Sofitel Manila is the only hotel I've experience the feeling of being on holiday outside of Manila. This was my second time staying here and it's just gotten better. While I am an Accor member and frequent the Sunday brunch, we opted for another staycation with some friends to celebrate a birthday.
We booked 2 Club Millesime rooms this time as last year we stayed in a superior room, which was slightly tired. We were so happy. Once in our room the feeling of being out of the city started immediately. The check-in process at the club lounge is slow and needs some improvement. While the room was not ready, the actual check-in process was delayed due to a queue system problems.
We lounged by the amazing pool and enjoyed some bubbles and lunch at the Sunset Bar. Very enjoyable and the service around the pool and bar is superb. Thank you to Jomaire for looking after us and making us feel so welcome.
We then went to the Club Millesime Lounge for happy hour. This made our stay so much more special. As we were celebrating a birthday, staff members Sally and Kim made our celebration even more special. As we enjoyed the sunset and fireworks from a terrace off the club, the staff looked after us and even brought out a birthday cake and sang Happy Birthday. Very nice and thank you. One of those special touches that make you want to come back.
The bed in Sofitel could not be better. Honestly, you don't want to get up for breakfast. The Sunday brunch was great and never lets you go away being disappointed. All in all, a wonderful time at this oasis in the city. We look forward to returning. Thank you team Sofitel Manila.
