When he suddenly changed his mind and decided to join me in another staycation 🙂
Staycation is our new trip. Aside from the fact that we save from gas we also save time and money but still feel away from the chaos of Manila.
We found Sulo Riviera Hotel (www.thesuloriviera.com) located near Heart Center of the Philippines. Room good for 2 usually cost 7,000.00/night but since we booked using hotels.com (my favorite hotel booking website) we got the room for only 3,000.00 – excluding breakfast. But if you want to avail breakfast you can add 500/head for a buffet set-up.
We love the place because its near fastfoods, reataurants and even convinience stores. So if you don’t want to eat in the hotel you can walk outside and you can find cheaper options.
Upon arrival we checked the room and ate outside. Then went back to our room to rest. After few minutes we avail the free welcome drinks. Its a choice of ice tea or beer. We avail 2 beers for Jomz and i ordered frozen margarita and sizzling tofu for pulutan.
As mentioned, menu prices is so cheap. I love the value for money aspect and serving is generous. We were not able to finish the tofu. Sayang.
Around 11pm we call it a night since i want to wake up early to swim.
The pool is up to 8.5ft deep so you can really do your laps. An hour and a half swim is super relaxing.
After the swim we went back to our room to prep for check out.
Here are our before we leave photos:
Here’s the breakdown of our expense during this weekend escape:
Dinner: 300.00 (mang inasal-outside the hote)
Drinks: 400.00 (with pulutan)
Total of 4,265.00
Thanks for another staycation experience. More of this 🙂
