Yup, you read that right. There’s a chapel in the hotel. The Chapel of the Annunciation is solemn and serene with marble and wood design Β It was designed by the same architect who made the Church of the Gesu in the Ateneo campus. This was my first time to see a chapel inside a hotel.

Masses are held here for the guests and staff.

Discovery Primea’s 37 Degrees Gym houses state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. No excuse to slack off in exercise even during a business stay or vacation!

The pool was very inviting and I think Y wanted to take a dip! Complete with lounge chairs and a pool bar, the 20-meter heated infinity pool is not to be missed!

Relax and enjoy the Makati skyline.

What’s a day with the girls without shopping?! Luckily for us, the hotel has an in-house lifestyle shop, Lily, which sells locally-crafted goods like bags, shoes, dresses and home decor! They also offer gift-wrapping services.

After the tour comes the pampering! Terazi Spa is the only spa in the metro that offers hammam, a traditional Turkish ritual, where you’ll lie in a stone table and stay in the room that has temperature going up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit! Half of the group opted to have a full body massage or a facial, which they said was very relaxing! Actually, just being in the spa was relaxing enough for me since it smelled of lemongrass and eucalyptus! I can’t wait to go back and use the gift certificate they gave us!

As for me, I chose to have my pampering at Toni & Guy. My hair was badly needing some attention and this invitation came at the right time! Sab, Helene, Mish and myself had our scalp and hair scanned by a Kerastase device, in order to know which hair concern should be addressed. I found out that my scalp is oily but my hair is dry! Kinda weird isn’t it?! But you have to remember that the scalp and hair are two different parts! So, the treatment they gave me was suited for my scalp and hair’s problems. And then, I got my hair cut and framed my face with bangs! I felt like a new person!

You can also go here even if you’re not a hotel guest.

My fringe! I wish I could have curls like that for everyday!

To this day, my hair still feels healthy! And the fringe helps in concealing my forehead, hehe!

  1. Discovery Primea is on my bucket list so thank you for touring me because I don’t have a budget yet. πŸ™‚ Nice to know that they have heated pool.

  2. You look fab with your new haircut! πŸ™‚ I’m glad to hear that you had a great time at Discovery Primea. πŸ˜€ I love their chapel and the Spa. Terazi Spa got me curious. Hmm… πŸ™‚

  3. Your hairdo looks fab sis! I have heard of this hotel before but we have not yet tried it. In Makati area my boys prefers Holiday Inn as it has direct access to the mall. Your post though made we want to try it. Would you know if they hold regular masses in their chapel?

  4. I don’t frequently go to Makati nowadays but when I do, I usually go to Glorietta. Funny how I never realized that the building being constructed along Ayala was Discovery Primea. Looks like a nice place to book for a staycation someday. πŸ™‚ Love the items in their gift shop.

  5. Would love to spend a weekend here with my husband. The most intriguing part of your article was when mentioned about Lily. I am such a fan of locally-crafted good. I have been hearing and reading a lot of good feedback about this hotel and I can’t wait to try it out.

  6. Wow, such a sexy hair cut, Chessy! πŸ™‚ Looks like there’s so many things to explore at Discovery Primea. I, for one, would love to be pampered at the spa. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Janice! Sadly, straight hair na ulit ngayon haha! Deserve mo to get pampered in the spa! Book a room para no need to rush for the baby!

  7. Ooh, I love that new hairstyle! I was surprised also to read that there’s a chapel inside. It is such a rare surprise. It also seems that everything’s there already. You need not go out to enjoy things.

  8. Woah, this sounds more like a condominium complex than a hotel. They really thought about everything their guest could possibly need! I especially love the shopping and pampering options.

  9. Thank you for sharing this wonderful experience. Would want to try it as well but I guess I need that budget first. Nonetheless, it’s helpful that you were able to ” tour” us around. This is truly one gift to self that is worth all.
