A Day Well-Spent in Mandarin Oriental Hotel, Makati

Since I wanted to post something other than food, I realized it wouldn't hurt to share with you guys our hotel experience in Mandarin Oriental Hotel about a week ago (April 2014).

We ended up in this hotel because my mom bought a vouchers a few months ago. Luckily, they came in handy for the Holy Week vacation because at least we got to spend a day in a nice hotel without shedding out cash (i.e. we already paid for them long ago).

Mandarin Oriental Hotel has been long standing for decades. According to my dad, it underwent a lot of renovations already, and the lease contract with Ayala is about to expire. Hmmm, I wonder if it will still be renewed. (Well, I hope so because they have a great swimming pool!)

Now, let's go check the room out!

For my brothers and I, we requested this room with a King-Size bed. Nothing extremely unique can be found in this room, but I consider it neat, peaceful and comfy (although I think the room lacks enough breathable space).

Okay, it was uncanny because they granted my "more breathable space" wish, but since I didn't ask for something specific, all the free space went to the bathroom! Anyway, being a bathroom person (no pun intended), I was able to fully appreciate it.

Trivia about Me: If there are parts of a house I want to invest heavily in, one of them would definitely be the bathrooms. That's how I really love awesome bathrooms!

Oh boy, will you look at that! They have a tub! Wait, did you know I can spend an hour just by relaxing in a bath tub (of course, with water in it)?

Usually, I don't miss taking a bath in the tub, but because my brother told me the pool was great, I decided to ditch it that time. Fair enough, it was indeed a great decision! Here's a snapshot of the pool area.

Not only was the pool large enough for me to lap and exercise; it was also not too cold (which made my younger brother and I believe the pool is somewhat heated).

I don't know if I'm assessing irrationally, but this could be my most-loved pool among all the pools of the hotels I've been to here in Makati.

Okay, for you to have a better grasp of how the pool looks like, let me share another photo of the pool.

Great! That was almost everything about our experience here in Mandarin Hotel. Hopefully, I'll get to share more posts like this in the future, for now, let's get back to some food!
