F1 Hotel Manila, the first hotel to open at Bonifacio Global City in Taguig invited a few bloggers to a relaxing and enjoyable weekend staycation last week. It is conveniently located across S&R Membership Shopping Center and St. Luke's Medical Center along 32nd St. A short itinerary was prepared to make sure we enjoy most of the hotel's services, facilities and amenities available to all in-house guests.
The hotel's lobby is located at the 5th floor where guests check-in/check-out. The Premier Lounge is also located at the same floor where we met up with other bloggers for the welcoming remarks.
A mini activity was prepared where kids were given loot bags and goodies as a pre-Halloween treat. A bring me game was also hosted for the kids and bloggers. Some snacks and refreshments were offered while waiting for others to arrive.
Then we headed straight to F- F1's all-day-dining restaurant, located at the 3rd level for their Christmas Buffet Spread. The lunch buffet wasn't as extensive as other hotel buffets I've been to, but it included a few selection of classic Filipino dishes that showcase our exciting and gastronomic local cuisine.

After lunch, we were given our room keys so we can finally settle down and rest for a while.
