Hotel Review: Selah Garden Hotel
An oasis amidst the Bustling City
Your home like no other
Selah Garden Hotel is located right in the heart of Pasay City where you can find a quick escape from all the hustle and bustle. Its strategic location is ideal for guests to find solace in while trying to find a fine place to relax. “Selah,” which means “a place to rest,” gives justice to its name itself. This is your unconventional yet stylish home in the middle of the busy city.
Selah is equipped with 83 well-appointed rooms which can suit almost everyone’s taste, may it be a loft, a bunker bed-type, or just a simple bedroom complete with amenities and that precious WiFi everyone is looking for.
Selah Garden: More than just a hotel
Warning: This is not your typical kind of hotel where it is usually adorned with luxurious chandeliers and equipped with world class furniture. This hotel is also good for groups that are in for an amazing adventure!
With its 7-course team building facility, Selah raises the bar when it comes to recreation. It certainly is a one-of-a-kind service in the hotel.
1) The obstacle course starts off with a wall-climbing challenge where you should be able to get the flag from the uppermost part of the wall;
2) After which, you have to ride in a zip line (yes, a zip line inside the hotel) to get to the next station;
3) Then you will cross over a net bridge (that is quite easy);
4) After, you will have to cross over a rope course;
5 and 6) Upon finishing the rope course, you will pass 2 wooden bridges;
7) And to finish off the course, you will have to rappel your way down and you’re done!
*Full safety equipment (and refreshments) is provided whenever doing the activity. On average, the whole course will take you about 30 – 45 minutes depending on your group’s pacing.*
Home Sweet Home
Selah Garden Hotel is equipped with 83 rooms that would surely capture your senses (and just sleep on that comfy bed all day!)
Ooops! Not just that!
Let’s go SCUBA diving
Selah Garden is so far the hotel I have reviewed that offers SCUBA diving lessons to its guests. In partnership with Dive RAID Philippines, Selah offers a beginner’s course in SCUBA diving. It is also my first time to try this and as you would notice, it is the logo of my blog. So I might as well do it in real life! Yes!
And voila! We were given the apparatus and we immediately took the basic SCUBA lessons. And mind you, Selah is so far the hotel I know that has a 10 feet deep pool for SCUBA enthusiasts and first-timers. Ask the hotel management on how much a course on SCUBA diving in Selah would cost you. Ask them, too, about the open water lessons also catered by the hotel!

Selah also offers complimentary breakfast to its checked-in guests – by the pool! Spell YUM!
That’s a Wrap
Selah Garden Hotel is a hotel which is one of its kind in the Philippines. This is so far the hotel I have reviewed that has a zip line in it (and other teambuilding facilities at that) and a deep-water pool for your SCUBA diving experience. The ambiance of the hotel is very homey as its fixtures and colors are earthy and very light to the eye – in short, relaxing!
Selah Garden Hotel has been recently (and officially) launched last 31 January 2017. What I also love about this hotel is that they fill their spaces with greens, that is, vertical gardening. It gives me a feel that is much closer to nature. The concept of the hotel is also refreshing as the colors are earthy and are pleasing to the eye.
What I just noticed is that the WiFi connectivity is faulty and I sometimes cannot connect to the internet. The staff is also accommodating and knowledgeable about the services and everything about the hotel. I am also amazed that this hotel offers SCUBA Diving lessons, which is one of its kind in the metro. The views from every room are also generous and the spaces are well-defined.
