Hotel Mandarin Oriental

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by Quan on January 8, 2001

Usually considered one of the deluxe hotels in Manila, Mandarin Oriental is located on Makati Avenue. Because the exchange rate is so favorable, you can actually savor great luxury for a reasonable price. Though it is always considered one of the top hotels, I don''t remember the rooms much, except that they were fairly sizable and functional. But the hotel has a great bar, and you can elect to be served by the pool, which is romantically lit in the evening. Not a bad place to spend an evening.

One luxury that you can always enjoy in Asia, but which costs an arm and a leg in the States, is the spa service offered in most luxury hotels. I always go for the massage. For a fairly minimal price compared to here (about $20/hour), you can get a massage in the hotel spa, or even in your room. There is nothing better for an exhausting day of sightseeing or shopping.
