When it comes to hotels and finding a place where one can have a relaxing getaway, there are tons of options around. But there are only a few that really stand out no matter how brief one’s stay is.
One such place that impressed me a whole lot is the newly opened Somerset Alabang Manila. I had the pleasure of staying here just a couple of weeks ago and I must say, every praise I’ve heard that was said about this establishment is truly well deserved.
Although my stay at Somerset Alabang Manila was very brief (overnight, actually), I made sure to take advantage of the room we stayed in and make the most of the time we had.
Somerset Alabang Manila is not your typical hotel
One thing that immediately stood out (which I’m sure you will notice, too) is how beautiful Somerset Alabang Manila’s rooms are. In fact, they don’t even feel like rooms. Maybe that’s why they are called “Apartments” instead. And rightfully so. The area feels like an elegantly designed flat with interiors that are clean, spacious and airy.
One thing that really impressed me a whole lot was the configuration of our rooms. It’s actually the first time I’ve ever seen two separate rooms — a One Bedroom Apartment and a Studio — instantly converted into one incredible living space by using an inconspicuous door located at the end of the hallway.
When in use, this door serves as the our rooms’ main entrance. It’s perfect for families! When the common door is not used, it is just left fully-opened, making it blend in with the wall of the hallway. Ingenious!
Toilet and Bath
I particularly loved the spacious living area as well as the fully equipped kitchen which my family and I were able to make use of.
For those who are usually particular about having reliable internet connection during staycations (aren’t we all?), you’d be glad to know that Somerset Alabang Manila provides free wifi for guests with ample speed.
There are also great facilities and and an impressive restaurant that offers convenience and dining pleasure.
Though not as big as other those in other hotels, Somerset Alabang Manila’s pool is more than enough for guests who want to take a dip in the water, do a few laps and de-stress.
A fully equipped fitness center is located just nearby for those who want to work up a sweat through the use of cardio machines and weights.
Toddlers can also have fun at Somerset Alabang Manila’s very own Playroom while you’re busy working out. And since both areas are divided by a glass wall, you can keep an eye on your little ones while doing your own thing.
Hungry? Cafe Madrigal at Somerset Alabang Manila has got you covered!
Somerset Alabang Manila also boasts of great dishes found at Cafe Madrigal and Bar.
Here you can enjoy mouthwatering specialties and refreshing drinks any time of the day. Here are a couple of dishes my family and I tried out there, as well as the ones we ordered via room service.
Spinach Artichoke Dip
Bacon and more bacon!
Overall, our quick stay at Somerset Alabang Manila has given us more reason to come back. It is truly one of those places that immediately give you a sense of home. No wonder I miss the place already.
I have no doubt you will find Somerset Alabang Manila to be one of the best places to spend a relaxing getaway whether you’re away for work or simply spending quality time with family.
