S E A M L E S S -

N E S S   F O R


My city hotel review ventures recently took me all the way to the neighboring province of Laguna, particularly in Sta. Rosa which is an hour away from Metro Manila. I was to make an immersion at some Nuvali-based attractions with Seda Hotel as base.

Since my legs and feet were lumpy (and they still are as of this writing due to medicine side effects) at the time of my visit of the sprawling 2,290-hectare eco-community, I simply enjoyed watching adventurers do wakeboarding at Republ1c Wakepark and the physically fit tackle the High Ropes and other team-building obstacle courses at Camp N (N for Nuvali).

City Hotel and Resort For Business and Leisure

What I enjoyed the most during my visit of Sta. Rosa was the resort-style ambiance at Seda Hotel. Located next to the man-made lake where guests could see water taxis or ferry boats (P30 per head per ride) glide between 8:00am and 5:00pm daily, the 150-room hotel is ideal for business-oriented stays. With the abundance of adventure attractions surrounding the establishment, it's also good as temporary headquarters for solo travelers or families who are into biking, bird-watching, camping and other outdoor activities.

Truly Deluxe

My overnight Deluxe Room accommodation worked for me quite well. Seda Hotel's complimentary wireless internet access allowed me to perform my writing tasks, including sending articles via email to my social media network contacts.

When not in my room and in front of my laptop, the E-Lounge found at the hotel lobby got me connected on Facebook and Twitter via iMacs. The 40-inch wide-screen LED HDTV made cable show viewing entertaining from my comfy bed.

My room's work desk was large enough to accommodate my laptop and other work materials unlike in a hotel I previously stayed in. And since I have a hard time standing up for long periods of time but eagerly recovering from staying put on beds, the room's alcove seating let me perform the simple (but difficult for me) task of undressing and dressing up.

Wonderful Breakfast and Other Good Points 

I enjoyed my breakfast buffet at the hotel's affiliate restaurant called Misto where I sipped hot coffee and got filled with salad, the usual morning meals, fancy pastry for dessert and sips of a cold apple drink with the view of the lake.

Although I was not able to take a dip at the pool, I enjoyed the pleasant view during breakfast and my time at the E-Lounge. I appreciate that I was able to borrow a Cherry Mobile charger from the front desk during my stay as I forgot to bring one for the trip.

Seda Hotel does live up to its identity and brand as its a Filipino word for silk, giving guests like me a seamless experience of convenience and comfort. Retail shops are just a 10-minute walk away from the lobby and there are shared facilities available inside the establishment like the play and game rooms for kids and young-at-heart, plus a spa and gym for tired sojourners.
