I have never expected that a staycation can be more exciting than usual. As the guest blogger for October, I received a warm welcome from Acacia Hotel Manila to spend my weekend in their cozy yet luxurious place. From the hotel’s stunning architecture to its accommodating personnel, one can never go wrong in choosing to lounge in Acacia Hotel Manila.
As I was entering the hotel, I was captivated by how the ambiance brought me a sense of regality I felt like a king in his majestic palace. But the place was not just about how the interior design made the atmosphere inside comfier because I was also overwhelmed by the amenities and services the hotel was offering. Even though I have been to other hotels and had recently enjoyed the sea in Camarines Sur, the swimming pool in Acacia Hotel still made me giddy and I immediately dipped in there. After having a fun time in the pool, the hotel rooms could provide more than just the normal comfort.
To tell more about my Acacia story here’s a little trivia from my #AcaciaFacts
There are six different rooms to choose from the hotel’s Deluxe Room to the Acacia Suite. The elegance of the room where I stayed in somehow eased the tiredness I got from swimming. I had taken staycation in a whole new level as I nestled in the hotel room after having endured a long trip and exhausting getaways in Camarines Sur. ,A Steakhouse and The Lobby at a Acacia a restaurant that offers various international cuisines and fine dining dishes, was where I had indulged some of the best food I had during my stay in the hotel.

Going back, Aside from the material things and smorgasbord that Acacia Hotel Manila could offer, the hotel staff and crew were also more than willing to greet the guests and very much eager to assist them. They never ceased to amaze me as every staff wherever place I go around the hotel never failed to smile at me. Aside from the setting, they were the ones who made me feel at home, calm, and peaceful.
As I was leaving Acacia Hotel Manila, sepanx (separation anxiety) got the best of me. Acacia Hotel Manila indeed spells luxury from the interiors to the facilities, services, and the hotel staff. I couldn’t wait to have another staycation there. And I would really recommend to my friends, followers, and readers that they visit and spend their leisure time in Acacia Hotel Manila.
