It was Friday and rush hour traffic was bad but I was looking forward for the Halloween weekend because staycation with friends in the metro. My friends already arrived earlier because most of them are freelancers, while I opted to catch dinner with them. When I arrived at The Legend Villas, alighting from Robinsons Forum, I immediately went to *Lola Maria Restaurant where my friends are.
I immediately loved the traditional and elegant feel at their lobby with a taste of an early Christmas decorations. It has elaborate vintage details that seemingly takes you back to Filipino history. At their in house restaurant, the buffet showcases the best and various Filipino flavors that it was like home cooked by your own grandmother. They also offer a la carte dishes which cuisines come from the different regions of our country, Philippines. A la carte dining is available from 6 am to 10 pm, while room service is offered from 6 am to 10 pm.
After dinner, I then checked in and gathered my things to my favorite place in every hotel – bedroom. I mean you don’t call it staycation for nothing. The Legend Villas rooms and suites exude a combination of Filipino architecture, elegance and comfort filled with warm-toned, vintage furnishing and cozy wooden accents. Ours was a Deluxe Room which entails the usual comfort you are looking for -- cable TV, ac, a mini-bar, telephone, work table and Wi-FI connection. Other rooms available are Studio Room, Family Room, Villa Suite, Team Suite, and Executive Suite. Moreover, they also have conference rooms for business conferences and outdoor pool for those looking to swim their stress away.
The weekend came and went by so fast but it was one memorable one and The Legend Villas helped it to become one. Their homey feel and style that greets you from hotel lobby entrance to their restaurant and rooms brings over an extra special comfort and experience. Plus the hotel is strategically located near famous landmarks along Mandaluyong, EDSA: MRT Boni, behind SM Light Residences, and 2-min walk from Robinsons Forum.
