Top 5 Hotels for the Best Vacation in the City
You don’t need to use most of your vacation credits, nor have to spend too much time and money traveling to a faraway destination just to have a vacation. You can just stay within the city, shop and dine, explore corners unknown, and then relax in a comfortable hotel room at night.
Here’s a list of some of the best hotels around the Metro where you can have a mini-holiday.
If you want a new definition of five-star luxury, look no further than Acacia Hotel in Alabang. Some elegant establishments might make you feel like you have to be too formal, but that’s not so with Acacia. The vibrant colors and contemporary designs, combined with world-class hotel service and trademark Filipino hospitality are guaranteed to make your stay truly comfortable and memorable.
Within the hotel itself, you can avail luxurious pampering treatments at Lurra Wellness Spa, as well as delectable meals at the Acaci Coffee Shop. You can also take a dip in the pool or sweat it out at the gym to get the endorphins flowing. And because of Acacia Hotel’s strategic location in the middle of Alabang, you can easily step out and head to Alabang Town Center and Festival Supermalls, where you can find hundreds of leisure options.
Apart from the top-quality amenities, Acacia Hotel also has customized orthopedic beds in all of their 261 rooms. These beds help relieve pressure points in the body, so you can sleep better and feel more rejuvenated.
Belmont Hotel Manila
One advantage of Belmont Hotel Manila? It’s about five minutes away from NAIA Terminal 3 via the Runway Manila footbridge. But apart from being conveniently close to the airport, Belmont Hotel Manila also boasts of various world-class facilities and services, including an outdoor jacuzzi, three swimming pools (one of which is located at the roofdeck), and three in-house dining choices: Cafe Belmont, Rooftop 11, and Naahim Bakery.
Those looking for more leisure options can simply step outside the hotel and visit Newport Mall, which houses Resorts World Manila and many other dining, shopping, and entertainment establishments. At night, when you are ready to rest your head, you can take solace in the compact yet still elegant and comfortable rooms at Belmont. Each room has been designed with efficiency in mind, maximizing the space for a truly no-fuss relaxation.
F1 Hotel Manila
F1 Hotel is the first hotel to open in Bonifacio Global City, so it has the benefit of being at the center of the action: Bonifacio High Street, Burgos Circle, Fort Strip, and Serendra. You’ll never run out of things to do to indulge yourself! But if you don’t want to step out of the hotel’s warm and sophisticated accommodations, you can enjoy the various upscale facilities and amenities of F1. These include a truly beautiful lobby in the fifth floor, a pool deck, and a well-equipped fitness center. The spacious rooms are also well-appointed, with a simple and clean design that evokes understated elegance.
The crowning glory of F1 Hotel, however, is perhaps its restaurant F All-Day Dining. Helmed by their new executive chef Chubby Timban, each and every dish is carefully prepared to satisfy your cravings for both local and international dishes. They have a Filipino-Mexican spread every Friday to Saturday, while F All-Day Dining Patisserie has a featured cake every month that will sate your sweet tooth.
In the heart of Ortigas stands Astoria Plaza, one of the most well-known and well-loved hotels in Pasig City because it gives the best of both worlds: a private and peaceful environment and access to the city’s bustling action. Outside Astoria, you can visit premier shopping centers like SM Megamall, Shangri-La Plaza, and the Podium. You can also stay within the hotel to pamper yourself in Astoria’s in-house spa and massage center, cool down and swim in the pool, and indulge in delightful meals at Cafe Astoria or authentic Japanese fare at Minami Saki.
In fact, with the well-appointed suites at Astoria Plaza, you may really not want to leave and simply order room service! Their rooms are spacious, upscale, elegant, and cozy, and are designed with your ultimate comfort in mind. Through the windows, you can see the bustling cityscape which is especially captivating at night with its glittering lights.
