A Quick and yet Sweet Staycation at Best Western Plus Hotel in Subic

Gee… when life gives you a hard time, well, I suggest, taking a pause and booking a room in a hotel for a quick and yet sweet escape from the bustle and hustle of the metropolitan. I bet, you’ll be having a great time and would surely have the much needed break away from the chaos. And that’s exactly I did last week, when work life seems to be at its busiest and challenges were keep coming, my brain was not already functioning due to migraine, I know precisely what I needed to do – a quick getaway!

It was an answered prayer, yeah even stay-cations and hotel accommodations are part of it, my main reason is to have time to relax and keeps me motivated, to reflect and be thankful for all the blessing He showers on me. I couldn’t contain my excitement when I got an invitation the night before the said getaway, He gave me a great place to enjoy an overnight stay and more than what I prayed and wished for. Thank you, Papa God!

It was already around 3 in the morning when I fall asleep because I took the opportunity to spend a night in the hotel’s infinity swimming pool in the roof top having a great view while enjoying some beers and a glass of red wine. It was absolutely the break I’ve been dreaming for and I was glad that I was one of the few who were able to experience the hotel’s amenities firsthand.

It was an unexpected stay-cation, thus, checking-in with an incomplete stuff was expected but not the norm for me whenever I travel. Good thing, hygienic toiletries such as toothbrush & toothpaste, shampoo & conditioner, body soap, and cotton buds were available on my spacious bathroom with a stunning floor tile details. Girls, hair dryer and mirror when doing your make-up are also present. Plus, there’s a bidet! Hooray! (",)

Planned to have an early morning walk, but the room’s cold temperature made me stay in bed ‘til 8 o'clock in the morning, just in time for breakfast at Spencer Restaurant. It was a delightful meal! They offer American and Filipino Style breakfast. Of course, I had my bacon (the one that I’m always looks forward in every breakfast that I’ll be having while in a hotel stay-cation).

After breakfast, we headed to Ocean Adventure! Best Western Plus Hotel also partnered with different Subic attractions and one of them is the Ocean Adventure. It was my first time that’s why, I was thrilled and enthralled of how it’ll turn my day to an awesome one and it deserves to have a separate post, so stay tuned, please!

Meanwhile, my stay-cation was unplanned and it turns out wonderful. Thank you Best Western Plus Hotel, Gab and Sirikit for making this sweet escape a hassle-free and giving me a quick and yet perfect escape from the busy life in the metro. You’re the best! It feels like home and I’m already missing my comfortable bed, soft pillows and warm white sheets. Until next time, Best Western Plus Hotel!
