Shangri-La at The Fort is offering an all-inclusive Family Fun staycation package for parents looking for a quick getaway with their kids without the hassle of getting out of the metro. The package starts at Php 10,000 per night and can be availed by those who make their booking reservations online.
“Bonifacio Global City is an exciting 24/7 city where everyone can play, work, and live. A staycation at the center of a young and dynamic community is anything but boring. It’s a perfect balance of fun and relaxation,” said General Manager of Shangri-La at the Fort and Area Vice President for Shangri-La Philippine Properties John Rice.
What’s there to do?
Upon check-in, guests will enjoy spacious rooms or suites with floor to ceiling windows that feature a breathtaking Metro Manila cityscape. Freshen up a bit and enjoy the rest of the afternoon by jumping in any of our two outdoor swimming pools.
Mom and dad can also squeeze in a bit of fitness as they can enjoy full access to Kerry Sports Manila’s fitness facilities. Feeling a little competitive? Take a swing at Kerry Sports Manila’ssquash and tennis courts.
Kids 12 years old and below also have access to Shangri-La at the Fort’s Adventure Zone, Metro Manila’s largest indoor jungle gym faring at 1,000 sqm. The demon drop slide is a must-try for daring kids (and adults, too) with a height of almost two-storeys! Don’t forget to pack long-sleeved shirts, long pants, and socks for the kids for the required attire.
Wake up to a steady weekend morning with a family buffet breakfast at High Street Cafe, a modern food hall lined with an array of offerings from the different stations or “neighborhoods” which include Japanese, Mediterranean, Chinese, Western, Seafood and Raw Bar, Salad Bar, Rotisserie and a Dessert section.
After a hearty breakfast, why not take an early morning stroll around the city with the complimentary use of the Bambikes, a locally handmade bamboo bicycle. Just check with our Concierge to check the availability.
If not, guests can stay in and enjoy the weekend slow down a bit more. There’s no need to rush with a 2 p.m. late check-out. (This, of course, is still subject to availability)
Golden Circle (https://www.shangri-la.com/en/corporate/golden-circle/)members can also earn points in which, when accumulated, can be redeemed for free room nights or other hotel services in over 500 Shangri-La restaurants and bars globally.
The Family Fun staycation package is valid for stays on Fridays to Sundays until 30 November 2019, as well as August 21 (Wednesday) to 26 (Monday) — the weekend that includes the two holidays.
Child-friendly spots around Bonifacio Global City
Bonifacio Global City (BGC) is fast becoming the preferred venue for people to live, work, and play. Here are a few kid-friendly attractions and activities around the area that are easily accessible from the hotel:
- Central Square: a four-level upmarket retail destination with a supermarket and cinemas directly across the hotel.
