February has always been a dear month to us. Sadly, it had come by too fast. But, no matter how barely we’ve noticed it, we had to make sure it left us a mark. It was our eldest daughter’s birth month, aside from being it our anniversary month, too, when we were still boyfriend and girlfriend.
It fell at the weekend of 2018 CNY. It was very timely for our celebration. We, usually, opted for a staycation in occasion like this. Not only that the kids can enjoy their swimming but also, my husband and I can have a break from the house and from the office.
Alabang is a frequent choice. But where at?
And, so, we ended up at Somerset in Alabang.
The reception looked very cozy. I liked the design, as if I was inside the library, with matching stairs for the hard to reach areas. As if it’s real.
I liked the hotel’s minimalist look. And those lightings, they were quite unique.
The Studio Premier room had King-size bed. What’s good about it was it’s a little bigger and had couch. I preferred this, in case we wouldn’t want to share the bed to one of us. You know who’d be that lucky one. In cases like this, Husband is more considerate. He will not have a choice but to stand the cold at the couch. ‘Cause I don’t usually bring blankets when we stay out :). But, on our 2-night stay, it was good, we’re able to fit on the bed. Husband needed not to worry about sleeping at the couch.
It’s a residential type hotel. Aside from the usual hotel appliances, there were also kitchen stove, bread toaster, microwave oven and automatic washing machine including soap.
We’ve got a tub in the room but no specific shower area. My usual concern if this is the design, is I am 100% sure that the room would be soaking wet anytime the kids will be taking a bath. Oh, please include my husband in that contribution. I got stressed easily if that’s the case. ‘Cause I have to keep the floor dry, making sure that nobody’s going to slide anytime soon.
I always try to use the hotel complimentary toiletries. They usually have a nice scent so I loved to use them.
It was a great 2-day staycation to temporarily set aside any stressful thoughts. It was more of eat, swim and sleep. The kids had fun, too. It was all worth it.
What a beautiful scene to end the day!
