Davao City’s premier hotel, the Apo View Hotel, continues to prove its legacy as Davao’s true home of heritage and hospitality as they carry on their tradition of celebrating the city’s grandest festival that pays tribute to the rich and colorful culture of the Dabawenyos, the bountiful harvest and everything that is good in the City.
Year after year, the Apo View Hotel showcases the best of what Kadayawan Festival has to offer by bringing in all the colorful sights, lively sounds and the blissful vibe of the festivities inside the premises of the hotel. Hotel guests who stayed and dined at the Apo View during this week-long celebration were treated with in-house festivities to feel the vibe and spirit of Mindanao’s grandest Festival.
Upon entering the premises of the Apo View Hotel, guests are welcomed by a beautiful centrepiece adorned and filled by the symbols of Kadayawan Season – the bountiful harvest, the fresh fruits and the colorful flowers. Think of anything about Kadayawan, they’re all there. These are sights and sounds depicting the festive colors, cheerful sound and jovial spirit of the celebration – all gathered inside the hotel.
