Sometimes weekends are just meant to be spent in a home away from home. After multiple visits, I’ve decided to share my experience staycationing in Nobu Hotel in City of Dreams Manila.
The best way to tell whether or not you would want to stay in places is reading guest/s experience/s. On this case, I will summarize the multiple occasions I’ve stayed in Nobu and will show the pros and cons of checking in as a guest.
Pros: Valet parking and baggage assist are always quick.
Cons: They don’t really care about your belongings. Multiple times I’ve encountered an employee carrying my bag without caution. I had advised that it’s fragile to no avail.
I suggest that if you are carrying gadgets and have placed them “safely” in your travel bag, carry your belongings and bring it to the baggage scanners yourself. Keep an eye on your things after that because a random employee will just take it and put it on some trolley without your permission. I had to look for employees who took my bags just to get a piece of paper that tell me how many bags they took.
Pros: Check-in should be quick if you’ve reserved early and have requested for whatever is needed.
Cons: One receptionist, [Lila –something] who is very unwelcoming to everyone. Rude is definitely the word.
Pros: Simple, elegant design. The rooms are always very clean (thank you housekeeping). TVs are huge. Coffee is good. Pool view features sunset, city view features sunrise. Executive rooms are spacey and great for staycations. Suites are awesome for a few more people. I don’t believe I’ve ever liked bath products as much as I did Nobu’s.
Cons: Some rooms have no bidet, not even handheld bidet. Noticed this in some rooms. WHYYYY?
You think it’s just typical people watching, but it’s so amusing. Wait ’til the 43 sec. mark.
“Online shopping,” two words I never thought I would enjoy #thedemise. Once Lazada kept showing up on facebook, I started to live in some alternate universe where money no longer lived in my wallet.
Look at this:
It’s so user friendly, you’d mistake it like a flirtatious bastard (ekskyusme).
My first shopping in Lazada got me an FC computer, a wall canvas, wall stickers, two VRs with bluetooth headsets and controllers, a brush that straightens hair, a jacket, etc. I kid you not, I have 56 items on my wishlist, including a chair worth at least Php30,000.
Let me help you understand. They even have clocks you see, clocks that only existed in my dreams.
They have almost everything I didn’t think about finding and I know I’ll never need.
But it’s awesome; nice to browse at something unnecessary that I will probably own with a few taps on my phone. If this makes sense, thank you. If it doesn’t, you’re welcome.
Here I write the very first official entry of my new blog, Weekends Forever. I rummage through my mind and try to find different things I’m interested in. Perhaps it’s not just the new shiny things that are enticing. Conceivably, my interests could also be interests of other people.
This blog will come out with one element at a time, depending on weekend opportunities. It would most likely grow in time, giving birth to divisions in which I hope to be able to update every weekend as it is the only time where things you want to do can actually be done. Below is the list of places you can find me. Mostly active in instagram, the world of vision and wondrous colors, and twitter, the world of wisdom and impeccable vocabulary.
