This prime destination remains to be the only marine-themed urban resort in the country. As we can gather from its name, Hotel H2O has a deep affinity for the wonders of water, and its proximity to both the Manila Bay and Manila Ocean Park provide its guests with sea-themed options for entertainment and sight-seeing.

Want to know what makes Hotel H2O your fam’s best bet for summer fun and relaxation in the metro? Take your pick from these reasons:

1. You can enjoy a unique stay in your marine-themed room

Given the hotel’s proximity to the sea, it’s only fitting that Hotel H2O’s stylish, contemporary rooms would showcase the ocean’s resplendent beauty, particularly its Premiere Classic Bay Room.

This posh accommodation opens to a receiving area furnished with a spacious desk as well as a comfy sofa (that transforms into a day bed) and a large-screen LCD TV, making the option for family members to work remotely, then transition to relaxation and entertainment quite seamless.

On the other hand, Premiere Classic rooms that do not face the bay showcase an aquarium wall where guests can gain some serenity while watching the graceful dance of colorful fish against brilliant corals.

Spend your holiday at Bayview Park Hotel Manila, “your home by the bay”

Roxas Boulevard is a historic avenue, being near to many culturally significant landmarks such as the Rizal Monument, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Philippine International Convention Center, the Malate Church, the Manila Zoo, the Walled City of Intramuros and more.

Checking these sites out or simply enjoying Manila Bay’s famous sunset might be in your holiday wish list but Metro Manila’s severe traffic situation, especially during the holiday rush, can be quite a hindrance.

Why not explore Roxas Boulevard and its nearby attractions to your heart’s content, on Christmas or New Year’s Eve even, with no need to worry about the drive home by staying at Bayview Park Hotel Manila?

Priding itself on being “your home by the bay,” Bayview Park Hotel Manila offers you the comforts of home while giving you easy access to the bayside’s myriad attractions, especially during the holiday season.

Sate your hunger from a day of wandering and get on with the merrymaking with the hotel’s Christmas and New Year’s Eve Festivity Dinner. At only Php950 (net) per person, you can indulge in an all you can eat dinner buffet with a free-flowing selection of cocktail drinks from 7pm to 11pm on December 24 and 31.
