The Blulane Hotel had undergone several phases of modernization through the years with the opening of progressive establishments, the essence of its old-world charm has remained intact with the eateries at the esteros, to the different shops that offer pieces of jewelry, and traditional Chinese medicines.

I always look for Chandeliers whenever I enter a hotel even in a restaurant, because for me if a hotel doesn't have even a single simple and the small one I won't consider it as a glamorous and or luxurious one. It's a must that every hotel needs to have it because it adds up to make it a beautiful ambiance. It stands as a statement of its own. At Blulane they have not just one of the most elegant and beautiful chandeliers I've ever seen being in different hotels and it was so eye-catching perfect to take a selfie with. Chandeliers are used for decoration and luminescence, add a feeling of luxury at the lobby of The Blulane Hotel.

I still can't get enough of the Fried Crabs in Salt and Pepper (Wok cooked fresh crabs with salt and pepper) THE BEST! I wished I had asked the chef how it was cooked and the full recipe. I will surely come back for it for more! ^_^ And the dry massage at The Spa though it was only 20 minutes and I was about to fell asleep when i was told its done I would want to extend it more but then since I know I'll be coming back I will come back for it too....

Thank You The Blulane Hotel, no matter how far your location maybe you're really something worth coming back and spend quality time with my family and friends.

One thing is really missing and looking forward that they will have is a swimming pool, it will surely complete everything. I'm sure in the days to come they will be having one! And I will be one of the happiest!
