Staycation in hotels is now a trend aside from having the common outdoor activities that are ideal for a quick vacation like swimming, strolling, traveling and more. Instead of getting tired, you can now enjoy your weekend staying in a nice hotel, taking a good rest after all the work you’ve done for the whole week. Speaking of hotels, there are plenty of hotels in Manila to choose from for that much-needed staycation in the city. Picking the right hotel is easy, as long as you know what you prefer – affordability, theme, location and amenities.
There are various hotels in the city but the real question is: which hotel stand out? With numerous hotels to choose from, there are only few with a unique theme and interiors. Hotel H2O in Manila Ocean Park is one of the best examples of uncommon hotel that you can find in Manila.
Hotel H2O desires to astound as they draw inspiration from the ocean. The rooms and suites will entertain you with their floor-to-ceiling windows, even liven up your surroundings with aquarium walls and an underwater theme. This is perfect if you love the ocean and you wanted to feel like you are part of it even just for a day. Aside from the aquarium-themed rooms, you can also enjoy their complimentary welcome amenities, high speed internet access, full security and a 37-inch LCD television set.
Unique Hotel H2O StaycationFew weeks ago, we were invited by Hotel H2O to experience their signature Aqua Room - the only one of its kind in the Philippines (See room rates). A life-sized aquarium wall in one side of the room features the calm and mesmerizing beauty of the marine world which runs the length and breadth of the 25 to 35 sqm room's main wall. Staying at this room, you'll enjoy seeing 35 different species of fishes, with myriad of colors, shapes and sizes that will glide by you.
It has one queen-size bed with soft mattress, clean white sheets, plush comforter and plufffy pillows. Other room amenities include an en suite toilet and bath, an LCD television set with cable channels, a spacious work desk, cabinet, luggage rack, telephone, and a mini bar with refrigerator and coffee & tea making equipment. Complimentary bottled water and snacks were also provided. Yey!
The toilet and bath is spacious, clean, and well lit. It has a wide sink with mirror, a clean water closet with bidet spray, and a separate shower area with hot and cold shower. Toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, bath soap, body lotion, bath gel, vanity and dental care kits and clean towels were also provided. What else can I ask for? It's really impressive!
