Earlier this month, Random Republika‘s growing team composed of the authors Kate (Manila) and Paolo (Singapore) and friends-slash-volunteers Denise, Van, and JP had an official blog photoshoot in the South. Our team was joined in by our IT consultant and photographer Darren of Darbee Creatives. We were lucky to have the five-star Filipinoluxury hotelAcacia Hotel Manila in Alabang as our shoot location and home for the weekend.
Sweet welcome. Acacia lived up to the standards of Filipino hospitality. We felt the warmth as we were greeted by these upon arrival at the junior suite.
Get a glimpse of our junior suite which had enough space for us to move around, a nice living room upon the entrance, and floor-to-ceiling windows for a view of Alabang.
Two thumbs up for Acacia’s orthopedic beds. In case you’ll check in soon, get ready for some deep sleep like what we experienced.
Despite our shoot happening on a weekend, Acacia’s marketing manager Marla Mendoza kept in touch and made sure we had everything we need. We were provided with extra beds even before we made a request. Excellent service.
Acacia Hotel is strategically located near business and commercial establishments. It is just 20 minutes away from the airport.
Here’s a quick virtual tour of the different areas in the hotel:
Patterns and textures abound the interior design.
