Have you ever slept in airports???
In the past year, I have experienced this TWICE! First one was at the Changi International Airport of Singapore, during a layover for Myanmar. I was with Ruth for that trip and we had a break of dawn flight, so we decided to just stay in the airport. Since Changi is easily one of the best airports in the world, it wasn't super difficult, albeit, the experience was actually a fun "story-to-tell".
Fooling around at the empty airport train:
Kept our bags close to us, and occupied these chairs in a closed cafe. When we woke up, there were travellers sipping their morning coffee next to us, haha!
My second one was another red eye flight from Korea on my way back to Manila. I was going around the Incheon International Airport looking for anything to do after having dinner, when I chanced upon their Spa On Air. It's their airport jjimjilbang!! Enjoyed the pools, shower, and resting place before running back to the check-in counter.
Airport Hotel in Manila: Savoy Hotel Manila
I've always wondered how it's like to have Manila as layover, or if you're a traveller or maybe a businessman and just have a quick trip here. Just last week, I went to the launch of a new "Airport Hotel" that's super close to NAIA and found my answer!
A stone's throw away from Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 is the recently opened Savoy Hotel Manila.

The event was festive, and even included a dragon dance and loud beats:

Jazz aka "hotel music" during the program:
Like the innovative hotel, they had an unconventional ribbon cutting by opening a huge gift box instead:
Not only for travellers!
"Savoy Hotel Manila provides the spaces that everyone needs. From businessmen who need a venue for meetings, travelers who want to spend the night beside the airport terminal, to families who want to enjoy staycation together, Savoy Hotel Manila is a perfect venue for a different hotel experience beside NAIA Terminal 3 and within the 24/7 leisure and entertainment complex of Newport City," says Lorenzo Tang, general manager, Savoy Hotel Manila.
Savoy Hotel Manila is a 12-storey hotel within Newport City in Pasay, has 684 rooms from 23 to 27 sqm. You have an option of a basic standard room (Essentials) and comfortable executive suites (The Runway, The Space, and The Deck). So excited to stay here with my family!
Savoy Hotel Manila was designed for people who are constantly on-the-go and understand the value of meaningful pauses. No wonder they also offer themed spaces called The Squares where collaboration, leisure, and business interactions are made more fun.
These are co-working spaces located on several guest floors of the hotel, and are equipped with high-speed Internet connection and electricity ports, as well as books, express checkout counters, and a snack corner. Guests can access this facility round-the-clock, allowing them to find their own spaces for casual group hangouts, intimate chats and meetings, or even relax while reading a book or listening to music.
Savoy Hotel Manila also has three Food and Beverage (F&B) outlets: the Savoy Café where guests can experience buffet dining featuring Asian and Western cuisines; Zabana Bar for lounging over cocktails and drinks; and The Poolside for after-swim chill and indulgence.
The hotel also has the Connect Lounge, a club lounge exclusively for guests staying in the executive suite rooms. The lounge serves as an extension of Savoy Café where club guests can have breakfast and snacks, complete with facilities for work or for relaxation.
For an airport hotel, Savoy Hotel Manila actually exceeds my expectations! If you have a Manila layover or just want a new staycation place, then check them out. They literally have everything that you need, and maybe even more. Room rate starts at Php 3,000+.
