Sometimes the challenge of roaming around the Metro and nearby cities is to find a place without so many people. Going out on a Saturday or Sunday with the aim to de-stress becomes a failure when our trip is consumed by the overwhelming number of people we get to battle as they stroll and line-up to dine.
If you are around Mall of Asia (MOA) area and you found the crowd quite exhausting especially during the weekends, you can hop to Conrad Manila and S Maison. Conrad offers a spectacular view of the sunset bay and S Maison gives a more peaceful but delicious mall experience (a lot of stores are still closed but the restaurant selection is satisfying enough, given a few number at the moment). The establishment just opened last June 15 but is already gaining a lot of visitors.
What to do at Conrad?
~ Just enjoy the view and love the ambiance.
~ Watch at S Maison’s Director’s Club Cinema ( a deluxe theater that can seat 40 to 50 guests for a more comfy type of movie watching with La-Z-Boy Power Recline sofa).
- For Ramen fanatics (!!!), check Uma Uma at 2/F S Maison.
- To drool over fried chicken, go to Buffalo Wild Wings at Seaside Blvd. corner Coral Way.
- For a more intimate Asian-cuisine meal, make a reservation at China Blue by Jereme Leung located around 3/F Conrad Lobby. It’s a must to order their mushroom bun!
- There is a Starbucks at S Maison but the coffee at the C Lounge (also at 3/F Hotel floor lobby) is worth a try. The iced latte is a real treat and served with walnuts and tofu chips on the side.
Conrad Hotels & Resorts is an international luxury property managed by Hilton Worldwide located within the MOA complex, Pasay City. It houses 347 rooms and owned by SM Hotels and Conventions Corporation.
Come there now before it gets too crowded!
