A Weekend at the Hotel H2O

Last year, we were lucky enough to join my dad and sister at the Hotel H2O (my sister’s treat!). What exactly is this well-talked about hotel? It is the first aquarium-themed hotel in Manila near Rizal Park. It is also located near the Hispanic walled city of Intramuros, China Town, National Museum, US Embassy, Philippine Convention Center and the Cultural Center of the Philippines.


Hotel guests can’t help but feel like nautical royalty with the hotel rooms’ floor-to-ceiling windows, aquarium walls, or city/ bay views. Every room has a private toilet and shower, LCD TV with cable and pay-per-view movies, Internet access, and mini-bar. Other amenities include a coffee/ tea maker, hair dryer, safe, telephone, and luggage rack.

We were tickled to find my sister’s name on the huge LCD TV welcoming her and her companions. Talk about personalized!

Hubby and I loved the plush accommodations, while our Bea just loved the fishes in the walls.

The accommodations came with tickets to the Oceanarium where one can find various creatures of the sea. Too bad though it can get a bit crowded and hot inside because of the volume of visitors. It’s still a very enjoyable experience.

After the tour at the Ocenarium (Manila Ocean Park), we recharged a bit for some drinks at the lounge on the deck. For dinner, one may feast on Asian cuisine at the Makan Makan Asian Food Village or like us, you can just eat at nearby restaurants. We ate at Inasal Atbp.

The following morning, we had a heavy breakfast at the all-you-can-eat buffet (also included with the accommodations).

My Bea was bent on trying the swimming pool so the whole family (except my dad) trekked to the pool area. There was also a Jacuzzi where kids can splash around in the bubbly water. The swimming area was pretty big and we had wonderful view of the Sea Lion Show...for free!

Berto and Kwala recommend staying at this hotel. A great place to escape the summer's scorching heat. Service are professional and personnel are friendly. Plus where else can you sleep with that under the sea feeling, complete with fishes of various colors and sizes looking at you?!
