December 19, 2015 in Hotels by cipcipTrip

In its first grand New Year’s celebration, the Harbor Garden Tent is transformed into the animated setting of the Carnival de Venezia (Carnival of Venice). An annual festival held in Italy that showcases elaborate costumes and ornate masks, the colorful setting is the stage for celebration of culture and dance.

As Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila rings in the New Year, follow its festive trail to the expansive marquee adorned with oversized maskaras and elegant floral centerpieces. The celebration features a culinary fair of barbecued specialties enhanced by signature Italian dishes that will awaken your palates. As 2015 winds down, Sofitel in its fine tradition of joie de vivre takes you to the New Year with lively entertainment care of featured musical acts: the 10-piece chamber orchestra, Manila String Machine and the 7-piece full band Brass Pas Pas Pas Pas.

Count down to midnight and marvel at the scenic view of the evening sky transformed into a palette of vibrant colors with Sofitel’s annual fireworks display enjoyed from the picturesque Harbor Garden Deck.

Be part of the celebration in your finest festive ensembles showcasing the artistic resonance of traditional Carnival de Venezia fashion. A special prize is in store for elegantly dressed guests in attendance.
