Mardi Gras is French for "Fat Tuesday", referring to the practice of last night of eating richer and fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten Season. I've just attended a Mardi Gras Party of Picasso Boutique Residences in gratitude of their long-staying guests last Tuesday, April 19, 2011 at the Picasso Roofdeck with blogger friends.
The event featured colorful tables with beads and masks in celebration before the fasting and religious observations associated with the penitential season of Lent. We were greeted with friendly and accommodating marketing managers of the Picasso Boutique Residences located in Leviste St. Salcedo Village, Makati City.
Served as refreshment was their festive and colorful fruit punch along with a buffet of delectable dishes like Shrimp Jambalaya, Carbonara, French Quiche on Ciabatta bread, Cheese Quesadilla and Chips with desserts Chocolate Cupcakes and Fruit Salad.
President of Picasso Boutique Residences, Mr. Michel Gaultier explained the celebrations of Mardi Gras in Europe and expressed his gratitude to the long-staying guests who participated in the event. While the others were enjoying the delicious feast, participants were invited to dance and drink to their heart's content as the music played techno hip-hop music.
I was happy trying on masks and beads while cheering for the foreign guests strut moves on the dance floor. I wanted to have a colorful and artistic perspective photo being inspired by a guest I've met on the elevator with green eyes who got off at the 7th floor and walked passed an artsy hallways with paintings and decors. Picasso Boutique Residences would seem like an art gallery from the ground floor. Every floor has art decors, paintings and sculptures that will really inspire and enliven your visual sense.
The rooms sizes range from 45sqm Malaga Suites at (P9,000/daily) which would really be cheaper at P5,500 for a minimum of 7 nights; Barcelona Suite at 88sqm will cost P12,600/daily and P7,700 for 7 minimum nights; Picasso Suites at 93 sqm at P16,200/daily and P9,900/net minimum of 7 nights and Lofts Malaga and Barcelona Suites at 133sqm at P19,800/daily and P12,300 for 7 nights minimum stay. All room prices are prices much lower when arranging for long stays.
Their amenities include a gym, spa, salon, internet lounge, gallery and lounge and conference rooms. They have centralized air-conditioning, balconies, Ipod docking stations, direct dial telephone with voicemail features, 32" flat screen LCD monitor with cable channels, DVD player, bedside clock radio, hairdryer, kitchenette with electric stove, microwave, tea and coffee-making facilities, rice cooker, iron and ironing board, refrigerator, Fine China, Silverware, Glassware and WIFI for each room. Services include; daily housekeeping, complimentary daily local newspaper, 24-hour reception/concierge, room service, airport transfer service, laundry, pressing and dry cleaning services and complimentary parking.
They really take care of their guests well paying tribute to long-staying guests like this Mardi Gras Party to ensure their needs and concerns are met. I had fun watching a French guy kept showing off his original and distinct dance moves which kept the crowd entertained. Like the others who joined the party, the guests had a great time dancing and drinking with the staff of Picasso. Not too many residences and condominium offer such personal and entertaining service to guests. It will definitely keep more guests from staying in the convenient and artsy Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences. I really recommend anyone who'd have business or travel in Makati to stay at Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences not just to relax and enjoy the comfort of their convenient and uniquely-designed rooms and lofts but be pampered with the type of personal services they offer. They really know how to provide quality service.
