MARRIOTT MANILA is "the" new kid on the block.It's a new addition to the growing list of five-star hotels to cement their presence in the Philippines. It is located in Newport City just opposite NAIA-3 which gives it a very big advantage on location especially because it caters mostly to business clients who are loyal to the Marriott brand.Not only that it is just across the street from the new airport terminal, it is also at the heart Resorts World Manila which is the Metro's world-class casino entertainment complex destination.
When you think of a hotel to stay, it is also important that you consider the things that you can do around it.It is this reason that we chose Marriott Manila for our second staycation.
The hallways are dominated by yellow hues.I find that pleasing to the eyes as well as it gives a fresh,clean feeling every time.The hallways are adorned by paintings consistent to the motif.Even the rooms are yellow-ish.Very unique of Marriott Manila.
We stayed in a deluxe room which fits a newlywed couple like us (is 2 years newlywed?haha) Feels like honeymoon the nth time.:)Everything you need for is inside, a mini bar, a cable tv, an office desk et.al. Best of all, I finally found a bed and pillows that could rival the softness and comfort of that of Thunderbird Resort. Plus with an airconditioning system which you can set up to 10 degrees Celsius, brace for a restful night sleep.
We always check the pool during the first day so that we could decide when to take a dip or have a breath of fresh air.as it is an added attraction to any hotel.It is important to check on what time it closes so that you can schedule ahead of time should you want to go for a swim.In the case of Marriott Manila, the pool opens 8am and closes 8pm.Hotel pools add elegance and prestige to any accommodation and hotel of course try to outdo themselves on this aspect.
The poolside of Marriott Manila is located on the 2nd floor along with the Fitness Club and Quan Spa with its SAUNA/ Hot pool extension near the poolside which I will discuss below.
The poolside bar is also open until 8pm daily. You can order drinks and cocktails here while you enjoy the backdrop of the skyline of Makati ng Bonifacio Global City and the splendid view of the 18-hole Villamor Golf Course.
The indoor Hot Pool and Sauna which is open to all hotel guests is one of our best spot in the hotel.My wife and I love going to the sauna and we have masage on a monthly basis so imagine how big our eyes opened when we learned that hotel guests have unlimited access to it. It's also located on the 2nd floor with access from the pool or from the inside.It's clean and not crowded. Aside from another guest who stayed for less than an hour, I was alone throughout my moment to relax.
We spent a few hours here on our first night and again on the next day.My wife even remarked that she can stay inside their sauna forever. :) THE BEST INDOOR SAUNA FACILITY to date!!!
