Celebrating special moments in the sky

Emirates is currently the only commercial airline in the world officially serving Moët & Chandon, Veuve Clicquot, and Dom Pérignon onboard. Global airline exclusive agreements are in place until 2024, meaning that Emirates is the only international airline offering a ‘taste of the stars’ to passengers, inviting them to experience the sparkling sensations of the world’s most outstanding champagnes – at 40,000 feet.

Despite the well-documented world shortage of champagne, due to harsh weather and a reduced harvest in 2021, pandemic supply chain issues, and an explosion in demand for champagne globally, Emirates passengers remain well-served onboard with the finest selection of bubbles available, ready to toast the festive season, special occasions, and the hope and promise of a new year.

On Emirates, Dom Pérignon is served in First Class across all global routes, Veuve Clicquot is served in Business Class on routes to the Americas, UK, and Europe, and Moët & Chandon is served in Business Class on routes to Africa, the Middle East, and Asia Pacific including Australasia.

Make your ‘revenge travel’ easy with the first-ever Filipino-owned booking app

The pandemic disrupted life and plans, there were “lost time” as millennial and generation Z would describe it. It was time away from friends and family, away from different pursuits – one of which is traveling. But as COVID-19 restrictions have started to ease, travel, once highly restrictive and prohibitive, has become possible again.

If there’s anything better than traveling again, it’s the build-up. Daydreaming of the perfect destination, scrolling through unique places to stay, and browsing travel guides for the best hole-in-the-wall restaurants and local must-sees are all opportunities to start wanderlust before you’ve even packed your bags.

But when does the journey begin? While planning may sometimes be overwhelming – mapping out nitty gritty flights, connections, accommodation, and a whole lot of pit stops. But, for today’s travelers, expectations are always set by non-travel experiences. They want flexible solutions with a simple click experience.

Both local and foreign tourists are in for a treat as the first-ever Filipino-owned booking app is set to launch this year to help travelers explore the Philippines with ease. Happy Hotels will give you easy, accessible, and packed information about your favorite local destinations. They have teamed up with the best, budget-friendly, and most accessible hotels nationwide. Its features include but are not limited to comparing prices, finding hotels with your specific requirements, determining the best accommodation through the app’s rating and review system, and different activities you can do in your favorite destinations.

What’s even more exciting is that the app empowers local hotel owners to showcase what real “Filipino hospitality” is and at the same time gives the opportunity to local workers and communities. Happy Hotels aims to bring everyone a smile by giving a wide range of choices from hotels, resorts, restaurants, and destinations at the tip of your fingertips.

A celebration of the season of giving at these leisure destinations

In the spirit of the Yuletide season, Landco BeachTowns Club Laiya and CaSoBe in Batangas and Costa Azalea in Samal Island, Davao simultaneously lighted up their Christmas trees to signify hope and give back to the community through a fundraising initiative for the benefit of local school children.

Guests staying at the accommodations managed by Millennial Resorts in the Landco BeachTowns have the option to purchase and hang holiday ornaments at the Christmas tree of each development. Proceeds will go to the learning assistance of children enrolled in government-run elementary schools close to the properties.

The fundraising activity is part of Millennial Resorts’ efforts for the learning recovery of children as they return to face-to-face classes which were disrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic for more than two years.

The undertaking is aligned with Landco Pacific Corporation’s and Metro Pacific Investment Corporation’s sustainability commitment to help achieve the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable; and strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.

Christmas Tree Lighting was held simultaneously at Landco BeahTowns CaSoBe and Club Laiya, Batangas, and Costa Azalea, Samal Island, Davao.

For its BeachTowns in Batangas, Landco was recently awarded as the Most Sustainable Luxury Real Estate Developer in the Philippines in the 2022 Pan Finance International Award.  With its sustainable operations, Millennial Resorts is the first EDGE (Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies)-Certified resort hospitality project in the country, highlighting its Crusoe Cabins at CaSoBe.

Millennial Resorts manage the hospitality and leisure facilities that make Landco BeachTowns attractive tourist and leisure destinations. The properties feature unique resort accommodations: Crusoe Cabins, the upcycled trailers with modern amenities and furnishings at CaSoBe and Costa Azalea; Cocoons, the cylindrical sleeping pods complete with contemporary amenities at CaSobe, Club Laiya, and Costa Azalea; and Camperisti, the modern “glamper vans” right next to the beach at Club Laiya.

Leisure facilities operated by Millennial Resorts are Laiya Beach Club at Club Laiya and Aquaria Water Park with a three-story giant slide at CaSoBe and Costa Azalea; the Canopy, a multi-purpose event space at CaSoBe; and Captain Barbozza restaurant and bar.  Soon to rise is The Isle — the venue for events at Club Laiya; and Colony, a beachside co-working space.

As a way to thank its guests for their participation, every purchase of the Christmas ornament entitles them to an entry for a chance to win the raffle draw prize of a complimentary stay on their next trip.
