What happened when I went on a Chocolate Staycation

If you haven’t made plans for Holy Week, well, a staycation might just be for you, as you don’t have to travel a long way to get there. Shangri-la Makati is offering a wonderful staycation package promo at the moment, and if you’ve been following me and the Baby Barangay on Instagram, you’ll know how amazing it is!

The Baby Barangay (sans Nicole and her family) went on a chocolate staycation last weekend, and yes, you read “chocolate” right! Our families had the best time with the kiddos, decorating cupcakes and Easter jewelry boxes, and eating them all after, of course! No doubt, Shangri-la Makati is the best choice for a getaway this Holy Week, especially since they’re offering a yummy weekend for the whole family. Scroll down to see what they have to offer.

THE GRAND CHOCOLATE KITCHEN: Upon arriving at the hotel, you will find a colorful chocolate factory right in the middle of the hotel’s grand lobby. Here you’ll find all kinds of chocolates and sweet confections prepared by their amazing pastry chefs. I have to say, this creative installation is a perfect place to take family photos–the display is just super fun! This Holy Week, April 13, 14 and 15, kids can participate in cookie-decorating classes with the hotel’s friendly pastry chefs. The best part: they get to bring home their creations for free. Registration is at the selling booth of Sinfully near the concierge.


CHOCOLATE STAYCATION: This was just the perfect getaway for my little family. Shangri-La’s cutest Easter bunny, Rafa will show you an amazing time and will leave plenty of chocolates for the family to enjoy. And OMG, I need to tell you: Shangri-La makes THE BEST chocolates (try their white chocolate–so good)! Oh, and guests who book two nights at Makati Shangri‑La from now to April 16 will get two free tickets to the Easter Sunday Party! There will be surprise presents and chocolate treats at this super fun event!

EASTER SUNDAY PARTY IN THE RIZAL BALLROOM: On April 16, children will be in for the most unforgettable Easter egg hunt in a forest adventure and city adventure. They will be delighted to watch Rafa and Friends’ first musical show. There will also be a magic show, a giant sunken ship inflatable playground, children’s meals and wonderful Easter prizes to bring home. You cant miss this!

EASTER FAIR: Guests staying from April 13 to 16 will have the little ones entertained with interactive sessions in the comfort of the hotel facilities. Every day, there will be arts and crafts, cookie-decorating classes and children’s movie screening.

DINING SPECIALS: Throughout the season, guests may take the family on a culinary journey around the hotel and discover the best finds from five restaurants, namely, Circles, Inagiku, Shang Palace, Sage Bespoke Grill and Lobby Lounge. They can look for Rafa, Pao-Pao, Pochie and Bubbly at the restaurants for a nice surprise treat.

As a special treat, the Baby Barangay was invited to visit the pastry room, where all the chocolate magic happens! The amazing pastry chefs taught the kiddos to decorate yummy Easter cookies and treats. And each family got a giant jewelry box each that we were allowed to fill with as many chocolates and cookies as we wanted! What an amazing experience!!!

Of course, we all got to enjoy our “hard work”–we had all this for tea right after. Yummy!
