Dandi Galvez - The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - You should spend more time outdoors. Have a round of golf. Try out wakeboarding. Bike around paved streets and rough dirt trails as you feel the cool wind against your skin in the sweltering heat. It’s time you get out more and have fun — you can even take your friends or family with you. It’s time to take your summer vacation plans to the next level. It’s about time you plan a holiday vacation at Microtel South Forbes.

The newly opened Microtel South Forbes in Cavite is perfectly suited for casual vacationers who just want to escape the city and have a little bit of fun along the way. Known famously for its no-frills approach, obsessively clean rooms, orthopedic mattresses, and highly trained staff of hospitality professionals, the hotel finds itself at another perfect location which satisfies company locators, corporate accounts, and people who want to indulge in leisure activities and entertainment.

“We are positive with this property because we have the right product, which is the Microtel brand,” says resident manager Marinelle Braña. “We have the right partners, Umenoya and Cathay Land.”

Japanese restaurant Umenoya is Microtel’s in-house dining facility located right beside the lobby. It’s no coincidence that the nearby Laguna Technopark, populated by mostly Japanese businesspeople, is the core market for the restaurant. However, guests of all kinds can enjoy the deliciously authentic Japanese cuisine every day. And with a planned expansion branch nearby in the immediate future, Umenoya can adequately serve all kinds of guests from the hotel and beyond.

Having the right product and partners is made perfect by being in the right place. Cathay Land is where Microtel sits and is a treasure trove of golf courses, clubhouses, restaurants and retail shopping establishments.

Braña adds, “We are accessible to bike trails. The area is mountain- and road bike-friendly.” Its kilometers of winding concrete roads and hidden bike trails are perfect for road or mountain bike enthusiasts to explore; and as with its accessibility to the Technopark for the corporate Japanese market, Microtel is also near Nuvali where summer leisure activities are given a step up with watersports, biking, and running facilities.

Guests of Microtel get discounted rates at the nearby South Forbes driving range as well as free scheduled shuttle service to Nuvali, Technopark, golf courses, clubhouses, and nearby churches. Other areas farther out require a minimal fee.

Corporate accounts or clients who need a venue for weddings receptions, seminars, birthday parties, conventions and other social functions can inquire about Microtel’s function room which can hold up to 100 people.

Rounding out the complete Microtel experience are its people. “We have the right people,” continues Braña. “Our staff is equipped with the right customer service and training in international standards. I believe that is what’s positive about Microtel South Forbes and we are positive in duplicating the success that we have had in other properties that cater to locators such as in Batangas and Cavite.”

Fully Filipino-owned and operated, Microtel’s claim to be the “same great hotel” anywhere you go speaks volumes about its track record of excellent hospitality echoed in every one of its properties.This is the 12th Microtel to open in the country and represents a new generation for the nation’s fastest-growing hotel chain, acknowledging a brand new kind of Filipino traveler that values leisure, relaxation and an active lifestyle above all else.


Microtel South Forbes is located at South Boulevard, South Forbes Golf City, Barangay Inchikan, Silang, Cavite. Take advantage of its introductory rate of P2,999 net/night until July 31.
