Belated Happy Easter! Or something.
My family and I will never run out of reasons to go on staycation.
Welcome to Hotel Okura Manila!
Hotel Okura Manila is a chic, minimalist Japanese hotel and a fairly new addition to the Resorts World Manila complex. In fact, it’s so new that it only had its soft opening last December. Their main lobby is still under construction.
Aside from its rooftop pool, one of the best features of this hotel features your very own hinoki wooden bathtub inside the suite. It’s a mini Japanese hot springs experience in a handcrafted tub only a few steps from your bed.
(Yes, my mom saw this on her friend’s feed, and my generous sister was almost immediately onboard.)
I actually came from a morning 7PM to 6PM duty at the ambulatory care unit of the ER (thank you to my batchmates for letting me out early). So this warm soak felt extra well-deserved.

I just realize this post feels like a spiritual sequel to our holiday stay in Okada, a nearby Japanese hotel in Entertainment City.
Do you like my top? My mom crocheted it herself!
We had lunch at home and a foot spa with pedicure at Tokyo Glam in Ayala Malls by the Bay. And that was it for our short and simple easter weekend.
I felt a little but resurrected myself, to be honest. We all need for self-care weekends.
