Valentine's Getaway in Manila

Pin It

Me and my BF went to Manila for our Valentine weekend trip through the Cebu Pacific pisofare promo. I bought our roundtrip plane tickets last August 2011 for a total of PhP1548 only.  Our Cebu Pacific flights going to Manila and coming back to Iloilo were delayed (as usual) though.

To save on this trip, I frequently looked for promos from deal sites like CashCashPinoy and Ensogo. I was able to get a deal from CashCashPinoy for our hotel room at Gran Prix Hotel worth PhP1500/night. Then I also booked an Aqua Room at Hotel H20 via Ensogo for PhP5,850 including a set breakfast for 2 at Makan Makan Asian Food Village and Zenyu Eco Spa treatment for 2. 

Spend our first day at SM Mall of Asia
 We coincidentally saw his HS friends
 Had breakfast with my friend Michelle and his BF Clarence at Global City
 Back at MOA before going to Ocean Park. I love the Dark Chocolate with Almonds from Cacao.
 Aqua Room at Hotel H2O

The foods are expensive but totally worth the price!

I honestly did not enjoy the Ocean Park attractions that much. The entrance fees are expensive but the attractions are not that fun. The penguin arctic tour-something was the most boring. You just enter an icy room, watch some penguins swim, and ride in a not-so-thrilling slide. The Marine Life Show with the sea lions were a bit entertaining though. 

The Hotel H2O experience, on the other hand, was amazing. We were awed with the room's interior design and features. It was very modern and sophisticated for ordinary people like The food at Makan Makan Asian Food Village were fantastic that we just set aside our diet plans that day and enjoyed the delectable foods on their menu. The hotbed treatment that was included on our Ensogo deal was, well, really HOT but very stress-relieving. According to the people from Zenyu Eco Spa, the hotbed treatment room was made of materials that emit negative ions helpful in promoting good health. After the hotbed, SWEATY treatment, we just added PhP600 each for a full body massage to have a very relaxing sleep on the last night of our trip. :)
