Elevating Southern Living…And making you re-think that southern metro hotel booking

Equal parts dream executive living space and ideal staycation destination is what The Ascott Limited has achieved with its sixth property development in the Philippines—Somerset Alabang Manila. The property is Ascott’s first foray into the southern part of Metro Manila and stands as the first international serviced residence in the south.

As is the mark of the company, Somerset Alabang is set in a prime location—within the integrated business and commercial district development of Filinvest City in Alabang, with lifestyle hubs, dining options and wellness parks all encompassed in its periphery.

Inside, generous, elegant spaces are fitted with contemporary interiors that are easy on the eyes and equipped with all the modern conveniences of home.

Stepping foot in any of its 150 apartment units, Somerset Alabang truly blankets you with the feeling of being home, as opposed to merely having the pleasure of staying in a top-shelf spread.

The low down

Somerset Alabang offers a selection of prime apartment choices—studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom serviced residences. As fore mentioned, Ascott did not skimp on space in any of them. Studios go up to 27 square meters; Studio Premier units are 43 sqm; 1-Bedroom Deluxe apartments are up to 65 sqm; the biggest 2-Bedroom Deluxe’s are 95 sqm; while 3-Bedroom Deluxe units are up to 128 sqm.

Apart from residential spaces, Somerset Alabang also has 11 serviced offices for lease that are ready for operation from day one; two function rooms (collapsible into two and three smaller function or meeting rooms, respectively, which can be booked for corporate and social events; and two boardrooms.

The clincher

Price-wise, Somerset Alabang falls in the middle of Airbnb and hotel accommodations with Studio daily rates starting at just PhP5,082 nett (for the month of February). But on practically all other fronts—service, amenities and luxury, Somerset Alabang exponentially ups the ante.

All units go well beyond the conveniences of home with well-equipped kitchens, separate working and living areas, home entertainment systems, stylish bathrooms and broadband internet connection.

And, to allow you to take in the charming quiet and spacious feel of the southern metro, Somerset Alabang apartments have balconies that showcase the cityscape and its soothing pockets of green.

But should you choose to stay indoors, there’s an inviting lap pool, a fully equipped fitness center, a premier restaurant, and the Cubbies Room—the company’s trademark play area for children.

And for good measure, Somerset Alabang also affords its guests what they call the Ascott Host—a service that provides expats and international travelers the heads up on everything they would need to know even before getting to the country. When they check-in to their apartments, the host gives tours of different places guests would need, like the nearest banks, convenience stores, embassies, and all else that would help afford acclimating with utmost comfort and ease.
