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

And you can get a glimpse of how the interiors of the development will be.
The interiors of Shangri-la at the Fort are by Manny Samson. Manny Samson lived in LA for two decades and came back to live in Asia. He has done several projects all over the world, majority of which are in Asia. To name a few, St. Regis and Ritz Carlton in Bali, Shangri-la Mactan, Solaria Resorts and Casino and many more. He does only resorts and hotels. His style is subtle luxury. And according to Julie, there will be many Filipino materials and designs used in the development. Subtle luxury =class = Shangrila-la. This is my friend Julie who is the Director of Sales and Marketing for this development
The other office of Horizon Homes

In exactly a year from now, the Horizon Homes will be turned over to the unit buyers and it will be 20 floors of residential condos with 98 units which includes the Penthouse unit. This will be on top of 41 floors of Shangri-La at the Fort. We are looking forward to this new development because for sure this will be a beautiful one. The Kwoks are very hands on for this project so you can be assured of the quality that Shangri-la is known for.
I’ve always dreamt of living in Rockwell. It’s true when they say “Be careful what you wish for….dream for… or even worse …pray for!” Because today my dream came true I just checked in Aruga services apartments at the Edades Tower for a staycation and it’s so nice!!!!
Secret passage from and to the Powerplant mall and Aruga serviced apartments.
You need your apartment key as access so it’s safe plus there’s a security guard it’s right beside The Marketplace by Rustan’s so it’s so convenient!!! Love it here! Wait didn’t I just say that?
