Live your suite life out at these five-star hotels in Manila.
Travel is making its comeback after years of delayed or canceled openings, vacations, conferences, and other events.
In light of this grand return to hotels and other getaways, Forbes Travel Guide has released its 2022 Star Award Winners to recognize the best in the industry.
Forbes featured a total of 323 five-star hotels, 558 four-star properties, and 401 recommended hotels. In the Philippines, these include 5 five-star, 6 four-star, and two recommended hotels.
Their global team of anonymous inspectors obtained these ratings by visiting and evaluating every property based on up to 900 objective criteria. Forbes ensured a minimum of two nights for hotels stay, paid for their own way.
Here are Manila’s five-star hotels featured in the Forbes Travel Guide’s 2022 Star Award Winners.
Marco Polo Ortigas Manila
Marco Polo Ortigas Manila received its sixth-consecutive Forbes Travel Guide five-star award this year. It attributes this consistent recognition to its promise of “Explore. Discover. Experience,” as the country’s first sky hotel.
Nüwa Manila at City of Dreams
Nüwa Manila at City of Dreams also received its fifth-consecutive five-star award from Forbes Travel Guide, alongside its Nüwa Spa Manila receiving the same rating for a third consecutive year. The hotel credits its dedication to service quality and contribution to pushing boundaries during an otherwise testing time for the entire hospitality industry.
