Indeed, there is nothing sweeter than home, but sometimes, when you need to refresh and unwind even just for a while, a sweet escape sounds like a bright idea. That being the case, there comes a time when it does not matter whether where you are heading over is far from the city or not as long as the place is clean and mellow, and offers the perfect view of sunset that you are craving to see for so many days, then it fits the bill. Hence, those were what I looked for when I needed an overnight escape from work and luckily, I came across to Meranti Hotel that is just an hour away from home, which surprisingly has a tranquil ambiance considering that it is located near Tomas Morato.
The room is a studio type room with minimalist design of white walls, two double beds and basic furniture.
Also, the hotel’s Wi-Fi is fast and reliable, and almost everything you need is all in this flat screen TV: any information about the hotel, attractions, alarm clock, weather forecast, music, news, cable channels and lastly, you can access your social media accounts such as Facebook and Twitter – cool, right?
What is more, the room comes with floor to ceiling window that exposes the view of the city – which I think will be perfect if our room was at the higher level of the hotel.
Nevertheless, the hotel has a penthouse where you can see the whole view of the city, plus, the relaxing view of sunset.
Also at the penthouse, Meranti Hotel has four feet aquarium type of pool or transparent swimming pool, which you can enjoy with the city view.
On the other hand, for the food, they have restaurant on the ground floor. But if you have other food cravings, you can explore outside the hotel because restaurants such as Max’s, Lola Café, Romulo Café, and many more are only few steps away from it.
And if you are wondering about the parking lot, a spacious parking space for the guest is available.
So whether you want to have a relaxing night without driving for couple of hours while stressing over the heavy traffic, or you are looking forward to partying all night at the bars in Tomas Morato and yet want to stay safe by ending your night in a nearby hotel, then, Meranti Hotel is surely where you should go most especially that their Summer Treat promo is still running: a special room rate of Php 4,500 inclusive of an overnight stay at standard room (for single and twin occupancy only), a 30-minute foot massage, a breakfast and a welcome treat as you arrived the hotel!
And oh, part of the welcome treat is this refreshing halo-halo that to be honest, is as delicious as how it looks in this photo!
