Your home for the holidays

/ 05:43 PM November 18, 2021

For a “beyond ordinary” Christmas staycation in Makati, book a stay at Aruga Apartments.

Now that travel protocols within the Philippines have been eased, many of us are surely looking forward to going out of town for the holidays. With Christmas less than a month and a half away, it’s high time to make those vacation plans. Visiting your favorite (and much missed!) island destinations are expected to be more convenient and less time-consuming now, especially if you’re fully vaccinated.

Whether you’re planning to spend your Christmas and New Year holidays in the city or outside the metro, there are lots of choice hotels and resorts that are waiting with open arms for tourists and guests.



Aruga Apartments

Makati City

If you’re wishing for a “beyond ordinary” Christmas staycation in Makati, book a stay at Aruga Apartments. Located within Rockwell Center in Makati, guests at Aruga Apartments get to enjoy proximity to one of the city’s finest shopping, dining and leisure destinations, being just a few steps away from Power Plant Mall. Each suite at Aruga Apartments comes with a private balcony, fully equipped kitchen, complete amenity setup for daily essentials, Netflix-ready TV (because what’s a staycation without catching up on those series and movies on your list?) and high speed WiFi access for multiple devices.

Kalinaw Resort


If, throughout the lockdown, you’ve been dreaming of waking up to the sound of soothing ocean waves and relaxing underneath the mesmerizing sway of the leaves of coconut trees, then a holiday in Siargao is for you. It has world-class surfing spots, pristine white beaches, abundant palm trees and lush mangrove forests. No wonder it was voted “best island in Asia” in Condé Nast Traveller’s Readers’ Choice Awards 2021 and was also chosen by Time as among the World’s 100 Greatest Places 2021.

Check out the picturesque Kalinaw Resort when looking for a home away from home in this island paradise. It is located right in front of the beach and practically a few steps (and paddles) from all the best surf spots in General Luna. Swing by its website, or email [email protected] for inquiries or reservations.
