One Weekend at Seda Abreeza Davao
A comfy room with top class facilities; this was the perfect hotel to spend my weekend in Davao. It was my fourth time to visit Davao City but it was my first time to visit alone. I decided to go on staycation instead since I didn’t plan to get around the city. A smart and stylish hotel that is conveniently located in the shopping and restaurant area of Davao city, I picked to stay in Seda Abreeza Davao.
Seda Abreeza Davao caters to both business and leisure travellers. It is an urban lifestyle hotel that offers modern accommodation rooms. The hotel provides comfort and convenience through its amenities and services. It has an array of wonderful facilities to offer guest a more pleasant stay in Davao City. Located just across Abreeza Mall, it has a great location because of its accessibility to shopping malls, restaurants and tourist attractions.
Reaching the hotel was easy. From airport, it took me about half an hour. But if I take a private car or taxi, it’ll just be an easy 20-minute drive. I arrived at Seda Abreeza around 8:00 AM. It was way too early for check in time. Because I haven’t had a proper sleep yet, I asked the front desk if I could check in ahead. Luckily I was able to. I was glad that they allowed me to check in to my room. Although I just had to wait for an hour or less for my room to be ready. But that was absolutely okay.

My room was a Deluxe Room. The room was air-conditioned and it has a private bathroom. The room was spacious and comes with a king bed. The bathroom was clean and provided with complete bathroom amenities. A hair dryer is also available.
I like the interior with earth tones giving warmth and relaxing ambiance. It was comfortable, which gave me more reason to stay inside. The entire room was clean and tidy, as well.

The Deluxe Room was equipped with up to date amenities such as 40-inch LED HDTV with cable channels, media panel with HDMI, USB and audio-visual connectivity, IDD phone with iPod dock, coffee and tea making facilities, mini-bar and in-room safe.
I went to my bed around 10:00 AM and called it a night or whatever time of the day it was. I slept the entire day and I woke up when it was already nearing nighttime. It was a staycation so sleeping is actually my main activity.

Evening Cocktails at the Club Lounge
Seda Abreeza’s Club Lounge is located at the 11th floor. It provides exclusive access to some enjoyable benefits and premium service. The lounge is open from morning till late evening serving daily breakfast, afternoon tea and evening cocktails. I was glad to have an access to experience the evening cocktails on my second night.
A variety of beverages, cocktails, beer and sodas were served during that time. Although it would be nicer to have some cocktails or beers, I settled having a couple of glasses of juice. The lounge also has some snacks, cakes and desserts. It’s all for free for guests who have access to the lounge. Guests can grab as much as they like as long as it is consumed inside the lounge. I loved the cakes, which I enjoyed together with my cucumber juice.
