Best Western Plus Antel Hotel: For Remarkable Makati Staycations!

Best Western Plus Antel Hotel Makati Staycation When In Manila Mae Ilagan Day 2-23

I love staycations! Nothing like spending a weekend in a new environment, meeting new people and experiencing new flavors. Last weekend, we were blessed with yet another meaningful stay for we got the chance to get to know one of the country’s most progressive cities – Makati City!

Makati City is known as the Philippine’s business capital and also one of the classiest cities in the land. The country’s financial center, earning it the nickname, “Wall Street of the Philippines.”  The major banks, corporations, department stores as well as embassies of the different nations are based here. But you see, despite its image to be only known for business and trade, there’s this other side of Makati which I believe people should know of.

 

Last weekend, we decided to stay at the Best Western Plus Antel Hotel, situated beside A. Venue Mall. Best Western is a well known international hotel chain so we also wanted to experience their own signature hospitality.

Our room was like a studio type condo. It even had a dining table and a mini-kitchen with microwave making it ideal for long staying guests or for people who wish to cook meals during their stay.

 

Perfect for people who wish to escape the stresses of the outside world, without having to travel away from the metro.

Another great reason why we enjoyed our staycation at Best Western Plus Antel Hotel was because of the countless new flavors and eats which we discovered around A.Venue! This side of Makati is always full of life! Never a dull moment!

If it’s Chinese Szechuan/Sichuan food you’re looking for, check out Chuan Xiang!

Szechuan/Sichuan is a style of Chinese cooking originating from Sichuan province in southwestern China. It has bold and spicy flavours from liberal use of garlic and chili peppers, as well as the unique flavor of Sichuan peppers.

 

If you love spicy food, then this is the place to be  in Makati!

I remember leaving the Antel Hotel a bit teary-eyed coz I was beginning to really like not only the hotel but the community which surrounds it.

We’ve only scratched its surface and I bet there are so much more to discover and experience in this area….  We can’t wait to come back!

Next time I think about the word staycation, I will definitely remember this place! =)
