A Staycation at the Oakwood Premier Joy-Nostalg Center Manila
|Our well-appointed bathroom complete with a free-standing tub, steam bath, rainshower, and premium bath amenities|
So, when I feel like I'm having a travel overdose, I try to squeeze in some staycations in between. Staycations give me some sort of a breather from the daily grind without the need to travel far, or without being away from my loved ones.
After our Holy Week escapade in Biliran and our quick getaway in Bauan, Batangas, I felt like it's time to have some quality time with my family, so we spent a night in Oakwood Premier Joy-Nostalg Center Manila on LaborDay weekend. Located at the heart of Ortigas Center in Pasig City, the hotel is just about 20 minutes away from where we live. Perfect!

After settling our stuff at our suite, we went around the serviced residence to check out what activities we can do and what facilities do they have.

The indoor pool is so Pinoy-friendly as it is not directly exposed to the heat of the sun, so there's no need for you to slather on a bottle of sunblock here. Perhaps, just a shot-glass-amount of sunscreen would do. The pool starts at 4 feet. Guests are advised to wear proper swimming attire.

After having a dip at the pool, I went to check out the sauna and the locker room. It's clean and well-maintained, I must say. Even the individual shower rooms were cleaned right after someone uses it.
