It is already our tradition to have a staycation everytime we celebrate our wedding anniversary. This 30th of October was something really special because we celebrated our 15 years of being together inspite of the challenges that we have faced as a couple. This is also memorable because for me, this is just the beginning and more surprises are still in store for us 🙂 Details will be posted soon (winks).
One characteristic that I have is being impulsive– one day I just realized that I wanted to do something and out of the blue, I was already in the process of making it a reality. A part of the plan is also to make our wedding anniversary celebration something special– since we already have tried to spend our summer vacay at Discovery Shores last April, I just thought of giving Discovery Suites Manila a try.
I have booked directly from their website and coordinated with the staff regarding my plans via email. They were attentive with regards to details and I was flattered because they have extended their assistance to me and all my requests have been granted. (Special thanks to Engr. Allan Suarez, the Property Manager; Ms. Joyce Nadres, Front Office Manager; and Mr. Albert Fernandez, the F&B Manager). This really means a lot to me.
After attending a half-day seminar in school, we headed home to get our stuff and at 3pm we were already in the property. The check-in process was hassle-free and the staff were very professional.
When we entered our two-bedroom suite on the 10th floor, we were greeted by these surprises. Discovery Suites is already known for giving extra care to their guests by treating them like VIPs. We had a banner hanging above the windows that says: “Happy 15th Wedding Anniversary!” and a free anniversary cake for us.
After enjoying the surprises inside our suite, we brought the kids to the swimming pool for their afternoon swim. Since we have the pool to ourselves, we decided to swim also.
I opted to just have our dinner served in our suite. The table was set up by 6:30am and foods were delivered at 7:30pm.
Overall, I could say that this celebration is the best though it’s the most expensive we had so far. Anyway, it’s all worth it because we brought our two kids with us and they have totall enjoyed their stay in the hotel.
Note: There will be a separate post about my review about their two-bedroom suite and their restaurants 22Prime and Restaurant 5. Til next post, my dear readers 🙂
