Staycation at Sofitel Manila Part 1

Bonjour! Mabuhay! Oh, it's good to be back! My last post was a couple of weeks back (as always, majorly busy!), so far the fanciest thing we did was a luxurious sleepover at Sofitel Manila.  C'est Magnifique! It's short but oh so sweet, grand staycation! Let me tell you why...Welcome to Sofitel Manila!

View from our room is the Sofitel Manila's signature facility, the exquisite lagoon-shaped pool, and the iconic Manila Bay. 
Our hotel stays are good mix of personal and work-related sleepovers. So more or less, we have our favorites. Lucky that I've been going to Sofitel for a couple of events already. At one occasion, I even had the pleasant time touring the Imperial Residence. Amazing! I'm looking forward to a nice sleepover as well. The last sembreak weekend was a good day to indulge. When we checked-in, I was surprised to be told that our accommodation was upgraded to Luxury Club Room, meaning we get an access to the Club Millésime Lounge, plus enjoy several more perks.

We were the Guests of the day!  My son was so happy, he marveled at how lucky we were! 
Instead of checking-in at the front desk, we were ushered by our very own butler, Mr. Romy, to the Club Lounge. We were feeling mighty special!

Club Millésime Lounge at the 10th Floor. Here, checking-in and out can be facilitated .
Complimentary Food and Beverage at the Club Lounge. Since we had lunch reservations at the Spiral, we saved indulging on the great selection of snacks in the Club Lounge for later.  
Our floor. 11th Floor. Same floor as the Imperial Residence. Smells so nice and clean.
My boys. Our home for the night...Sofitel Manila Luxury Club Room.
Sofitel's Signature MyBed. My son adores hotel stays, he fondly calls them fancy living. 
Welcome Treats. Plus a personalized card.  #FeelingSuperSpecial
My son's Travel Diary. He had the greatest time! Will tell you more about it. 
Our Little Prince. Living the life indeed. First order of business, indulge in the candy treats prepared for him. 
Our room comes with a private balcony with the view of the pool and Manila Bay, and a work desk.  
Mini Bar. Coffee and Tea Unlimited. Yay! ;-D
To the bathroom, off we go...

The bathroom is spacious, and comes with a separate bath area, comes with a rain shower. Except, to my excitement, I actually forgot to request a room with a bath tub. 
Another reason I look forward to our stay, and to my hubby's annual business conference stay in the hotel is because of the hotel guest bathroom amenities, had Hermes and L'Occitane then, that he obligingly albeit halfheartedly brought home. More nights, more of them.. Hah. This time around, it's another  French brand.

Oh wow! Les Notes de Lanvin for Hotel Guest Bathroom Amenities. 
More Lanvin. Plus my Toiletry Kit and my skin care must haves. #ShuUemura #Innisfree #VictoriasSecret #BenefitCosmetics #Luview
Obviously, we don't travel light! For an overnight stay, we're bringing tons of things. And one bag was all for my stuff. Hah. #TheNorthFace
More bags. More shoes. #Nike #Bass #ToryBurch #FlipFlop #TheNorthFace #KateSpade
Next, I'll show you Spiral, let's feast! Cheers! ^_^

Merci beaucoup! ^_^

About Me

My photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
