Hot on the heels after our most recent staycation is another one to celebrate my 3-day-long birthday weekend. This time in Vivere Hotel. I cannot stress enough how much the GOppets LOVE luxurious staycations! We have a beautiful & comfortable home which I thank God for every day, but we like adventures & excitement that can only be experienced in staycations & vacations here or abroad. And what better time to get pampered than on one’s birthday, right?
A jewel in southern Metro Manila, Vivere Hotel in Alabang is a towering 31-storey five star deluxe hotel featuring 200 elegantly appointed rooms and suites. Vivere Hotel provides business facilities and recreational amenities for both business and leisure travelers.
We were billeted at the VIVERE GRAND on the 29th floor. It was such a welcome surprise & met with squeals of delight by the kids! <3 This is a GRAND birthday treat indeed! (The hotel facade photo on the left belongs to the bossman)

Vivere Hotel makes sure the guests enjoy their privacy by installing a door to the room proper in every floor. To the right is the main door after coming out of the elevator, which needs an electronic key card before you can go to your designated room. The doors to the private rooms still use old-fashioned keys which I found quaint & lovely! It’s a #TB moment right there! ;)

Our GRAND VIVERE SUITE had 2 floors! With 3 bedrooms & a toilet/bath each. We were king & queen, prince & princesses for a day. The kids wanted to pack up & live here indefinitely! :P
We occupied the room on the ‘ground” floor while the 3 kids had the entire “second” floor to themselves. This is SUCH a treat after camping out in just one room whenever we have staycations. But I have to say, I really missed having the kids close by.
The girls were delighted with the peek-a-boo bathroom & the walk-in closet. Not that they brought enough clothes to use it haha.We just brought enough for the weekend. Nonetheless, they hung their clothes just so they can use the wardrobe. Funny girls!
My babyson was the happiest because 3 bedrooms meant no airbed for him. He actually got his own bed, and his own room this time around! \m/ So telebabad to the max my binata all night long. :|
A fruit platter welcomed us. How thoughtful! Thank you so much Vivere Hotel! <3
I won’t go into details, but lemme just tell you. ALL of us slept like logs that night. The air-conditioning unit was cold & the beds so plush and comfy it was indulgent to just lie there with a happy smile, a contented sigh, and enjoy our suite.
The you-tubers! @_@ After waking up, they just got up to shower & it was right back to bed. Lazy lifestyle for the GOppets, these staycations haha.
In fact every part of the room is so comfy that we can practically nod off right there & then -be it on the bed or on this ultra deluxe couch! :P
Vivere Hotel boasts of a lovely Atrium so that even while indoors, you still get a feel of the outdoors. The morning sun lit it up the way no man-made lighting can. It was a glorious Sunday. PS: No worries about the balcony, there are heavy-duty safety nets installed every 3 or so floors.

A glorious Sunday that called for a sumptuous brunch of bacon, eggs and all things yummy! <3
Breakfast buffet at The Nest is only 790 php net!What a steal!
My happy breakfast plates. The highlight of my breakfast is the oh-so-crunchy bacon & kimchi rice with Beef Bulgogi. Yummers. <3
I’m telling you, Vivere Hotel has the BEST bacon. And a great Korean food selection. That is Kap’s korean plate, and he went for seconds! Also, look at how fat & fluffy their pancakes are! LOVE!
The restaurant was so full of Sunday brunches, but we were able to have an entire secluded cove all to ourselves. It’s at the back of the restaurant near the show pool so it’s hidden. Good thing Kap went around & saw it. It’s like having the 31st floor all to ourselves! <3
Our cove & our beautiful skyline view! May security pa kaming sarili! ;P
What’s happening at Vivere Hotel.
After a heavy brunch, we decided to walk it off a bit & roam the hotel grounds. To get to the LAMA POOL on the 4th floor, you have to go to through parking & enter by the door shown below…
I love seeing the kids joyful. Here is my Lovey skipping with a happy heart! <3

Thank you so much VIVERE HOTEL & ELVIE SANCHEZ-QUIAZON for your hospitality. Vivere Hotel is definitely one of the finer hotels in the South! <3 We loved our suite accommodation, the warmth of your staff, and the scrumptious brunch buffet spread na dapat talagang balik-balikan.
