Families are relevant to Filipino society as we enjoy strong connections with our loved ones. We often find time, despite busy schedules, to get together and create new, lasting memories. One of our favorite activities is traveling to different destinations. Now that health restrictions are minimal, we’re making the most of all the opportunities to visit new locations with our loved ones.
Staycations are popular among families and have been all the rage for several years because of their practicality and accessibility. Imagine going on a relaxing or eventful trip without leaving the city or going significant distances. Fortunately for families in Metro Manila, we have several choices in finding the ideal staycation destination.
Hotels are often the top choice because of their abundance, proximity, and various amenities to cater to their guests’ preferences. One of the hotels worth looking at for a premiere staycation with the entire family is Novotel Suites Manila at Acqua.
As Century Properties’ first hospitality venture, Novotel Suites Manila opened its doors to the public last December 15, 2022. It is a 152-room hotel conceptualized by Century Properties Group, Inc., in collaboration with Accor, a globally-known hospitality company.
If you’re worried about going too far for a staycation destination, Novotel Suites Manila boasts a prime location in Metro Manila. Guests can easily find it at the boundary between Makati and Mandaluyong, where everything is a few minutes away. It is accessible via the Estrella-Pantaleon and Makati-Mandaluyong bridges that connect the two cities and is close to the Guadalupe-EDSA area, which connects to the airport via the Skyway.
The accessibility to other points in the metro allows guests to explore the city without worrying about straying too far from their home away from home. Families enjoying a staycation at Novotel Suites Manila can also look for travel, shopping, culinary, and entertainment hotspots at Makati, Ortigas, and Bonifacio Global City.
Yet there’s more to Novotel Suites Manila than just being a staycation destination that families and guests can use as an access point to and from relevant locations in the metro. Its modern, spacious, and stylish rooms offer a luxurious experience with its Live N’ Dream beds.
Guests will be delighted to know that the room options–standard studio, one-bedroom deluxe suite, one-bedroom superior suite, and one-bedroom premier suite–are spacious and offer them premiere views of the Makati and Mandaluyong skylines, which captivate onlookers at any time of the day.
Besides its rooms, Novotel Suites Manila also has several amenities its guests will love, including a fitness center with modern equipment on the 21st floor to meet the requirements of their healthy lifestyles. On the other hand, they can also go for a refreshing dip in the hotel’s 6th-floor swimming pool. Here, the experience is amped up by the spectacular views of the Pasig river across as well as the sunrise and sunset, making for a perfect early morning or afternoon swim.
Last but not least, no staycation is complete without good food. Luckily for families, Novotel Suites Manila is also ensuring stays become memorable with its food and beverage concepts, a lounge, a café, and a pastry shop. There’s something for everyone in the family as Novotel Suites Manila ensures their guests satisfy their culinary cravings with a wide array of choices.
The hotel tapped King Golden Dragon, the company behind House of Lasagna, as its official food and beverage partner. The restaurant group also promises diversified offerings and a leveled-up service and menu as it partners with Robert Davis, a veteran chef with an international hotel dining experience.
Meanwhile, the Novotel Suites Manila at Acqua’s all-day dining restaurant overlooks the pool, making brunches, lunches, and dinners genuinely unique experiences. There’s also a lounge for bite-sized treats, coffee, and sweets on the 21st floor. Not only will they be able to enjoy award-winning lasagna, but luscious cakes and pastries to pair with their coffee.
Apart from families who enjoy staycations, Novotel Suites Manila is also suitable for business travelers looking for a comfortable and convenient experience with the hotel’s meeting rooms for small-scale meetings, including the Coronado, Hulo, and a private dining room. Each features high-speed WiFi with other meeting and communication facilities.
