The campaign touches on the different senses, a way to make sure that something suits your fancy. If you are a leisure traveler with varying interests or a family with different hobbies, you’d find a cultural haven at the Crimson Resort in Station Zero in Boracay. Art lovers can practice their hand in their dedicated arts room while fashion enthusiasts can shop local at the Crimson gift store. Foodies can revel in a tasting menu by Filipino chefs with local fares. And if you’re just looking to stay still, a traditional massage at their luxurious spa may just be what you’re looking for. This campaign touches on what you need while highlighting what the Filipinos are known for.



FASHION

Their is now the Live Love Local Shop is located at the Crimson gift store and is the result of the resort's partnership with talented local producers, featuring a number of stylish regional brands. For this leg, stylish apparel and accessories from Boracay's own Epitome of Eve and La Herminia Pina Weaving Industry from Aklan is available for sale. Consider these pieces something you can wear while on your holiday or something to take home with you as a sartorial memory of that trip.

Epitome of Eve has a bounty of prints and has richest robes perfect for however you need it. La Herminia Pina Weaving Industry also has delicate pieces and fabrications, most notably the piña, that put these pieces as everyday-wear more than just occasion-wear. Last May, Crimson hosted a fashion show with pieces from the brands.

Cuisine is such an integral part of any holiday.

We got to try a glimpse of this menu and it was absolutely everything you can expect from the experience. From Filipino staples like the litson manok, kare-kare, and sinuglaw, the Hapag MNL team sure put their spin on these classics and made them feel brand new. The welcome infusion of Auro Chocolates also elevated every plate to new heights. It truly is an experience worth tasting.

Those in need of serious pampering and stress relief can take their partner along for a traditional 90-minute Hilot massage or try the signature treatment at the AUM Spa. It's an experience that will happily reset both mind and body and, as a way of carrying home a tangible memory to cherish, guests also get a finely woven patadyong (native sash / wrap-around skirt) crafted by the Bagtasan Loom Weavers of Antique, along with a Wellness Healing kit from Marayo of Negros Occidental.

At the heart of this campaign, of course, is the dedication to highlight the best of being Filipino and the Philippines.

What better way to experience this than with a homegrown brand who knows what true Filipino hospitality is really like.
