Situated outside the main building of Hotel Tropika is the Siamesa Function Hall that provides an imposing statement of elegance and style. The spacious room with a Thai-inspired design was inaugurated July 10.
The function hall, which can accommodate a maximum of 100 guests, is good for meetings, banquets, wedding reception, etc. The hall can also be divided into two rooms with 40 seats each (classroom set-up) for meetings and seminars.
What makes Siamesa outstanding is it immerses its guests in a world of folklore and fantasy through the imaginings of local sculptor Victor Dumaguing. His work adorns the entrance with sculptures of Phra mae thorani (Mother Earth) in the form of a woman and Thai elephants.
All banquets held in Siamesa will be catered by the hotel’s restaurant, Cafe Aseya. Function quotations may be requested through email@example.com.
The inauguration also coincided with the hotel’s 7th anniversary. Hotel Tropika is a business hotel that houses 30 de luxe rooms. The hotel, designed in a tropical setting, is conveniently located in Lanang.
Carrying the slogan of “keeping you close to home,” the hotel takes pride in catering to the needs of a diverse clientele in Davao for business or pleasure. The three-storey hotel maintains 30 clean, fully functional and spacious deluxe rooms with a beautiful view of the garden and swimming pool.
Hotel Tropika has seven function rooms that can accommodate small and large groups between 25 to 180 people. A business center is readily available for printing, scanning and other activities needed during a function. The hotel’s event management team also ensures that meetings or banquet needs are delivered to the highest standards.
The hotel consciously integrates sustainability into its practices, such as installing water dispensers in each room of the hotel. Guests can refill glass pitchers provided for instead of using plastic water bottles. Shampoo dispensers are also provided in each guest bathroom instead of using the usual individual bottles to reduce use of plastic packaging. The hotel also uses energy-efficient air conditioners and light bulbs.
Hotel Tropika has been conferred with Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence and has been a consistent top performer among all the hotels in Davao. Guests give recognition to Hotel Tropika’s great location, well-appointed facilities, and very responsive service.
The hotel is minutes away from the airport, SMX Convention Center, SM Lanang Premiere, and some of Samal Island’s beach jetties.
The celebration was attended by the hotel’s corporate clients and friends.
