A Jazzy Sunday Brunch at The Oakwood Premier Manila

I have to admit, I’ve never been to OAKWOOD PREMIER Manila. I’ve heard of it, but I’ve never set foot inside. Blame it in the probinsyana in me. Ortigas in a whole new zone I have yet to conquer. :P

When RICHIE & RINA posted pretty pictures of their latest staycation, I was BEYOND impressed with the grandeur & beauty of the rooms. It screamed posh! So when The Bossman asked if my family (yes, including the kids!!!) & I wanted to indulge in a Jazzy Sunday Brunch at The Oakroom of Oakwood Premier Manila, I didn’t even ask Kap. I gave my sweet YES to the boss right there & then.

Normally, Sundays are reserved for church & family. Kap & I have an agreement that no one goes out unless we go as a family on Sundays. But since it WAS going to a family brunch (again, YES! with the kids!! <3 ), I didn’t think Kap would mind. I figured we’d go to church in the evening, and all worked out pretty well too, to my delight -and relief. Coz you know, the Head leads, the Neck follows -or so he thinks!. ;P


Jazzy Sunday Brunch


The Oakroom is Oakwood Premier Manila’s signature restaurant, clothed in warm browns and earth tones with views to the city. It offers a fine selection of international cuisine by French Executive Chef Jerome Cartailler who uses natural and the freshest seasonal ingredients to present an excellent range of choices, from Filipino and Asian favorites to gourmet classics and healthy options. The Oakroom has three private rooms that can accommodate six up to 15 persons for dining. It is open 6:00 am to 11:00 pm daily.

Not just a Hotel, Oakwood Premier Joy~Nostalg Center Manila offers luxury apartments equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and world-class amenities to fulfill the modern-day client’s need for space and security in an elegant environment, combined with highly-personalized service, and the comforts and conveniences of home. At Oakwood Premier Manila, serviced living is an important part of the modern lifestyle.


Security is a primary concern in everyday living; thus Oakwood Premier Manila ensures the safety and well-being of its residents with 24-hour security, an advanced electronic lock system, key-operated elevators to floors, closed-circuit television cameras and a secured on-site parking area.


Aside from this beautiful oak-finished Dining Hall, venues for banquets and conferences at Oakwood Premier Manila include two ballrooms with a capacity of up to 200 persons each. They are divisible into smaller meeting venues and together with two other boardrooms, comprise ideal multi-purpose event areas supported by Genesis Business Services.


Can I just say? Oakwood Premier Manila’s Sunday Brunch is PERFECT for people like me who like to wake up late on lazy weekends because their brunch starts at 12 noon, and ends at 3 pm! Like I said, perfect right? No need to rush or set your alarm so you don’t miss the complimentary breakfast while checked in. You can wake up leisurely at your own pace, stretch, and laze around before finally heading down. This time slot is also perfect if you want to attend church first before partaking of the bounty.






In line with the New Orleans theme, The star-spangled banner is prominently placed amidst great american food such as the Oyster Rockefeller (which I had), Key West Seafood (which I also had), and BBQ Baby Back Ribs (which of course I also had!). ;))

Now that the holiday season is just around the corner, what I look forward to the most is the Christmas ham.


And of course, the abundance of cupcakes. It is, after all, what makes for a sweet life! ;)
