Hubby and I have been married for 3 years. As such, we already have a routine- weekday is for work, weekend is for dates. But sometimes life gets busy and we end up spending less time with each other. Thus we go out of the country once in a while to share new experiences and strengthen our bond.
Flying out can get expensive so a staycation in the city can be ideal. One home-away-from-home hotel is the Hyatt City of Dreams Manila.
Hyatt City of Dreams is part of City of Dreams Manila- an exhilerating 6.2 hectare integrated resort featuring international hotels and retail, world-class dining, and globally renowned casino, nightclub and entertainment venues within Parañaque’s Entertainment City.
They have a honeymoon package that includes a breakfast buffet for two at The Cafe, a bottle of wine and a box of pralines. Our room was spacious and modern. It was furnished in striped woods and warming shades of mustard, paprika and chocolate. In here you’ll find a fully-functioning work space with an ergonomic desk chair, a 47inch LED HDTV, and an iPod docking station.
The bed is wrapped in a 300 thread-count linen with non-allergenic feather pillows. Talk about having a good night’s sleep!
Since it’s our “honeymoon”, rose petals were scattered all over for that romantic touch.
The marble-lined bathrooms are equipped with twin vanities and a standalone tub and/or walk-in shower.
And look at our view from the room!
The pool enticed us to take a dip.
We started swimming by late afternoon and stayed until early evening.
We were famished by dinnertime so we headed to The Cafe located at the ground floor. It’s the main dining space at Hyatt City of Dreams Manila, offering a range of seating options, from cozy circular booths to private and semi-private rooms to standalone tables in the heart of all the action.
It’s an interactive show-kitchen restaurant, where live culinary theater is performed by experienced chefs at vibrant cooking and buffet stations, with hot dishes prepared to ensure freshness and optimum flavor. Each of the counters- Italian, Grill and Griddle, Asian, Deli, Comfort Food and Favorites, and Pastry- showcase a different culinary production.
Hubby and I had a feast by trying out almost all the cuisines over long conversations.
We ended the night with drinks at The Lounge, just a few steps away from The Cafe. The Lounge is a comfortable, stylish spot where you can enjoy well-crafted cocktails, premium wine, tea and coffee, as well as an international snack menu.
Come morning time, we went back to The Cafe for our breakfast buffet. Aside from the usual pancakes and waffles, I was thrilled to find healthy food choices.
The heavy and sumptuous breakfast was a great way to start a brand new day.
Located just three kilometers from Ninoy Aquino Internationl Airport, Hyatt City of Dreams Manila is perfect for those considering an airport hotel to stay in. Aside from that, it’s just a five-minute drive from SM Mall of Asia and the SMX Convention Center, and a ten-minute drive from the World Trade Center and Philippine International Convention Center. For those who want to do some sightseeing, you can go to nearby historical landmark Intramuros, the National Museum, and the Jose Rizal monument.
Hyatt City of Dreams Manila is indeed an ideal place for both leisure and business travelers. For hubby and I, it was a wonderful way to rekindle the spark in our relationship. 🙂
