She handled all the reservation details and I was very pleased she got really nice rates via a new travel booking site Traveloka (Click here for the Link - Traveloka Philippines). It prides itself as the most affordable with the best promo rates booking site in the country.  
She booked three (3) double junior suite premier for just 3200 per room (inclusive of buffet breakfast for 2). Wonderful right?

Nobu Hotel City of Dreams Manila

We love the month of June.  We have so many things to be thankful for.. hubby's birthday, our wedding anniversary and father's day.
So as it was a special month for our family, we planned a special weekend staycation to celebrate ~ an overnight stay in one of City of Dreams' luxury hotels "Nobu Hotel".
We booked a family staycation package inclusive of  breakfast for two (2) at the Nobu Restaurant and 4 hours Dream Play passes for 2 adults and 2 kids.
Booking was fast and easy, done via phone.  I gave reservations my card and contact details and received an immediate confirmation. 
Check in was a breeze considering there were a lot of guests coming in.  The staff were at their best and quite efficient. Nobu Hotel spells luxury living.  You can truly feel sophistication as you step in to Nobu's hotel lobby.

Yehey!  Our room card access and our Dream Play vouchers.
