A Summer to Remember at F1 Hotel Manila, The Home of Happy Experiences

10:13:00 AM 0 Comments
Back when I was still single, every summer season excites me with planning out of town trips with friends and family to bask under the sun, dive into a pool and soak away.

Now with my own little family composed of me, my husband & a toddler in tow who I fondly call The Lil Dumpling (TLD), going out of town is not as easy as it was before. I worry about the trip itself on how long it takes to get to the place instead of relaxing during the trip. Another thing that bugs me is the food to eat because my toddler might not like the food since it's not her usual food. There are so many things to consider before going on a trip.

With so many worries in my mind, I've finally tried what people call a "staycation" at BGC's home of happy experiences, F1 Hotel Manila.

We checked in through their Premiere Lounge which is located at the 5th floor.
Earth tones couch spaces where you can have a chit chat with friends.

Here's a bit bigger couch space which one can hold an emergency meeting in case something comes up.

Look at the collection of books and magazines you can read while relaxing.
Yummy cakes to snack on while waiting for check-in.

There's cookies too which is really good with coffee or tea.

Since it's a hot summer day, these juices & ice water can cool you down.
Upon entering our big beautiful room, TLD ran around and jumped on the bed! Lying down on a "starfish pose" she said, "I love this comfy comfy bed!" I right away knew that we were in the right place! 
Here is TLD jumping up and down the bed while holding this pillow.
I have to carry her down the bed and fixed the bed again for the hubby and I to be able to get nice photos of our City Suite.

Our King Size Bed

Apologies for the wrinkled sheets but this is the best we can do. The bed is as comfy as it looks! :)

Here is the living area and working table.

That cheese platter is part of our welcome amenities. It's super yummy!

The toilet amenities

This is what's in the cabinet. :D

Since we checked in at 1pm, we didn't have lunch yet and before going to our room TLD was complaining that she was hungry. However, when we got in and she loved the bed, she started fake sleeping to convince us not to go out of our beautiful City Suite.

I just have to force her to go out with me as we had our lunch at F All Day Dining Restaurant where they had a Filipino-Mexican Spread which is offered every weekend (Friday to Sunday) during lunch & dinner buffet at PhP1,699 per person.

It's cheesy with a bit of spice and rich binakol flavor.

Chipotle Chicken

Shrimp Halabos

Squid Relleno con Salsa Verde
This is surprisingly my favorite from the spread. The squid was so tender & flavorful and the salsa verde just makes it more appetising that you'll be wanting to have more!
Aside from the Filipino-Mexican food, F All Day Dining Restaurant still carried some International fares that are buffet essentials.
The bread basket
There are more breads but this is my favorite.


The cheeses with nuts, dried fruits, breadsticks and grapes.
The grapes are actually very very sweet!

Mixed tempura composed of fish, mussels, shrimp and squid.

Overloaded Potatoes and Pasta

The grill station

My choices: Shrimps and Salmon!

Sweet Potato Mash with Torched Marshmallows on top.
This dessert might look weird and deceiving but it's super yummy!

Buco Pie
This classic Filipino dessert has been given an upgrade by F All Day Dining Restaurant but its taste is still very classically Filipino!
Just a few minutes before sunset, we were able to enjoy the beautiful swimming pool. The size was just right and the water was quite clean.
This is just one of the 3 beautiful pools to swim in.
Wasn't able to take photos of the other pools since there were people swimming who might not want their photos taken. :)
After swimming, we saw that the Canary Lounge was transformed into a glamorous city camping set up. There was a grass-like mat on the floor with small tables & big pillows where kids can sit, watch the performer sings acoustic and the adults can feast on unlimited grilled dishes. 

To give a feeling of outdoor, night-out camping, F1 offers Make S'mores Memories which is their chocolate and mallows in a skillet with cracker alongside as if you're in a campfire underneath the stars and continuously listen to the serenade until 12midnight.

With majority of the schools in Metro Manila having their summer break, F1 Hotel Manila offers their Summer Weekend Room Package for only PhP4,600 per night in a Deluxe Room and a stay in the City Suite is at PhP5,100 per night. 
Look at that view from our room!
TLD was quite sad when it was time to leave. Since F1 Hotel Manila is in the middle of BGC, it was very convenient to walk to Bonifacio High Street and our family loved it!
From May 9 - 16, 2018, F1 Hotel Manila has a special Mother's Day Room Package worth PhP6,300 per night to spoil moms with a signature living experience which includes overnight accommodation in the City Suite with buffet breakfast for 2, one-hour in room massage for mom and PhP500 buffet credit voucher in F All Day Dining Restaurant.

My breakfast plate
Don't you just love how colorful and yet so delicious breakfast can be?
For those who would like to treat their moms for lunch or dinner for Mother's Day, here's a good news for you! For the whole month of May, MOMS DINE FREE when accompanied by at least 2 paying guests (PhP1,499 per person) at F All Day Dining Restaurant for lunch or dinner buffet.

What are you waiting for? Don't just sit there.
