Work has a lot of nice and informational perks and having this assignment of attending a event of Makati Shangri-La gave me an afternoon of fun. Not that I miss the corporate world but my new career as a mom, a writer, and many others has brought in new experiences that are giving me so much learnings.
I had a wonderful time touring and knowing what Makati Shangri-La has in store for the families. According to Makati Shangri-La’s Head of Communications, Laviet Joaquin, “Our hotel is mostly know for being a business hotel and a lot of people don’t know that we are also family-friendly and very accessible.” I personally thought he hotel caters more to business activities, functions, and big celebrations like debut, weddings, etc. But knowing that Wonderful Weekends package exists made me realise that not all hotels have this.
Traveling is a norm and a trend for a lot of families in the Philippines and another trend these days is staycation. Instead of a tiring long drive for an out-of-town family vacation, families enjoy their weekends and make the memorable by staying in hotels and changing their usual environment to a new and relaxing one like a hotel stay. Makati Shangri-La, Manila can assist families make Wonderful Weekends more memorable! They made this special oackage family- friendly and a really good one for kids and parents. They know exactly what each member of the family wants and needs.
Makati Shangri-La’s WONDERFUL WEEKENDS package is the perfect family staycation packed with activities and treats not just for the kids but also the parents where families can enjoy more room time with an early check-in at 10 a.m. and late check-out at 4 p.m. Transform the hotel room into a little playground with a tipi tent and complimentary kids mini bar filled with treats and goodies. Trust me, I look forward to having this myself ! Also, if you need more space, get a 50% discount on the prevailing Best Available Rate by booking a 2nd room just for the kids. You may request to have joined rooms that are beside each other (this is upon availability of course)
This is one thing I like about the stay here. There are activities in store for the little ones as they can explore their creativity with pastry decorating classes, and arts and crafts sessions in the afternoon of your weekend. That’s actually not all. The kids can grab away a special prize when they complete ten (10) exciting Wonderful Weekends Challenges!
The swimming pool is open for the whole family. While the kids enjoy their time swimming, Mommy and Daddy can also enjoy complimentary use of the hotel’s Health Club facilities including the gym, tennis court, sauna, hot and cold jacuzzi.
Evenings need not be boring too. You can go to their entertainment library and enjoy board games, read books, and watch some movies. Okay Moms, relax! You don’t need to worry about dinner because they made plans for you already. When you book your stay, you have a Php1,200 dining credit which you can use in any of their dining outlets in the hotel. Lazy to go out? You can also use it for in-room dining. The whole family will just relax and enjoy!
and so it doesn’t end there….
The next day, indulge in the extensive breakfast selection at Circles Event Café good for 2 adults and 2 kids below 12 years old.
It will surely be a memorable weekend you’ll cherish with your family.
All those mentioned above with a price of less than 10k for the family is not bad at all! Price starts at Php 8,800++ per night.
It’s not just that, the hotel is situation in the middle of shopping malls. So if you need something nearby, these are all near – The Landmark, Greenbelt 1,2,3,4 & 5, Rustan’s, Glorietta, SM Makati.
