One of the best experiences during my staycation in Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila? Spending time at the exclusive Club Millesime Lounge at the 10th floor. Well, for most of my stay there, cocooning at the luxury club rooms, the lounge offered a space for breakfast, afternoon snacks and cocktails during the evenings without the need to go down to the main restaurant.

I didn’t head down to Spiral for the extensive breakfast selection, gorging and stuffing myself in the process or head to Le Bar for coffee but instead, preferred the quite spaces of the exclusive lounge minus the crowds and noise.

Club Millesime lounge is intimate. It’s large enough but has ample spaces for private conversations. Meal selections are varied but never overwhelming but has ala carte selections too. For the business traveler, it has state of the art amenities and equipment.

When I got bored staying at the room all day and wanted a change of scenery without the hassle of heading out into the hotel’s wider spaces,  the Club Millesime lounge was a haven. I did love the comfortable chairs and furniture. I read newspapers while having coffee, checked my email with its fast broadband wifi internet.

And if you need something? Your personal butler or lounge staff can just do anything for you.

    Hi Tita Mari! Very true. Ganun talaga dito, most plceas won’t allow you to take photos of the premises. But if I pretend to be taking a photo of Ren, for example, and backdrop yung same premises, ok lang. Huh? Sa US I never had any such problems. I could take all the reference photos I wanted and I could even set up my easel on the spot and paint for 2 hours without anyone bothering me.

Tell me what you think
