A Staycation in Shangri-La Residences at the Fort

May 25, 2018

Last Mother’s Day weekend,  the family and I did something special…something we’ve never really done before! We had a  “staycation” in the new Shangri-La Residences at the Fort! 

It was exactly what we all needed as it was such a busy week for us and we all needed a quick change from the usual routine of spending the weekend at home.

I am quite familiar with the Shangri-La at the Fort Hotel, but this was my first time to actually see — and stay — at the Residences! And what a pleasant surprise it was for me!

From the very cozy, homey and intimate lobby of the Residences…

To the welcome treats inside the room!

Much to my kiddos’ delight, there was also a very cute teepee tent set up inside the living room!

And there were some more surprise gifts from the their favorite indoor playground, Adventure Zone! 

PS. We got the *Stay and Play Staycation Package*

And now let me show you the well-appointed rooms…

The Second Bedroom (which became our kids’ room)

The Kids’ Bathroom

We also had a nice and fully-fitted kitchen that had everything we needed during the weekend : refrigerator, microwave, toaster and a Nespresso coffee machine!

Not seen in this photo (but to the right of the kitchen) was the washer and dryer storage room! So yes this place really felt like home away from home!

Here I was also able to have my own quiet time while the kids were away… but not really away — as they were just a few floors down in Adventure Zone!

Oh how much fun they had here and wished they could spend an entire day in this playground!

The next day was a very special day — it was Mother’s Day! And boy did I get a wonderful surprise from them — my favorite fresh blooms and handwritten notes from my sweet kiddos!

Meanwhile I treated them to a hearty lunch at the High Street Cafe, located in the ground floor of the Shangri-La at the Fort Hotel,

Right after lunch, the kiddos headed to the pool for some water fun! This was such a welcome respite in this crazy summer heat!

Meanwhile… I ran to The Spa at Kerry Sports Manila  to get my (much deserved) massage!

It was 60-minutes of pure bliss! And how I wish that pampering lasted too for a whole day! 😉

It was one happy and special Mother’s Day weekend we all enjoyed!
