Being quite familiar with the Katipunan scene, I have always been on the look out for new places and joints that would allow me to relive and reacquaint myself to the memorable adventures and experiences I’ve had in this side of Quezon City. Katipunan has its own distinct appeal that makes it a favorite destination of many individuals and students who are just trying to unwind after a grueling day.
Thus, postpandemic I decided to revisit this side of town for a number of reasons—to go back to my favorite restaurants, visit friends and explore new destinations. This is where I got to see the next natural choice for a fun staycation with family or friends.
SotoGrande Hotel along Katipunan Avenue stands out as this cozy new destination that has everything you need in your “city getaway.” It impresses you the moment you enter its grand, sophisticated lobby, greeted by its friendly front desk officers—definitely a preview of a great staycation ahead of you.
Head up to your well-appointed rooms where you can freshen up before going out or just stay, watch some TV and catch up on some much needed sleep. You can choose from the different room categories here, all of which are equipped with features that are sure to guarantee a restful stay—starting with the comfy beds, fluffy pillows and its bathroom for that rejuvenating bath after a long and tiring day.
Getting a little hungry? You don’t even have to go out as SotoGrande Hotel Katipunan offers a sumptuous, appetizing selection of dishes that are sure to satisfy even the most discerning palate. Honestly, the restaurant alone makes this hotel well worth your time as you can easily satisfy your craving for great food and an equally great ambience.
After filling up, head out and rediscover the many treasures this area has to offer. Drive around and visit various places of interest that makes Katipunan a famous destination—from its churches, parks, universities, to the nearby museums.
Once you tire out, you can easily go back to your hotel, go for some quick cardio at the gym (if you haven’t burned all those calories from touring Katipunan), or better yet, take a quick, refreshing dip in the pool. That’s guaranteed to soothe your aching muscles.
Head over again to SotoGrande’s resto for a light early dinner before you cap it off with a cocktail or two with friends at the hotel’s amazing roofdeck. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the beautiful sunset from this vantage point, or you can simply admire the view of the scenic cityscape from the deck.
This roofdeck is such an incredible space to be in—to have that unobstructed, breathtaking 180-degree view of the city! It’s the perfect spot for that romantic date you’ve been planning, or for an intimate party among family and closest friends. The hotel and its staff will be more than just willing to help you achieve that fun, memorable celebration you so deserve.
After a day of non-stop fun and adventure, you can just head over to your room for that restful sleep so you can wake up feeling recharged and ready for another day of adventure. You can actually start with a quick gym session before you check out and get through another day.
Indeed a stay at Sotogrande Hotel Katipunan allows you to take a breather especially after being asked to stay home during the pandemic. It’s a great first staycation spot for friends and families who merely want to have some good time or create new memories.
