Rest and Dine at Acacia Hotel Manila

A few days ago, my colleagues and I were invited by some friends from Acacia Hotel Manila for lunch and a quick tour of this uniquely Filipino hotel brand. The 5-star hotel, owned by Lucio Co of S&R and Puregold, is conveniently located in the corner of Commerce Avenue and Filinvest Corporate Center making everything (church, malls and hospitals) easy to reach.

Since they were fully booked, we got to see two room types only -- deluxe (34sqm.) and junior suite (43sqm.). All 261 guest rooms have customized orthopedic beds with memory foam tops, flat screen televisions with multimedia box, executive desks, coffee and tea making facilities, a fully stocked mini-bar and separate bathroom and tub.

Cotton, pillow or foam -- did I mention that you can select which pillow type you prefer?

Acacia has a decent-sized swimming pool open from 7am to 9pm located on the 3rd floor of the hotel with a view of Alabang. I'm thinking of sunset and cocktails just by looking at this photo.

After the quick tour, we were ushered to Acaci Restaurant for the lunch buffet. With its floor to ceiling glass windows, diners are treated with sumptuous Asian and International Cuisines with a view of the bustling city. The choices are not much but I love the Salad Section -- the Chicken and Grapes Salad is a must try!

The Tuna and Salmon Sashimi were not fresh, I got a few slices but taking into consideration the distance that we had to travel from Alabang back to our office, I figured it's not worth the risk should I get an upset stomach. The Sushi were not worth the calories either.

Remember to save some space for Acaci's Cheesecake and Carrot Walnut Cake, I got a few tiny slices that went well with Twining's English Breakfast Tea to end a perfect lunch.

I can't wait to finally take sometime off from work and school and get a much-needed staycation at Acacia Hotel. Must book soon!
