Siama Hotel: Beauty In Simplicity

Untitled
Siama Hotel is one of the most visually stunning and beautifully designed hotels that we’ve had the pleasure of visiting.  Inspired by the charming countryside of Sorsogon PHL, Siama seamlessly blends natural and modern architecture into a space that is calm and relaxed yet, at the same time, bold and welcoming.

Sustainability and nature, which are reflected throughout the entire hotel, were the main inspirations that went into the design.

Locally sourced materials were used in its construction, and great care was taken to ensure that the hotel has as small an impact on the surrounding environment as possible.

But looks alone isn’t what makes Siama one of our favorite hotels. The service and food are top-notch, and Siama is a great starting point if you plan to visit the many tourist attractions in Sorsogon.

 

Untitled
Quietly tucked away on the outskirts of Sorsogon City in the Province of Bicol, Philippines, Siama is a destination perfect for those who appreciate nature, great food and great company.

ASCOTT MAKATI: Best Staycation in the Heart of Ayala Center, Makati

ASCOTT Makati is one of the best staycations I had in Metro Manila. Besides its convenient location amidst the busy Makati Central Business District and the Ayala Malls.

We love its spacious designer serviced apartments perfect for short- and long-term stays for business and family staycations who are after the feeling of home, but with a butler and 24-hour services and facilities.

I love to think of it as my own furnished apartment complete with my own kitchen, bedroom, living room and bathroom. They offer chic and sophisticated 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, and 3-bedroom apartments as well as studio units perfect for traveling individuals.

Ascott

Ascott Makati is managed by The Ascott Limited of Singapore, the world’s largest international serviced residence owner-operator.

HiEx: Traveling Smart with Holiday Inn Express Newport Manila

oap-holidayinn-7348

Holiday Inn Express, the first of its kind in the Philippines, opened this July 2018. Located in Newport City, the hotel provides convenience for smart and savvy business travelers with its close proximity to the airport. This differs from the Holiday Inn in Makati, as the Express focuses on limited services at a reasonable price.

Holiday Inn Express is a globally recognized brand that focuses on three things – safety, comfort, and service. The old Remington Hotel has been refurbished to match the look and feel of all HiEx branches across the world.

I stayed for a night to experience the convenience they have to offer…

Siargao Bleu

Untitled
Siargao Bleu, by far, is one of the better resorts we had the pleasure of staying in.  The unique design and architecture perfectly encapsulate, the laid-back provincial feel of the entire island.  And while it’s the only Triple-A resort in Siargao, the establishment doesn’t come off as too bourgie or high-class.

Perfect for a romantic getaway or with a small group of family or friends, Siargao Bleu is for people who love the island life and, at the same time, know how to relax in style.

 

Untitled
Located at the heart of Siargao and minutes away from Cloud 9 Surfing, the resort draws guests from all around the world.

Surfing season is the busiest time in  Siargao and the resort is typically booked.  The popularity of Siargao Bleu makes it one of the most frequented resorts on the island so booking ahead of time is recommended.

HUNI SICOGON: What to Expect @hunisicogon ? (First Look)

Huni Sicogon is Ayala Land’s latest venture in Western Visayas. Just opened this July 2018, it is a 52-key, 2-storey boutique resort located at Sicogon Tourism Estate.

Sicogon Island is located on the northernmost part of Iloilo, under the municipality of Carles. This island has remained under the radar for the past few years, especially after Yolanda hit and brought casualty to the locals and their livelihood. Ayala is set to turn the island into a tourism estate, much like Lio El Nido.

I had the privilege to be one of the first few to visit the resort in its first week. Here’s what you can expect at Huni:
