Dusit Davao proudly presents a vibrant tapestry of festivities for Kadayawan this year, weaving together the hotel’s dedication to culture, culinary delights, and community partnerships.
GM Christoph Kuch, in his welcome message, said, “We are very happy to be taking part in the celebrations lined up by the city, at the same time creating hotel experiences ideal for the festival season. This year, it is our pleasure to be partnering with Niñofranco, Philippine Eagle Foundation, and Pilgrim in giving our guests a Kadayawan treat. Dubbed as Tapestry of Festivities, our Kadayawan activities are where tradition meets celebration.”
Dabawenyo designer Wilson Limon remains a partner for this year, showcasing his captivating Ninuno collection at Dusit Gourmet throughout August. The 2023 Niñofranco collection takes inspiration from the Spanish influence and the rich Mindanaoan culture, paying tribute to the clothing of our Filipino ancestors. Elevating familiar designs with Ikat and Inaul fabrics, along with intricate hand embroidery and beadwork, this collection was recently showcased in Vienna and will soon travel to Japan.
In line with their commitment to supporting local communities and educating the youth about our national bird, the hotel has partnered with the Philippine Eagle Foundation for “Learn with Malaya.” This interactive session for kids, held on August 19 at the Lumpini Jr. Ballroom, includes storytelling, eagle mask coloring, talks on eagle behaviors, games, and a meet-and-greet with our beloved mascot, Malaya.
