These days, it is fairly easy to append an eco- or nature-friendly tag to your standard, fully-functioning establishment. With sustainable practices, ethical guarantees, and an advertised segregation scheme, you can lay claim to the covetable green tag and pacify a more conscious and active public. However, there is a world of a difference from actually living, breathing and committing to an environmental psyche—and to make it look good, no less.
Nestled within the bustling and commercially active Quezon City, there stands Cocoon Boutique Hotel, the first truly green hotel in the Philippines. Maintaining a safe distance from the cacophony of the vibrant segment of Timog, the deluxe boutique hotel is an oasis, a respite from the hustle of the day-to-day or the physical strain of your vacation.
Typically, you can spot when what should be a human obligation at this point gets waylaid for the age-old practices. But at Cocoon, you are immediately coddled by a genuine spirit that is keenly attuned to nature the very moment you step through its facade. Relaxing and serene—the space is refined and subdued, where the feeling of home is definitely felt.
From the amenities, decor, and even cooling systems, the practice of sustainability is upheld to high regard. From the use of reclaimed wood, metal roofing and steel grills of a demolished structure on site, passive cooling through building orientation and insulation on metal roofing, as well as harvesting of rain and groundwater for toilet flushing, plant irrigation, and general house cleaning, Cocoon Boutique Hotel definitely walks the talk. Ultimately, there is very little impact and carbon footprint left on an already very delicate ecosystem. A home away from home, Cocoon swathes guests in a decadent and indulgent stay, leaving one refreshed and reinvigorated.
With utmost attention for everyone who walks through their doors, comfort and relaxation are met at an optimum. A heavenly experience awaits with the hotel’s top-of-the-line beds with pocket springs and memory foam, 600 thread-count 100% Egyptian cotton bed linen, and deep soak bathtubs in every room. The well-deserved practice of self-love is also encouraged, which is made possible by in-hotel facilities, the mind and body is rejuvenated with an aesthetic clinic (Nouvelle Aesthetic Clinic), spa and salon (Cocoon by Serenity Aromatherapy), and of course, specialty restaurants (The Deck Bar and Breakfast Venue, Abuela’s Coffee Shop, and Stockwell Cafe + Lounge) at your convenience.
By providing a welcome escape a stone’s throw away from the city, Cocoon Boutique Hotel is truly the best of both worlds. With its access to the lifeline of the city, and most importantly, its dedication to caring and nurturing the environment, this sanctuary is naturally the standard to be held in modern hospitality—one that thinks of and for you, with high regard for the greater good and world that you move in. Now, that is what we call world-class, humanistic service.
