On November 25, 2023, Pico de Loro Cove officially ushered in the Christmas season with a festive tree lighting ceremony held at Pico Beach. The event was led by Pico de Loro Beach and Country Club Chairwoman Ms. Elizabeth T. Sy, Pico de Loro Beach and Country Club President Ms. Rita Dy, and SM Hotels and Conventions Corporation Senior Vice President for Operations Mr. Walid Wafik.
A Sea of Holiday Cheer
This year’s Christmas theme, “Joys of the Sea,” was brought to life by a 30-foot Christmas tree adorned with colorful sea creatures. The tree was handmade and locally sourced by a small team led by Pico de Loro Cove’s very own Housekeeping Supervisor and Chief Designer Mr. Florencio Garcia, together with the Engineering team led by Chief Engineer Paul King. Other holiday decorations displayed at the hotel and Beach and Country Club were also carefully handcrafted.
A Magical Evening
The tree-lighting ceremony was a magical evening filled with music, laughter, and holiday cheer. Guests enjoyed a performance by QU4TRO who captivated them with Christmas music. There was also a sale of the festive Craftmas with Love products, all handcrafted by the Housekeeping Team with proceeds to be gifted to Bulihan Elementary School to purchase computers for the students.
The giant Christmas tree at Pico de Loro Cove, a towering beacon of holiday spirit, is a symbol of the joy and positivity that the season brings. It is also a testament to the creativity and dedication of the people who worked hard to create it. The tree is a must-see for anyone looking for a truly magical Christmas experience.
