A great hotel can be the highlight of your trip or staycation, the key that unlocks a location, even a destination in itself. Although we barely spend much time in our hotel room while currently on a trip, we do find a good hotel experience to be essential in order for us to truly enjoy our staycation.
Starting and ending the day at a place you love just makes all the difference in upgrading your trip from good to awesome. Some of my favourite trips have included very nice hotels. For most of our trips, we always choose to stay in a boutique hotel. Due to its’ unique settings, boutique hotels are perfect for those travellers who are adventurous at heart.
The Azumi Boutique Hotel has a balanced mix between cozy and modern ambience and that meets urban contemporary. Boutique hotels are considerably smaller than the regular all-inclusive properties. The Azumi Boutique Hotel, with 186 suites that includes an entertainment area, dining area, pools, spa, bars and lounges. Style meets grace in this amazing boutique hotel ideal for couples and corporate beings who believe that green is the new black.
From the moment you enter this amazing hotel, it opens up to a bright and spacious lobby designed by Ivy and Cynthia Almario, with natural light flowing throughout the entire floor made possible by its floor-to-ceiling glass walls. The rooms of Azumi, with their individual balconies, create a feeling of open space and an appreciation of the spectacular view of the cityscape of Metro Manila. Each room is a product of the relentless pursuit for the best design solutions delivered in a relevant fashion.

5 Reasons why I love Azumi Boutique Hotel?
- Centrally-Located at Filinvest City (Central Business District of Alabang).
The Azumi Boutique Hotel is located at the heart of the business district of Alabang which is the Filinvest City. The hotel actually is in front of Molito or Alabang Town Center. It’s great that the hotel is accessible in the business district so that we can explore the beauty of South and discover new things around it.
- Stunning suites.
Hotel rooms are known for having terraces with views that are perfect for whenever you just want to unwind. You sit on the wonderful terrace, look at the calm and airy surroundings, take in the scent of urban escape of south and don’t have to do anything because you are on holiday and your only goal is to rest and relax in the city. You can sit like that for a short while or for hours. While you enjoy yourself, someone else makes lunch and cleans up everything that needs tidying. You only have to sit back and enjoy your well-deserved holiday and the magnificent view.
This is important. Probably the most important item on our list. It doesn’t matter how great the rest of the hotel is if your room isn’t clean and comfortable. During our stay, we were very satisfied with our room. The beds are so soft and comfortable! We had such a hard time getting out of bed in the morning.

- Amazing outdoor lounge and Instagrammable corners.
Azumi Boutique Hotel’s primary task is to take care of you and your needs and wishes 24 hours a day. Every company has its duties, its mission and what it strives for. The mission of a hotel is to make you feel not only good but great! The Azumi Boutique Hotel is designed by imaginative architects and designers with superb materials so don’t be surprised by Azumi’s lush interiors in every corner. I was even able to take a lot of photos from our stay because every nook and corner of Azumi is beautiful.
A stay in Azumi is incomplete without a trip to their roof deck. It serves as a sensory escape with its 360-degree view of the Alabang skyline. If you are looking for a breathtaking panorama to start or end a hectic day, lounge by the roof deck with your favorite drink. You can also enjoy the splendid sunset while taking a dip in Azumi’s saltwater infinity lap pool, definitely one of the best in Metro Manila! Business meetings and social gatherings can also be arranged in the roof top function room for social or corporate events.
Providing accommodation is never just about taking care of basic needs, it’s much more than that. Every excellent hotel knows this.
- Fantastic Service.
When we first arrived at Azumi, we were planning on checking in really quick and immediately go to an event that we were late for. Upon arriving somewhere in Alabang, our taxi driver accidently dropped us off at the end of the block instead of the main entrance of Azumi but luckily, the bellman saw my mom looking for the hotel and came running over to take our bags. Such a small thing, but we really appreciated him going the extra mile and helping us save time. I also love how the staff greeted us every time they see us. Azumi really has a friendly and community-oriented staff.
- Feels Like Home.
This is probably the greatest compliment we can give to Azumi Boutique Hotel. We just felt so at home during our stay! There’s such a relaxed, easy vibe at this hotel. Combined with the lounge areas, the friendly staff, and the friendly visitors, we just felt like we can roam around the hotel like it’s our own home. We aren’t the only ones that felt this way. One of the guests that I talked to said that their stay at Azumi “feels like home”, convenience and location wise. We totally get it and we will most definitely be back.
For your dining pleasure, you will find the iconic Romulo Café at the lobby where guests can enjoy one of a kind Filipino cuisine. The food at Romulo’s is definitely amazing! (A must try is their Kare-Kare and Pork Binagoongan). Also located in the lobby is Nail Spa, a chic salon for that much needed relaxation.
For more shopping and dining choices, Azumi is quite near Alabang Town Center and Molito Mall. For emergency and early flights, the renowned Asian Hospital and Medical Center and the Ninoy Aquino International Airport are also in close proximity to the hotel.
Azumi’s innovative concept, however, goes beyond aesthetics as it utilizes Japanese technology in the construction of its rooms with Daiken Healthy Ceiling which absorbs sound, heat and moisture. Likewise, Azumi uses ECOCARAT, a “breathing tile” made of natural raw materials that not only provides a three-dimensional look to the walls but is specifically designed to absorb humidity, foul odors, and harmful substances. These features generate the same air quality found in large parks, keeping guests feeling refreshed indoors. Because Azumi is designed to be energy-efficient, it is able to save on costs – savings that it passes on to its guests. Azumi offers high quality accommodations at rates that are considered more than reasonable. Truly a value for money experience.
Azumi Boutique Hotel is managed by Hospitality Innovators, Inc. ( HII ), one of the leading Filipino hotel and property management companies that specializes in creating a unique personality for properties and enhancing their economic returns. Since its inception, HII has continuously re-imagined and transformed the management and operations of hotels, serviced apartments and other properties. This is the Innovision of HII.
It is no wonder that rave reviews on travel websites are not uncommon. Azumi Boutique Hotel is rated as one of the top hotels in the metro south.
