The Peninsula Manila

Where to Stay in Manila
October 2, 2019

Why we like it: When we’re on our way to the Amanpulo and need a place to post up overnight, The Peninsula Manila has never let us down. It is the most classic, beautiful place to stay, and it’s the center of social life in the country.

The breakfast is the most lavish brunch you could fathom. The price of the hotel, while on the pricier side of all other hotels in Manila, is still reasonable by luxury hotel standards. The staff is impeccable, and the hotel is conveniently located in Makati, minutes away from the Salcedo Saturday Market, in close proximity to all the major shopping malls: Glorietta, Power Plant, Century City, and Greenbelt. The best restaurants are all within walking distance too (we especially recommend the Blackbird Manila).

What to know: While this is one of the most luxury hotels in the world, it is still located in a Third World Country. It may not be on par with The Peninsula Beverly Hills, but it is still the best in The Philippines (at least until the Mandarin Oriental opens).
