    by machomikemd Updated Jan 23, 2015

    THe Hyatt Hotel Manila is now renamed the New World Hotel Manila Bay but it still retains the facilities of the former Hyatt (which moved to the Grand Hyatt in the new casino complex, called City of Dreams Manila) and what to do on a lazy day but to have a dip at the large swimming pool and jacuzzi at the complex and doing nothing for a worthwhile staycation. If you are staying at the hotel, the swimming pool and jacuzzi are free.

    Equipment: you must have a waterproof camera or a waterproof gear for your smartphone to be able to take pictures around.
