Aptly named, you can unwind and take a break from the fast-paced routines of daily life at The Selah Garden Hotel in Pasay City.
This modest but surprisingly popular urban oasis for couples, family or group vacationers guarantees its guests clean, simple yet elegant accommodations with exceptional services and amenities at an affordable price! No wonder there were plenty of guests during the time of our visit.
I referred to the property as modest because of its limited space but that is not to say it is cramped. In fact, The Selah Garden Hotel has 82 boutique rooms, an infinity pool spruced up by an eco-friendly vertical hydroponic garden system, several lounge chairs and a gazebo, a garden for high and low ropes activities, three function rooms, KTV room, a restaurant, and reception lobby with a parking space.

We stayed at the Fantastic Loft on the third floor. The room itself is spacious with separate hot/cold shower room and toilet, dining area, living area, and an upper floor for the double beds and closet. The Fantastic Loft can accommodate up to five people and comes with free wifi access and breakfast for four persons. There is a set of toiletries in the shower room, electric kettle and mini fridge in the kitchen area, and a flat screen tv and safety deposit box. Guests have access free access to the infinity pool and to the spa and high ropes facility for an additional charge. With the room rate of Php 5,100 per night for 4-5 people, it’s really not bad to stay in the Fantastic Loft.
While one can expect a vast open field for team building games and activities, The Selah Garden Hotel managed to strategically design an activity area that incorporates at least 10 activities. Any corporate team can be generously accommodated in this area. The previous group before us composed of 100 people. Can you imagine how fun that was??
If you’re not in a group and just feeling adventurous, you can freely take on challenging activities such as a four-storey wall climb and rappelling, a two-part zip line ride, high ropes course, and scuba diving lessons taught by well-seasoned divers and staff members.
This set of activities cost Php 750 per person. You need to sign a waiver indicating you do not have any health condition/ injury that might hinder/ endanger you while completing the course.
If you worry about falling down, I guarantee you that all the equipment are sturdy, well-inspected and assessed for risk and safety. In addition, the staff who assist are well-trained (and strong!!!).
This was my first OFFICIAL wall climb… I am happy I made it through the top! I highly recommend you try this to challenge your upper body strength and overcome fear of heights!
The said activities make the property ideal for corporate team-building events or a family gathering, say, with a balikbayan friend or relative.
If you like to conserve your energy and just lay down and get pampered, you can enjoy the spa or you can lounge by the infinity pool.
At night, you can enjoy the sing-along karaoke room whilst savouring a plateful of mouthwatering Filipino dishes. It’s indeed a pleasant way to continue bonding with your group or for me a delightful way to cap off any long day.
The Selah Garden Hotel has an ongoing promotion for the use of the KTV room. You can enjoy singing your favorite tunes at Php 6,000 for 15 people. This comes with 2 buckets of beer, a round of iced tea, pancit bihon, french fries, cheese sticks, and peanuts for everyone to share.

During our stay, we tried their signature dishes like Kare-kareng gulay, lechon kawali, ginataang laing, and brownies for dessert. If you ask me how was the food, I can say it’s flavorful and well-prepared. The soup has the right consistency, the meat skin and vegetables have the right crisp. The pork meat is tender. I couldn’t stop eating.
The foodgasm didn’t stop that night. I ate more delectable Filipino dishes the next day at our breakfast. I can say that the dishes truly power up your day. The homecooked Filipino food will fill you and comfort you at the same time. The breakfast buffet selections: omelette bar, chicken ala king, corned beef, sweet and sour pork, fried fish, fried and steam rice, rice noodles, sausages, salted egg, mixed vegetables, hamonado…
While you can eat all the rice you want, there is also a cereal station, a mini salad bar, bread station, and fruits stand to make you feel a little less guilty in case you’ve deviated from your healthy diet.

I enjoyed a weekend break at The Selah Garden Hotel. The challenging activities facilitated by extremely friendly hotel staff, the location, the room where we stayed, the karaoke experience, and the food—all contributed to an ultimate, memorable albeit short getaway. I highly recommend this property to tourists, “balikbayans”, and fellow locals. Here, you are guaranteed to experience true Filipino hospitality, relax, and revitalize without breaking the bank.
