Surrounded with busy markets, shopping malls and art galleries, Pasay City is one of the busiest cities in Metro Manila. Accessible via major thoroughfares and near airport terminals, this urban jungle is a prime location for transient travelers.
And at its center, we found a cozy and quiet place to rest and relax amidst the busy metro – Selah Garden Hotel Manila.
Residing north, we seldom go to Pasay City, except for the occasional visits to at Ikea Manila or going to the SM Mall of Asia. There was a time we even had to book a hotel along Roxas Boulevard so we won’t be late for a conference at the nearby PICC. Today, we’re glad to discover Selah Garden Hotel – offering a cozy accommodation with a laid-back atmosphere right smack in the middle of the city..
The Lofts at Selah Garden
Selah Garden Hotel is a quick 15-munite walk from a 2 major train station – the LRT Taft-Edsa and the MRT-3 Taft-Edsa stations.
The 4-level hotel offers various types of accommodation catering to couples, families and even big groups or “barkada“.
Upon check-in, we were welcomed by a set of friendly staff and crew who immediately offered to carry our luggage.
We stayed in a 20sq meter loft room located on the 4th floor; good thing there is a convenient elevator.
The room had a minimalist tone with touches of Filipino furniture as you can see from the photos above. It also had a somewhat vintage design like the bedside lamp and dresser with a huge mirror.
As a loft, there is a 2nd level where the second queen-sized bed is located; perfect for a family of four, or even more.
Moreover, we like its spacious bathroom with hot and cold shower and toiletries.
Other room amenities include:
- Smart TV
- Coffee and Tea making facility
- Vanity Table and Sofa
- Airconditioned Room with Ceiling Fan
- Mini Bar with Refrigerator
Outside the room were woven chairs for guests to relax. From the 4th floor, we have a view of the hotel’s swimming pool and activity area. There’s a strong internet connection as well so we were able to finish some work while on staycation.
Team Building Facilities
The Selah Garden Hotel offers more than accommodation and relaxation. Guest who are up for some adventure may try their Team Building facilities:
- Zip line
- Wall climbing
- Control decent
- High ropes course like Net bridge, Burma bridge, Multi vines, Broken bridge and Jacobs’s ladder
Jonel showed us some of the activities you can try such as the wall climbing. Don’t worry if you are new to these activities, a trained personnel will assist you.
If you don’t feel like stretching those muscles, you may book their KTV room, sing and dance to the tune of your favorite songs. The KTV is also open for non-staying guests. Our KTV and dining experience at Selah Garden Hotel deserves a separate blog, so make sure to subscribe to our website.
After a day of full activity, you can relax at the Spa by Selah, which Mrs. Seats For Two tried after our dinner date. For only P350 (US$6.69 ) you can get a relaxing full-body massage. Spa by Selah is located at the second-floor wing C Building offers whole body massage, foot massage, ear candling service and other salon services.
Tabla restaurant offers all-day dining and is located next to the lobby. It features long hard wood tables and drum-like chairs. Their lovely vertical plants and a pond with koi fish provided a calming and relaxing ambiance. In-house guests can have breakfast at Tabla restaurant. At the moment, we had plated breakfast but we were told that breakfast buffets are now available on weekends.
Selah Garden Hotel Manila has 84 well-appointed rooms that can cater to family, small groups of ten. Standard room rate starts at Php1,555 (US$28) while the Deluxe room starts at Php2,391.
