MANILA, Philippines — The newly built Hotel H20, like most other hotels, offers guests pining for a relaxing getaway a quick and well-needed respite without even having to leave the city.
As it is, Hotel H20, which opened only in April last year, already offers a first in the Philippines, with 41 of its rooms having wall-mounted aquariums for your personal indulgence—allowing you to savor the curiously rich marine life, while at the comfort of your room.
While ocean-themed parks offer a view for a limited time and at quite a price at that, guests at Hotel H2O can enjoy such a similar view throughout their whole stay in this urban getaway.
However, the country’s first “ecology” urban resort hotel even offers a bigger “first” as it claims to be the world’s only hotel to be fully painted with the Eco Paradise Bio Sealer, which emits negative ions, according to H2O general manager John Eric Mendoza.
Providing healing, wellness
“More than just giving guests aesthetic pleasure, Hotel H2O, perhaps more importantly, provides healing and wellness,” Mendoza said in an interview with Inquirer Property.
Mendoza explained that this kind of paint, aside from being odorless, emits negative ions that attract dust and other allergenic and pathogenic particles and clumps them together. Eventually, these clumped particles would become heavy enough to fall in a mass that can be easily cleaned, instead of these staying suspended in the air.
“In effect, all our rooms and the rest of the hotel’s interiors are practically free from floating dust and inhalable particles,” Mendoza said in an earlier statement.
Mendoza related in the interview that guests who have stayed in Hotel H20 even called back to affirm an improvement in their conditions, particularly those who have asthma. The negative ions have also been reported to curb depression as these help uplift one’s spirits, he added.
