A magnifique stay at Sofitel Manila’s Club Millesime Club Room! (Part 1)

20140519-090022-32422843.jpg

It’s not everyday that I or we, as a family, get to stay at a hotel. So, whenever we are invited for a staycation and the schedule permits, we grab the opportunity. Who wouldn’t?

We were very fortunate enough to be invited by the gracious and lovely ladies of Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila, Blessy Townes and Jane Santiago, to have a 3-day/2-night staycation at Club Millésime’s Club Room a few weeks back!Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club Millesime

We were welcomed by Jane at the lobby to bring us straight to the 10th floor where Club Millésime is located.Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club Millesime

Club Millésime is a hotel within a hotel that offers impeccable service where guests get that exclusive vibe. Only Club Room guests can access the Club Millèssime Lounge as well as the use of the club’s facilities and its perks.Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club Millesime20140519-104809-38889329.jpg20140519-104842-38922754.jpg20140519-104913-38953131.jpg

Canapes, macarons and even local delicacies like suman.Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club MillesimeSofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club MillesimeSofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club Millesime

But what I really loved was their honey truffle! I almost died!Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club MillesimeThe truffle flavor was well incorporated with the honey which I fondly partnered with nuts! So, if you get the chance to stay at Club Millésime, request for this because this is not offered in any other restaurant in Sofitel.

Club Millésime also offers complimentary a la carte breakfast, cocktails and daily wine tasting from 5 to 7PM.

They also have a library (Yes! Can you believe it?), a playroom for the kids and you can even borrow DVDs for your movie night in the room.Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club Millesime

This was where our personalized express check-in was processed while having fresh pineapple juice and an afternoon buffet snack.Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club Millesime

Right after having our afternoon snack, we were immediately whisked to our room.Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club Millesime

We were given adjacent rooms – for us and the kids.Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club Millesime

First thing I noticed was the fruit platter and paté with dried fruits to partner with the complimentary wine. Of course, right beside it was a welcome note from the General Manager, Adam Laker.Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club Millesime

Our room has a king sized bed with really soft beddings.Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club Millesime

The kids were provided with 2 separate beds in their own room.Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club MillesimeObviously, my kids already made themselves comfortable. Look at their body’s contour on the bed.

Sofitel boasts of their “MyBed” experience wherein you can tailor fit your pillows to your own preference.Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club MillesimeA MyBed Pillow Menu is placed by your bedside table. You can customize your pillows to ensure wellness and optimum comfort with selections that range from fluffy, firm and even adjustable pillows that follow your body’s contour. All pillows are filled with special hypo-allergenically treated duck down and feathers. But even if you opt to stick with the original pillows, it is still absolutely comfortable and probably one of the best (if not THE best) you will ever try!

Both rooms have coffee and tea making facilities.Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club Millesime

In-room safe (This is very important to me).Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club Millesime

Of course, our rooms have private balconies as well.Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club Millesime

Oh! Club Millésime guests are really spoiled! We were surprised when a housekeeper rang our doorbell and gave us a bottle of Mango Rum Liqueur with some pastries.Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila Club MillesimeCan be enjoyed as is, taken on the rocks or with crushed ice. You can also use it for cooking or create an exciting cocktail drink to enjoy with friends!
