Metro Manila · Mandarin Oriental Manila [Closed]
The Mandarin Oriental Manila was one of the first luxury hotels in the Central Business District when it opened in September 1976. For more than 40 years, the hotel hosted countless international stars, diplomats, businessmen and Manila's creme de la creme within its storied walls. Each year, the Metro's elite and members of the press awaited its popular Chinese New Year countdown led by its resident geomancer Joseph Chau. A new Mandarin Hotel is set to open in Makati, just across its former location, in 2020.
+++Update Sept 9 2014+++
Mandarin Oriental Manila finally closed its doors.
+++ Update June 2014 +++
A press release dated June 4 declared the nearing closure of the existing hotel and the signing of a long-term management contract for a new luxury 275 room hotel in Manila. The new hotel will be owned by the Ayala Group and be part of a mixed-use development within Makati City. Details about the new location have not yet been disclosed. Since its opening in 1976, the Mandarin Oriental Manila has been one of the Megacity's iconic luxury hotels.
Mandarin was one of several international luxury hotel chains represented in Makati. This high class hotel is not designed for backpackers, but rather for business men, diplomats and wealthy tourists. It has 413 spacious rooms and 29 luxurious suites with all the service you need, as well as a Spa & Wellness center and various restaurants and bars (among them Martinis).
There are 15 function rooms available for distinguished meetings and events, including a grand ballroom and fully-equiped boardrooms. The swimming pool area can be reserved for festivities as well. Apart from that, the Mandarin can provide catering for up to 1000 people.
Why Megacitizens Should Pay This Establishment A Visit
The overwhelming buffet in the Mandarin's restaurant Paseo Uno seems to pile up nearly every delicacy one can think of.
