Budget rooms and backpack hostels serve their purpose when doing exploratory traveling, but when it comes to a staycation with family, it’s a good idea to book a room that places you in the lap of luxury: suites, and not just suites, but the best hotel suites for families designed especially for communing and relaxing.

A suite is a hotel room that comes with a living room and dining area, so you can hang out and relax on a rainy weekend with loved ones close at hand. There are some suites that make you feel like a boss and there are some that are perfect for R&R with the family. Here are suite deals in the city that make good venues for those who just want to enjoy a lazy weekend of family time. This list is not ranked.

1| Solaire Resort - Parañaque

Solaire’s Signature Suite features separate living and dining areas, top-of-the-line amenities, including 350-thread count linen and L’Occitane bath accouterments, and a view of Manila Bay. For families looking for hotel suites, Solaire is currently offering a Rainy Day Rendezvous package that includes an overnight stay at a Deluxe or Suite Room, buffet breakfast for two at Fresh International Buffet, 60 minutes of in-room combination massage for two, and a themed Afternoon Tea at Oasis.
