As I step inside the modern hotel main door I was welcomed with a smile by the hotel guest relations officer (GRO) in the front receptionist desk even though it was just 5 o’clock in the morning. It was nice to be welcomed with so much warmth. No wonder the Ilocanos are famous for being hospitable all over the world. A good first impression indeed!
Just across the hotel reception desk is a comfortable sofa, an unpainted wood carving, plants and a wall made of small square mirrors, tiled out to look like a window to give the optical illusion of what you wish was there, instead of what really is a mirror. It was indeed a very good way to make the area look wider. It has created a larger more open-feeling space, that also gives depth to the space without weighing things down.
Did you know that?
Mirrors are useful when space is short, they can also bring a wow factor to a well-proportioned room, lending a sense of drama while maximizing the feeling of size.
I learned these information from my architect neighbour / friend Joyce. She further said that a space combined with a soaring ceiling will instantly doubled by adding a wall of framed mirrors and mirrored doors. The end result will be a lovely sense of symmetry, and you can further make it twice as fabulous by adding a showstopper chandelier and everything in that space will be awesome!
Geez, those throw pillows are so dainty! It features a woman in a Filipiniana attire.
Just adjacent the main hotel building is the building that houses the Spa and Jacuzzi room of Metro Vigan Fiesta Garden Hotel. Again, the use of mirrors provided a beautiful illumination of its surroundings and bounces the light around and brighten the space. Note: Did you noticed the beautiful cobblestone flooring? It looks just like the flooring in Calle Crisologo!

As you traverse the hallway going to the hotel’s restaurant or to the hotel’s vip room located at the second floor, you’ll pass through this wonderful view.

As you climb the stairs, you can’t help but notice the beautiful wood carvings of the hotel’s initials conveniently stashed at the vertical metal stair handrails.
Beautifully carved ceiling of the Fiesta Garden Hotel.
The hand-carved door of the hotel’s presidential suite.
Each room is elegantly designed to give a festive vibe for a most relaxing stay. I can say that I discover comfort in all of the rooms with uniquely accented “carved fiesta theme” doors.
I was bowled over by the festive artwork on each of the wooden door of the 53-Rooms Hotel. I bet you’ll also appreciate each of the masterfully carved festive door carvings that they had made all the way from Paete, Laguna. Whoah! What a dedication to Filipino art and culture!
The Presidential suite bedroom. My bed. Joke. Hi hi hi! I wish #WishKoLang
Our breakfast of rice and scrambled eggs on our first and second day at the Fiesta Garden Hotel.
My fellow blogger, Vigan’s number one travel blogger Edmar and I had a great time when we went night swimming in this beautiful swimming pool. It was very convenient because you could take a shower anytime of the day or night because hot water is readily available in every room.
