Estancia has become Ortigas’ art hub that fosters creativity in the middle of the metro and what better way to celebrate that than to launch it this season.” ~Arch. Renee C. Bacani, VP of Ortigas & Company
Estancia brings your Sweet Illusions to life with this year's candy-inspired Christmas installations very Instagrammable Sweet Illusions Four Rooms––Tutti Frutti, Candy Blast, Sweet Rush, and Special Dark––for your feeds! Ortigas & Company’s award-winning Christmas installation returned with a brand new theme last November 12, 2018, at Estancia to give holiday revelers a pleasant surprise.

In line with the company’s candy land theme this year, Estancia is putting together another Christmas must-see named Sweet Illusion Chambers – delectable rooms with light installations that bring to mind the candies and desserts that everybody craves for, especially during the holiday season. These Instagram-worthy and interactive rooms are open during mall hours and will run until January 6, 2019.
The four secret rooms are strategically placed across Capitol Commons––at the mall and the park––with each beholding a fun surprise for those who venture inside.
