Set in the heart of the Makati Central Business Center, Peninsula Manila is full of five-star comfort, with easy access to the Stock Exchange, Ayala Center and other area attractions. Rooms offer panoramic city views and are outfitted in sleek, contemporary furnishings in a nod to the modern design sensibilities of the Philippines. Four restaurants, including Old Manila and The Lobby, the hotel’s flagship venue, offer sumptuous settings for lunch or dinner, while 24-hour room service ensures you won’t go hungry between meals. Outside, the hotel fountain is a landmark in its own right, making an iconic Manila photo-op.
In the Area
The property’s enviable location puts the city’s best restaurant and retail venues within easy walking distance. But the Peninsula Spa is worth setting aside a full day for, thanks to its full treatment menu, luxury spa amenities by Simply Peninsula and traditional hilot healing services. Nearby, Ayala Center offers brand-name swag at a deep discount, including Bvlgari, Armani Exchange, Guess and an assortment of cosmetic outfits, like Sisley and Shiseido. And the hotel concierge is available around the clock to coordinate excursions, city tours and other family-friendly fun.
How to Get There
We stayed at the Peninsula for the first few days of our two week honeymoon in the Philippines. This was my second stay here and my husband’s first and I knew he would love it. The hotel itself is beautiful, with a stunning lobby. The service was impeccable and the staff sent up a celebratory cheese plate with a bottle of wine which was a lovely touch. We spent a lot of time by the pool and pool bar, which we really enjoyed. The rooms are very comfortable with spacious, luxurious bathrooms, and though it is in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Makati, our stay was incredibly relaxing. The hotel is also walking distance to the Greenbelt and Glorietta malls if you’re interested in venturing out on foot. We loved our stay at the Peninsula and will be sure to book a stay here again next time we are in Manila!
It is my first time to stay at Peninsula Manila. Check in was swift and I agreed to stay in twin room as it is available for me at 9 AM in the morning.
The lobby is exquisite! And I saw to it that I will admire it more by having one of their famous afternoon tea. They did not disappoint and they are indeed worth the hype.
The room has ample space and what I love the most is the bathroom!
It should have been 5 stars if check out was done as swift as the check in. I checked out at 4AM in the morning and there was only one staff manning the table. Amidst a throng of staff in the lobby preparing to start the day. It is only when I asked the Concierge if she can help out that she called for the additional staff.
The only reason I see people check out at 4 AM is to catch a flight. Please provide additional staff to man your reception please.
I recently enjoyed spending a week at the Peninsula Manila on a business visit.
The checkin directly in my bedroom was very smooth.
Throughout my stay, I was very impressed by the lively Lobby; the Xmas decorations were beautiful and no matter what time of the day or night I walked in, there was always something going on with guests enjoying either some food or some beverages.
I thought the team was very friendly throughout the hotel and appreciated their genuine smiles and care.
The location of the hotel is very nice with some great dinning options in the surroundings.
The gym is nicely equipped and directly facing the sunny pool deck; I enjoyed spending time there every morning.
A very solid option to enjoy the up-and-coming capital city of the Philippines; I am looking forward to my next stay!
I stayed one night at this iconic hotel! Got picked up from the airport by a BMW organized by the hotel and the driver (Ace?) was amazing. Friendly, welcoming and super attentive. Check-in in the room was smooth, pleasant and very organized. Rooms are on the older side but very charming. Club floor was great, but I only had a quick breakfast there.
Gym is small, but you find everything you need. Very attentive staff again here. Can only recommend this hotel when in Manila. The hotel has lots of class and the service is outstanding. Perfect spot and the location is also great in Makati. Highly recommended.
Most great hotels have a lot in common...great food, soft sheets, dramatic lobbies. The Peninsula Manila manages to check all those boxes with ease. What puts this elegant art deco oasis in a league of it's own is the staff. From the airport driver to bell hop to waiters..every employee we encountered was a perfect blend of warmth and professionalism. Zipping about in their perfectly starched dress whites, performing countless mini miracles ..and with real, genuine smiles. One gets the impression that everybody is very happy to be working there. The black suited butlers, waiters etc are equally talented. No request is too small. They remember your name., Your coffee, Your room # ...in a way that shows they are paying attention. We were so impressed that WE started remembering the names of a few that managed to stand out even among this group...there was Richard and Angelo the waiters..you'll think they trained at some 3star Michelin restaurant. Red the concierge was great, very informative and helpful..get your hair done..get a massage from Sonny...and if you hit the lottery, maybe you will get Queenie caring for your suite. If it takes getting a suite to have Queenie ...get the damn suite! What a worker.. fast, flexible, rooms were sparkling, always with a lovely smile..what a pleasure to have Queenie around for our stay..we will be back to Peninsula Manila in March..we don't need to stop on our way home..we just want to spend another few days at this grand and warm and charming place. 5 Stars!....(Queenie gets 6 stars).
