It’s clean and affords you the privacy you need at a budget, this space capsule hotel in Kota Kinabalu is highly recommended. I have to confess. I don’t like staying in hostels. I’m not just comfortable sleeping in a dorm room with complete strangers. That’s why, I always go for a hotel room. But if budget or time is scarce, then I will go for a capsule hotel. Not just any other capsule hotel like the one I first tried in Tokyo, for that matter,…Continue Reading “Space Capsule Hotel in Kota Kinabalu”

I never thought that such a luxury resort in Culion exists! Eclipsed by the more popular town of Coron, Culion has always been under the radar for visitors. Unless you’re a history buff and adventurer. Culion used to be a leper colony starting in 1906 during the American colonial period.

The island today is a sleepy town with occasional…Continue Reading “A luxury resort in Culion you should visit”

A beach staycation at Be Resort Mactan. That was what I badly needed and finally had it! Stylish, well pampered and fully sated. And what’s more, I had all the beach to myself.

I was initially planning of just hopping on a bus and taking a ride down south of Cebu for a needed sea, sand and…Continue Reading “Be Resort Mactan, finally a beach staycation!”

ShopBlue Feast-to-go

An unexpected box from Bluewater Resorts highlighting ShopBlue arrived at home with a surprising content that made me salivate: delicious food. I always love what Bluewater Resorts have on offer. I have experienced all three resorts in Panglao (Bohol) Sumilon (Oslob) and the latest, Maribago (Mactan) with the latter two both in Cebu. One thing that I really look forward beyond the resort accommodation is really the good meals that I had tried with them. From the very delicious ube ensaymada, the adobo rice and…Continue Reading “Wanna try Bluewater Resort’s ShopBlue Feast-to-Go?”

I won’t deny that I had a great staycation at the Bayfront Hotel Cebu. And one thing that made it worth my time was, of course, the good food I had. I am doing intermittent fasting (16:8, if you may ask) but when I was there, I had to pause it and just enjoy the food. Think about it: hearty buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A good ala carte selection that you can have at the hotel’s restaurant, Cafe Breeze, or via room service….Continue Reading “Cafe Breeze at Bayfront Hotel Cebu: must try pochero and other food”
