When you stay at hotels, it’s not all about the rooms. Of course, the quality of your accommodations is important ~ the beds and linens have to be fresh, the air-conditioning should be sufficient, the bathroom has to be clean and supplied with towels and basic toiletries, among other things. However, there are also other facilities you should look for in a hotel, like a restaurant or in-house spa — things that would help you have a truly relaxing time and forget about your stresses for a while.

Here’s a quick list of some of the best hotels around the Metro where you can treat and pamper yourself, whether you’re looking for good food, a great view, a quiet location, or all of the above!

For a Spa Treatment

The Health Club at the Makati Diamond Residences has some pretty wonderful spa offerings, like their signature massage, Swedish massage, rejuvenating facial, foot reflexology, and other truly relaxing treatments. You can also opt to have your chosen spa treatment to be conducted in the comfort of your own room, so you can just fall right to sleep on your plush bed.

Solaire Resort & Casino also has a state-of-the-art luxury spa that offers various kinds of massages, including the traditional Filipino “hilot” and a hot-and-cold stone massage. They also have a range of body scrubs, foot spas, facial treatments, and other luxurious indulgences that will leave you feeling totally refreshed and pampered like royalty. Continue reading

I recently received this card from a postcrossing friend, Rence, that featured different Philippine churches. I just wish the multi-view mentioned their names as I do not recognize them.

The annotation at the back says:

Under centuries of Spanish influence, the Filipinos are predominantly Catholic as reflected by the many churches all over the island. 

The postcard also has a beautiful stamp that features the Bantay Bell Tower found in Vigan, which was just released by Philpost. I sure hope it reaches our local post office very soon. Oh it even has the signatures of those who attended that postcrossing meet-up, including Robert Alejandro, a renowned artist and children’s book illustrator.

Thank you, as always, Rence for this lovely card. 😍
