Paint The Town Red with Our Valentine's Day Hotel Guide

  • February 13, 2019

Love may be expressed through a gentle hand squeeze on a rough day, a home-cooked breakfast for two, a cup of coffee when pulling an all-nighter, a “put your seatbelt on” reminder, and other countless simple acts of kindness to let your person know you value them. On Valentine’s Day, allow yourself to celebrate love in all its grandness—saccharine, spirits, and scents! Treat your favorite person to the best things life can offer. Allow us to recommend five of the best designed second homes that could treat you and your special someone with the best accommodations and dining options this coming day of the hearts.

 

1. The Peninsula Manila, Makati City

Even though it is accessible through one of Manila’s busiest artery, there’s something about the enchanting grandeur of The Peninsula Manila that makes it still a top choice even after more than 40 years. To celebrate romance this month, the hotel offers Romantic Rendezvous packages that include overnight stay, a lovely bottle of wine along with a customized Valentine’s welcome amenity, and complimentary breakfast buffet for two adults and two children under six years of age, from the 11th to the 28th of February. Enjoy a Php3000 dining credit in Spices, Escolta, the Pool Snack Bar or Old Manila, except for February 14-17. For a heightened romantic experience on Valentine’s Day, MyHome recommends dining in The Lobby under the iconic Starburst sculpture by Philippine National Artist Napoleon Abueva.

2. Shangri-La at the Fort, Taguig City

If you’re looking to celebrate love surrounded by modern luxury and glamour, Shangri-La at the Fort in Taguig City is probably your best bet. Located at the heart of the central business district, the pulsating nightlife and interesting subculture of Bonifacio Global City are also yours to take. On Valentine’s Day, experience a romantic treat on room accommodations inclusive of buffet breakfast for two at High Street Café, indulgent welcome amenities, and miniature bottles of Manila-raised gin Bee’s Knees. For a completely memorable date, go for an exotic Peruvian fare. MyHome recommends a lavish dinner at Samba with a four-course dinner priced at Php3200.
