Our latest staycation was at the New World Hotel Makati.
My husband had to work overnight on his birthday and I can't bear the thought of him spending his special day alone, so we decided to hang around.
Since he would be working at New World Hotel tonight (all smiles), we were able to get special rates.
Our package included welcome drinks and noon tea buffet.
Our receptionist personally seated us at the lobby lounge as we were served welcome drinks. Since our room was not yet available, we decided to take the noon tea as well.
This is the good life!
My kids went gaga over the sweet deserts and pastries. They easily filled their plates with baked goodies they can eat ~ a real sugar overload!
After we finished and the kids had their fill, a bellboy took our bags and helped us to our room.
We stayed in a superior room with a king size bed, plus a complimentary extra bed to fit us (2 adults and 2 kids) comfortably.
The room was quite small (made smaller with the additional bed set-up) and there were no real space for the kids to run around and play. The room was also a bit outdated, but it was clean and well maintained.
The room has everything we needed ~ cozy beds, minibar, cabled television, wifi, It even has an umbrella and bath robes.
We were just settling in, when the bellboy knocked and gave my husband a chocolate mousse cake. What a surprise!
We just had noon tea and now an entire 8 inches round cake (less than two hours since we came in New World and I think I already gained a pound or two).
|Too bad there is no candle.|
Our room has a lovely view of the pool and the Greenbelt.
The buffet breakfast at the hotel's Café 1228 is amazing. Choices are varied and all very delicious
(oops, again another pound or so).
- Location alone is AAA+. The hotel is just a few steps away the Greenbelt Mall, Landmark and Glorietta. It is an absolute shopper's dream hotel.
- Breakfast is superb.
- Excellent service, from the moment you enter the hotel. Staff very cordial and accommodating.
- The extras we got made our stay really memorable. We will be back for sure.
