Who it's best for: Those looking for solace in refreshing urban spaces

Why you should check in: Azumi is arguably one of the most impressive boutique hotels in the city. With its minimalist design all throughout, it's immediately calming to all the senses and rejuvenating to both mind and body. As you step out of its thoughtfully designed common areas and into your own private space, you're sure to appreciate the floor-to-ceiling glass windows that let in natural light in the daytime, while providing a spectacular night sky and view of the urban landscape—perfect for a bit of indoor yoga and meditation, catching up on your reading, or simply enjoying a well-deserved nap. When it comes to amenities, the hotel is specifically known for its saltwater infinity lap pool with a panoramic skyline view (the only one of its kind in the metro), and for housing a branch of the legendary Cafe Romulo.

Where it is: 4950 Guerrero Street, Barangay Poblacion, Makati City

Who it's best for: Those who enjoy nights of laidback socializing and discovering a city's hidden gems

Why you should check in: Bonjour, bienvenue! This neat little hotel unknown to many is the vision come to life of Filipino-French owners who believed in bringing a sliver of relaxed European living and dining to cosmopolitan Makati. The hotel nestled in Poblacion attracts many international guests, but that is not to say that locals won't appreciate what it has to offer. Imagine leisurely sipping on your choice of wine or cafe in an al fresco setting and pairing it with bites from the menu of their French-Mediterranean restaurant, Bohem Bistro Boulangerie, only taking a break to say "hello" to friends, both old and new. When it's time to call it a night, you head up for a restful sleep in your room—one that is uniquely designed, as all of Element Boutique Hotel's rooms were furnished differently. Turning your attention to the hotel's surroundings, you'll find that you're actually enveloped in some of Makati's best independently owned restaurants, coffee shops, and bars: feast on the freshest Aklan oysters in Wantusawa, chill with premium yakitori sticks and sake in Kampai, drink and dance like you're in Havana in Pulilya, take in art in open-air gallery The Ruins, appreciate the city skyline in The Apartment, or listen to live music and enjoy French delicacies at Le Cafe Curieux—the list goes on and on. Now that is living!

Where it is: 14 Scout Rallos Street, Barangay Laging Handa, South Triangle, Quezon City

Who it's best for: Those who equate going on holiday with endless food trips

Why you should check in: A property under the Bellevue brand, the relatively new B Hotel has amassed a following, thanks to its unique vintage and industrial design that makes you feel like you're living out your favorite steampunk movie or novel. It's a destination in itself, and it definitely helps that it has an outdoor roof deck pool that provides an impressive view of Quezon City. And when you get hungry, worry not; the hotel has three dining outlets to satiate even the pickest of palates. There's the Mezzanine Bar for those with a taste for bar chow and fine cocktails, the Lobby Cafe that has the answer to cravings both sweet and savory, and the Pastry Corner that's home to quick takeaways and their signature ensaymada. The food trip doesn't end there, though; B Hotel is right along Scout Rallos Street that every Quezon City local will tell you has some of the best restaurants in the area. Visit Eighteen Bistro, H Cuisine, Victorino's Restaurant, and The Frazzled Cook among many, many other joints then when your food coma takes over, remember that B Hotel is right around the corner.

Amelie Hotel Manila






Where it is:  1667 Jorge Bocobo St., Malate, Manila

Who it's best for: Those who need to get their cultural and creative fixes

Why you should check in: If you like to write, take your laptop (or a favorite pen and pad) with you. If you're an artist, pack a travel-friendly easel and set of paints, or your craft's necessary tools because you're going to need them—the Amelie Hotel was built to get the hearts of bohemians beating. Its art deco-inspired interiors are dotted with eclectic artworks and novel finds, all of which stimulate the creative energies within you that lay dormant during the hustle and bustle of everyday living. Complementing its indoor sights is the hotel's location; because the hotel sits in the historical heart of Manila, a booking here brings you closer to the city's cultural hotspots like Intramuros and Fort Santiago, the National Museum, The Museum of Contemporary Art and Design, The Metropolitan Museum, Escolta, Manila's Chinatown (the oldest Chinatown in the world), as well as the Binondo and Quiapo Churches. Beautiful as they are any time of the year, we're sure these places will appear and feel even more special, thanks to the holiday cloaking your visit. And for that, be ready with your camera, too!

Where it is: 2 San Lorenzo Drive corner Arnaiz Avenue, San Lorenzo Village, Makati City

Who it's best for: Those who want to stay close to comforts of city living over the holiday

Why you should check in: Be assured that when you book at Hotel Celeste, the first boutique hotel in the area, you'll have the city at your fingertips. All the delights offered by luxe shopping centers will literally be across the street, while the best in fine dining provided by Makati's most hip and happening restaurants and bars will also be a stone's throw away. If your ideal holiday is defined by indulging in movies, shopping, and dining to your heart's content, this hotel is for you. But when the day is done and it's time put up your feet and unwind, Hotel Celeste's rooms will be nothing short of comforting and equally magnificent. Playing on the styles of opulent European homes and spaces of times gone by, you'll feel like royalty who's getting nothing but the best of the best.
