Staycation in Alabang

My birthday is fast approaching and another year will be added to my age. Fortunately, my birthday falls on a long weekend so we can have an out-of-town trip or staycation. But I cannot decide yet because I have so many concerns about the schedule of my phototherapy and budget.

I’ve been checking all the promos of different hotels in the metro or nearby provinces and mas lalo ko nahirapan magdecide. Hehehe! Anyway, I’ll be sharing with you the hotels that we have tried in Alabang.

Acacia Hotel 

Acacia Hotel is the first hotel that we have tried in Alabang. I celebrated my birthday in Acaci restaurant last 2012. We enjoyed our lunch buffet so the following year, I booked a room to celebrate my birthday again at this hotel. The service is good and you can feel the hospitality. There are nearby groceries, fastfoods, and restaurants outside the hotel if you don’t want to eat in their restaurant.

The Bellevue Manila 

We celebrated my husband’s birthday in Bellevue last year, huling hirit before the school starts. The hotel has two pools that you can choose from and they have different restaurants where you can eat or buy food. I bought a mini cake and ensaymada in Pastry Corner. I love their ensaymada and cheese roll. Like Acacia Hotel, if you want to save on food, there are fastfoods and restaurant in the area. I hope I can stay in their branch in Bohol.

Crimson Hotel 

This hotel is the newest hotel in Alabang and this is the memorable birthday celebration we ever had so far. It was my birthday celebration and Crimson gave me a free cake and free dinner buffet. We also experienced Afternoon Tea Time for the very first time. The swimming pool is big. The room is nice but unfortunately, there is no bathtub in the room. They also have a branch in Cebu, their Cebu branch is much bigger and there are more activities so you will not get bored.

Vivere Hotel and Resort

The first luxury hotel in Alabang which has 200 different types of room. We went here last Black Saturday and stayed till Easter Egg Hunt event. The room has a living room and kitchen, so if you want to save money just bring your food and reheat it. They have two pools, one on the 4th floor and one on the 31st floor beside the "The Nest Dining in the Sky" restaurant. They have a branch in Anilao, Batangas where we celebrated our wedding anniversary.

  1. Hmmm mine can be called a business trip staycation. Because I only get the opportunity to stay in beautiful hotels whenever I am on work related trips. But soon if time and budget permits, I am sure to experience staycation with my family.

    1. You're still lucky to experience different hotels through business trips. :)

  2. Lovely to have a staycation. I too look for a tub in a hotel room but then unfortunately not many hotels have nice tubs in the rooms nowadays.

  3. I do love a staycation. Our company got a discount for Vivere at Alabang but I'm not sure yet if we'll be able to take advantage of it. Would you know if they have a pool?

    1. I'm not sure about the pool but I think they have it. :)

    2. I would love to have a staycation too. Looking at those photos I think The Bellevue Manila is best.

    3. We have different experiences on each hotel, there are pros and cons so I cannot tell which is the best hotel but we enjoyed each stay. :)
