Red Planet Hotel – Amorsolo, Makati City

Where To Stay In Makati

I was on the first stage of REM when my eyes gazed the blurry image of my buddy. His garbled voice echoed as I was trying to figure out what he was telling me. After a while, it seemed that he gave up. I continued my slumber and woke up the next day feeling rejuvenated. Blame it on the comfy bed of Red Planet Hotel in Amorsolo, Makati.

It was Friday, the heaviest road traffic day of the week in Metro Manila. We traveled from Quezon City to Makati City for two and a half hours. Crazy ain’t it? Our Makati Food Tour and staycation commenced as we stepped inside our home for three days.

The funky lobby greeted us as we processed our booking reservations. Red and black hues dominated the whole space. There’s a lounge area, business center, deli cafĂ©, and recreation wall where some board games and books were available for guests. The group flocked at the photo booth where we happily posed. The photos taken were sent on our email addresses, cool right?

After the front desk officer processed our booking, we headed to the eighth floor and checked out different rooms (check rates). The others were booked on a Double room that was connected to a Twin room. I was assigned on a Double room that had all the essentials for our weekend staycation.

The toilet and bath had basic amenities; wash basin, lavatory with bidet and hot and cold rain shower. Only bath towels and soaps were provided though. The complimentary high-speed WiFi internet connection was also very reliable.

We started our food crawl in Makati that same afternoon and concluded at around ten in the evening. The group had planned a night out somewhere so we went back at Red Planet Hotel and freshened up. I planned to snooze for a while as they prepare, but as I slumped into the huge bed, I went into dreamland straight off.

I struggled with recognizing what my buddy was trying to say. After a moment or two, I guess, he realized that my lifeless body won’t make it anywhere but my bed. So there goes my Friday night; I surrendered to the cry of my bed while my friends were partying somewhere till five in the morning, very granny-like. No regrets though, my uninterrupted sleep lasted for hours which gave me the energy to accomplish our task for the next day; the continuation of our wild food hunt in Makati.

Next time I'll just stay in bed, all day.
On our very last day, I heard a tune that kept on bugging me. Half-awake, I realized that it was the room alarm. Looking at the peephole, I spotted my friend who reminded me of the check-out time. The heavy draperies provided the ideal sleeping environment which lasted till twelve noon.

No frills, no drama; the perfect way to describe our weekend staycation at Red Planet Hotel in Amorsolo, Makati.
