An Artsy Break at Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences


Nestled at the heart of the Makati Central Business District, the Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences fuses art and comfort, giving birth to a place that engages visitors and viewers in a series of layers of discoveries,
Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences has studio rooms and suites, all of which are designed artistically, remaining true to its inspiration, Pablo Picasso, a world renowned painter and sculptor and the founder of cubism. It is also the same concept that is embodied in the hotel’s façade, function rooms and gym.

In The Picasso, as it is more popularly known, everywhere you look embodies art. This lounge is an example. When I sat here, I felt I was transported inside a painting and became a part of it. 



Our room was a Malaga Studio. We requested for a non-smoking room since we were with my baby. 


The Malaga Studio is equipped with a kitchenette complete with coffee- and tea-making facilities, a microwave, a sink, a mini-fridge and a stove. The Picasso usually hosts long-staying guests, but are also open for an overnight city break, just like what we had.

The room is cozy and modern. It is adorned by pieces of art everywhere I look. There is also an ipod dock where you could play your own music.




The Picasso, as it is more popularly known, is a sanctuary for those who are craving for inspiration. If you are a writer like me, drafting an article on a workspace filled with artistic pieces will definitely amped your imagination. 

See? I can't find an excuse why one will not be inspired with this posh desk.


I personally like a hotel room with a stylish bathroom. 


The rain shower is the best  thing I like about our bathroom at The Picasso. A warm shower is always a soothing and relaxing experience for me. Believe me, I could stay here for an hour, without even noticing how time flies.



Even the bath amenities are housed in artistic boxes. 


The Malaga Studio also has a veranda with a view of Makati's skyscrapers.


We also checked out the gym and here is what we saw en route. What caught my eyes is the wooden door with an image of I'm guessing, Jesus Christ. This is placed on wall towards the hallway.


There's no one in the gym when we arrived. The facilities look new and state-of-the-art. The interiors are designed perfectly! With wood panels and mirrors, indeed, the gym is so modern.



Artworks in different media-from paintings, to sculpture, to projection art can be found at the Art Cabinet, the in-house art gallery at The Picasso. 


The exhibit showcases the works of Bacol, Balcos and Floirendo.


This is my favorite. It awakened the child in me as I remembered our dear Walt Disney favorite, Mickey Mouse.


This piece also caught my attention. Imagine, these are coiled plastic and rattan ensconced in wooden carving. Very playful and colorful.



This one on the other hand is the most intriguing piece I've seen. The top of these cubes looks like a lit CT scan film. 


And here are the other works of art we saw at the Art Cabinet.


So if you want to recharge your creative juices and have a city break at the same time, go to The Picasso. Book a night or simply drop by at their gallery.
