Central Square X RCBC Bankard’s Tropicale


Showcasing the best of the Philippines, the SSI Group celebrates all things local—from local artisanal products to travel destinations—through Tropicale, a campaign that allows you to experience the best of what the Philippines has to offer all under one roof at Bonifacio Global City’s premiere destination, Central Square.


Through the Tropicale getaway promo, your next big purchase may just be your ticket to some of the best travel destinations as SSI Group and RCBC Bankard, one of the country’s premier credit cards, give its loyal customers a chance to go on a dream vacation at Lagen Island Resort, Eskaya Beach Resort & Spa, and Mövenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu.


From September 1 to October 31, 2018, shoppers at Central Square and select Bonifacio High Street stores are entitled to one (1) raffle promo for every single or accumulated receipt of P3,000 from participating stores. RCBC Bankard cardholders not only get to pick a prize instantly from a selection of items from Central Square stores, but are also entitled to 3x raffle entries if they use their RCBC Bankard card. Lucky winners at the grand raffle in November may win a trip to the following vacation hotspots:


  • 3D/2N stay at Lagen Island Resort
  • 3D/2N stay at Eskaya Beach Resort & Spa
  • 3D/2N stay at Mövenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu


Getaway winners can spend a dreamy weekend at Lagen Island Resort nestled between a lush four-hectare forest and calm lagoon. The resort offers a magnificent view of Bacuit Bay and the El Nido sunset. The surrounding forest and limestone cliffs are natural attractions that also serve as sanctuary for a diverse variety of birds and mammals.


The Bohol beach hideaway that is Eskaya Beach Resort & Spa on the other hand, pampers all its guests with breathtaking nature views and topnotch amenities and activities that include Dolphin watching, sunset cruise around Panglao Island, Loboc River cruise, sightseeing colonial churches and the iconic Chocolate Hills and Tarsier spotting.


Likewise, leading scenic destination Mövenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu showcases its Mediterranean-inspired beachfront hotel with a myriad of fresh and fun choices from accommodations to leisure activities.
