It was timely when I won a staycation GC at Seda Hotel Nuvali last June during Whole Mom Ph's launch.   We were supposed to book for an overnight stay (originally for two) in a hotel within Metro Manila to celebrate our anniversary, but it turned out that the universe didn't want me to spend for the hotel, so I got the Seda Hotel Nuvali staycation GCs as my raffle prize.  For that I'm grateful.

Though anniversaries should be celebrated by the couples alone (which we've been doing so since time immemorial,) we brought the kids with us (I know right? hehe!) because it will be the first time for them to explore Nuvali.  I thought we could celebrate again after that fun weekend.

It took us an hour and a half to get there from Manila, but the trip was just too worth it especially after being told that our room was upgraded from De Luxe, to Premier Room!  Double blessing indeed, thank you Lord!  The surprise didn't stop there loves because, when we entered our assigned room, this romantic set-up greeted us!

We love their surprise romantic set up of the room.

This is just wow, they even printed our photos!

Rose petals scattered beautifully on the bed in every corner of our room.
The kids got kilig and had their own version of our sweety pose.
Kuya Dandre styled this one.
Isn't this thoughtful greeting mini-cake awesome?  Thanks Seda Nuvali!

We were just plain speechless and touched by this thoughtful gesture by the hotel management.  Excellent and just a WOW customer experience right there!  Funny pa, the two kids were asking us to pose for the camera and kiss each other.  Grabe, these young men were teasing us!  I hope that while they were teasing us and feeling the love in the air, may they be reminded of that very moment, so that they will also learn to love the way their parents do.

Our family was also treated to a sumptuous Barbeque Buffet at Misto Restaurant located at the ground floor where an acoustic duo was playing.  Suddenly, I missed playing music with Macky (that's where our love story began actually, music).  The lady who was singing was really pretty and nice.  Wes was crushing on her I guess because my little one couldn't stop staring and winking at her.  Hahaha!  He was so cute.. he knows how to spot a fine pretty lady.  We devoured these for our wonderful dinner:
Pork BBQs and chicken skewers.
My favorite Tilapia.
Pork fish for meat lovers.
Chicken for a healthier choice of meat.
Salad for those on a diet or simply want to start their meal healthily.
For the sweet tooth like me, here's our spread of desserts.
The three of us having a glass of chocolate mousse.
The anniversary surprise just wouldn't stop loves!  Macky and I were treated to a whole body massage at their spa, located at the 2nd floor of the hotel (where the gym is also located.)  The massage therapists did a great job, one of the best massages we've had.  I think I dozed off towards the end of the massage.

Their massage rooms are clean and facilities are complete.  The therapists were courteous and surely knew what relaxation means for their customers.  We had a pleasant massage experience.  If we were to pay for the service, we'd be glad to indulge because it was really worth it.  The fitness center is open from 6:00 am til 10:00 pm.  You may opt to have a room service for the massage, whichever way you're comfortable.
Hot towel on a bamboo tray.
Single massage bed.  We used the couple's room.
Clean restroom in the spa.
Their gym is haven for health buffs (which hopefully I could be SOON) because they have equipment suited to those looking for cardio and muscle toning activities.  
Complete gym facilities: treadmill, stationery bikes and more.
Weight-lifting equipment for muscle toning or building.
Dumbells: pick your weight!
We obviously had a good night's sleep.   Talk about soft pillows, clean and white linens that embraced us during our slumber.  Who wouldn't sleep soundly (like snore levelz, wasn't talking about myself ha!)

For guests staying at the De Luxe room, they may have their buffet breakfast at the Misto Restaurant located at the ground floor of the hotel near the pool area.
Each of our family's hotel staycation is ne complete without a dip in the swimming pool.  Seda Hotel Nuvali's Lakeside pool is one of the nicest hotel pools we've plunged in.  Adult and Kid's pools are available to be enjoyed by the family.

While watching the kids alternately, we enjoyed our orange and cranberry juice, pastries and fruits still available for breakfast, by the poolside.
All my faves in one plate.  French pastries and grapes!  Yummy!
Before finally checking out, we managed to check other facilities in the hotel.  Right outside Misto Restaurant, also near the pool, is a play room for kids.  
Mini-slide and cushioned table and chairs available inside the playroom.
X-Box with Kinect is also available

The hotel also has an e-lounge with Mac computers.  Wifi is available so guests could check their emails or Facebook accounts anytime OR just simply play with the built-in camera like these guys:
Nguso kung nguso... when I came closer to check what he's busy with.....
Ito pala yun...
 The lobby is spacious, well-lit, and artistically and tastefully designed with pieces from Kenneth Cobonpue, Ann Pamintuan, and Paco Guerrero.
