With so many people going out of town, we can only guess that resorts are teeming with people, beaches are crowded, and the usual summer spots are filled with families trying to catch a break. If you still want to relax and bond with loved ones, you need not go far. Check different hotels in the city, review the amenities, and book your stay.

If you're still looking for the right place, here are four recommendations that you can check out. Trust us, these places aren't just pretty, they can help you unwind and enjoy the break to the fullest.

Summit Hotel Magnolia

Designed by Chako Hirayama of Design HQ, Summit Hotel Magnolia features different rooms—each with a distinct appeal.

Those who want to feel glam and fab, the Fabulous Suite features Hollywood-inspired art and accessories as well as vintage travel cases repurposed as side tables. For more details, click here.
