Edsa Shangri-La Hotel Staycation

Being under stress for the past few weeks, sis and I decided to have a weekend staycation at Edsa Shangri-La Hotel.

Amidst the busy city district of Ortigas, Edsa Shangri-La Hotel offers a refreshing escape away from the smog-filled city.

We booked ourselves at the Garden Wing which was farther from the main lobby but nearer to Shangri-La Mall.

The other wing is the Tower Wing were the convention halls and restaurants are.

This is the Garden Wing Lobby.

The hotel was not so crowded so we didn't have to wait for our turn to use any of the two elevators.  Although if you have to wait, there are two kinds of newspapers available as early as 5 am in the morning.

The fancy hallways exudes luxury.

Finally, we reached our room with two twin beds.

 Everything was flawlessly clean except for the dusty TV remote.

We even had complimentary banana breads waiting for us.

And, the greatest advantage of staying at the Garden Wing Deluxe is the breathtaking view of the pool surrounded by lush greens of coconut trees and some cityscape too.

If you're a workaholic like me, you'd appreciate a few glance to watch the wind blowing the coconut tree leaves.  The wifi is also fast and reliable.

Bathroom

The bathroom is clean and spacious.  They have the usual compliments.  And, ladies will also appreciate the ponytailers.

We have a shower, bath tub and a retractable clothing line.  Too bad we didn't bring any bath foam.  But, I still spent a relaxing time in the tub.  I loved that they have bathroom sound system which port sounds from the TV so I was able to listen to the news too.  Perhaps, the only thing I would suggest in their bathroom is to have a bidet.

There's a bench closet for our bags...

electric kettle for coffee or tea and a fridge.

You can secure your belongings in the safe which we felt we didn't need.  And, you can even iron your clothes.

I wanted to try the Gym.  But, decided to take a quick night stroll instead.

I was tempted to chill by the pool bar...

or get a night massage but decided to head back and stay snuck up in the room instead.

  I really appreciate how well-lit the place is.

Come morning sis woke me up at 6 am to have a morning swim with her.  We claimed our towel and took a dive.

The kids pool has a slide...

And, aside from the playground they have this too.

The adult pool is divided into two parts: 4 feet and 9 feet. 

After our swim, we went availed our complimentary breakfast buffet at the Heat before checking out.

Overall, our Travel Tripters staycation at Edsa Shangri-La Hotel was an awesome experience.  The staffs are courteous and the buffet sealed the deal.
