The SUITEST of Them All

For a change, I planned to spend a relaxing weekend in a suite room at a luxurious hotel. Oh yeah, no traveling at all. I found out that some ladies prefer to pamper themselves in a hotel instead of traveling for a weekend getaway.

Since I will be spending a little more than my usual accommodations, I searched and compared every hotel in the metro extensively. The one that stood out the most within my budget is Oakwood Premier at Ortigas, Pasig City. It's a high-end serviced apartment.



Okay, I need to admit I got a little help from some people to get me a discount. Hihi And lucky me, I got it! Instead of the usual P9,200 rate for a 1-Bedroom Superior Suite, I scored this for a promo rate of P7,000 - with many inclusions: buffet breakfast for 2,
6 cans of soda + pizza, and P1,000 worth of credits to be used in Oakroom. Sweet (and sulit) deal!

Oakwood Premier Joy~Nostalg Center is a masterpiece of elegance and function, combining exquisite design features and total living convenience. I cant agree more...

Reception Area
a smooth and fast transaction

I got even luckier. The staff upgraded the room from a 1BR Superior to a 1BR Premiere, for free! Aylavet! ♥


Another thing worth mentioning is - I was with someone. Someone who shares the same birthday as mine! Ang galing, it's the 1st time I met someone na ka-bday ko. And so was he. There's not much getting-to-know-each-other phase. Iba pala yung vibes pag ka-bday mo. Katuwa. Ü

12th Floor please
meet my ka-bday, a shy type version of me. haha

I set my expectations too high in this place, and it didn't disappoint. It even exceeded my expectations. See for yourself...

a preview of a classy and elegant suite

This is the first time I saw a hotel room as new, classy, and elegant as this one. The interiors has this sophisticated appearance. It smells very good too, and not a noise can be heard. Take a closer look.


living area
with a full frame window

dining area

spotted

kitchen area

complete with high end appliances

living area's LCD television and entertainment system
see, even the provided slippers are classy


It's not just complete, but every detail is a knockout. Now let's go the room. Simply the best looking bedroom Ive seen!

freshest and most comfortable bed and pillows

so this is buhay mayaman!

LCD television in the bedroom

full size mirrors and walk-in closet
camera shy yung kasama ko =)


And finally, the bathroom. It instantly became my favorite spot in this 1BR-Suite.

the loveliest and most tempting bathroom ever

the bathroom has its own LCD television facing the tub
i spent an hour enjoying the warm and minty bubble bath

another favorite, a steam bath
and i spent another hour in here..

It's really very hard to leave a room like this.

a big dilemma - to leave the room or not? 0_o


Okay fine. Let's check the pool and the jacuzzi on the 6th floor.

Oakroom's Swimming Pool

uncrowded indoor and warm pool
with underwater music - perstaym ko! =)

common jacuzzi area
hhmm, very tempting

Beautiful, and again classy. Aylavet!

Snack time in the room. The deal I got includes a choice of Rustica or Di Mare pizza + 6 cans of soda. That FitNRight is mine. It's been years since I quit taking softdrinks.

free pizza and 6 cans of soda


UPDATED 12/03/2010 - Oakroom at Oakwood Premier
Lucky us, 2 breakfast buffets are included in the room rates we purchased.

lovely (and uncrowded) dining room setup

the limited spread of congee, fried rice, some viands
egg, bacon, sausage, cold cuts, salad, etc

bread and cereal section
the home made brownies is unforgettably yummy!

cold cuts and variations of cheese

juice station

some of the food i ate

my favorite breakfast combination
cereal with walnuts, almonds, macadamia, praline and raisins!

my ka-bday taking a break before eating again! haha


the smiling splurge-r =)


Im speechless with the accommodation, the amenities, and the service. Worth every peso spent. Internet access is P600/day- we didn't avail it. Haha The food is pricey too so we decided to dine elsewhere. HEAT at EDSA Shangri-La is nearby so that's perfect! See post here: Im in HEAT

Surpassed my high expectations.
Outstanding!

A great alternative for an out of town getaway.
Looking forward on my next stay.
