Somewhere along the relaxed and easygoing streets of Alabang sits a tall building with a brightly lit red sign that is almost impossible to ignore.

Located at the heart of the south, Crimson Hotel Filinvest City adds to the neighborhood’s unique charm with its palm trees, picturesque sundowns, and a one-of-a-kind view of the skyscrapers above Southern Manila. From its culinary favorites down to its glamorous rooms, take a look at some of the reasons why you need to pay this southside gem a visit as soon as possible:

1. The views perfectly show you the laid-back day-to-day life of the south

With the constant hustle and bustle of the city, nothing can quite compare to the refreshing feeling of retreating to the gorgeous views of the south. Crimson Hotel Filinvest City prides itself as an “iconic architectural marvel” in southern Manila and it’s not difficult to understand why. Along with the gorgeous skyline, the view from Crimson Hotel features vast, relaxing greenery which makes your room easily feel like home.

2. Their exciting variety of culinary choices are perfect for groups of friends and family

All guests can find a variety of international cuisine to fit their taste at Crimson Hotel Filinvest City’s culinary establishments—there’s something for everybody! You won’t have to worry about wasting time trying to decide and agree on where and what to eat with your friends and family. Make your way to the popular Café 8 to satisfy your thirst for culinary adventure and check out their current featured cuisine during your visit. Drop by The Deck Bar by the poolside for a refreshing iced drink or two. Lastly, you can always head to The Lobby Lounge for classic afternoon tea or romantic after-dinner cocktails to celebrate any and every occasion.

3. Their rooms and suites will leave you wanting to stay another night

Having stayed at several hotels both locally and abroad, I have learned never to underestimate the power of a room that is the perfect mix of luxurious, cozy, and feels just like home. Their creamy-hued guest rooms are the perfect choice to experience their signature “graceful urban oasis.” Of course, there is always the more lavish option to stay at their grand suites that give you the best view of Alabang. Whichever way you decide to customize your staycation accommodation, don’t forget to bask in the comfort of a chill evening indoors perfectly paired with room service.

4. It’s home to bold, striking, locally crafted Filipino artworks and designs

Crimson Hotel Filinvest City is also known to be the home of several striking Filipino artworks crafted by talented local artists. Spread across their gallery, public spaces and function rooms, true Filipino art is constantly highlighted and celebrated by this luxury hotel. The staff of continues to honor the hotel's core commitment to elegance and style too, as they make their rounds dressed to the nines in couture ensembles carefully designed by world-famous Filipino fashion icon Francis Libiran.

5. A gorgeous outdoor pool that overlooks city views

There is no better spot to sit back, relax, and just unwind during your staycation than at the hotel’s breathtaking poolside area located on the 8th floor. Decorated with Dedon nest chairs and plush loungers, it is a picture-perfect spot that guests of all ages will surely enjoy. It almost feels like your own private oasis in the city—just imagine yourself taking a dip in the pool with a view overlooking the city, basking in the serenity of it all. Feel free to sip on your cold drink of choice and munch on some poolside delights for the perfect afternoon activity with your friends and family.

6. The best places to be in the south are just within your reach

Right by the border of the Skyway, Crimson Hotel Filinvest City is conveniently located steps away from trendy shopping malls, unique restaurants, and cafes, and a ton more of activities that you will only find in the south of Manila. Growing up in the south, it has always been exciting to see the newest establishment in town—whether it’s the up-and-coming friendly neighborhood bar, a unique concept restaurant, or the next favorite weekend hangout for people in the area. I never run out of things to look forward to! No matter what new adventure you’re up for, there’s always something new to try, taste, and see in southern Manila, making your stay truly worthwhile.
