Aruga, your comfort zone away from home


WHO doesn’t want to be pampered? We want it, we deserve it at home or even at the hotel we choose to stay when traveling for business, leisure or just finding a serene spot to nestle in and do nothing.

When visiting Manila, choices are abundant. In the area we need to be, we can stay in a “tried and tested” hotel or try a new one, and perhaps discover a new comfort zone.

Comfort zones are created. It’s that space what we can refer to as “just like home.” A place far from where we reside, yet get that comfort and attention we are used to.

Here is a brand that expresses—with confidence in its name-that space we want: Aruga, “nurture” in Filipino.

This can be your comfort zone. Staying at the Aruga at Rockwell is like living in your own studio unit in Makati

What makes it special?

“With the proliferation of choices for accommodations these days, it is easy to get lost in the rush of brands and promotions but the discerning traveler knows that connectivity and accessibility are the keys. Aruga by Rockwell, Rockwell Land’s hotel and leisure arm, offers prime spots for exceptional serviced residences in the metro’s top central business districts – Makati and Ortigas,” said General Manager Angela Pagulayan.
