The Imperial Suite at Sofitel is probably the best presidential suite among the hotels here in Manila because of its awesome view of the Manila Bay Sunset. It is located on the top floor of Sofitel and offers a 180-degree view of Manila Bay. We’re so blessed to experience staying for one night in this Presidential Suite. It was part of the prize package for the Siete Pecados contest my brother and I joined last December.
Here is the photo essay of our Imperial Suite experience in Sofitel at the start of 2010:
I thought twice if I was going to post this. In the spirit of the valentines season, we decided to share this with you. January 11 was our 4th year anniversary and it was kinda difficult to plan surprises these days for my wife. Here is a sneak peek…
Admittedly, it was hard to plan an anniversary surprise for my wife. On our first anniversary, we went to the land of the Samurai’s in Kyoto, Japan. Our last two anniversaries was forgettable because of the pregancy in 2005 and I was on travel in Cebu on our anniversary day (which I learned to be a no-no). So this year’s anniversary would be different and I learned not to take it forgranted :).
We always wanted to try out Westin’s Couple’s Spa Room ever since we saw it 2 years ago. When we tried it this year, we realized that the entire Philippines Westin Hotel is now bought by Sofitel Hotel group. They offer three (3) packages under the brand name Suite Romance Package:
Passion (180 minutes) – P7,500 (2) Fresh Fruit Shake (1) Bottle of Champagne (2) Passionate Massage (2) Body Moisturizing Treatment with herbal lotions (2) Foot Spa treatment (2) Four-course gourmet meal by Spiral! 30-minute private time for the couple Use of bathrobe and slippers
Sensual (120 minutes) – P4,500
(2) Fresh Fruit Shake (2) Sensual Massage (2) Body Moisturizing Treatment with herbal lotions Box of hand-made chocolate pralines or truffles Pot of hot tea infusion 30-minute private time for the couple Use of bathrobe and slippers
Tender (90 minutes) – P3,000 candlelit whirlpool bath of crystal bubbles (2) Tender Massage (2) Chilled bottled mineral water 30-minute private time for the couple Use of bathrobe and slippers
We tried the Passionate package primarily because of the 4-course Spiral dinner and the foot spa pampering! The photo above is the how the couple’s room looks like. This was featured in Us girls, and so I wanted to share with you the actual experience. Bottomline, the massage was great as expected but the Spiral food was so-so. I expected too much I guess on the Spiral dinner but we both agree that the package would have been worth it if the dinner was very good. The room looked old but I must admit it was well maintained. It was a great way to spend our anniversary 🙂
