Azumi Boutique Hotel in Alabang–your mini resort for your staycation in the city

Few weeks ago was our staycation adventure and this time we had an overnight stay at our Southern turf here in Alabang. I noticed that there are many hotels now appearing in Alabang and we’re excited to try one and have a nice staycation 30 minutes away from our home. We love to stay in a hotel when there are lots of malls and restaurants standing around it, but for our experience here in Azumi Boutique Hotel in Alabang, its quite different, instead of going to the mall, we just stayed indoors and inside the Azumi room just to relax and do more family activities.
