Spiral back into love

Run away from city life and treat your loved one to a romantic staycation with a picturesque backdrop of the bay and its glorious sunset. Experience love to its fullest as you enjoy a sumptuous breakfast for two at Spiral, a 30-minute Foot Reflexology for two at Nail Artisan, and a special discount offer from Vietura by Zen Institute. 

As the moon rises over the bay, spoil your loved one to the gastronomic pleasures presented by Spiral’s 21 delectable offerings, including French oysters and poached salmon roulade with honey mustard sauce at the French Stove, artisanal cheeses and Coeur de Neufchatel station at L’Épicerie, sea bass and lamb chops teppanyaki at the Japanese atelier, various textures of chocolate at La Patisserie, and more. As the saying goes, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.

As the sun sets, love rises

For an extra air of intimacy, wine and dine amidst Sofitel’s iconic poolside landscape as you take in the stunning panoramic view of Manila Bay at dusk.
