The West Wing offers spacious residential suites of three to five bedrooms in flat or bi-level.

Aside from the fantastic size, layout, and furnishings of the units, unit owners in the 53-storey luxury residential suites may avail of all the offerings of the hotel, including concierge, security and housekeeping services.
Last September 29, media were invited to an intimate gathering and exclusive viewing at Admiral Baysuites' premiere club. Conceptualized to become “an exclusive club in a condo,” the premiere club amenities of the property complete the grand experience, priming it to become even more coveted. I was impressed with the exclusive club in a condo's two floors of amenities covering a total area of 4,716 square meters.
The VIP lounge and piano bar gives an outstanding view of the Manila Bay. I love the al fresco dining atmosphere that cannot be experienced anywhere else in the world.
Distinctive private amenities of this high-end residential skyscraper include function rooms, art gallery, gaming room, KTV room, mini theater, modern gym, 25-meter lap pools, poker room, billiards room, poolside lounge, spa, juice bar, cigar room, wine cellar, a 5-star hotel, plus luxurious lounges among others.
Admiral Baysuites is geared to become the seat of urban luxury along Roxas Boulevard. It offers a superb lifestyle package that investors will easily recognize. The first five-star boutique hotel in the Philippines will be managed by international hotel operator Accor when it opens in 2016.

And Sto. Tomas, Batangas is fast becoming a real estate hotspot. Its close proximity and easy access to Manila is one of its major advantage. The province is highly accessible from the capital via South Luzon Expressway from Muntinlupa City. Roughly 60 kilometers from Makati City, Sto. Tomas competitively keeps up with the conveniences of the Metro, and still retains a rustic, peaceful charm signature to the Southern brand of living.
The city is just 15 minutes away from Nuvali through the Star Tollway Santo Tomas exit, and a mere 30-minute drive to Tagaytay. It offers the best of both worlds. This is one of the reasons why Sto. Tomas is dubbed as the gateway to the Southern Metro.
Ovialand Inc. brought on its newest flagship project south of the Metro to address traffic, flooding, congestion, and other pressing problems of urban living that beset many families today.
Terrazza de Sto. Tomas, is a 5.8-hectare premier development that is set in the heart of these attractions. Developed by Ovialand Inc., this property aims to provide an exclusive reprieve as well as easy access to the province’s center of activities. The company’s newest P500-million venture in this first-class municipality is close to industrial parks and companies, schools, churches, and medical institutions.
Ovialand, Inc.'s Business Unit Head Fatima Olivares-Vital says, “In Sto. Tomas, the lifestyle starts with the quality of living. Imagine not having to feel nervous every time it rains because of the reliable drainage systems or knowing that you can go home on time to your family because you won’t have to worry about the traffic. This is how you can really enjoy life.”
The activities available within the vicinity also ensure that everyone can find something that will cater to their interest. Beaches, hiking spots, and lifestyle centers are always teeming with activity and are sure to entertain the most outgoing of souls. Terrazza's amenities include a mini football field, a basketball half-court, a multipurpose clubhouse, a swimming pool, and landscaped pocket gardens.
Olivares-Vital gives one last advice for those looking for a different brand of lifestyle, “You have to look for options. Changing your lifestyle means you have to try and solve the problem using new ways. How we live and how we hope to live should not be different things. Think—and live—outside the box.”
