Family Fun in Edsa Shang https://flic.kr/p/HQLSHY You can leave the kids to have fun in the play area just beside HEAT where you can keep an eye on them while you continue to enjoy the HEAT buffet. https://flic.kr/p/24THHao After the HEAT lunch, you can head to the pool and enjoy the mini water park with the kiddie ones. Yes, you can now have a day access to the pool until 6pm. https://flic.kr/p/25UK7b5 This is the best hotel swimming pool in the metro because it is surrounded by trees with a cool pool design.


Final Thoughts https://flic.kr/p/GjmFW2 Edsa Shangri-La is centrally located so it’s perfect for a weekend getaway and a perfect place to stay when you do some errands around the metro. I would suggest to go on a staycation from Saturday to Sunday and ask for a late checkout. You can celebrate a special occasion with the family during the Sunday Side of HEAT during lunch. Treat the kids to swimming pool for fun. They can have day access to the pool even if they don’t stay overnight. https://flic.kr/p/25V39x5 EDSA SHANGRI-LA MANILA Address: 1 Garden Way, Ortigas Centre, Mandaluyong City 1650 Philippines Telephone: +632 633 8888 E-mail: esl@shangri-la.com Facebook: Edsa Shangri-La Manila Instagram: @edsashangrila Twitter: @EdsaShangriLa Youtube: Edsa Shangri-La, Manila Website: http://www.shangri-la.com/manila/edsashangrila/ Rates: The cheapest weekend rate for Deluxe Garden Twin: ₱ 6,500 /night.
