Feliz Hotel kicks off first-ever Christmas lighting ceremony

DECEMBER 1, 2023 – After a long preparation, Feliz Hotel Boracay finally unveiled their first ever Christmas Lighting Ceremony which they labeled “Opening of the Lights”. During the Executive Committee’s meeting, they were challenged by General Manager, Mr. Allan Chan, to flesh out the “Feliz” in the Christmas season.

After a series of deliberations, the team has finally procured decorations from various cities within the region and started putting up the ornaments last November 15, 2023.

It has been an exciting task for every department in Feliz Hotel since this will be the first lighting ceremony they have executed since the hotel started operating four years ago. It’s monumental since the hotel has been able to withstand the test of time including the Boracay closure and the pandemic.

Feliz Hotel Boracay officially welcomes the Christmas festivities with their Opening of the Lights.

The Opening of the Lights ceremony was held last December 1, 2023, and was packed with many Christmas activities which signal the start of the Yuletide season in the hotel. Elevating the ceremony’s opening, the Tribu Cagaycay did their tribal music beats that made waves and noise in D’Mall.
