  1. Swim in a luxurious swimming pool
A sunny weekend always calls for a dip in the pool. Check out Solaire’s Azure Pool—with its roomy cabanas and relaxing lounge chairs—for the ultimate city getaway with your friends or family.
Soak up all the Vitamin D you can get while sipping on a boozy cocktail or munching on tasty poolside treats. Just always remember to wear sunscreen!
  1. Get an adrenaline rush at the Sky Range
What’s a better way to blow off steam than by having a few rounds at the shooting range?
Equipped with cutting-edge technology and the safest tools possible for an indoor shooting range, the Sky Range in Solaire boasts 25-meter long shooting bays, high-end firearm rentals, and expert gun handling training. Coupled with qualified safety professionals, beginners and avid shooters alike can enjoy a next-level shooting experience like no other!
  1. Spoil yourself with a little personal shopping
If retail therapy is your way of getting over your weekday woes, then a trip to The Shoppes at Solaire should be on top of your list this weekend.
With a wide range of shops—from big fashion brands to boutique designer stores—you really can’t go wrong. And when you need a nice break from all the shopping and walking around, The Patisserie is the perfect place for coffee and specialty pastries as this is located right in the middle of the strip. Let’s be honest, there’s nothing a new pair of shoes and box of fancy chocolates can’t fix.
  1. Watch local and foreign theater plays
For those that have a knack for the performing arts and checking out riveting events in Manila, the performing arts scene has found somewhat of a new home in Pasay.
Featuring both local and international shows, The Theater in Solaire offers an extraordinary viewing experience for all. Boasting a seating capacity of 1,760 as well as state-of-the-art lighting and sound, it’s one of the premier performing arts venues in the Philippines.
Don’t forget to keep yourself updated on the schedule!
  1. Enjoy live music
Your weekend afternoons are best spent at one of Solaire’s beautiful cafes. Sit back, relax, and have a few drinks with the help of live classical piano at the Oasis Garden Café.
With scrumptious canapes and a wide selection of quality wines, you just know it’s going to be a feast for the senses!
  1. Play your favorite casino games and indulge in a delicious meal
Feeling the itch to roll the dice? Head to Solaire’s Casino for slot machines, roulettes, poker, and tabletop games galore! You can even sign up as a member on your next visit to gain access to exclusive perks and privileges.
But the experience doesn’t end there! Solaire has several fine dining restaurants to truly make this weekend an unforgettable experience! And for those looking for a more casual dining setting, there’s always the range of buffet and a la carte local and international cuisine.
  1. Visit a museum
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to expand your knowledge on a certain topic. Visit any of the museums in Manila on your next free weekend! Whether you’re into art, science, or history, you’ll surely find something that will pique your brain.
On the other hand, if you’re an art fan of sorts, the rooms and halls of Solaire Resort and Casino boast over 2,000 unique artworks, making it the hotel with the biggest Filipino art collection.
