B Hotel Alabang // Best of Penthouse Birthday Staycation!

POV: We surprised Yugi on his 8th birthday with a penthouse suite staycation at B Hotel Alabang, good Filipino food, and a private outdoor hot tub experience with the boys. He thought we were going to McDonald’s to just grab a cheeseburger and a sundae to satisfy his birthday request.

Yugi loved every moment—from the comfy beds to the balloon popping, to the in-room dining (specially the breakfast), to the outdoor hot tub time with merienda.

Here is a guide to planning your own celebration staycation at B-Hotel.


About B Hotel Alabang

B-Hotel Alabang, a 152-room hotel managed by The Bellevue Group, is known for their southern warm hospitality. Pre-pandemic, they catered more to business travelers. Now they serve more families and leisure guests who rediscovered the hotel for intimate and celebration staycations away from the crowd.

You can ask for help from the B Hotel team to do simple birthday celebration decors with lots of balloons. We also brought our own balloons because Yugi loves popping lots of balloons.

The Penthouse Suite measures 47 to 51 sqm with 1 king bed and a work area equipped with central air conditioning, satellite/cable LED TV, free fast Wi-Fi access, and in-room safe.

It can accommodate up to 2 adults and 2 children (with extra bed if needed).

The bathroom has a bathtub, which is important for the birthday boy, and a separate shower area and toilet. The liquid soap and shampoo are in refillable containers for sustainability.

We loved the spacious living and dining areas with a modular kitchen and a business district view of Alabang.

We loved the family picture and handwritten note to welcome us to our penthouse staycation.

These days, we prefer intimate in-room dining to celebrate with the family safely.


Prime Cafe Food

Prime Cafe, specializing on Filipino cuisine and some Japanese dishes, is the only restaurant outlet in the hotel that provides all-day dining .

Prime Cafe Menu: Soups & Salads, Sandwiches | Pasta, Prime Cafe Favorites | Japanese Menu, Bistro Bar Chow, Rice Bowls | Non-Alcoholic Beverages | Alcoholic Beverages

Johnny’s Steak (₱1,250). 220G US Prime Rib Eye, Mashed Potato, Buttered Broccoli, Corn, Carrots, Mushroom Gravy

The boys love their steak cooked well done, with buttered vegetables and their own mushroom gravy. This is one of the dishes the boys keep fighting over but we always emphasize “hating kapatid”.

Crispy Pork Kare Kare (₱350). Pork Belly, Thick Peanut Sauce, String Beans, Eggplant, Steamed Rice

We also liked their Kare Kare with creamy smooth peanutty sauce, which was a bit sweet and paired well with their salty bagoong. The crispy texture of the pork cut through the thick sauce. Best to eat with plain white rice. So good. 🙂

Cheesy Beef Caldereta (₱480). Beef Stew, Tomato Sauce, Steamed Rice

The caldereta has a thick tomato sauce reduction with burnt melted cheese on top. Sarap din!

B Pancit Guisado (₱280). Stir Fry Egg and Rice Noodles, Shrimp, Squid, Crispy Pork Belly

For long life, it’s always tradition to have noodles in any celebration. The B Hotel Pancit Guisado did not disappoint and was not too heavy. Still malasa even the next day.

Penne Carbonara (₱350). Creamy Pasta, Bacon, Ham, Mushroom, Garlic Bread

The boys loved the Carbonara with the penne absorbing the sauce. This was gone in seconds.

Crispy Palabok (₱380). Crunchy Glass Noodles, Shrimp, Squid, Roasted Garlic, Egg, Crispy Pork Belly

This was served with tall crispy noodles, with the sauce poured table side and mixed with the palabok noodles and ingredients to whet the appetite. Way better than Jollibee, but I like my palabok to have more salty shrimp and more crunch from the roasted garlic.

Thank you to Chef Andrea for the awesome Filipino food during our stay! She also serves Japanese comfort food like ramen and katsudon that the kids loved. 🙂


Birthday Cake

Strawberry Field (₱3,700). Our strawberry shortcake with even more strawberries on top. Perfect for all strawberry lovers.

Get the best birthday cake in Alabang from Sainte Anne Cakes Manila, known for their freshly homebaked cakes made in small batches with real fruits and all-natural ingredients.

Before going to B Hotel, pick up your cake at #157 Guava, Ayala Alabang, c/o Kristine Yeung.

(Note: Cake is best consumed on the day it is picked up so make sure to keep the cake refrigerated once received. Good for 1-2 days only.)

Lola Pitang’s Sansrival ( Half at ₱520 | Whole at ₱990 )

Birthday is not complete without the best sansrival in Pampanga—Pitang’s Sansrival.

About Pitang’s Bakeshop

Pitang’s Bakeshop and Café was founded by the children of Josefa Henson Narciso as a tribute to her delicious and enjoyed-by-everyone pastries. Through the years, her recipes were kept alive by her children and passed on from generation to generation. These cakes and pastries are personally prepared by Josefa’s daughters; made with the finest ingredients and baked to perfection.

The business started on a made-to-order basis for family friends. The networks grew from close family friends and relatives to friend’s of friends and so on. From this, the children decided to put up a bakeshop and spread the wonderful goodness Josefa passed on to her children.

The sansrival was dense, with alternating layers of crisp and chewy meringue with most of the butter icing on top. Not to sweet—with toasted cashew slivers to cut through the sweetness. Addicting on the first bite. Ang sarap!

DM: @mommy_glennis or your Pampanga foodie friend to get this in Manila


In-Room Breakfast

We preferred having our breakfast in-room with a good morning view of Alabang.

The tocino was the best—well marinated, meaty and best dipped in vinegar. All the boys loved it.

We loved their Tapsilog, with a big meaty serving, marinated with a sweet salty flavor. Sarap!


Birthday Mass

St. Jerome Emiliani and Sta. Susana Parish Mass Schedule

When staying over the weekend, celebrate mass at St. Jerome at 11:00am, the perfect time just before lunch.

(Tip: Make sure to arrive 30 minutes earlier to secure a spot inside the air-conditioned church.)

B Hotel can arrange the drop off and pick you up after mass.


Outdoor Hot Tub

The outdoor tub is heated and treated to make sure you get a clean and safe private hot tub session.

(Note: they are fixing the blowers to complete the Jacuzzi-like experience.)

It’s located on the 2nd floor and you have to enter the door leading to the gym.

Make sure to book your outdoor tub session upon check-in. You can also order snacks.

Calamari Frito (₱320)
Nachos con Carne (₱450)
Cheese Sticks (₱220)
Bistro Sisig (₱250)

We loved the nachos, cheese sticks, calamares and their crunchy sisig on a sizzling plate.

The best part was night swimming in the rain in a heated tub! Sarap. 🙂


Azurea Massage

Azurea Spa Services | Retreats and Other Services

We had the best Swedish Massage from the Azurea Spa of Bellevue Manila. So good!

Usually the one hour massage is ₱1,100, but you can also use the spa facilities there like their sauna and jacuzzi at Bellevue. At B Hotel, they charge ₱700 only for in-room massage.


Final Thoughts

B Hotel Staycations are the best if you are looking for an affordable penthouse staycation for your next family celebrations. The kids raved about how comfortable the bed was and how they were able to sleep soundly. I love the in-room dining with Chef Andre’s Filipino food and the thoughtful effort with the birthday decor plus the nice family portrait touches. Best of all, you can have an outdoor hot tub session all to yourselves while enjoying merienda.

It’s a good urban escape. You are still near the mall if you want to watch a last full show or go on a birthday shopping spree. Don’t forget to celebrate mass for the birthday celebrant!

Thank you to Glennis and the B Hotel team for an awesome penthouse staycation experience!

One thing noticeable is how hospitable the service staff throughout the hotel were—from our driver Win to Chef Andrea, to all the service team that provided all the things we needed like HDMI cable, additional water, etc. during our stay. Salamat!
