Creating experiences is a crucial element for any traveller. Whether that is learning about the local culture or signing business deals, curating the versatile hotel stay takes an understanding of the complicated psyche of the modern traveller, their needs and luxury desires.
The Savoy Hotel Manila has taken the challenge of creating a venue that accommodates the traveller of today and the future.
When it comes to location, the hotel is just a 10 to 15mins walk away from the Ninoy Aquino International airport, and its Runway Manila.
Once guests have arrived at the hotel, they can check into one of the 684 rooms on offer. Each room has been designed explicitly with luxury at the fore and with practicality and versatility in mind. Rooms are decorated in calming neutral palettes with pops of colour in on-trend accessories and soft furnishings. The Essentials rooms come in a choice of twin or double bed configurations. The Runway is an executive suite with the business traveller in mind with a bird’s eye view of the airport. For those looking for a generous space to work and relax, The Space suite comes with a dedicated living area where guests can unwind or catch up on work. The largest of the suites is The Deck, with fifty square metres of breath-taking views along with accessories such as mini-bar and coffee maker. Each includes a variety of space for guests to relax, along with practical elements such as charging points for electronics and designated workspace. Additional elements such as hot beverage station and in-room amenities come as standard.
The culinary offering at the Savoy Hotel Manila mirrors the diversity of the guests. The Savoy Cafe offers Western-inspired dishes through to divine Asian cuisine; all served to the exacting standards of a luxury restaurant. For those looking to stir things up with a cocktail or two, the Zabana Bar’s relaxing atmosphere and skilled mixologists can rustle up a signature drink while guests can take in the relaxed ambience. For guests looking to mix drinks with a spa experience, The Poolside bar is a must-visit destination.
The Savoy Hotel Manila understands that not all guests want to work in their rooms, so the incorporation of a designated space for meetings, catch-ups and brainstorming plays a key part in the design. Extra comfy chairs have been installed along with charging points and table areas to create versatile spaces perfect for organising group meetings or break out areas. Throughout the hotel high-speed Wi-Fi connection is available for guests, so there is no worry about missing that vital email or conference call.
The Connect Lounge provides the ideal space for travellers to connect either for business or social functions. For those wanting larger scale event and meeting spaces, the Savoy Hotel Manila’s sister hotel in Newport City offers fully equipped function halls and working lounges designed and fitted with the latest technology with the business traveller in mind.
Leisure travellers can take advantage of a wealth of entertainment and cultural experiences. For shopping fans looking for that latest must-have label or finding that exquisite gift, the Mall of Asia is one of the largest in Asia. The famous landmark of the Intramuros walled city gives visitors a glimpse at the varied tapestry of Manila history from when Spain ruled. Away from the bustle of the surrounding streets, Paco Park provides a welcome retreat. Created during Spanish rule, it is now a beautifully landscaped space.
Whether business or leisure, the panel at Luxury Lifestyle Awards considered the hotel a formula winning destination that cleverly combines the needs of all travellers while showcasing the best that Manila has on offer.

As the world gets ready to travel again the Savoy Manila should be top of your luxury destination list when planning your next leisure or business trip.
