Oakwood Premier Joy~Nostalg Center was my first staycation hotel this 2016 or in my 24 years of existence for that matter. It is a serviced apartment located in Ortigas Center, Pasig City, Philippines, with 229 units ranging from 41sqm to 185sqm.
According to my buddy Merriam-Webster, staycation is defined as “a vacation spent at home or nearby”. The reason why I took a staycation here is because they were having a Studio Executive for 2 with Buffet Breakfast promo in Deal Grocer for only PHP 5,800. I know it is still not a budget price but it was such a steal that I had to take advantage of it.
Hallway with abstract murals before entering the room
The first thing you will see when you open the door to your room is the fully-equipped kitchen with microwave and convention oven, vitroceramic cook top, refrigerator, toaster, rice cooker, crockery
coffee maker, thermos, cooking utensils
Next to the kitchen is the couch area.
The restaurant menu and spa offers are found on the table of the couch area.
Next to the couch area is the bed.
The bed is in between two bedside tables where the telephone, notepad, and speaker dock are placed. I had a good night’s rest because of the comfortable bed and pillows!
Across the bed are the home entertainment system with multi-channel cable TV and the work area.
I was amazed at the room’s interior because every single space is cleverly occupied. Here is a proof where the work area and the washer/ dryer are squeezed in a little corner of the room.

A city view awaits when you open the curtains.

The electronic safe and two bathrobes are provided inside the walk-in closet.
The bathroom has a TV which may help ease boredom while doing number 2 haha.
Rain shower and in-shower steam
Shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, body lotion, hand soap
The Fitness Center by Oakwood
My favorite workout is cardio so I spent half an hour on this treadmill.
You can view the swimming pool area from the glass walls of the gym.
The swimming pool features underwater music and is connected to a jacuzzi at one end. I loved the glistening lights on the ceiling!
Pool lounge benches
The posh interior of The Nostalgia Dining Lounge
The idea of a staycation hotel did not really fascinate me at first because I treat hotels merely as a place to sleep in, and I also prefer being on the go. But after experiencing a luxurious relaxation at Oakwood Premier Joy~Nostalg Center, I have been considering going back or taking a staycation again! 🙂
