Known for its top-class business reputation, Marco Polo Plaza Cebu showed its fun side in a summertime party aptly named Drink, Dance, & Dip at the hotel’s El Viento Restaurant and Pool Bar.
Guests were treated to free-flowing summer cocktails, dancing music, and smoky barbecue dishes.
The fun event was set up by the side of the pool with its inviting crystal blue water that was just too difficult to resist. Many gave in to the temptation of a refreshing dip.
Highlight fun side
Lara Scarrow, Marco Polo Plaza Cebu Director of Sales and Marketing, said the event served to highlight the El Viento Restaurant and Pool Bar that often gets overlooked because of their reputation as a business hotel.
She added that they want to show guests this part of the hotel where they can relax, dine, drink, and even take a swim. The Cafe Marco buffet already includes free use of the pool so families and friends can have fun after dining at the restaurant.
Drink, Dance & Dip was a cluster pool party that happened simultaneously in all Marco Polo properties in the Philippines, including Marco Polo Plaza Cebu, Marco Polo Ortigas Manila, and Marco Polo Davao.
Guests donned chic summer outfits over their swimwear in happy compliance with the invitation to drink, dance, and dip.
Free-flowing summer drinks
DJ Jen Weigel Sarmiento and DJ Kirby Yu provided dance music while guests enjoyed the food and bar.
The free-flowing summer drinks included frozen mojitos, blue daiquiris, and pina coladas. There was also a Belvedere and Moet Chandon Bar, while Pocari Sweat provided maximum hydration.
Drinks were paired with savory bar bites such as chicken fajitas, fish cakes, spicy skewers, and assorted kebabs.
Just as the sun was about to set, the music transitioned to sexy Latino beats as the Phoenix Band set the tone for some dancing and lots of laidback fun.
Havaianas inflatable flip floats provided some added color and lounging opportunities.
Earlier, hosts Paulo Varela and Maria Gigante mentioned that some prizes were hidden in the pool and indeed before the night ended, all prizes were found and claimed. They included two-night stays at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila and Marco Polo Davao. Thrown in for good measure were gift certificates for El Viento Restaurant and Pool Bar.
Flow Arts Cebu provided entertainment in the form of amazing fire dances. One such performance was held at the bar’s roof to the delight of party guests.
Towards the end of the evening, awards were given out for Best Half-Dressed lady and gentleman. The winners were Patty Taboada with her sexy cut-out one piece from Cesa and Neil San Pedro with his laid back and chill get-up. Both won an overnight stay at Marco Polo Plaza and a flip float from Havaianas.
Indeed, it was a summer party like no other with about 200 guests enjoying Drink, Dance & Dip.
