(SPOT.ph) As much as going out of town on the weekends is ideal, the drive to a nearby villa can be tiring and the airfare can be expensive. But that doesn't mean you don't get to take a break. You can choose from the staycation hotels in Metro Manila, particularly luxurious suites that are worth your while. Take for example, Sheraton Manila Hotel's Junior Suite, which has overnight rates starting at P21,500.
Here's what you need to know about this staycation hotel in Manila:
The Junior Suite is a step above Sheraton Manila Hotel's standard rooms, which have rates starting at P12,500. But the almost-double price is worth it since you also get almost twice the space. It has 90 square meters of floor area, which has a spacious living room with a 55-inch television, a separate bedroom with a king-sized bed and another 55-inch television, and a small dining table beside the mini-bar. There's also an espresso machine with complimentary coffee capsules.
But nothing screams indulgence more than a marble bathroom with a bathtub. Grab a bottle of wine, fill the tub with warm water and some bath salts, and you're all set for a relaxing dip.
Guests at the Junior Suite also get access to the Sheraton Club Lounge on the 10th floor. Opened in July 2021, this room has modern chairs and tables and leather sofas for when you need a place to work or have a meeting.
Just in case you're not here for business (obviously), the lounge also makes for the perfect place for drinking and dining in peace. Instead of joining the crowd at the S Kitchen for breakfast, you can enjoy your first meal of the day at the Sheraton Club Lounge from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. Hors d' oeuvres and evening cocktails are also served from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. All-day refreshments are available from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., too.
What to Do
Sheraton Manila Hotel shares the lagoon-style, four-foot Vega Pool with Hilton Manila. It is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. from Monday to Friday and every Sunday, and from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every Saturday. If you're checked in on weekdays, you can enjoy a less crowded pool, especially in the morning.
You can also get a relaxing treatment at the signature Sheraton Shine Spa, which is open from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. Just make sure that you schedule an appointment so that you can fully enjoy their amenities, which include a steam room and therapy bath.
Where to Eat
You have three dining options to choose from when checked in at Sheraton Manila Hotel. S Kitchen on the ground floor has a buffet menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But they also have a la carte global and Filipino dishes any time of the day.
For those hankering for Korean food, Oori serves premium wagyu steak, Korean Barbecue, and imported duroc pork grilled over charcoal.
The Lounge, on other hand, is a casual pub that's perfect for a nightcap.
Where to Shop
Like Hilton Manila, Hotel Okura, and other properties within Newport World Resorts, Sheraton Manila is a stone's throw away from the four-level Newport Mall. It is home to luxury brands like L'Occitane, Tommy Hilfiger, Elevatione, Jo Malone, and other retail stores. They also have a one-stop shop for high-end merchandise and souvenir items called The Exclusives Store - Grand Wing, where members can use their gaming points to enjoy discounted rates.
