Trip to Legazpi!

The Magayon Festival celebration apparently lasts a whole month (April 1-30) which is awesome!

I've been thinking about doing a little bit more traveling and thought of returning to Legazpi, Albay for some rest and relaxation. The last time I was there was a few years ago and it was for business purposes so I didn't get to enjoy the place (at least not as much as I wanted to).

Some of my media contacts suggested I try out the Oriental Legazpi - Albay’s newest luxury hotel (I'm very particular about where I stay when going out of town, you see) enthusing that I will love it there. Even better, it seems that the hotel has some special rates going for accommodations in celebration of the Magayon Festival.

Dubbed as “Magayon sa Oriental,” the special rates that are 50 percent off the hotel’s published rates for all rooms have taken effect starting March 1 and will be implemented until April 30, 2012.

The Magayon sa Oriental room rates for both single and double occupancy are as follows:
  • Php 3,500 for Deluxe
  • Php 4,000 for Deluxe Mayon
  • Php 6,000 for Executive Suite
  • Php 7,000 for Executive Suite Mayon
  • Php 10,000 for Governor’s Suite
These same special rates will also apply to online and traditional travel agents and are inclusive of complimentary round trip airport transfers, in-room coffee and tea selections, replenished bottled water, use of infinity swimming pool, breakfast for two, and high-speed broadband internet service.

They had me at high-speed broadband internet service.

They assured me that the place is very much accessible to the city (but distant enough not to be hassled by the typical urban hustle and bustle) and it is the only hotel in Albay to offer a full view of the legendary Mayon Volcano.

I plan to check it out soon, work permitting. I will make sure to take lots of photos.
