The 293-room SEDA Residences in Makati quietly opened its doors at Ayala North Exchange (beside Makati Med) and quickly became the preferred 4-star hotel among those working in offices and embassies around the area.

Here are some tips and secrets for your next family staycation in Makati…
Tucked away in a quiet beach just outside the busy town of El Nido is a small family-owned resort that offers the perfect escape to a tranquil getaway in the island—intimate yet accessible with an awesome view to match and, quite possibly, the best and only swimmable beach in this side of town.
Maremegmeg Beach Club is the future of eco-luxury beachfront resorts in El Nido, Palawan!
Ready for a respite from the bustling Alona Beach? Look no further. Located atop a limestone cliff, Amorita Resort Bohol is undeniably one of the best eco-friendly and luxurious resorts in the Philippines. This perfect cliffside hideaway boasts a sweeping unobstructed view of Alona Beach, best enjoyed from its infinity pool and five-hectare property that overlooks the whole stretch. A bonus: there’s a hidden private beach accessible only to Amorita guests.
“Amorita” translates to little darling in Spanish. Our sweet and intimate stay at the resort undoubtedly lived up to this namesake.
Here are 5 reasons why you should stay at Amorita…
The Crowne Plaza is a global brand and chain of business hotels managed by the IHG (InterContinental Hotels Group) which includes its more famous sister brand, the Holiday Inn Hotels & Resorts.
Much like the one in the Philippines, they cater mostly to business travelers and operate in almost every major city in the world. Their hotels are usually located in city centers, business districts or airports.
Built-in 2014, The Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria is the first Crowne Plaza property in Manila. It is strategically located at the central business district of Ortigas Center, at the heart of Metro Manila in Pasig City.
Tucked away in the heart of Makati’s Central Business District, The Alpha Suites is possibly one of the most overlooked if not the best luxury serviced apartment in the city.
Offering a wide range of stylish, well-equipped suites that are more spacious and up-to-date than those of other neighboring luxury hotels, The Alpha Suites is not your typical staycation hotel in the block as it offers unbeatable value for such well thought out and designed interiors that millennials would surely enjoy.
Why not treat your special mom to a sweet escape in our very own city!
It’s not a secret that I’ve been traveling a lot lately, and most of the time, I’d leave my suite and be out sightseeing. The best part about staycations is that you get to take advantage of all the hotel amenities. Since you’re in your city, the focus is all about that much-needed R & R.
When you think about Sofitel Manila, the first thing that probably comes to mind is its famous Spiral Restaurant buffet—one of Manila’s best buffet spreads! But what you’re missing is spending a relaxing staycation in a tropical oasis with the iconic lagoon-shaped swimming pool, majestic Manila Bay sunset, luxurious pampering and a full line-up of gastronomic feasts.
I was thrilled to indulge in some relaxation with the girls! What better way to unwind than a quick vacation minus the hustle of traveling. Here’s a sample itinerary of our weekend at Sofitel Manila…

Transport back in time and feast like a Viking at the biggest Crayfish Party in Asia!
The Kräftskiva (Crayfish Party) is a traditional Swedish eating and drinking celebration, symbolizing the end of summer for Nordic countries, usually in August. The celebration is made complete with the serving of the sought-after delicacy, the Swedish crayfish. But what is crayfish? Crayfish, also known as freshwater lobster, is found in the Northern Hemisphere and is not native to Philippine waters, which explains why we’re not that familiar with it. Due to a plague that almost wiped out the crayfish population, a law has been made to prohibit the fishing of crayfish year-round except during the crayfish season that starts in August. This is the reason why the crayfish is rare and expensive.
Feast on bountiful servings of imported crayfish and Nordic spreads, drink free-flowing beer, dress in Viking costume and dance to the festive music with NordCham Philippines in partnership with Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila on September 14, 2019 at the Sofitel Harbor Garden Tent. Here’s what to expect from this year’s event…Read more
