Selah Garden Hotel is located right in the heart of Pasay City and is just a few meters away from EDSA and the Mall of Asia. With its strategic location, Selah is the ideal place to stay if you just want to relax and unwind with the different stresses of life.
With today’s unlimited problems and all that shenanigans, all we want to do is to escape, right? So here you go, this is my five reasons why Selah Garden Hotel should be your second home:
1.) This is an oasis amidst a bustling city
Selah is one unusual hotel. Unusual in a way where it offers services and amenities that no other hotel has offered before. With that said, I would be indulging you in activities that can only be experienced in Selah.
Their pool is child-friendly. It only has a maximum height of 4 feet down to 1 foot (for toddlers) for them to experience the water as well. There is only a covered portion which can reach up to 10 feet for guests who want to learn how to scuba dive.
The food ranges from Filipino to Western dishes that catches your soul. As Selah Garden Hotel’s Tabla Restaurant focuses on giving its guests wellness, they also offer organic and fresh fruit juices and detox drinks perfect for the health-conscious. How cool, right? They have offered us tamarind juice, cucumber juice, and lemon fruit juice.
Selah also promotes a personable approach between its staff and its guests. It will make you more relaxed its because you are just talking to your friends. The staffs are very friendly and they attend to your requests in no time. Its relaxing ambiance also adds up to your whole experience in Selah. Everything is just light to the eye and the earthy colors of the hotel make it more than just the need to relax.
The location of Selah is also very accessible as it is just near EDSA and from there, you can go to near establishments such as the SM Mall of Asia complex.
2.) Extreme activities at its best
Have you ever experienced doing extreme activities inside the edifices of a hotel? Selah Garden Hotel is the answer. There are two notable things that should be done when “you are home.”
First, you should try their rope activities, or as I term it, the “team building activities.” Here, your strength and endurance would be tested. No exercise needed as you will be stretched literally. But it is so much fun because you are doing it inside a hotel. Would you imagine?
This 8 to 9-course rope facility inside Selah Garden Hotel is one of its kind in the City. It is so far the only hotel I have visited with such facilities. It is so much fun that we want to try it the second time around. As it is my second time visiting Selah, it is like everything is new when I experienced zip lining and doing all the activities again.
The rate for the rope activities is PhP 750 and PhP 375 for checked-in guests.
3.) Scuba diving lessons right in the middle of the City
Scuba diving right in the middle of the city? Why not! Selah Garden Hotel offers just that! In partnership with RAID Philippines, Selah offers Scuba diving lessons for beginners. Ask the Hotel Staff to reserve your appointment in advance to avail of this service. Ask them about the rates for the lessons as well.
4.) Relax, relax, relax…
Spa by Selah
Relaxation is the keyword. Selah is the place to be. There are various facilities inside the hotel that are synonymous with ‘relaxation.’ One of which is the Spa by Selah. This in-house concessionaire spa facility is only by appointment and prior reservations must be made before checking if you want to avail of their services.
In addition, they also have a meditation area, perfect for ones who want to find peace with their selves. Being close to nature, Selah Garden Hotel also promotes being one with nature in preserving it through their vertical garden installations spread around the hotel. (Spa classes every Sat morning for checked in guests)
Swing Chair and Gazebo
The swing chair and the gazebo are also two of those facilities which you can enjoy while staying in Selah. You can just chill, surf the internet, or think things over. You can also chill by the pool and look for fish surrounding the gazebo!
5.) Spacious and minimalist room designs
