The Holy Week is a special time for Filipinos. For devout Catholics, it’s a longstanding tradition to take part in
different rites and rituals that commemorate one’s faith. While for others, the extended break is always a good
opportunity to slow down from the hustle and bustle of daily life, reflect, and relax with loved ones. Either way
people choose to spend their vacation, it’s good to know that there are awesome places – within or just a few
hours away from metro – where one can go to for some quick (or lengthy!) respite.
For those who want an easy but equally memorable escape this Holy Week, here’s a round-up of the best
accommodations that won’t require a plane ticket nor a long drive.
Apo View Hotel
Davaoeños need not go far just to enjoy the long break. Situated in the heart of the city, the Apo View Hotel offers
guests with modern accommodations and luxurious service that has since been the hallmark of the heritage hotel.
Dubbed as the second oldest hotel in the country, Apo View Hotel has maintained its grandeur and continues to be
a primer choice for the most discerning staycationers.
This summer, Apo View Hotel offers promos that make it much more irresistible to overlook. These include a 50%
off promo on all its Superior and Deluxe rooms with breakfast buffet which runs until May 30, 2019. Meanwhile, its
Weekend Getaway promo offers Superior and Deluxe Rooms with breakfast buffet at 50% year-round.
Las Casas Filipinas De Acuzar
For those who don’t mind a couple of hours’ worth of driving, a gem of a resort lies 125km northwest of Manila in
Bagac, Bataan. More than just a Filipino heritage site to behold, Las Casas Fipinas De Acuzar is a world-class resort
that pays homage to the grandeur of Spanish-Filipino architecture amidst the backdrop of a sprawling beach and a
grandiose natural landscape.
Las Casas takes pride in being the only Philippine hotel to have received several international acclaims which

Destination in 2017, and being included in Conde Nast Johansens Luxury Global Collection and Peninsula Hotels
