Best Hotels in the Philippines

The Philippines’ pristine beaches, swaying palms and crystal-blue waters draw travelers from around the world. But it’s not all about roughing it — the archipelago is home to luxury hotels that will pamper you in style.

The best hotel brands are embracing the digital age by connecting directly with travelers via social media, websites and mobile apps. And some are enhancing their rooms with smart technology and amenities that make guests feel at home.

For instance, the Mark Hotel in New York City combines the character of a 1920s landmark with upscale amenities like the latest in-room technology and a seasonal rooftop plunge pool. Designed by famed architect Jacques Grange, the hotel’s sleek interiors exude luxury and comfort from the moment you step through the door.

Other best hotels are reimagining the guest experience with the help of innovative chefs and designers. At The Langham in New York City, the swanky suites boast picture windows that frame striking Manhattan skylines and terrazzo marble bathrooms. The hotel also offers a restaurant that serves farm-to-table cuisine and cocktails served in the 10th-floor Harriet’s Lounge with live DJs.

Across the country, new hotels are opening their doors to visitors looking for a fresh take on hospitality. In addition to a sleek, modern design, these hotels are offering extras that add up to a truly special stay, including complimentary breakfast, room upgrades and spa credits. Some even have a “digital concierge” to take care of every travel need before and during your visit.
