I love cityscapes. And with the fast growing skyline of Metro Manila, it's an exciting time to savor the view. This is one of the reasons why I wanted to try Privato Hotel in Kapitolyo Pasig. I saw a couple of photos of the hotel pool with the wonderful view of Ortigas Skyline and I thought I have to try the place. And I was not disappointed. Crave satisfied. We checked a few weeks ago. June is officially rainy season in the Philippines but we were blessed with not-so-gloomy weather. Perfect for another relaxing staycation weekend.
Privato Hotel is an Italian-inspired business and lifestyle hotel in Pasig City, strategically located near Capitol Commons, an upcoming lifestyle and dining development, and the Ortigas Central Business District. The hotel boasts of 177 rooms designed in contemporary style. You can walk-in and book a room but I suggest you book online as it is normally cheaper. For example, you can book Privato Hotel in Pasig City with Traveloka and get a good deal.
Thanks to DealGrocer, we got a deluxe double queen room for only 1,800 pesos, breakfast not included.
Our room faces Shaw Blvd side with Citystate tower immediately facing the view. One the right is the flat vastness of Pasig area allowing an uninterrupted view of as far as Antipolo and the hills of Rizal Province. On the left is the vibrant Ortigas Central Business District. Our curtains were kept closed most of the time though as the room is spacious amd there no feeling of being boxed in a cramped space. I prefer the intimate lighting inside and the warmth it gives the senses.
The Rooftop Pool
Privato is a mid-rise hotel with only around 25 or so floors but they made a good job at maximizing spaces especially the rooftop area where the pool, gym and Verona Rooftop Lounge are located. So you have one pool on Shaw Blvd side going up a few step on your left once exiting the elevator and on the right is the lounge. Next to the pool is the gym.
VERONA ROOFTOP LOUNGE
11:00AM to 12:00MN
Verona Rooftop Lounge serves international cuisine that will surely satisfy your palate. During sunset, unwind with your favorite drink, and enjoy the scenic view of Makati and Fort Bonifacio from the bar on the 23rd floor.
6:00AM to 10:00AM
Enjoy a hearty breakfast at the stylish Piazza Privato located on the 6th floor of the hotel. Nice interior if I may see and a nice view of BGC area from here. The food I cannot review because we opted to eat out that morning.
DINNER AT NAV MODERN THAI CUISINE
Another reason why we wanted to staycation here is because of the area. It's only because it is stress-free because of easy access via Shaw Blvd but also because of the food scene. Kapitolyo Village, next to the hotel, is home to some of the interesting restaurants in the metro.
Rub, Charlie's Grind and Grill, Cab Cafe, Cafe Juanita, Epic Coffee Roastery, Haru Sushi Bar and Restaurant, Poco Deli, Ramen Cool, Three Sisters, Ser Chef Lechon, Uncle Moe's Shawarma Hub, Lia's Cake in Season, Thai Dara, so many to choose from!
