Metro Manila | A Weekend of Luxury in Nobu Hotel, City of Dreams Manila

This year turned out to be a crazy busy one for me. Not complaining though, because I loved working on the exciting things that I have been working on. But I would openly welcome opportunities to take a break from the busy daily grind. Imagine the joy when I learned that Blogapalooza is going to be in City of Dreams Manila! Aside from upgrading my knowledge and skills and networking with fellow bloggers from all over the country, we get to stay in the first-of-its-kind boutique Nobu Hotel in Asia as well. Of course, I'm attending! 😊

This is my review of my 3D2N stay in this posh boutique hotel.

To start off, here's a quick video during our stay there: 


Nobu Hotel is one of the three luxury hotels in City of Dreams Manila. It's a 10- to 15-min drive away from NAIA airport and also near SM Mall of Asia and other places of interest. Nobu Hotel is easily accessible via taxi or Grab car.

Detailed driving directions at the end of this post.


We stayed in a deluxe room, an air-conditioned 36-square-meter room with two queen beds, which are very comfortable and with fresh, well-pressed linen. The room features elegant, contemporary Japanese interiors plus a beautiful city view, where we can see airplanes flying to and from NAIA!


The wardrobe closet has a huge space for the luggage, complete with hangers, iron and ironing board. Bathrobes, bedroom slippers, bottled water, and a selection of Ikaati premium tea are provided for the guests as well.

And of course, for guests who have to catch up with work, there's a small table for work (and/or dining) in the room. Bonus points for the strong wifi connection!


The toilet and bathroom area is clean, spacious, and well-lit. Hot and cold shower is available. There are premium Natura Bisse toiletries for use.  Face, hand, and bath towels are of great quality as well.

Other personal items such as vanity kit, dental care kit, and sewing kit are also provided.


We arrived at Nobu Hotel close to midnight, but their staff are still all smiles and ready to help. We called up the reception to request for additional pillows, and they were quick to assist us. Everyone who worked in the hotel is courteous, well-trained, warm and friendly. They are very helpful, attentive, and are able to respond to our queries and requests.


Guests of the hotel have free access to the swimming pool and gym.

TIP: Pack your favorite swimwear and gym clothes (and footwear) should you plan to burn off those excess calories from their incredible breakfast buffet.


Speaking of breakfast, there's a free buffet at the Nobu Restaurant for guests from 6:00AM to 10:00AM.

There's a wide assortment of breakfast goodies. There's bacon, sausages, bread, cereals, fruits, pancakes, French toast, and many more. There's also Pinoy breakfast favorites like taho and pan de sal!


Rate starts at PHP 9,300 per night (room only). Check room rates and other hotel stay packages here


There is complimentary WiFi internet access in rooms and within City of Dreams Manila.

I tried the free internet connection, with Speedtest result averaging around 100Mbps.
