A Peek Inside Abreeza Ayala Malls of Davao


I had this opportunity to attend the opening of the newest and the grandest mall in Davao. The Abreeza Ayala Malls of Davao has officially opened on May 12, 2011. I’ve been there for the first two days of their opening. It was a day of terrible traffic in Davao. But despite the traffic and the scorching heat of the sun, Davaoneos graced the opening of the Abreeza Ayala Malls of Davao. Needless to say that people of Davao are looking for something new and something fresh in the market.



One of the attractions in the opening salvo are the celebrities who graced the occasion. So far, I’ve seen 3 known Kapamilya celebrities such as Enchong Dee, Billy Crawford and Christian Bautista.


The Abreeza Ayala Malls of Davao is located along Bajada, Davao City. It is a place accessible for everybody.


It is a three storey building. The other part of the mall is the Robinson’s Supermarket and Departmemt store. It occupies I think about 30 to 40 % of the building. This is where you can shop for assorted clothes and groceries.


Let’s take a quick tour inside the mall. Please do apologize me for the quality of the photos here as I don’t have a high end camera unit for high resolution images.
In the first floor, you can see various restaurants and clothing brands. But what really captures my attention is the atrium.


Compared to other malls, their atrium can I think accommodate two to three times more people. It also has the mini playground where children can enjoy.



You can also see National Bookstore:

McDonald’s fastfood branch:


AstroVision where you can buy music albums from your favourite artist:


Most of the stalls in the first floor are clothing apparels such as:
Folded & Hung:


Kamiseta:


Bench:


Freeway:


Parfois


They also have some vanity shops such as the Faceshop:


And what really stands out on the first floor is the presence of the almighty Starbucks Coffee shop:


Now, let’s go to the second floor. Basically, you can still see some restaurants, clothing apparels and sporting goods here.

Look, they have ArtWork shop here:


Abenson:

Karimadon:


Marcella:



Havaianas:


If you are looking for souvenir items, they have a store called Islands Souvenirs:


And for food lovers, they have Teriyaki BOY for you:


For those who love seafoods, they have Seafoods Island here:


For footwear, they have Sanok:


And several other footwear shops:


They also have Philip Stein:


And to feed your appetite, they have Gerry’s Grill:


Sporting goods are also apparent in the second floor. And if we talk about Sporting apparel, of course, we have Nike on the list:


Planet Sports:


Chris:


And of course Adidas:


Speedo


Lacoste


And look at what I’ve discovered. One stall on the second floor is for Apple store, but it’s not opened yet when I went there:



They also have JB Sports and Music



Now, let’s check the third floor. Cinemas, fastfood and gaming section are on the third floor.

They have Cinemas:


Timezone:

and of course the fastfood:




And while you are eating in the fastfood, you can see the panoramic view of the city:



They also have Figaro on the third floor:



And for the cute and playful kids, you can leave them here at Dave’s Funhouse:



If you want to just relax and stay away from the crowd, there’s a wide vacant area on the third floor where you can breathe fresh air.


In the third floor, you can also see a pet shop:



And this is I think a good place for geeks to hang out. You can see a lot of techie stores like:

Data Blitz


Ink For Less


Silicon Valley


Lenovo


Acer


Samsung


And Asus



There are actually a lot of stalls and stores inside the mall but I can’t mention them all.


As you can see, they have also an alley wherein you can see salons, barbershops, parlor, etc.



A day won’t be enough to enjoy the mall and visit all stores. Visit and experience Abreeza Ayala Malls of Davao now.

  9. i think 1 more shopping mall is enough. yung under constrction na sm north is enough for davao city. hndi naman sa napakarami na ng mall, kundi yung syudad ng davao ay wag sana itulad sa magulong maynila.

    ReplyDelete
  10. balita ko eh mas malaki pa raw yung SM North kumpara sa abreeza? totoo?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Well, you have a point. But we must wait for SM NOrth to finish before we can say it is bigger than Abreeza. Pero dib, mas marami, mas better...I still want to look forward for more malls here

  12. just wondering... do people really purchase there? i even saw a philippe charriol... as far as i know even rich people (as in literally owning buildings & businesses etc) i know from davao can really be quite practical... i know of many who opt for selected ukay2x and overruns or quad AAA replica... their reasons are..


    1. identical... nobody asks for a certificato when you bring it and not everyone can identify anyway since replicas are getting even better these days

    2. why waste so much money when that can be reinvested to something appreciating

    3. even if they wear a fake one hardly anyone would believe it anyway, and even if people knew, they wouldn't care their assets can speak for themselves

  13. Of course, there are a lot of customers buying there...
