Pan Pacific Hotel's Take on Fun Lounging with the Breath-taking Manila Bay Sunset View

Still in pristine condition after servicing clients for over 17 glory years in the hospitality business, Pan Pacific makes after work hours even more relaxing and fun.  Last Feb. 13, a preempt to Valentines day, my co-travel bloggers had a get together at the Sunset Lounge. It's Pan Pacific Hotel's new al fresco venue which was launched November of last year.

Let me describe that experience in 3 F words - field of vision, food and fun!

Nestled at the 7th floor, the open deck highlights an encompassing view of the surrounding Malate and of course the Manila Bay.  On the same floor is where you can find the pool and the venue hall for gatherings.

Aside from the magnifique view of sunset, you get to relax on charming chairs swathed around the area.

We came just in time for the sunset and what perfect way to watch the sun go down than with the hotel's freshly brewed coffee.

The Sunset Lounge boasts of a menu that really stands out from the rest of the cafes and resto in Malate.  Not only that it's affordable, but the distinct Filipino palate was thought off, thus, not only their foreign VIP guests notice, but local clients came to whet their appetite with the best that Pan Pacific chefs can offer.

Well, let me just put an emphasis into this, the hotel's General Manager, Richard Masellin, prompted us not to pass on the Crunchy Sisig as it was his personal favorite.  What do you know, now it's m fave, next to Aling Lucing's of Pampanga.  It's better eaten as a filling for Taco, or you can order a cup of rice to go with it, though I don't think it's part of the menu here.  But I'm sure the staff would accommodate whatever that fancy your discriminating taste.

Here is the Sunset Lounge Menu:

Reuben Quesadillas

Pacific Chicken Nachos

On the left, Bangus Spring Roll, on the right, Buffalo Wings and chicken Drumlets


On the left, Sisig for the Tacos, on the right, Tokwa't Baboy

All of these and many more are included in the menu.

So to push my point, food plus field of view equates fun!  Especially if the experience is shared with friends and colleagues.
