Last April 23, I, my son and my niece went with hubby to Edsa Shangri-La Manila for their summer company outing. We stayed in a Deluxe Room with two beds, which were just enough for 3 adults and 1 kid.

What we did was put the two beds close together so we’d feel like sleeping in one huge bed. It worked!

Our Deluxe Room has free wifi (but weak signal, though), cable TV, in-house movie channels, full-sized executive writing desk, IDD telephone and voice mail, electronic safe, bathrobes and slippers, hair dryer, and iron and ironing board.

It’s also equipped with coffee/tea-making facilities and a mini-bar.

The spacious bathroom has a bathtub and shower plus complete toiletries, too.

That’s our son with his cousin Ate Ayie.

We stayed in our room to rest for a while, then went to Shangri-La Plaza Mall to have dinner at Corazon.

After dinner, we went back to the hotel to have a quick dip in their gorgeous pool.

This is how the pool looks like in the morning. Lovely, isn’t it?

My son really enjoyed his time in the pool.

The pool area is a great place for photo ops.

There’s also a kiddie pool with a slide.

And a pond beside the kiddie pool with lots of fish!

See what I mean?

And just a few steps away from the pond is an empty wooden bench, another perfect spot for souvenir photos.

Our overnight stay at Edsa Shangri-La Manila also came with complimentary buffet breakfasts for two. My son and his cousin had buffet breakfasts, too. We only ate a little, though, because our young man wanted to stay in the pool for a few more hours before we check out of the hotel. Ergo, our breakfast was hurried.

Breakfast in a hurry, just two plates, sigh!

This was a decision we deeply regretted, especially after we learned that hubby’s group was allowed to check-out at 4:00 p.m, instead of the usual check-out time of 12:00 noon. Anyway, we really had a great time at Edsa Shangri-La Manila, and we hope to come back again soon.

  1. It has been a long long time since I last checked in here. I was newly married and now my eldest is already 12. Staying at Shangri la is a luxury. What I remember loving the most though is breakfast. They have one of the best breakfast spreads that would last me the whole day.

  2. It’s really one of the best hotels in Manila. The room looks really beautiful and spacious. And it’s nice to see you having a lot of fun with the whole family!

  3. It looks like a beautiful hotel to stay and unwind with the family. Pool is really important when we go vacation. My kids will not survive without the pool. I will keep this mind for future reference.

  4. My kids also loves to swim. So, they stay in the pool longer than staying elsewhere. Sometimes forgets to eat too.. The pool is always a big factor in choosing where to stay. Lol. Looks like you did have fun.😊

  5. What a luxurious way to spend the summer! I’m the staycation type of person (though I’m sometimes in the mood for an adventure, too) so I’m jelly. 😀

  6. A well spent day. And dining in at Corazon is an equally good decision. Love their paella negra. As always, staying in a hotel even for an overnight is something kids appreciate a lot. They could always use the swimming pool or be cozy inside the bathtub. Bonus is treating them to a nice dinner.

  7. Edsa Shang’s pool area is really attractive and can accommodate lots of guests even on a peak season. i love their beds too! so comfy 🙂

  8. Sayang, sana they informed you about the late check-out time during your check-in. The pool looks nice nga. I hope we could have a staycation there soon.

  9. I had a staycation at Edsa Shang once but that was a long, long time ago. Would be nice to go back soon. I forgot that’s what their pool looks like!

But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here.
