RECOGNIZED as Cebu’s first eco-themed residential development, Soltana Nature Residences is a multi-tower condominium project by Taft Properties in Lapu-Lapu City that offers homeowners modern urban living with nature’s touch.
On Nov. 26, 2021, Soltana had its annual tree lighting ceremony and holiday soiree. This year, however, is a little different because after almost two years of being under quarantine, there is so much to celebrate and be thankful for.
During the program, guests went on a trip down memory lane and reminisced about the property’s milestones this year. 2021 may have had its fair share of setbacks, but Soltana has slowly bounced back with events like Sweet Soltana Summer, Mano Mano Arts and Crafts Expo, and Forever at Soltana.
Soltana’s Christmas tree this year is a classic-meets-modern centerpiece. Traditional elements like stars and faux fir are juxtaposed with angular design and local elements like the woven rattan incorporated into the tiers of the tree. The structure itself is also cleverly assembled around a real tree, with its branches adding a natural feel to the installation.
Attendees of the event were also serenaded with holiday tunes by members of the internationally acclaimed chorale group Mandaue Children and Youth Chorus, led by musical director Dennis Gregory Sugarol. The tree lighting was immediately followed by a stunning fireworks display.
The tradition of tree lighting is not only a way to usher in the holiday season, but also an opportunity to gather and share in the spirit of thanksgiving, which is especially important after the events that transpired the past couple of years.
With a grateful perspective for the year that was and an optimistic outlook for the new one ahead, Soltana Nature Residences is ready to forge ahead and continue to build this world-class resort community for the Cebuanos.
