First thing that would probably come to mind is: “How do I pronounce Widus?”
I had many guesses. I am sure, you find yourself likewise guessing on how to pronounce it properly, if it’s the first time you encountered Widus Hotel and Casino, one of the luxury hotels in Clark Freeport Zone in Angeles, Pampanga.
Widus, properly pronounce as “with us,” is a premier hotel and entertainment center in the area. Widus was established by Korean national Mr. Daesik Han in 2006, out of disappointment from finding a nice hotel to stay in the area during his visit in Clark.
Widus Hotel and Casino is a combination of accommodation, relaxation, entertainment and events. It is now on a continual effort to expand, prompted by influx of tourism in the area and and in anticipation of Clark International Airport’s nearing main gateway in the country.
Widus sports of its 233 accommodations, combining of guest rooms and suites combined, suitable for single, double or group occupancy.
I stayed overnight in one of the Executive Double De Luxe Rooms of Widus, exactly at room 346.
This Executive Double De Luxe room is a 35-square meter room, spacious enough for two people to stay in. With two queen-size comfortable beds perfect for sound sleep, anytime of the day.
This room is equipped with its own remote-operated aircon, mini refrigerator, flat TV with cable connection and a relaxing couch to just sit down.
Its bathroom is simply classy. With most of the basic things needed by any guests, but only designed luxuriously. This part of the room, I am quite particular in hotels, aside from the bed.
The light inside the bathroom brings out the beauty. The Executive Double De Luxe has an 8-inch shower head for that soothing rain-like feel for that hot or cold bath you’d like. The shower area is separated from the toilet and wash area with a smoked-glass divider.
I personally liked the scent of their soap. I just can’t remember what perfume it smells like.
There’s a feature of the Widus’ Executive Double De Luxe that surprised me the most.
The bathroom area has a two-way glass that you can look outside from the bathroom to the room and vice versa.
I find it intriguing for people sharing rooms together, say workmates. Though, you can always cover the glass securely for your roommate not to see what you’re doing on the “throne” Lol!
It would be just a tease and room for some “fantasy” for couples staying in the room.
As for me, I never had to miss what I was watching while I was doing my stuff in the bathroom.
WIDUS HOTEL AND CASINO AMENITIES
Widus is more than just a hotel. With all its amenities, you can enjoy the place, beyond the comfort of your room.
Their eye-candy swimming pool precedes its reputation. With all the marketing collaterals of Widus using the pool as the photo, you wouldn’t think you wouldn’t be surprised. But seeing it with your own eyes, its just good.
The pool has kiddie area, waterfalls and slide.
It is just sad though, that during my stay, I wasn’t able to try taking a dip. 🙁
For those not wanting to miss their regular routine of working out, Widus has its own gym. Their gym is fairly equipped with what any regular gym buff would be needing.
Widus also has sundry shop, spa, business center and a good internet connection.
WIDUS EVENT and CONVENTION CENTER
Widus has prepared itself to be a one-stop-shop for events, offering numerous rooms that can cater both corporate and social gatherings. With catering services available and a good selection of rooms, that they also offer to customize according to client’s need, then, I wouldn’t be surprised of why they are almost always booked.
As for some nightlife and music entertainment, Widus Hotel and Casino has Prism Lounge that is open every night featuring local live band. Prism Lounge, even was the venue for international artists Rex Smith and Stylistics’ performances.
CASINO and GAME ROOM
Widus has a 24×7 casino located at the hotel lobby of the main building. This 420 sq ft game room has 25 gaming tables and 150 slot machines. The Widus casino is equipped with CCTV cameras for guests’ protection and security.
As to the other parts of the hotel, I find it very neat, simple, yet sophisticated and equipped with safety standards, almost everywhere. Plus, with CCTV cameras at many areas, I find it very secure.
These are actually small details in the whole Widus service that I think gives a good impression to guests of what kind of stay to expect.
As for the service, it was generally warm, especially that I, together with other bloggers, went there during the holidays.
Widus Hotel and Resort is a de luxe hotel fully-equipped for a safe, secure and luxurious stay in Clark, Angeles, Pampanga. You can never go wrong should you wish to stay at Widus as the whole property has amenities for leisure, relaxation and business.
