Westin Manila Heavenly Staycation (First Look)

Westin Manila is back, finally opened by Robinsons Hotels and Resorts to provide a distinctive 5-star hotel experience for business travelers and the leisure staycation market in the Ortigas area. They are best known for their Heavenly Bed, the second hotel in Asia to deploy the signature Heavenly Bed. The hotel feels like home in the middle of a business district.

Here is a guide to a Westin Staycation in Manila.


Westin Manila’s official grand opening was held last March 11, 2023 after being delayed for 3 years. The latest hotel to open in the Ortigas Business District, it is located in a former hospital location where it is co-located with its high-rise residential condominium building.

The room felt luxurious but still homey and perfect for a staycation in the city.

The Heavenly Bed has its own memory-type foam integrated into the bed to make your sleep extra comfortable.

The double queen beds can comfortably accommodate a family of 4. Rache and I decided to sleep on our own beds and slept until 11:00am the next day.

Make sure to use their signature lavender balm and apply it on your wrist and forehead for an extra relaxing sleep.

The restroom has a separate toilet with its own wash basin, a spacious area with a wide mirror and a shower/bathtub area.

Make sure to allot time to enjoy your heavenly bath tub session.


The pools are located on the 4th floor area that connects to the residential building overlooking the San Miguel Avenue building scape.

The water was cold. Best to swim in the morning when the morning sun shines on the pool. But during the summer season, the water can cool you down as you hangout in the al fresco area.

We loved the Heavenly Bath Robe, so soft and felt like a warm embrace.

You can go on a run in the gym, but you can also schedule a run around Ortigas with a buddy.



Seasonal Tastes is our all-day dining restaurant with a live interactive kitchen offering buffet, a unique gastro lunch couture, signature global cuisines and local comforts, wholesome choices, and delectable a la carte options.

It was worth it to wake up to the hotel’s buffet breakfast. The kids loved the Pinoy offerings.

The soup station is available all-day in the buffet. I love starting my breakfast with a hot soup.

Loved their creamy and milky laksa soup which you can customize to your liking.

On Friday and Saturday dinners, they offer their signature Seafood Buffet.

Congrats to Chef Rej Casanova for curating the Eat Well Buffet with a balance of healthy, seafood, and meat dishes.

TIP: Make sure to go early and grab the limited big crab claws and have them steamed or grilled.

You’ll enjoy the eat-all-you-can crabs, shrimp, mussels, clams, and squid.

You can ask for butter garlic sauce to enjoy the seafood with.

For dessert, make sure to try their signature Portuguese Egg Tarts when available. Sarap nito!

We enjoyed their house-made ice cream and added lots of pistachios.


With a relaxing ambiance and outdoor terrace, the lounge has High Tea, Signature Coffee Roasts, live music and evening gin selections. We offer the Eat Well menu and Crafted at Westin beverage menu (artisanal cocktails infused with natural ingredients).

The Lobby lounge is designed like a big living and dining room with a homey feel surrounded by artworks. At night, there is acoustic entertainment where you can hang out with friends.

Check out the Lobby Lounge Menu: Small Bites, Light & Fresh, Fork & Buns | Eat Well Menu, Signature Teas | Kombucha, Sustainable Coffee, Sodas | Beers, Tonic Water, Gin Library | Gin Library | Vodka, Rum | Scotch Whiskey, Single Malt Whiskey | American Bourbon Whiskey, Irish Whiskey | Cocktails, Crafted at Westin |

We loved their Afternoon Tea with small bites and signature tea for our family meeting session.


Club lounge access Open: Sun-Sat, Open: 0600-2200
Complimentary food: Afternoon tea, Hors d’oeuvres, Dessert
Feature: High-speed Wi-Fi, Complimentary non-alcoholic beverages, Complimentary pressing

To make your staycation extra special, make sure to book the rooms with Westin Club lounge access.

We loved the curated food selection and the chance to enjoy the food in peace without the crowd.

Create your own cocktail. I personally enjoyed gin & tonic, red wine, whisky and the Bailey’s ending.

We love club lounge experiences when we go on staycations because we can be creative with our meals and enjoy more eating and bonding sessions with the family.


St. Francis of Assisi Church is just a short walk literally around the corner. Hear mass at 10:30am before lunch, or attend the 4:00pm English mass if you’re going to do a late check-out.

Overall, this is one of the best staycations we’ve had in a post-pandemic Manila. The Heavenly Bed sleep experience and the Westin Club Lounge experience were the highlights of the staycation for me. I loved the attention to details like the lavender balm, the bath robe, and the well-curated food. Make sure to book the Seafood Dinner Buffet for your staycation celebrations with the family.

I can’t wait for their Heavenly Spa and the Tapas Bar on the topmost floor to open.

Congratulations to Robinsons Land and the Marriott team for a job well done with the re-opening of the Westin brand in Manila! Galing!
