"What to do? What to do?"... This would definitely be the simplest question one would ask during a staycation.

A few weekends ago, my friend and I went on over down south to experience a little breather. We stayed on over at Bellevue Hotel in Alabang (click) .

To answer the question on "What to do?"... I listed down the stuff that one could do while staying at The Bellevue. With the exception of swimming and relaxing and the other stuff I took note of in my previous post, I wrote down a few things we were able to do. Think of it as a cheat sheet. Make good use of it!! 

1) Abuse the Signature Club's Perks
Located on the 21st floor of the tower wing, the Bellevue Signature Club doesn't disappoint. In case you are staying in a normal room, you could actually inquire and pay an additional amount to let you enjoy the club perks. Believe me, sulit! (If I am not mistaken, if at a tower room, add 1000Php but if at the main hotel add 1500Php.. best to check with them to be sure...)
It has a loooot of comfortable couches and high def television mounted all over the place. Chill! You get to have access to their all day soda, coffee, tea service. They also have some snacks to accompany you in case you get the munchies.
Some pica-pica, they also have some cookies and what not.
If you are up for peace and quiet, you could also order from any of their in house restaurant and have it serve right there and then. 
Mixing business and leisure? Make sure to use their conference room. Its free to use everyday for an hour.
and for those who would need some computer loving, you can also use their computers for an hour. They got a printer and copier machine just in case. (but they got great wifi coverage and speed)
Come 6pm, head on over because they serve some drinks and snacks (aka pwede ng pang dinner!).
They have a small bar where you could get a few drinks and cocktails. TIP: Get "jiggy with it" on their cocktail hour as its on the house! Which brings me to number 2.
2) Go to the Club Room come 6pm!
For this cocktail hour, they got a lot to offer. Believe me when I say, I was impressed.

Wowed because the cost to quality ratio was definitely making me happy!!!
For "snacks", this is already good for dinner! As what my friend said "I need some rice!"
Yeah.. snacks...cheese...salad..fruits.. bread..pastries...
 Some potato croquettes
Beef something.. definitely tender, juicy and yummy!
and yeah they also serve some sweet stuff!

and unlimited drinks. You could ask the guys to make you some cocktails. As long as they have the ingredients, they could definitely make it for you!
Sodas, beer, white and red wine, vodka, johnny walker, bacardi, jim beam... and a lot more!
and of course my personal favorite.. some ginger ale.
(they replenish the stocks instantaneously!!! so get get get!)
Needless to say, this wasn't my plate because mine was pretty much messed up. 
(sobrang pinuno ang plate LOL!)
tea, mimosa, wine, ginger ale, mango juice, and some dessert.

and of course, as I said you could pick your own poison.
3) You could have your breakfast in peace in the Club Room.
Albeit the selection here aren't that a lot compared to Cafe D' Asie, the privacy and the personalized service is definitely a plus!
Salad, yoghurt, muesli, mixed fruits, cereals, juices.
Yeah, they get some bacon for you!
 and some baked salmon puff. You could also ask them to make you some pancakes, waffles, french toasts and egg.
4) Make use of the private gym!
Hairy legsss ewwww~!
Compared to their other gym, this has a more bright and modern feel. Kinda reminds me of my trip to Thailand (click).
 Weights galore.
 Yeah, I bike like that! ... Don't forget to bring your own earphones so you could watch cable tv while doing your stuff. Forgot them, no problem, use the wall mounted tv to watch your favorite show.
and yes, they have a private steam room just for you.
"Shhhhhhh" Because I like it hot.
5) Get a well deserve massage!

The Bellevue recently opened a spa on their 3rd floor tower wing. It opens around 1pm and last call is around 10pm.

The rates are actually affordable. You could choose to have the massage in your room or do it in their private rooms.
You can get a facial too!
They have private rooms and couple rooms which are first come first serve at no additional cost.

and yes they have an indoor heated jacuzzi!!!!! so believe me when I say.. YAHOOOOOO!!!!
They also have a sauna if you want to use it.

Service was awesome. The rates are quite competitive. Although not yet at par with other hotel spas, this could be a competitor in a few months time and with a little more training.
Needless to say, I was pretty much impressed with the stuff I was able to do in Bellevue. My friend and I were able to relax. She got a well deserve massage and I was able to eat and drink to my heart's tummy's content.

Definitely worth coming back to and would be lovely. If only there was an upcoming long weekend so I could stay longer than an overnight. Bang for buck! Definitely a great hotel experience down south. 

Wasn't able to stay and try out the Vue Bar,
but I heard its a nice place to chill for an after dinner session, as
they have live performers on stage.
