We booked a room at Discovery Primea for a girls night out. The hotel is situated along Ayala Ave. Malls are easily accessible with an underpass entry right in front of the lobby entrance.

I checked-in early at 1pm. The room is undoubtedly impressive. Service is just as excellent. Our package comes with an impeccable breakfast spread for two. The pool’s vista is the urban jungle of Makati and there’s a bar at the highest floor with the same amazing view. Primea made it to the top spot of my favorite hotel in Manila.

Staycation Weekend! Decided to spend it at Discovery Primea for our little gift to our Mom. We stayed at their Primea Suite King; Two bedroom suite with King beds. The entire place is huge. It’s 94 square meters, with about everything you’d need.


It comfortably sits a nice living room, with a four seater dining table and an open small kitchen with the basic stuffs, and a two door refrigerator. Did I mention that it also comes with a nespresso machine? And with unlimited refill? Oh yes it is!! They also have a working desk that welcomes you upon entrance. It has two bathrooms; one inside the “master’s bedroom” and the other outside. The bathroom at the Master’s is big, with a bath tub that allows you to relax and watch your favorite show on their TV. Both rooms plus the living room has TV with limited but enough cable and local channels. The place is very much well ventilated, and very well lit. Did I mention how big the beds were? Oh my! They say it’s a King but if there’s something bigger than that then that’s their bed size. It is huge that 3 adults can actually sleep in those beds. Very comfortable, and many pillows is a huge plus!! Totally loved it. Super comfortable accommodation.


All the staffs are nice and accommodating. Check-in is a breeze, and we mentioned it’s my Mom’s birthday and they prepared a banner for us with a special birthday cake. It’s pretty. I really appreciate it. We also asked for an extra nespresso capsule that’s nothing too strong in flavor and they gladly refill it for us. After we got back from our dinner, they made our bed and closed our curtains. They even prepared a “Goodnight” mat and it’s so sweet. We really felt special with their service. You’d definitely feel like a VIP in this hotel. By the way, valet parking also comes with the accommodation so no worries about that B5 or B6 level parking of yours.


Conveniently located among the convenience you can think of. I swear whether commute or by car. Sitting right across Glorietta is this tall building. The view is great with a mixture of tall buildings and residential houses. Plus a peak of Ayala Avenue and Glorietta on the other end.


All facilities are available at the third floor. The infinity pool is there which overlooks Makati skyline, and some of BGC and Manadaluyong. They also have a gym, spa and since the building is partly residential it is nice that they have a chapel where 10am masses every Sunday is held. They also have a salon, and a health facility.


Buffet breakfast is served at Tapenade to which I will have a separate review but the food though limited is delicious. There’s a good variety of breads and fruits. As well, Filipino staple breakfast such as eggs, bangus, adobo and alike.

The place is outstanding. I only have good words about this place. Everything about the room is lovely. It smells pleasant, and the interior is great. The view is interesting, and everything is comfortable. For a staycation for family or friends, I’m definitely recommending this place. This is very close to home, with the warm staffs and great accommodation, you cannot ask anything else.

What an excellent weekend..

My mom received a weekend stay at the Discovery Primea Loft. This was an amazing experience. We started off with some welcome drinks. We waited til around 4PM to got the loft prepared but it wasn't too bad.

When we arrived at the loft, we were surprised with how much space we had for ourselves. There were 2 bedrooms. 1 with a queen sized bed and the other one with a single bed. Both bedrooms had a spectacular view of Makati and Mandaluyong skyline. We also had a dining table for 8, a spacious living room area and a balcony. Each bedroom had its own restroom and bath area. One of these bath area had a tub with a flat screen (which I loved and my sister loved).

At around 8PM, we had a dip at their infinity pool which was freezing so we opted to just relax from the jaccuzi.

The next day, my mom and my sister enjoyed a buffet breakfast. Then finally ended the weekend with a few more laps at the pool.

These lofts dont come cheap however but if you have some extra cash to spend, I'd suggest that you take a weekend staycation to destress yourself.

Situated along Ayala Avenue in the Makati Central Business District,is a row of residential buildings known as Apartment Ridge. Amidst the city's shopping centers and business hubs, Discovery Primea Luxury Hotel in Makati occupies the most desirable corporate and residential address in the Philippines where business , leisure and culture converge.

Discovery Primea is a member of prestigious Preferred Hotels & Resorts LVX collection, a selection of refined and globally sophisticated hotels and resorts in coveted locations from vibrant city centers,to destination landscapes. Discovery Primea is sister company of Discovery Suites and Diacovery Shores Boracay.

So blessed that I was able to go around the different hotels in the metro, and lucky that I was finally to visit Discovery Primea just last Saturday. One of the reasons of my visit is to try their reataurants. They have Gillarmi lounge where you can have afternoon tea, The Tapenade and the newest and Manila's new dining destination which has the best view of dining in a Makati sky line.

The hotel was elegant , staffs are courteous and very professional , 5 start service 1108811088110881108811088

Super 5 Stars on a weekend staycation at Discovery Primea, we got the 2 Bedroom Suite which was ohsonice! The room with the king-sized bed had its own bathroom, and not just that... A bathtub with its own TV 12852210084128077🏻 And for starters we got welcoming treats, a selection of fine tasting chocolates and a chocolate crossword with strawberries bearing our names how sweet is that 128077🏻128077🏻128077🏻

The suite has options to request for Baby Stuffs like crib, playthings and even a stroller 128077🏻 and wardrobe closets which light up upon opening 128522 Having its own living, dining, and even your own workdesk..... The suite is armed with a functional kitchen complete with cooking equipments, utensils and even dishwashing accessories :) wait there's more there's even a washing machine to do laundry! Our suite had a great view of the Makati Skyline from the Zuellig Building, fronting the Urdaneta suburbs and looking over the amenity pool 128522128077🏻10084

Reaching the amenity level means access to the infinity pool, mind you this is the only thermal pool in the city, so you never have to fear about getting the chills once you step in the water128077🏻128077🏻128077🏻 The same level also leads us to more amenities of Primea such as the Spa, Souvenir Shop, Salon, a very minimally modern Chapel and a modern yet spacious gym!

Its location is perfect, walking distance to Ayala Glorietta... The Ayala side entrance serves as access for pedestrians because vehicular dropoff is situated at the back :D Can't say much for the excellent service, their staff is attentive and accomodating as well!

Most of all what really drew me to this hotel is because of its architectural features, one of which is that it was also done by the famous Japanese Architect Kenzo Tange! And that the building has the ball technology installed in case of earthquakes. So how cool is that? 128077🏻128077🏻128077🏻128077🏻128077🏻1108811088110881108811088127881127881127881127881127881 I 10084️ Discovery Primea 10084

Discovery Primea is our family's little secret which I almost didn't want to share. #50ksummergiveaway

This is one of the newest hotels in Makati. Every corner of the hotel spells elegance, complemented by exemplary customer service.

The minute we stepped in the lobby, my family immediately felt soo calm, relaxed, and important. Everyone had a smile on their faces, hurrying to assist.

We were immediately assisted for check in. While waiting for our room to be ready, we were assisted to Gilarmi Lounge where we enjoyed the very refreshing welcome drink. It didn't take a while for us to be roomed in.

As soon as we opened the door to our room, we were wowed by its understated elegance! There's a nice walk in closet with ample space for a family of four. In the same area is the bar with nespresso ( my favorite) with three (3) capsules, some complementary bottled water specially packaged for Primea. There were some cutleries and china should you need to have a quick meal. The bathroom was my children's favorite as it has both a shower and a tub. I had a relaxing warm bubble bath later that day to ease all the stress of the working week.

Our room had a little living room area and executive desk. It had an ipod dock so we were able to blast our favorite music while on a short vacay. The room was very roomy for my little family of 4. My hubby, little daughter, and myself fit well at the kingsize bed, while my son decided to sleep at the couch. We had one of the most amazing sleeps in this room. I have been to many 5-star hotels, but I must say that Primea is one of the favorites. I just love the privacy and elegance of Primea. In fact, a lot of my friends kept asking me where I was when I shared some photos on my social media. They were all curious.

Not to forget is their amazing restaurant, Tapenade. I have hosted several dinners here as this is a perfect mix of good quality food, reasonably priced, and perfect venue for some girl bonding. I loved Tapenade's Salad Room, where they not only serve salad but parma ham, cheeses, oysters, salmon, breads. You will never leave dissatisfied.

For breakfast, there were choices of set breakfast. I think the choices can be improved though. We ordered tapa (just ok), i had the lucban longganisa ( barely touched it) and my 7 yr old daughter ordered pancakes which to my surprise was charged extra. It was ok, but we should have just ordered room service for the price. Overall, I wouldn't say that it was a bad experience. I should order something else next time.

Another favorite is the pool. While Primea is situated right smack in the heart of the very busy Ayala Avenue, the pool gave out a different vibe. It made us feel that we were not in the city. Again, I loved how the space was so private. Hope it stays that way. I must commend the pool attendant, who would immediately welcome you and bring cold bottled water and towels to help you settle.

Overall, we had the most pleasant staycation at Primea and my family can't wait to go back this summer! :).

Who wouldn't love Discovery?

It was just a fine day for me, not excited of the thought we would stay in an executive suite. The lobby wasn't that grand but the high ceiling Christmas tree can caught your attention. The lounge was a bit small but super clean and classy. Oh and the restrooms too was ugh! I love it! You'll never see any dirt or mess.

We waited long tho before we got our room. And it was so disappointing. Good thing they gave us refreshments. And that too was so good! Up to now we're looking for something similar with it.

After minutes of idle time, we were accompanied by one of the staff in our room. It was really a nice gesture 'coz not all hotels do that. He even gave details about the place. Finally we reached our room. It was perfect! It was spacious and complete with utensils and appliances. Two bedrooms and fully air conditioned. Tho you can adjust the temp in the bedrooms. What I love also is the philips speaker/ipod dock where I can bring it anywhere in the room even in the bathroom. The masters bedroom's bathroom was equipped with shower, bathtub and tv inside. I also love their coffee maker. Easy to use and they have free coffee capsule too. 128077🏻

The pool area was great too. It's infinity pool where you can see the makati's skyline. 128077🏻 Breathtaking. 128561 And life guards were always attentive. They also provide snacks. Ham and cheese was good too! 128076🏻 The hotel is complete with gym, salon and church too. You'll love it here! 128513 Swear!

Who wouldn't love to hangout by the pool? Wine, pizza and pool really matches together specially when you're hanging out with family.

Their four-cheese brick oven pizza is so superb. You can ask them to order for you from the Tapenade and have it delivered at the pool area. This so happens because Tapenade is fully-booked that day and they can't accommodate walk-in guest. We are ushered to the pool area instead. We ordered wine from the wine list at the Plunge bar and have the pizza delivered by the pool.

One might think the entrance is along Ayala Ave but no - just like any other 5star hotel, they have a main entrance at the back. It's not as grand as Edsa Shang or Sofitel, in fact, upon entering it seems as if you'll exit ayala ave with just a few steps. 128517

The first turn to your left is your elevator, and the 2nd is your lounge / cafe and the buffet area.

The room - executive suite because it's work on a weekend. When staying in for a night or two in a hotel within the metro for a retreat, I surely wont get a suite. Would you?

Well this feels like your own condo with everything in it.

* Your own kitchen (yes you can cook)
* Your own DOLCE GUSTO with 6 available tubs and unlimited tea 128514
* Your own washing machine/dryer
* Your cupboards and shelves and a dining table for 2-4
* Your living room (not to mention there's a couch on the side too)
* Your office desk right across the kitchen
* Your x-inch tv AND IPOD DOCK.

Two rooms, one shared t&b and one t&b in the master's bedroom. No bath tubs though128516 Both rooms have TVs of course.

Other amenities of the hotel :
THE GYM. Everything you need, plus free bananas and water.
THE SPA. No way I'm paying for 3k+ for an hour of shiatsu. Let tourists enjoy this instead 128529
THE POOL. Looks like your infinity pool with a pleasant view of the city but. . . it has that residential vibe. Two pool areas, I must say! There's a jacuzzi too.

I'll have a separate post for the food! :)
