Oakwood Staycation


Our family is a sucker for staycations. We’re probably the most staycation-y family that ever lived! Hahaha! I guess I am very lucky to have in laws that I actually enjoy hanging out with so it’s always fun planning these little pockets of leisure time with them. They’re always game and eager just like me and Patrick, magaan kasama at palaging happy vibes which is very important! It’s always nice to discover a new place with your loved ones—to be “aliw” over something together and build lasting memories through the whole experience.

Now is really the perfect time for us because my nieces Audrey (4) and Natalie (2) are already old enough to fully appreciate experiences like this. They can easily verbalize their feelings and share in the excitement of a new place. For this staycation in particular, they went gaga over the huge bathtub and chilled like divas in a music video. So cute! After running around our gigantic 3 bedroom suite, Audrey came up to me, snuggled beside me and said “Tita Patty, I love this hotel. The rooms are very nice, I like it a lot! Thank you Tita!”. *Heart melts* Soon we will have a little tot of our own and I can’t wait to staycation with our baby too!

For this staycation, AGODA helped us book a beautiful 3 bedroom suite at Oakwood Premier Manila. You can click here to find the best deals. Located at the heart of Ortigas (just a few blocks away from Megamall, Robinsons Galleria and Podium Mall), this is the perfect city lovers spot. Best of all, it actually is a service apartment so you get the amenities of a full functioning apartment (living room, dining room, washer, dryer, kitchen, multiple bathrooms, etc) giving you that “feel at home” vibe but the luxury of a hotel’s housekeeping services. This is really ideal for family get togethers because you each have a room (with an ensuite bathroom) but you can all hang out in your jammies at the common areas (living/dining rooms are soon spacious!). Kwentuhan with your chichirya galore!!!

The rooms are so luxurious, you’ll really feel like you’re on holiday! And they also have a very generous buffet spread for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We feasted on fresh seafoods that evening! Definitely a winner for the Filarts. Again, I’d like to send my deepest thanks to Aleah and the wonderful team of OAKWOOD PREMIER MANILA for hosting our family last December. Good news for all my readers, I have a BIG SURPRISE at the end of this post 🙂 🙂
