May is a month of celebration for us: it’s our daughter’s birthday month, our wedding anniversary month, and a special month for moms! This is why come May, we plan for a trip or a staycation to celebrate all these beautiful events in our family’s life.
This year, since my husband is on training and can only spend weekends with us, we decided to go on a staycation at KL Tower Serviced Residences. KL Tower Makati is located conveniently in Legaspi Village and just walking distance from malls and parks.
But once you’re inside, I don’t think you’ll want to go out for a stroll anymore. The rooms are so spacious and comfy: complete with a kitchen where you can cook your meals, a dining area, a living room with a television set with cable, and a bedroom with the most inviting atmosphere. I tell you, once I found my spot in the bedroom, I didn’t want to leave!
Each unit is equipped with high speed internet, which is a huge plus for entrepreneurs like myself who rely on internet to keep the business moving. The bigger rooms, such as the One Bedroom Premier where we stayed, have their own study room where guests can work while the rest of the family go about their business in the main area of the unit.
As I previously mentioned, the units are equipped with a fully functional kitchen complete with pots, pans, plates, and utensils. That said, you are allowed to bring food that you can cook during your stay. Although the hotel provides complimentary bottles of water, those won’t last you a day so bring your own big bottle of water as well. For guests who book directly with the hotel, there is complimentary breakfast for your stay, which you will have at Kitchen 1B at the Ground Floor.
If you want to stretch your muscles and have some good ol’ summer fun, head over to the 7th floor for a swim in their indoor pool. KL Tower Makati only has one pool, but it has different levels for guests. Our minis stayed in one enclosed corner where the water level is just right for their height while the bigger kids and adults enjoyed the rest of the pool.
Right beside the pool is a simple Children’s Play Area where kids can test their balance on the swirly foam play mats or see if they can cross the monkey bars. Although this area is simple, our kids really enjoyed it as they pretended to be in a jungle filled with obstacles. They spent a good full hour playing here after taking a dip at the pool.
I wasn’t able to try the other amenities, but guests of KL Tower Makati also have access to the gym and sauna.
There are many unit options offered by KL Tower Serviced Residences that will fit any guest’s needs during his/her stay.
For solo travelers, you may opt for the Studio Deluxe or Studio Premiere, which can host one to two guests. If you are staying as a family, however, I suggest that you opt for the One Bedroom or Two Bedroom options so there will be lots of space for everyone. You may request for extra beds, if needed.
It is no doubt why the hotel has a lot of good reviews online–KL Tower Serviced Residences is a hotel to beat! With top notch services for a hassle-free and luxurious stay combined with their homey and fully furnished units and convenient location, this is definitely the perfect place for a quick staycation or a long relaxing break.
We especially love that the hotel made us feel like we are really home. With a fully equipped unit, it wasn’t far from home! We got to cook our own food, hang out in the living room while watching Disney movies with the kids, and relax in the bedroom come night time.
Although widely known as a business hotel, KL Tower Makati can still be a destination for families who are seeking to get away from their usual schedule yet stay within reach.
