidential Suite awaits the special guests who will have his and hers butlers on 24 hour duty. Amaze her with a 15-minute romantic helicopter ride over Manila Bay before sunset while your five-course dinner is being set up in the room. Drink champagne in your personalized wine glasses by Calligraffi as a harpist plays sweet music. Receive his and hers cufflinks and stud earrings from Jewelmer, a floral bouquet arrangement by renowned florist Rachy Cuna, bespoke perfume from Dior, made-to-measure modern barong from Jo Rubio, Ecuadorian roses, a valentine gift from Victoria’s secret, his and hers massage and a host of other extravagantly beautiful things including a Rolls Royce ride. A priest and pastor will also be present for a renewal of vows ceremony, should you wish. The price? A cool million.
If you’ve got literary or musical inclinations, you may want to join the hotel’s love letter and song writing competitions. Know more about the mechanics and the prizes in http://bit.ly/TMHLoveInPenAndPaper and http://bit.ly/TMHLoveAndRhythm .
No matter the cost or lack thereof, the most important thing is to have love that is pure and true. Have a meaningful Valentine’s Day everyone!
