Tivoli Garden Residences Staycation Experience

For my long weekend staycation during the Eid al-Adha holiday, I was invited to stay in a studio unit with balcony in the Iris Building of Tivoli Garden Residences.

Here’s a photo essay of my experience.

This is the main lobby. On the 2nd floor is the gym. You won’t really have to use this lobby because every building has their own lobby and you can just ask your taxi driver to drop you off to your desired building.

As you can see there’s no cooking equipments so you won’t be able to cook.

But, there’s a good size refrigerator and microwave oven so you can just buy cooked meals outside and reheat it.

By the way, I saw two “sari-sari” stores inside the complex so you can buy basic necessities there.

For me, the biggest advantage of Tivoli Garden Residences is it is very near the different business districts and entertainment areas. It is ideal not only for staycation but also for those attending business meetings and conferences in Makati.

To show you how near it is, crossing this bridge would bring you already to Makati City
