Staycation has never been more satisfying. More so, spending leisure time with your family makes the overall experience worthwhile. Completing a perfect work-free scenario is along weekend. I’m thankful that I got to experience this with my family during one of the most
awaited long weekends in the Philippines. Aside from travelling, some activities I enjoyed the most include chilling in a hotel room while watching a movie or series. Like most people, I prefer to call it staycation. It’s basically a vacation. But instead of spending your energy on touring around the city or taking snapshots of great architectural designs, you lie on a hotel bed and watch your favorite
TV series all day long. Or munch on your comfort snacks. It’s a time when we take a break from work and enjoy our toxic-free days before plunging into another round of workload.
Staycation with Family ( Guest with my Tita and Cousin )
To be honest, at first, I had low expectations for Novotel. But as soon as we were gladly welcomed into one of their Executive Suites which perfectly fits a family, I was immediately amazed. It was a great thing that Novotel treats every guest a VIP. Everything was exquisite and
I couldn’t help but take photos of the interiors already. Being inside one of their topnotch hotel rooms, we surely had a luxurious experience.

Aside from comfortability, it was the modern aesthetics of the hotel that instantly made me fall in love with Novotel. It boasts its 401 non-smoking rooms and suites that are suitable for staycations and business trips. Located in Metro Manila’s leisure and business district, Novotel is actually a perfect place for your next staycation specially if you want to experience the northern part of Metro Manila ( Quezon City ) and Near the famous Big Dome ( Araneta Center ) which some of the games of different sports, concerts and more happened.
In the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city, the hotel complements well with the city vibe as it exudes a modern yet serene look and feel. It’s as if it’s a sanctuary for those who want to take a break from the noise and stress of the city. Despite being in the heart of all the
metropolitan happenings, Novotel still gives you the luxury of relaxation and enjoyment. ( More photographs below )
Not to mention that more than the aesthetics of the rooms, the convenience truly made it my favorite hotel in the North. If you want to grab some snacks, you can immediately go to Convenience stores, Malls and Grocery shops near the hotel ( P.S even the famous Farmer’s Market of Cubao is infant of the Hotel! ). Also, just a walking distance from the location of the hotel is amall where you can stroll whenever you want. For me, it’s important that a hotel is accessible to places of entertainment. It’s also a bonus that Novotel is only a few walks away from one of thebiggest in-door stadium in the country. So whether you’re a local or a tourist who will be staying around Quezon City, choosing Novotel will be one of the best decisions you can make.
Also, the Executive Suite is a great place where you can work, play, and unwind. With the 59 square meter space, you can do almost anything you fancy ( Favourite part of the room is the tub!!! Very fancy!! ) . After my travels abroad, I think that I also deserve this break. Thankfully, a long weekend came along where I could spend a staycation with my family. As a person from the South of Metro Manila, I didn’t mind the
travel going to the Northern part just to stay in a hotel as luxurious as Novotel.

Honesty time! I wasn’t expecting that Novotel would be as fancy as I imagined it to be, at first. But when we saw how we were really treated as VIPs, they immediately changed my mind.
I have to say that staying in a hotel in your own country still feels comfier. We felt home as the Executive Suite imbibe a cozy yet modern look. To make things more grand, being in one of their Executive Suites gives you access to their Premier Lounge located at the 24th floor. There, you can lounge, dine, and experience the amazing 360 degrees’ view of the Manila skyline. Here, you can see the city life while in one ofthe most prestigious places you can ever be. In the Premier Lounge, you can enjoy a continental breakfast buffet, sip some afternoon tea, or even chill in an evening full of cocktails and liqueurs.
These and more while you’re inside an exclusive executive lounge.
As a foodie myself, I really enjoyed their world-class buffet. Every cuisine is served elegantly. If you also love having a taste of different dishes from various parts of the world, you
will definitely enjoy Novotel’s buffet. It’s a colorful combination of colors and cuisines from different cultures. They call it the Food Exchange Manila where you can taste Chinese noodles,
Indian seafood and desserts. It’s glitz and glamor, but all food. Brought to you by talented chefs, the dishes are surely satisfying and picture-worthy. ( More Photoghraphs Below 🙂
More than that, the amenities are also more than decent. The outstanding pool bar and lounge, garden venues, and gelato and pastry shops can be explored by all Novotel guests. Since I’m a fan of pools, all I can say is that their swimming pool is nothing extraordinary but it gives off a modern and elegant vibe which is perfect for your next Instagram shoot. It’s like a modern man and woman’s dream staycation.
For our last and final day in Novotel, we chose to rejuvenate in their wellness and spa.Before we all go back to our routine, we decided to have a relaxing massage first. You can go ahead in their Balance spa where their beauty and wellness experts can pamper you. We thought
of spending our last hours in the hotel there before going back to work again the next day. ( More Photographs Below )
After spending 3 days and 2 nights there, I can say that the Novotel experience is an experience I’ll surely want to feel again. Whenever I’ll feel the need to stay in the North, I’ll surely choose Novotel again and again. Aside from the convenience, the economic price is worth
it for the all the service they can give you.
Novotel is indeed my go-to hotel in the north!
Over 10 it will be 9.5 for me! a big thumbs up!
P.S – .5 is hoping they will also open around South!! wahhhh hahaha
