When looking for a hotel, what are the things that you look for? If you would ask me, I would search for a lot of qualities. I know you would agree with me that in searching for a staycation destination with specific hotel amenities can such be a daunting task. You would say I'm so much of a pihikan but at the end of the day, you would only thank yourself for being that pihikan because you got the best for your well-deserved peace and quiet staycation. 

This is especially true for certain types of travelers: A decent room with a comfortable bed works for the on-the-go traveler. The picky eater needs mouthwatering buffets or a la carte dishes from flagship restaurants. A water baby prefers to stay under the sun in a cozy pool, while a socialite might look for a hip in-house bar. One can also require an impressive first impression from the reception area’s aesthetics. 

That said, Traveloka has rounded up a list of 25 staycation hotels with the best amenities to help those who are looking to have staycations in Metro Manila, Cebu, and Davao. The list features lodging luxuries such as swimming pools, breakfast buffet service, flagship restaurants, in-house bars, and even the lobby, as well as distinct activities. 

For the hotels with best swimming pools, Richmonde Hotel and Mella Hotel in Ortigas and Las Pinas, respectively, start the list for Metro Manila. The Crimson Resort and Spa Cebu Mactan and Hotel Tropika Davao wraps up this portion with equally stunning swimming pool facilities. Apart from the structural design and appearance, the line-up also considered the perks guests can experience, like food and beverages to be consumed by the pool, among others. 

Foodie travelers who can’t begin the day on an empty stomach, can refer to these hotels for the best, most extensive breakfast buffet options in town. Cafe Ilang Ilang of The Manila Hotel headlines this list, as well as Diamond Hotel’s Corniche for Metro Manila area. Waterfront Cebu Hotel and Casino’s UNO and Radisson Blu’s Feria are the go-to places in Cebu, while Waterfront Insular Davao’s equally delicious breakfast fare completes the list. 

Continuing the eater’s guide to great food flagship restaurants offering hearty meals with quality ingredients and a wide selection of offerings. Essential Goodness, for the Pilgrims at Lub d Makati and Discovery Suites Manila’s Prime 22 are gastronomic havens in Metro Manila. Cafe Marco in Marco Polo Plaza Cebu and Radisson Blu Cebu’s Urban Table Events Plaza offer culinary masterpieces in the Queen City of the South. Bondi&Bourke at The Bourke Hotel is a new hotspot worth the visit in Davao. 

Those in search of a good time need to be in these best hotel bars around the country.

Maayo Hotel Cebu’s Dayun Lounge bar and Bai Hotel Cebu’s Twilight Roofdeck Lounge + Bar, as well as Marco Polo Davao’s Eagle Bar wrap up the socializer’s list for Cebu and Davao, respectively. These joints provide the best drinking ambiance accompanied by sumptuous chow and light or heavy libations for every traveler. 

Traveler’s with a discerning visual palette can enjoy these hotels at first glance of the lobbies. The Manila Hotel and Nuwa Manila in The City of Dreams are Metro Manila’s finest. In Seda Ayala Center Cebu and The Henry Hotel Cebu, the lobbies are eye-catching, while Park Inn by Radisson Davao takes the cake for this list.
