Seda Atria officially launched their holiday attraction through a Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony last December 2, 2016 at the Misto Restaurant.
The ceremonial lighting was initiated by Seda Atria’s Hotel Manager, Joseph Del Rosario together with Iloilo City Tourism Officer, Junel Ann Divinagracia.
It is the 2nd time of Seda Atria to organize a tree lighting ceremony to welcome the Holiday season and according to Del Rosario it is their humble way of saying thank you to the hotel patrons’ trust and support that they have been giving Seda Atria.
The theme for this year is “Alibangbang” – a mixture of gold, silver and bronze highlighting locally made products such as burlap (jute sack), buri (taffia), nito (rattan) and the world-renowned “Hablon” fabric which is a heritage industry of Iloilo.
Guests were then served a Christmas-themed cocktail buffet of local and international favorites prepared by their very talented Kitchen team led by Chef Albert Ledesma, Seda Atria’s OIC Sous Chef.
The Tree lighting ceremony was then followed by performances from the Kinaadman Chorale of John B. Lacson Foundation Maritime University, Molo, Inc.
