SOFITEL is one of the best “staycation” escapes for Manileños because of its awesome sunset experience; Spiral – the best buffet in Manila, and Le Spa — a favorite massage experience for couples.

We have blogged about this a number of times through the years, and it continues to be our favorite hotel resort in Manila:

Here’s an updated photo essay of a Sofitel “Staycation” experience and SPIRALS’ Champagne Breakfast:

I love their  attention to details specially to make the kids stay longer to have more fun by using  the  “Little Prince “theme.

Sofitel Adventure-23.jpg
Best of all, there’s a Gymboree where you can leave your kids to play all they want!

Sometimes you get to witness a romantic sunset wedding.

Here’s a tip for couples: Book the Jardin D’ Eden couples room in Le Spa for your couple’s massage from 4-7pm.

SPIRAL’s Champagne Breakfast

Spirals Ultimate Sunday Brunch-17.jpg
The Spiral’s breakfast gets my vote for the Best Breakfast Buffet in Manila. The buffet offerings are totally different from the SPIRAL’s Dinner and Sunday Brunch Buffet.

SPIRALS Breakfast by Sofitel Manila-50.jpg
Most guests would start with the most-raved-about feature of the buffet – the Cheese Room.

SPIRALS Breakfast by Sofitel Manila-2.jpg
You have a choice of different freshly baked French bread.

SPIRALS Breakfast by Sofitel Manila-45.jpg
You can select from  a good variety of fresh whole fruits, 

SPIRALS Breakfast by Sofitel Manila-23.jpg
and sliced fruits.

SPIRALS Breakfast by Sofitel Manila-51.jpg
The French station is converted into an egg station,

… with a nice hard-boiled egg’s nest presentation.

In the teppanyaki section, you can order from a limited selection of meat.

I love the Japanese rice for breakfast,

… with the sausages and hams in the churrasco section.

There are good selection of vegetarian dishes in the Indian section.

You have to try the Indian Pancakes,

You can choose from three different versions of congee…

I love the Kim Chi in the Korean section to mix with my rice to add a spicy “sting” to it.

The best part of the breakfast buffet are the Filipino options.

If you want to be healthy, go for the muesli and the preserved fruits options, or

…choose from a wide variety of fresh yogurt!

My kids enjoyed the yogurt buffet,

To top it all, they serve unlimited champagne during the weekend!

This is simply the perfect breakfast for our family!

Sofitel Swimming Lagoon-1.jpg
After breakfast, you can go to the cold swimming pool waters of Sofitel.

Although, the kids are still not allowed to slide, we enjoyed playing around the rocks and the waterfalls.

SPIRALS Breakfast by Sofitel Manila-55.jpg
Overall, it’s one of our most memorable family escapes right in the heart of Metro Manila.

Highly recommended for balikbayans and tourists, for “staycations” and  celebrating anniversaries.

  1. Not sure if it also applies in this gymboree but they only allow kids up to 5 years old. Sometimes its 60 months and under only

  2. maybe the welcome chocolates and gummy bears were only bec you were invited by the hotel. i have an accor card and my free room did not include welcome treats nor free breakfast

  3. I agree with Sunshine. We stayed there last December, and service was mediocre. They even forgot to inform us that the cake for my daughter’s birthday is not available… We were waiting the whole night.
