Our SEDA HOTEL experience booked through Traveloka APP

I am a certified traveler and I know that as a traveler you need to have the best accommodation a place could offer. Some of the best hotels are quite expensive that is why I always check where I can save money and have the accommodation that fits my needs and wants.
I usually travel with my kids so the first thing that I check is that the hotel will have a big space for me and my family and a swimming pool. The best deals in hotel accommodation is so easy to check online, thanks to different travel apps that I could easily check out whenever I want and wherever I am. This is my first time to come across Traveloka.com and I am glad that I have found this app, which I used when I booked our Pre-Valentine’s Day staycation.
I was invited during Seda’s VIP Night last 2013 here in Cagayan de Oro and I wasn’t able to check-in for the last 3 years simply because Seda Centrio is one of the most expensive hotels in the city. But I decided to have our staycation at Seda Centrio with my family and I am glad that when I checked Traveloka App they have discounts that I can use right away, they have up to 25% off on hotel accommodation and that is BIG savings.
My kids enjoyed our staycation so much. I chose the CLUB room type with two beds on the 11th floor. As a CLUB and Premier Guest, Seda Centrio offers additional benefits such as: Complimentary pressing of one suit/dress upon arrival per guest per room, turndown service, complimentary use of DVD player (on request) and complimentary late check-out until 2:00 pm, subject to room availability.


We have a small fridge inside the cabinet, so the kids brought along their chocolates and drinks and kept it there. I love that they have a work area, which has a big table, desk lamp, with a comfortable swivel chair to match it with.

The kids enjoyed the big flat screen TV mounted at the wall, they watched Nick Jr as usual at least the TV is big enough for both of them. My daughter is a little princess that wants a clean and beautiful bathroom that fits a queen. She liked it so much that she immediately take a bath without me asking her to do it.


Seda Centrio has 2 swimming pools, 1 kiddie pool and 1 pool for the adults. I loved that they are not connected to each other like most hotels have which I really don’t like. Beside the swimming pool is the gym which can be used by hotel guests for free.


During our stay, we enjoyed the buffet breakfast (which is available 6:00 am to 10:00am at MISTO restaurant), afternoon tea (available from 2:00pm to 4:00pm) and evening cocktail (from 6:00pm to 8:00pm).
If you want to enjoy big discounts in hotel accommodations like me, you should download the Traveloka App in your phone, it is available in Apple users and Androids too.


It’s so easy to use, when you have the Traveloka App already, you can see 6 choices that you can tap: Flights, Hotels, Int’l Flights, Int’l Hotels, Price Alerts and Ongoing Promos.


Tap “Hotels” for bookings. In order to Search for the accommodation that you want, you must enter your Destination, Check-in Date, Duration, Total Guests and the number of Rooms that you need and you will see the available hotels in the area with prices. The prices are final and it includes tax already so you do not have to worry about additional charges when you arrive at your hotel.

Traveloka App will ask you for your contact details and special requests, if there is any, after you choose your hotel and room to stay for the preferred dates.
There are a lot of choices for payment and that is the best part, you don’t have to own a credit card to pay your hotel accommodation (which usually happens in a travel/hotel app). You can pay over the counter (7-11 or MLhuiller which has a lot of branches) or through banks (BPI, BDO, China bank, Landbank and Metrobank). Once done, Traveloka will give you a voucher for your booking, they will send you a copy through your email add and they will also text you in your cellphone number.



When you are about to check-in, the receptionist just needs your valid ID and voucher for your booking. It is so easy to book online and save a lot of money at the same time. Traveloka App is a must-have app in your smart phone. I saved around 23% from the usual room rates for Seda Centrio and that is a lot of money. You can save too, just by downloading the Traveloka App and book through them.

 





Olay Skin Whitening Bar

Another haul from Sample Room are these beauties. You are only allowed to order 3 different products every time in Sample Room. So I ordered these 3 Olay Skin Whitening Bars : one with Vitamin C, one with Papaya and the other one with rose and milk. They are sold in two sizes : 60g (34php) and 90g (46php).

After one week of using Olay Skin Whitening Bar with Vitamin C, I realize that my skin was softer and smoother and whiter. I love the smell and I don’t need to apply and re-apply lotion every minute of the day because it didn’t made my skin dry.

I let my Mom use the Olay Skin Whitening Bar with Papaya so we can compare. She loves papaya soap so I gave it to her. My mom said this soap is reasonably priced, not too expensive and not too cheap. She loved the scent and it was mild according to her compared to the old papaya soaps that she have tried. For her, Olay Skin Whitening Bar with Papaya is a must-try and must-buy for those who loves papaya soap more than anything else.

Last but not the least to make this blog post complete is the Olay Skin Whitening Bar with Rose and Milk. The scent of rose and milk made my husband asked me if I bought a new set of body baths. I usually smell such scents in body baths compared to soap bars. This Olay product is one of the best because it made my skin soft, smooth and sweet smelling all day.

These bar of soaps have different smells so you can choose whichever you like. But I can guarantee you that Olay products are one of the best products you can see in a grocery store that definitely delivers what it claims to be. If you want to try free samples, visit Sample Room PH and sign up. You only have to pay for shipping.

Zenutrients Products you will definitely LOVE

I am a member of SampleRoom PH since 2013 and I enjoyed receiving free samples of different beauty products from different companies. Some are new products which companies are pushing in order to market it and some are old products that needs to be pushed and be re-branded.

I chose to order 3 different products from Zenutrients and these are : Zenutrients Lavender All Around Spahhnitizer, Zenutrients Gugo Strengthening Shampoo & Conditioner and Zenutrients Strawberry Lip Butter.
img_9865The Lavender All Around Spahhnitizer has a great scent because it has a hint of mint or eucalyptus. I could take it anywhere I go and I love it compared to my hand sanitizer that is made of gel because I hate the sticky feeling after application. It makes me feel relaxed and refreshed all day. I highly recommend it to my friends and you can try it too.

The Zenutrients Strawberry Lip Butter is one of the best lip butter I have tried so far. It smells good and tastes good and I love the color that comes with it because it is perfect for my skin tone. This is one of best product Zenutrients has to offer for me. It kept my lips from being dry and chapped throughout the day and I can apply it anywhere and anytime of the day.

The Zenutrients Gugo Strengthening Shampoo and Conditioner is a perfect pair. I like the smell so far and it did a great job in cleansing my hair. It smelled good and it kept my hair shiny and smooth and manageable throughout the day. I recommend this for those who loves herbal and organic products to stay away from chemical-based ones.

These products aren’t pricey compared to other organic products that I used to see in different department and grocery stores.
