From its marvelous ceilings, spectacular wall designs, splendid embellishments, and eminent furniture, to excellent hotel service, delectable international cuisines, and lavish amenities, it will absolutely be a one-of-a-kind, luxurious hotel experience!

Indeed, a superior luxury that exceed standard 5-star expectations! The moment I stepped inside the doors of this lavish hotel, sumptuousness conquered my senses! I felt as if I was a princess.

Rooms

With the hotel’s 408 rooms, I believe 1 is meant for you. Well, luxury is not just found in the exteriors of the hotel. It also gave justice to their rooms and suites, as the same elegance and sophistication is certainly established inside. The acme here is how their extravagance doesn’t affect the comfort and leisure we personally need from the hotel. Oozing with coziness and classiness, every room is specially equipped with the famous My Bed™ concept, a Sofitel exclusive, plasma screens, a Bose sound system, an espresso machine, and a L’Occitane or Hermès bathroom amenities. Jacuzzis are also available inside the Prestige Suites.

Our Room

The ambiance of the room is so comforting that you just want to stay inside and savor every moment with your room. (It was love at first sight, I swear.) Coziness and pure relaxation welcomed us as every corner is just perfectly meant for our own personal staycation! The bed’s tender mattress is so soft that it let us sink right into it! The couch’s convivial trait is just gladdening and is perfectly placed beside the elegant window, where a breathtaking view saluted us! Moreover, its impressing bathroom made up of marble and granite amazed us, as it isn’t just huge, but is astounding, where large overheard showers and a sophisticated bathtub harmonized by the mini television are placed perfectly just in front of it, which makes us more excited for our me time! There’s nothing like being chill and lazy in your own little slice of paradise.

Restaurants and Bars

World class Cuisines are also offered by this prestige hotel! What’s more is that you have a variety of choices of restaurants and bars you can choose from to fit your standard. As for us, The Mistral Restaurant was meant for us.

Mistral Restaurant

Offering a wide array of international food, this buffet restaurant will definitely have your tummy happy. Our jaw literally dropped as we saw the vast selection of various cuisines that is so appetizing to look at. Not only do they look scrumptious, but they also taste scrumptious! Every moment was so glorious that we can’t contain ourselves as we indulge the food we were eating. Moreover, the ambiance of the place perfect complements our experience. Luxury was still given justice to this place. I’m giving this restaurant a 5 star!

So Spa

It was just the perfect time for me to try their So Spa! My stay here in Sofitel wouldn’t be complete without experiencing their 5-class Spa Services. And believe me when I say that my 60 minute experience in So Spa was the best of all my Spa Experiences I had to date. It was so soothing beyond words. Every touch was a touch of tranquility and luxury. It was pure wonderful.
