A Summer Staycation at Privato Hotel

in at March 12, 2018

In the long span of my blogging life, – almost a decade! – I’ve written about a multitude of things including faith, beauty, fashion, literature, and travel. As I continue to grow, my interest and passion for all things do so too; there’s just so much to explore! Today, we enter uncharted territory having been invited by the lovely people over at Privato Hotel for an overnight stay. There’s always a first for everything!

Privato Hotel 

Privato Hotel is an Italian-inspired lifestyle boutique hotel in Pasig City. Whether you have a weekend staycation or a quick business trip in mind, the facilities will meet your needs…and exceed your expectations! With contemporary features, the design looks simple yet sleek, displaying the perfect balance between comfort and style.

It’s conveniently located close to Kapitolyo, Estancia at Capitol Commons, Ayala Malls the 30th, Shangri-la Plaza Mall, and SM Megamall for shopping trips with the family. You won’t run out of restaurant choices, too. My personal favorite is Korean haven, Sibyullee, at the 30th!

The Suite

I brought my best friend, Hannah, with me. Of course we had to make the most out of the beautiful space and take portraits!

We stayed at a One Bedroom Suite with Kitchen – the biggest from all the available choices. This included a fully functioning kitchen, a dainty dining area, a spacious bathroom with 2 sinks, a living room, a luxurious king-size bed, 2 television sets, and of course, complimentary Wi-Fi! The place was pristine! It was so huge that I’m pretty sure we could have hosted more people in the area. It’s perfect for the family!

The other available rooms are the Executive King, Executive Twin, and the Deluxe Double Queen.


The hotel includes a swimming pool, a gym, and a spa room. We were both treated to a relaxing 1-hour massage available until the wee hours of the morning (2AM) – great for those with a fully booked schedule in the afternoon or those who need extra TLC after a night out. For others who want to stay in and dine, the Piazza Privato, Privato Café, and the Verona Roofdeck – with an amazing view of the city – are also open until the evening. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to try any of the dining spots.


I have nothing but good things to say about our stay. The staff were friendly and courteous answering all our queries with smiles. They sent us unlimited water and tea! I was also so giddy when we entered the room and there was a handwritten note waiting for us. The room was exceptionally clean; my standards for hotels are v. high! The space was so huge that I could, literally, live in it. Thank you for the lovely experience, Privato! We’ll be back! 👋🏻
