The Selah Garden Hotel—your laid-back boutique hotel amidst the busy city

If you’re looking for a nice and laid back hotel in Pasay then The Selah Garden Hotel is the right one for you!

I’m fond of staycations at hotels around the metro that’s why when Marge invited me and my blogger friends to a garden hotel in Pasay, I didn’t think twice.

I thought it would be just-another-hotel-experience. Little did I know that it has something that I haven’t seen and experienced before.

Expectation vs. Reality

My expectations about most hotels are generic and average. As long as the hotel has comfortable rooms, delicious food, and good service, I’m okay with it. But upon arriving at The Selah Garden Hotel, I was quite surprised. Never mind the inconvenience I experienced on my way to the location. Marge, Chiki and Jerny were sitting on a rattan chair by the pool, waiting for us while digging in the welcome food and drinks.The reality was beyond my expectations—it was a full-package staycation!


Why and How?

Let’s get started with the staff. They are all accommodating and friendly. Although most of them are male, they made sure they attended to all of our needs.

The Selah Garden Hotel offers single room, twin-bed room, like the room given to me and my friend, Pancake.

We went on a tour around the hotel and checked out other posh rooms that offer relaxation. Welcome drinks sit waiting to greet the guests.

Each room has an air-conditioning unit, complimentary WiFi access, a safety deposit box, TV with cable, complimentary bottled water, hot and cold shower, and refrigerator. The hotel has 24-hour room service. Guests can also request for laundry service.



Not only will the hotel provide you with a comfortable stay. They will also make sure that you will have a cool experience. And when I say cool, they will really keep you cool. The hotel has an infinity pool located at the center of it.

They also offer spa services to ensure that you will feel rejuvenated. Unfortunately, their spa was unavailable during out stay, as they were still looking for a new staff.



What Else?
It was a first for me to go to a hotel that offers scuba diving certification. We were given the chance to try basic course on scuba diving in the swimming which is 10 ft. high.

We’re really paying fully attention 🙂

Yep. These are my friends and our super kind and skillful instructor Christopher. They’re ready! Excited smile, guys!

Indoor activities

For those who are looking for a physical activity, wall climbing is perfect for you!

Yep, this is us, enjoying the amenities!

Aside from wall climbing, other indoor activities you can enjoy are zip line (which I tried for the first time), crossing the hanging bridge, and rappelling. All of these are safe for everyone, so even children can have fun. They have complete gears and equipment to ensure guests’ safety. Personnel are also hands-on. They even took photos our photos while enjoying the activities.


The 83-room boutique hotel is both pocket- and eco-friendly. The Selah Garden Hotel has small plants inside. It also has wood accents in the interior. All areas are clean and well-maintained.

Bonus experience

It was indeed special for me to spend time and chat with the hotel managers themselves over a sumptuous dinner. All the people that night were so nice that we even got the chance to get to know one another. We talked about a wide range of topics—from blogging, hotels, and travel, to personal experiences that we laughed about out loud.
