CRIMSON HOTEL – A Relaxing Staycation Hotel in Alabang!
Alabang is a bustling growing city in the South of Manila. Aside from the number of shopping malls and other skyscrapers now being built, hotels are also growing in numbers.
And one of the activity we are enjoying at the moment is doing a staycation. This is how we sometimes treat ourselves after a hectic and busy week. With all the searching going on, we decided to go and stay at CRIMSON HOTEL in Alabang for a night.
We arrived at the reception at 2:00 pm just in time for their check-in. The lobby was huge and grand. I like the geometric lines of their ceiling too!
Aside from their comfortable room, it was also very spacious and clean. The beds and linen were also very soft and fluffy which I like. Everything you need can be found in the room.
After a few minute rest in the hotel room, it was time for me to explore the hotel. Next to the reception, you can treat yourself to some dessert samplers, cakes, coffees, teas and wine at Lobby Lounge. If you are thinking of Tea Time? This is the place to be!
I was also able to try their pool area. Their pool was not as big as the others, but the length was perfect if you want to do lap swimming. The wind was also blowing very strong sometimes that it they made swimmers retreat from the swimming pool. They have two swimming pools for both adults and kids to enjoy! For those who are not swimmers, they also have a fitness gym just next to the pool area.
That evening, we didn’t want to go anywhere else. Instead we treated ourselves to a buffet at the hotel’s Cafe 8. This is the hotel’s main restaurant that offers international cuisine from different regions of the world.
Before we start our dinner buffet, we started with a cocktail. My friend ordered his own margarita and I always ordered my favorite Long Island Tea.
After our cocktails, we immediately grabbed a plate and started enjoying our dinner. I like the variety of food that they have in Cafe 8. This restaurant is also considered as one of the top restaurants in Metro Manila.
Although the variety was not as much as compared to other buffet places, the selection of food was enough and all of them were tasty. The selection of their desserts were also good! Though I am on Low Carb – Hight Fat Diet, I guess I will find an excuse to emjoy the fare!
After a good night sleep, we went back again to Cafe 8 for breafkast which was already included. The place was busy and I am not surprise as to why. The breakfast buffet was superb here! From cold cuts, to international and local dishes, bread and pastries, and many more. I just kept coming back to get more food! Aside from hotel guests, I see other people or families who come in here just to have breakfast.
If you think of elegance and great atmosphere, Crimson Hotel has it all! A hotel not just suited for businessmen, but also a great place to enjoy with the whole family and friends all within walking distance of Alabang’s main malls and business areas. The staff were also very friendly and accommodation too which adds up to the flare of the hotel. Even just for a night, I can say that we really enjoyed our stay at Crimson Hotel!
