We welcomed 2017 with a much-needed respite at Shangri La Fort. Here’s a quick tour of our Deluxe King room priced at 10,000++.
Honestly, I expected more given the price tag. I liked the bed and pillows of Discovery Primea more maybe because it felt softer, like I was sinking into the mattress. With Shangri La Fort’s bed, it felt normal, just like our bed at home.
The highlight of the kids’ stay was playing at Adventure Zone! The room included two whole-day passes (priced at P800 each). I appreciate how strict the staff were, even checking the temperatures of everyone going in. There was a separate play area for toddlers with a small slide, blocks and other manipulative objects. The big play area is famous for its 90-degree drop slide, which I was too chicken to try. Bry left Z to play with the other boys as going around the playground was really tiring. There was also a pretend play area but to our dismay, there wasn’t much to play pretend with.
Buffet breakfast in the hotel’s High Street Cafe was included in the room package. It was an extensive array of food, but nothing out of the usual. I’m just sad I wasn’t able to try the Laksa everyone was raving about.
The whole complex had everything – salon, shopping stores, lots of restaurants and the very posh Kerry Sports Manila. Bry and I even got a night out of drinking, because its location was accessible to BGC’s bars!
Will we go back? Maybe for Adventure Zone or if they have really good (cheap!) deals.
