And I did get to spend quiet and quality time with my wife on Holy Week, I am glad we checked in at COCOON BOUTIQUE HOTEL.
Cocoon Boutique Hotel past the initial "smell and feel test".
And what about the room?The smell and the ambiance are the most important first impression markers. I immediately noticed the wooden accent on the wall (opposite the bed) which is used to help fix the 32inch flat screen tv.Call it one of the signatures of this hotel.That,with the wooden floor added a rustic appeal to the room.
I thought their deluxe rooms are wider than that of other hotels.I don't like long but narrow deluxe rooms as they give a feeling of being squeezed in a closed space each time one moves in and out.The bed at Cocoon is a sweetheart.King size for a deluxe room? Why not! It easily makes it to the upper part of my list when it comes to best hotel beds.Oh,for a boutique hotel,I would put it on top!
Owe it to their use of Egyptian Cotton with 400 thread count that they are going to upgrade to 600 thread count soon!
It was brave for a boutique hotel to incorporate a pool in their building.Although small,the pool ads accent to the DECK where the restaurant and the bar are located.We enjoyed lazying around the poolside while sipping cold refreshment.My wife immediately took a dip while I was busy checking my social media accounts.It was already getting dark and I wasn't into it yet.I was finally enticed to take a dip when they opened the lights.The pool turned blue at night which made it more romantic.
I love this section of the hotel!
at the Deck Bar
The Deck Bar is an open air restaurant setup where breakfast buffet is served.It is refreshing to see an al fresco restaurant in the city.Lakas maka-resort feel.It was here where we had a hearty breakfast which I will be writing about in a separate entry soon.
Low-e laminated windows and doors.
Rain and ground water tapped for toilet flushing and general house cleaning.
Inverter-type airconditioner using non-ozone damaging R410A refrigerant.
With all the hotels and accommodations I have tried,I know when they are faking it.At Cocoon Boutique Hotel, I noticed that employees put service at heart.
The 2nd floor leading to Iris Spa is where one can use computers for miscellaneous purposes.Of course they have good wifi system (even in rooms) but this is where you connect to the web in case you don't bring any laptop or tablet with you.
Timog and Tomas Morato area are of course well known for so many massage and spa establishments so the competition is really tough.I know Iris Spa is new in the playing field so I set my expectations low.I was surprised at how well designed the place is.By the way the massage rooms,the sauna,locker room and restrooms were designed and structured,you know that they have planned the place well.We had our massage in a private room and the quality falls on the upper part of our list in this price range of 600php.The have really comfortable massage beds ----heated beds at that---- and well experienced masseurs.Iris Spa deserves a separate blog post which I will be sharing to you soon.Please look for it.

“Remarkable Place to Relax”
Reviewed January 22, 2013
"This place may look ordinary on the outside but once you've checked-in you'll see that this is an extraordinary place. The lobby is so cozy and the front desk staff are so welcoming. I've read in their manifesto that the interiors of this hotel were made from recycled materials which adds character to the place....."
“Excellent Customer Service”
Reviewed November 21, 2012
"What good is a hotel with extremely nice furnishings, state of the art facilities if it has poor customer service? I personally chose Cocoon Boutique Hotel because I've been hearing a lot of everything nice about their customer service. It's a boutique hotel, it looks small from the outside but when you get inside, it's surprisingly spacious. Staff will greet..."
"A sanctuary that covers you in softness" is not just a claim but something you can feel and experience at Cocoon Boutique Hotel. It's nice to know that with all the modern rooms and amenities, you are actually taking part in the movement for a greener environment.For me though, the most important thing is the genuine hospitality that experienced during our stay.It's the Cocoon difference.My wife definitely agrees.
