Here’s another great reason for Metro Manilans to opt for a staycation – the Azure Urban Resort Residences. It is a luxury resort located only about half an hour away from Makati, right at the Bicutan exit of the South Luzon Expressway.  It is on the same area as SM Bicutan shopping complex for your shopping, dining and entertainment convenience. No need to go far to unwind! Experience Azure staycation today.

The Azure luxury resort is a joint project of the Century Properties with Paris Hilton, billionaire heiress of the prestigious Hilton worldwide real estate development conglomerate. It combines the concept of luxury urban living with a beach resort theme.  In fact, there is a man-made beach right in the middle of the complex’s towering buildings whose names are derived from the world’s most popular paradise islands, such as St. Tropez, Santorini, Maldives, Maui, and Rio.

As of this writing, construction is still ongoing.  Although the units are meant to be sold as residential units, you can in fact book a condo rental at one of the finished towers for your Azure staycation.  You can easily book one at airbnb.com. (Use my referral link to get about P780 in travel credits that you can use immediately on your first booking) Reminder, you can’t just walk-in. It is either you know someone who owns a condo unit there or use Airbnb.
