MUMSWANDER: Experience an Extra-Ordinary Staycation at Shangri-la At The Fort

7:30 AM

Do you know that to save money doesn't always necessarily mean vacations will be gone? Our family celebrated my birthday at the newest luxury hotel in town but I felt like gaining more from the experience rather than feeling short from what we spent. Here's why I think value for money wins in unwinding. 

Our family always look forward to a staycation - a home away from home. Staycations are always worth it as you can get to relax, rest and bond with your family without having to leave the city. That means, we cut other expenses associated in having a grand vacation elsewhere. We prepare everything before we check in especially if you have kids with you. Snacks are always present in our bags (as we don't want to spend a lot buying from the hotel haha!).

Here's a little overview of my experience.

Shangri-La at the Fort, Manila, is a cool place in the heart of Bonifacio Global City (BGC). It is where business and entertainment meet. Shopping establishments and restaurants are just within the area.


As we stepped in the hotel, there was something magical and unique about it. Checking-in was so easy and fast. Front desk personnel was very courteous and friendly. We were given two(2) room key cards and wifi access instruction - complimentary high-speed internet access for multiple devices. In less than 15 minutes, we were all heading to the elevator going to our room! The kids were so excited! Tantananan!


There it is - our lovely room -- so cozy and spacious! We stayed at Deluxe High Street View Room - a contemporary space in silver and dove grey with muted beige color palettes.

I love the marble bathroom which features a separate shower cubicle, deluxe tub and plush.


Other facilities and amenities that we visited were the well designed fitness center, basketball court, tennis court, adventure zone for kids, steam bath and sauna room.

Having young kids and teenagers in a group will be a challenge on how each one will enjoy the experience. And Shangri-La at The Fort amenities made ours easy by having those facilities available that will cater each age groups recreation. As a result, kids and mums are all enjoying and relaxing.

We capped off our 2-night stay by spending the last hours at the pool. We had a quick swim as we needed to pack our things to beat our late check out time at 3pm (they were so kind to grant this request at no extra charge!).


Shangri-La at the Fort certainly has a luxurious and grand ambiance. Our 5-star hotel accommodation experience is worth every cent that we paid for it.

Staycations are truly worth it if you know how to do it. Our Shangri-La at the Fort experience helped us unwind without the stress of long haul vacations and the best part is that we had quality family bonding time. I can truly say that we had the best time in our staycation here. I hope to stay in this hotel again in 2018!
