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.

Here’s a photo essay of my stay…

LUB D Family Hostelcation (and How to Plan your Own) @Lub_d

Lub d, which means “sleep well” in Thai, is Southeast Asia’s leading Hotel & Hostel brand based in Bangkok. The new Brgy. Poblacion, Makati branch is their first expansion in Manila.

Though the design and pricing is that of a hostel, having more Private Rooms (119) vs. Duplex Rooms (34) and Mixed Dorm rooms (10) makes Lub d Makati more like a budget hotel. It’s the largest one in the Philippines targeting millennial travelers who want to see the world. It’s also great for families and training your little travelers to get used to the hostel vibe.

Our family stayed for a short “hostelcation” over the weekend. Here’s why we think it’s the best place for one in Makati…
