At last! After 10 months in business exile from Davao due to the pandemic, I was able to visit the city for my unit’s recruitment and sales roadshow. And since it is my first long trip after months of work-from-home only dealings, I made it imperative to stay in the city’s newest hotel plus a 3-day trip to Governor Generoso.
LEISURE: Where The Davao Gulf And The Pacific Ocean Meet
Due to matrimonial considerations, this trip started with the leisurely part. Governor Generoso, Davao Oriental is a 4-hour drive from Davao city. It is famous for Cape San Agustin. Reaching the trio lighthouses was literally reaching the terminus of the Philippine road. The view from the top though was truly an emancipating experience for my long-quarantined senses. A refreshing prelude before the meetings in the city.
BUSINESS: Where Davao’s Latest Hotel Amenities And Heartfelt Hospitality Meet
Acacia Hotel Davao was my only preference for this trip. Apart from its 11 event spaces, I was thrilled to do my intimate meetings about finance at the exclusive club lounge on the 10th floor. Most importantly, its location along JP Laurel is easily accessible for my recruits and prospect owners to meet me.
What made a mark for a recommendation from this stay though was the thoughtfulness of the staff.
As soon as I opened the car trunk to prepare the bags for check-in, the guard at the basement parking, who was carefully directing an entrant car, asked me if I would like to request a bell service staff. This appears to be usual in a hotel but that initiative was irresistibly comforting for someone who came from a 4-hour drive, with luggage for four to be unloaded. A few minutes after, the bellhop arrived with a luggage cart.
The staff was indeed pampering. We requested the breakfast meals the next morning to be served in-room for my mom, sister, and Jasmine, and my little dapper, who chose to stay in bed and rest more. They delivered it instantly without any charges. These were just some of the stories of heartfelt solace that would make you feel that they all seem ready to assist you in Acacia and at that, they mean doing it sincerely!
And oh! I just simply love the sizing of their bath robes. hakhak It fits just right. You know what I mean! (versus the baggy, mascot-suit-like ones)
Real, Than Reel Meetings
The post-vax business dealings might not swiftly resume to the office. Thus, a hotel for both business and leisurely use is indeed a significant preference for scheduled work trips. You may have mastered creating new businesses through virtual meetings for how many months, but do not ever forget that selling has its “personal” component. Visiting both your prospects and existing partners is knowing their needs better, simplifying business negotiations, cultivating the relationship, and improving your well-being.
