Edsa Shangri-La, Manila joins Binibining Pilpinas Charities in celebrating the recently concluded Binibining Pilipinas Gold, the 50th year celebration of the Filipino ideals of nationalism, responsibility, inner strength, discipline, resilience and professionalism all embodied in the modern Filipina, won by newly crowned Binibining Pilipinas-Universe Ms. Arriela Arida.

As the official residence of the 50 candidates who represented the best of the country's regional charms, the Edsa Shangri-La, Manila’s serene city oasis setting provided luxurious rooms, fitness and spa facilities for their well-deserved beauty rest to offset their grueling schedule.

Being the first Shangri-La property to open its doors in the Philippines in August 28, 1992, Edsa Shangri-La, Manila presents 632 fully-furnished guestrooms and suites in two wings. Four international restaurants headlined by the award-winning HEAT all day dining, free-form swimming pool, the famed three-level CHI, The Spa and two newly-renovated, pro-grade tennis courts are just some of the facilities that the Binibining Pilipinas candidates were treated to during their stay.

Past title holders of Bb. Pilipinas have moved on to careers not only in entertainment, fashion and lifestyle but also in business, tourism, medicine, and other fields where women are extending their influence. Funds raised by the annual beauty pageant go to support the civic projects of Binibining Pilipinas Charities all over the country.
