Excellence in design
OH YES, IT'S JOHNNY! - Johnny Litton (The Philippine Star) - June 26, 2014 - 12:00am

There is a seamless integration of design and functionality in architecture, interior design, furniture and home accessories in the two-bedroom deluxe model unit of Botanika Nature Residences. The model unit was previewed recently at an open house held at the Botanika Sales Atrium in Filinvest City, Alabang.

The iconic, low-density, three-tower vertical lush village is the first development under the Exclusive Collection, the “most high-end” category of residential projects, of Filinvest Alabang Inc. (FAI).

Company president and CEO Josephine Gotianun-Yap said Budji Layug+Royal Pineda Design Architects was FAI’s top choice to handle the interior design for the two-bedroom model unit. 

Always in the forefront of functional, top-end design, Budji Layug+Royal Pineda Design Architects utilized a collaborative approach to make the masterpiece, which evoked only positive reactions from the adoring guests.

Architect Royal Pineda and designer Budji Layug also talked about their design inspiration during the event while injecting some tips on condominium space planning, something that proved very informative and useful to clients and prospective buyers of Botanika Nature Residences.

‘Spa-rty’ at Dusit

It is said that behind every great man is a great woman. Encouraging her partner to take risks, to be confident when making important decisions, and feeding his ambitions and drive are just a few of the many things that a woman does to help in assuring the success of a brilliant man. This is true for Dusit Thani Manila’s tireless general manager Alex Willats, who struck gold with his ever stunning and incredibly supportive wife, Claire.

Being a very appreciative and thoughtful husband, Alex (together with a few of his lovely wife’s close friends) surprised Claire with a “Spa-rty,” a day of pampering at Dusit Thani Manila’s own private sanctuary — the Devarana Spa. Devarana, which means “garden in heaven” in Sanskrit, brought truth to its name when it offered pure relaxation and serenity for these deserving ladies who were captivated by the elegance, tranquility and peaceful aura of the spa.

The rejuvenating massages, soothing aromatic baths and beauty treatments are just some of the special offerings of the exceptional Thai spa. These treatments guarantee the clients to leave their worries at the door and experience the comfort that the Devarana Spa at Dusit Thani Manila can provide.

Well done, Alex! Here’s to more relaxing days for Claire and to all the great women behind all us fortunate men!
