Staycation at Acacia Hotel Manila

For me, staycations are always worth it–you get the same amount of rest and relaxation without having to leave the city. I never truly appreciated this until I had a baby, because of course, vacations are so much harder to plan when you have one. And though I love that I get to work from home and manage my own time, it can get hectic with all the mommy duties adding up to the list of things to do. That’s why I always snap at the chance of going on one, especially when it’s a well-loved hotel like Acacia Hotel Manila.

I took over Acacia Hotel’s Instagram account yesterday (follow them at @acaciahotels) and shared some of our family photos from our mini vacation. We truly had the best time. Acacia Hotel has so much to offer–apart from their luxurious, spacious rooms, they amazing food (you have to try A Steakhouse), a gorgeous, scenic pool, a relaxing spa and a fully equipped gym. It was our home away from home–definitely a vacation, but still in the metro so we could go malling and meet up with our friends.

Not a lot of people know that Acacia Hotel is actually an independent Filipino hotel brand. I love that it focuses on giving guests unparalleled Filipino hospitality while providing world-class hotel service–this makes me proud to be Pinoy when I’m here because I could see that we could compete with international hotel franchises. Managing the hotel is Enderun Colleges, the country’s leading hotel and restaurant management institution.

The hotel is located in Alabang, which is one of my favorite things about it because (1) I used to live in this area, (2) it is not as congested as the other cities, (3) Alabang is complete–you have the best malls, groceries and restaurants here! Acacia Hotel is right is the heart of Alabang which makes me happy, because I always loved living here (my plan is to live here again someday).

When you step in the hotel there is something cool and unique about it. It boasts of cutting-edge design that offers a fresh new take on five star luxury hotels in the Philippines. Patterns, shapes, vibrant colors and works of art complement each other exuding elegance and style–and you can definitely see this in their lobby. Their rooms, on the other hand, are super cozy and relaxing, as they are bathed in warm earth tones.

Definitely, The Fernandezes enjoyed their stay at Acacia Hotel. Check out our photos from our relaxing staycation.

IMG_6880This painting at the lobby of Acacia Hotel is so eye-catching. Can you see the fire-breathing dragon?

IMG_6881Carlos, Tristan and my yaya getting ready to check-in. Of course, I took this photo.

IMG_6883My little one was excited for our staycation.

IMG_6886And… there it is. Our gorgeous room. I miss it already.

IMG_6889Acacia Hotel is the sweetest. They set up this crib for Tristan as OMG he loved it so much, especially the pillows!

IMG_6892What a beautiful (and yummy) welcome. Yes to strawberry white chocolate cakes! IMG_6888Our room was so cozy and spacious. This living area is lovely.

IMG_6903He immediately went for the pillows. He loved this crib!

IMG_7026So Tristan and I like playing dress up when we go on staycations. Haha, not. This was taken during Halloween! IMG_6939My vampire baby.

IMG_6967My little one loved our room (and so did mommy)!

IMG_6935These two are everything to me.

IMG_6962Bet you didn’t know Minnie Mouse had a vampire baby.

IMG_6973Hay, this lovey of mine.

IMG_7058This view! Told you Alabang is the best.

IMG_7086Room service at the door asking me what pillow I preferred: latex (anti-allergy), memory foam or aromatherapy. I chose the latter, and it smelt like lavender.

IMG_7101For dinner, we ate at A Steakhouse, which is right at the lobby. The food was incredible!!! If you are looking for a delicious restaurant to indulge in, this is it! Of course, you have to order steak!

IMG_7115For our appetizer, we got Baked Oysters. Ahhh, this photo is making me crave for this.

IMG_7125And Lobster! The tail was amazing with cheese on top, and we had the rest opened after. Yum!

IMG_7145This was my order: Surf and Turf! This dish was cooked just the way I wanted. More steak, please!

IMG_7169And for dessert, we had Apple Pie, Blueberry Cheesecake and Mud Pie. These were shared, by the way. Though I would’ve been able to finish all three–they were so good.

IMG_7162What an amazing meal. We love A Steakhouse!

DSC07220After, Carlos and I were treated to massages. This was just what we needed.

IMG_7053Good morning! What a beautiful day it was. We felt so happy and relaxed.

IMG_7046Even Tristan looked refreshed haha.
