Arrival area of NAIA Terminal I

My plane lands at around 11:00 pm on a Friday night and if lucky I could be done with Immigration, Customs and my baggage claim by 1:00 am on Saturday.

I would like to know if there are places in the NAIA Terminal I - lounge, restaurant, or waiting area that I could stay at rather than travel to Ortigas via metered taxi that late.

I would rather wait until daylight to get on the DOT authorized metered taxis to get to Ortigas around 6:00 in the morning of Saturday.

I don't like to stay in hotels if at all possible.

Would appreciate your advice and list of options.

Thank you.

Motel/Hotel pickup

Last October I arrived the same time, 11pm. The Hotel that I had reservations with also offered a service to pick me up so when I arrived at the airport, they were waiting on me. The service was cheaper than the airport taxi!

If you are this paranoid, why go to the Philippines? Just curious.

I understand there are airport accredited taxis you can use. I believe they are quite safe. You can book at the lounge of the airport and pay a standard fare there. Public taxis are not allowed to pick up passengers from the airport anymore.
Alternatively, most hotels have pick up bus. You just have to let them know .
