Wonderful Weekends at Makati Shangri-La Manila | Hotel Review


Over the holidays, a friend gifted me with a "Wonderful Weekends" overnight stay voucher at the Makati Shangri-La Manila hotel. Initially, I thought of booking it on my birthday but after coming back from Korea during the Christmas break, I badly need a staycation. 

I decided to book the voucher last February 17 to celebrate Chinese New Year (CNY) 2018 and Valentine's Day as well.

Tip #1: To fully enjoy the Makati Shangri-la Experience, families that booked a Wonderful Weekend staycation may avail of the 10am check-in and 4pm check-out that means more quality time spent together with the whole family. 

Horizon Club Lounge | Suite Weekend Escapade

Tip #2: If your room category is a Deluxe Suite, go directly to the Horizon Club Lounge on the 24th floor to skip the queue at the lobby check-in counter. 

At 10am, there was no room available. So much for the early check-in time. Anyway, breakfast at the club lounge starts at 6:30am until 12nn. We were given a table so we can eat brunch while waiting for a room to become available.

Horizon Club Lounge benefits:

  • breakfast from 6:30am to 12nn
  • afternoon snacks at 3pm (see photo above)
  • evening cocktails and canapes
  • all day refreshments

Tip #3: Go to Club Lounge at 3pm for some light snacks and refreshments

Makati Shangri-la | Deluxe Room

Wonderful Weekends Deluxe Room Php 8,800

After eating brunch, we were informed that our room will be available at 1pm. We were temporarily given a Deluxe Room so my daughter can change in her bathing suit. You can view the rest of the room here.

"There's nothing more satisfying than seeing a happy and smiling child."

She changed into her bathing suit but not after jumping up and down the bed. Staycations are really for kids. If she's happy, well, I am happy too!

The next day, my daughter made it to the cookie decorating class at 3pm. She made it just in time before our check-out. She was looking forward to the activity. Just look at her smile!
