Since the Henry Hotel is part of a compound of homes and occupies only 6 out of the 15 houses there, there are still other residents and other houses there
All the houses in the compound look the same but the ones renting may have changed or refurbished them a bit so they all have their own unique character
We went to visit the new hotel of Hanky and Christine Lee. The Manila version of the The Henry of Cebu. Exactly a year ago we visited the Henry hotel in Cebu which is the original and the first

How cool are the people that work for The Henry Hotel
We were at the US Embassy so after our morning there, we decided to have breakfast at Apt 1B which was nearby already. We wanted to see the new Henry Hotel by Hanky and Christine and Apt 1B operates the coffeeshop of the hotel. It is by the reception area- look for the secret door
There are three kinds of villas in Banyan Tree – depending on what view you like Beachfront for beach Lagoon Villa for Lagoon and mountain and Hillside Villa which is in the hill and overlooking the beach and the whole resort
Another beautiful place discovered!!! This time in Central Vietnam. If you want solitude, peace, relaxation and time away from the world, this is a good place to be It’s an hour and a half from Danang airport and there is nothing around the place, so you have no choice but to stay and just relax haha!!
I love the lanterns!!! This area is the land of the lanterns because they are near Hoi An where all the lanterns are manufactured
We wanted to stay in Park Hyatt hotel but it was under renovation. So we stayed in Intercontinental Asiana which was also a bit in renovation mode but it was very okay. We enjoyed our stay and the location is quite good since we just walked to the places we wanted to go to

There is only one suite (A Villa) in Azumi Hotel which is on the rooftop / penthouse floor (17th flr). This is where we stayed. It is by the hotel pool and has a 360 degree view. As I feature this, this has been removed already so we are lucky to have stayed here. Romulo Cafe will turn it into a restaurant or rooftop bar. Construction started right after we checked out a few weeks ago
The pool is actually open to all the hotel residents so during the day there are a lot of people in the pool. So there is not much privacy in the A Villa but at 10pm – the pool is closed so the whole top floor is yours
Looking into the A Villa It’s the living room and dining table with kitchen -On the other side is the view on the other side of the building which is a more private balcony – no one can go to that balcony. The hubby is working again on our staycation haha!!
here it is- living room and dining room
I love staycations, but mostly I like discovering nice places around the city. Going to Alabang is quite far for me already so for me it’s a getaway to go there and I am happy there are some nice places to go to like Azumi. Thank you to Chris and Patty for hosting us in their beautiful boutique hotel.
Azumi Boutique Hotel at Madrigal Business Park Alabang. Just look for the black building. Originally Chris built this as a condo building to be sold to individuals but last minute saw the demand for hotels in the area so he converted it. It’s a 3-star hotel conveniently located – very near Molito and Ayala Alabang Towncente
On each floor of the hotel as the elevator opens is a panel which looks like an artwork but is really textured tiles by Ecocarat. A brand of tiles which the owner of Azumi, Chris Chilip, brings in from Japan. It absorbs harmful substances, moisture and odors. ECOCARAT is a revolutionary natural ceramic tile for interior wall surfaces. Designed for surfaces not subject to becoming wet, INAX succeeded in developing a completely new building material that provides functional and aesthetic features beyond conventional tiles. By controlling room humidity, odors and harmful substances, ECOCARAT fosters healthful and comfortable living at a level unmatched by other wall surfacing products.
There are 187 rooms in Azumi Boutique Hotel with 17 rooms per floor. My favorite is on the 5th floor- the Garden rooms which has a balcony/garden. It also has a daybed for an extra person or just as a sofa. ?Room rates range from around P2,700 to P3,500 per night. I heard that when there is brownout, the residents of the villages look for hotels to stay in and this is one of the options
