Since I started working, I’ve been “living on weekends.” I make it a point to plan my weekends and make the most out of it. For me, the best way to maximize my mere two days off is to travel. However sometimes I’m just too exhausted from work and I can’t bear the traffic especially since most closeby destinations are still 2-4 hours away from Manila and given the traffic situation now, that just might be the minimum. Sometimes I just want to get out of the city to relax, but at the same time don’t want to go too far. The perfect balance and solution? A staycation!
Last month, I was able to experience a staycation at Azumi Boutique Hotel, which is just located at Alabang, an hour or less from the city.
The moment I entered the hotel, I already knew that I would be coming home with a lot of photos, lol (as you will see in this post). The lobby’s interiors were modern and sophisticated. It was also decorated with travel inspired fixtures that gave the place more character!
Right beside the lobby, is Romulo Cafe restaurant which perfectly complemented and matched the hotel’s interiors.
The room booked for us was the Garden Room, which was just wonderful! I’ve always wanted my room to have full wall windows and this room had just that! To add to that just outside our room was a mini garden with a table set.
Similar to the lobby, the room’s interior is modern, clean, and minimalist. Love the wood accents!
Aside from the room, the next thing I was looking forward to was the infinity saltwater (!) pool. We arrived just before sunset and although it rained a bit, it did add some drama to the photos, lol.
The next day, the sun decided to show up which made great lighting in our room so we had a mini photoshoot (again).
The bed is so comfy as you can see!
We then had a scrumptious breakfast/brunch buffet at the restaurant before heading back to Manila.
It was a short but sweet weekend! Definitely did not want to leave and go back to reality! Thanks so much Azumi Hotel for partnering with me and hope to go back for another staycation 🙂
