Swanky digs in the CBD canyon

The feeling of retreating into complete luxury in a five-star hotel after a long day of work or shopping, is one we could get used to. But frequent business travellers, in particular, will know that the novelty wears off after some time — and one starts craving the comforts of home, even if just for a few weeks.

The solution? Serviced apartments, which are fully-furnished accommodation options available for both short-term and long-term stays — providing guests with hotel-like services and amenities such as daily breakfast, room service, business lounges, well-equipped fitness centers, and expansive swimming pools.

Great choice

Serviced apartments are a great choice for business travellers temporarily moving to a city for months at a time, as well as professionals who want to stay within walking distance to their offices in the Central Business District (CBD), instead of jostling with the peak hour crowd every morning.

Metro Manila is host to a range of luxurious serviced apartments for the modern business traveller, or affluent professional. One of them is the Somerset Millennium, a 30-storey development which rises over the business and commercial centers of Legaspi Village in Makati City.

Somerset Millennium is within walking distance to a wealth of lifestyle options, including the luxurious CBD-located malls where a variety of restaurants and entertainment venues are available. 

“Serviced apartments are great for business travellers who are on short or long business trips, as well as families, and big groups travelling together,” explained Heidi Manabat, marketing manager of Ascott Limited. “The comprehensive range of facilities available — including in-house dining experiences and housekeeping services — is a key reason why people would choose serviced apartments over apartment rentals.”

Comprehensive amenities

Each of Somerset Millennium’s 132 units, from its studio to one- to three-bedroom residences, offer contemporary interiors with kitchen amenities, separate dining areas and spacious living areas in most residences and wireless internet (WiFi).

The project also has a residents’ lounge, fitness center, and outdoor swimming pool & jacuzzi.

One can have a wide variety of choices from a spacious studio, to a one-bedroom with a huge living room area or a two-bedroom unit.

Home away from home

For those in need of a haircut while ensconced in comfortable surroundings, John Barbers is located at the ground floor of the building, where one can get a quick massage, and some personal grooming as well.

In the mood for a twist on some classic  Spanish-Filipino cuisine? There is the  Abuela, at the 2nd Floor. If not, one you can always take a quick walk to Greenbelt or some surrounding restaurants around Legaspi like Kitchen 1B.

For those who want to de-stress with a spa treatment, the Paradasia Royale Spa at the building’s basement offers a beaconing ambience to relax body and soul.
