The Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria — What to Expect?

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.

Sofitel Hotel Manila Staycation with Mom! (Itinerary)

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…

CRAYFISH PARTY 2019: Asia’s Biggest Viking Party! @SofitelManila

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

#Hotels, #Philippines, Boracay Island, Staycation

The District! The Best Boutique Hotel in Boracay

Even before its rehabilitation, Boracay has always been my favorite island in the Philippines.

I’ve been to this pristine island six times already but I just keep on coming back.

Apart from being the perfect beach getaway because of its breathtaking beach and crystal clear waters, this small island also has practically everything I need—from restos, to bars, to water activities, not to mention the array of hotels you can choose from to make your stay more memorable.

On my sixth sojourn to Boracay, I stayed in this newly renovated contemporary boutique hotel, The District. It’s conveniently located at the beachfront of Station 2 which is about a 5 min walk away from D’mall.

The District, for me, is by far the best modern boutique hotel for vacationers who want to stay at a convenient location without sacrificing their privacy. It has everything that you’ll ever need all in one place.

Join me as I discover what The District has to offer!
