A mother is one of the greatest gifts from heaven. Her role in our family is so important that I believe no one could ever replace her. Beyond giving birth and life to her children, she nurtures and loves them and wishes all the best for her loved ones. She can be that selfless.
As a daughter, I have seen 30 plus Mother’s Days come and go. I have gifted my mom several flowers and made her dozens of cards. I gave her several bedsheets and anything she could use in her kitchen or bathroom. And on each occasion, she has always been grateful.
This Mother’s Day, I would like to gift her something just like her – a glistening diamond that even from afar, invites the curious to take a glimpse of its captivating charm. And once inside, anyone has become so attached that she wouldn’t want any other place than what she has just discovered.
One of the five condominiums to rise in the expansive Sta. Lucia Residenze, Santorini Tower is strategically located in the heart of the bustling business and leisure hub in the eastern part of Metro Manila, straddling the cities of Pasig, Marikina, Antipolo, and the municipality of Cainta.
And why this gift of all gifts? Because Santorini Tower simply replicates the beauty of its namesake location. Santorini Islands, Greece’s most popular island, is understandably considered as the most romantic among the Greek islands being the top choice for weddings, anniversary celebrations, and renewal of vow ceremonies.
When I first visited Sta. Lucia’s Santorini, I felt the same fresh coastline breeze of Santorini Islands through the tower’s unique architecture. This Mediterranean-inspired structure offers condominium spaces with choices of studio, 1- and 2- bedroom units. Each chic and spacious abode welcomes in natural lighting – a rare feature among residential condominiums – that gives unit owners- my mom especially- their clear view of the horizon, unobstructed by mountains, buildings, and trees. I imagine my mother enjoying the city skyline year-round from her window. Each living space is also sensibly laid-out, creating an ambiance of flexibility and elegance, which my mom would surely love.
But what attracted me the most to Santorini Tower is its perfect condotel investment feature. The 5th to 15th floors function as a condotel which unit owners can either lease for investment or reserve for a relaxing vacation. With low property management fees, tie-ups with well-known international booking sites, and the professional expertise of the Sta. Lucia Hotel Managment Group, any Santorini property investment is in good hands.
As I tour around Santorini Tower, I am all the more convinced that my mother would enjoy her stay here. From one’s private space is a leisurely walk to an exciting array of resort-type amenities. Rounding up the lifestyle features are an adult swimming pool, a kiddie pool, a children’s playground, and a fully-equipped fitness center. And for those picture perfect views of the leisure amenities and the skyline, one may opt to enjoy the landscaped garden and open gazebo. Celebrating life’s unforgettable milestones with family and friends or just a simple meeting with business associates is effortless as booking at the many function rooms is readily available at Santorini Tower.
I have also come to learn that just like Santorini Islands which has so much to offer (to Greek Islands first timer or frequent visitors) one can always hie off to more fun and excitement just a few floors away from her Santorini Tower unit. Just an elevator ride away is Il Centro, a premier mall within Sta. Lucia Residenze. A multitude of specialty shops, dining choices, and health and wellness hubs are only but a few options to one’s usual mall-shopping experience. Cinemas, bowling lanes, and a supermarket are also conveniently available.
Within Sta. Lucia Residenze are Mediterranean-inspired residential enclaves that exude a distinct charming atmosphere each inspired from its namesake tourist hotspots. This ambitious development has transformed Cainta and its neighboring cities of Antipolo, Marikina, and Pasig as a sought-after address for the middle to upper-class market. And with the addition of Santorini Tower within this cosmopolitan complex, romantic escapes need not be as far as the Mediterranean. Santorini Tower’s elegant and modern hotel suites and private spaces will surely make one’s everyday truly romantic.
I am confident that Santorini Tower will make my mom feel special and well-loved. After all, she deserves all the love not only on Mother’s Day but all year round.
Mother’s Day will come and go. But the love and sacrifices of our mother will never come and go. Give her the gift she very well deserves. Gift her with her own Santorini Tower unit.
Santorini Tower will soon top off this May 21 . To know more about the project and special discounts, visit www.staluciaresidenze.com and www.royalehomes.ph, or call (02) 584-1164.
