the last time i was in manila, i had a pre-planned friendly date with a well-known local travel blogger. i never thought twice of asking her out anyway, we were just like two independent souls who were total strangers but instantly ‘clicked’ when we met.
it was her idea of spending a night in a hotel with a trusted ‘someone’ and chose oakwood premier, located in the heart of ortigas in pasig city.
oakwood premier joy-nostalg center manila offers the ultimate experience in modern serviced living with 230 luxury apartments equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and world-class amenities to fulfill the modern-day client’s need for space and security in an elegant environment, combined with five-star service and the conveniences of home.
the sitting room of the deluxe suite really looks inviting that includes the home entertainment system with an lcd television (not pictured).
the basic kitchen items are all there from utensils, to pots and pans and even a dishwasher.
i wish i have the same bed back here in the mideast, i can literally sleep in this comfortable bed the whole day!
if you think viewing the televsion while having a luxurious bath raises your eyebrow, think again! ____________________________________________________________________________________
so, who did i spent it with? it’s my blogger-friend, chyng of no spam, no virus, no kiddin’! haha!
dinner is served a’ la carte in the oakroom international restaurant but chyng and i found it too pricey and both of us were craving for a buffet dinner so we went to ‘heat’ at the shangri-la to top off our indulging hotel stay. the next morning, we had oakroom’s buffet breakfast and joining us was chyng’s best buddy blogger, dyan of princess dyanie who came from her night shift work.
oakwood premier is actually considered as a full serviced apartment but it is really more than that and far more comfortable than hotels – and that is the oakwood difference.
