SATURDAY (Day 1)

SOFITEL-137.jpg We checked in at 3pm on a Saturday, which is the earliest check-in time for Sofitel. SOFITEL-1.jpg For the ultimate experience, we recommend booking through Club Millésime at the 10th floor.

SOFITEL-29.jpg What better way to start your staycation than an intimate cocktail with the one you love? 🙂

LE BAR ROMANTIC DINNER

After checking in, and having cocktails at Club Millésime, we decided to have dinner at LE BAR. SOFITEL-117.jpg LE BAR is the lobby bar of Sofitel Hotel which is a bistro, music lounge, and Galette – patisserie and chocolaterie in one. It’s the best place to eat in Sofitel as an alternative to Spiral where you can enjoy food and pair it with the extensive list of French and European wines.

SUNDAY (Day 2)

LE SPA COUPLES MASSAGE

Early in the morning, we sneaked out and left the boys in the room to have a massage at LE SPA. LE SPA-19.jpg LE SPA is our favorite spa for the most luxurious couples massage in Manila. We enjoyed our LE SPA “Duo” Couples Romantic Ritual in the Harmonie room last time. For a limited time, Le Spa at Sofitel introduces a unique “Vinotherapy”, using the latest in wine cosmetics from Les Sources de Caudalie with traditional massage treatments. They also use organic beauty products from Thémaé, harnessing the power of tea for beauty rejuvenation. Read more: LE SPA: Secret Wine Lover’s Treatment at Jardin d’Eden

SPIRAL SUNDAY BRUNCH

You have an option to have breakfast, but decided to skip it so as not to ruin our appetites for the much-anticipated Spiral Sunday Brunch! Sofitel Spiral Buffet-25.jpg SPIRAL is the gold standard for the most extensive and interactive gourmet dining buffet in Manila. A year after it was launched, it continues to be hailed by foodies as Manila’s BEST buffet. Read more: Top 10 Favorites in SPIRAL Sunday Brunch – the BEST Buffet in Town Sofitel-141.jpg Make sure to arrange for a late checkout at 4pm, because the Spiral Brunch finishes around 3pm. There’s no extra charge for Club Millésime guests (depending on room availability). I must say, this was one of our most memorable foodie staycations in Manila! 🙂
