The Midas’ Touch

It’s good to be touched by Midas.

I didn’t turn to gold, though. But the minute I entered the luxurious lobby of the Midas Hotel and Casino in Pasay City, Manila, I felt “princessy.”

Well, if you were in my place, and you suddenly had the chance to stay all alone at one of the best hotels in Manila, you’d feel the same.

My experience in Midas’ was actually unplanned. It was last December, when I attended a Christmas dinner party and didn’t want to go home in the wee hours of the morning. So I booked at and found a good offer at Midas.

I was supposed to be here with a friend but she ended up going home. Good thing then because I had the room all to myself.

The impeccable interiors plus the inviting hue of each room imposes a “get-some-sleep-now” sense, which I was happy to indulge in. Because I was so overly tired and overwhelmed by the Christmas rush, I gave in to my desire to sleep right after getting inside my given room. But not before I snapped pictures of my temporary private space.

At the lobby, I was instantly taken by the interplay of orange, green, white and silver colors. Equally grand is the ginger bread village displayed at the center of it all.

The sad thing about my experience at Midas is that it was so short. An overnight stay is not enough for me to savor that exquisite feeling. Plus, I suppose, I missed my mom. Next visit, I will definitely drag her here.
