Today, the inspired luxury of Conrad Hotels & Resorts makes its debut in the Philippines with the opening of Conrad Manila.
Owned by SM Hotels and Conventions Corporation, a subsidiary of SM Investment Corporation and managed by Hilton Worldwide, the 347 room Conrad Manila is located at the forefront of the Mall of Asia complex, in the heart of the 42 hectare Bay City development, a destination earmarked as a shopping, leisure, and business hub.
“We are delighted to establish Conrad Hotels & Resorts in this vibrant capital of Manila.
“The award-winning Conrad Manila, which enhances our portfolio, underscores our commitment to delivering best-in-class hotels in key gateway locations that meet the growing needs of global luxury travellers.
“An inspiring destination, Conrad Manila will delight guests with intuitive and customised service, as well as provide them access to a world of connections and inspired experiences,” said John Vanderslice, global head, Conrad Hotels & Resorts.
The hotel sits atop the two-level S Maison, a high-end retail complex, and has direct connections via walking bridges to SMX Convention Centre, the country’s largest convention space, and is adjacent to SM Mall of Asia, one of the country’s largest malls, as well as Mall of Asia Arena, a 16,000-seater indoor stadium where international shows, concerts and major sporting events are held.
“The stunning Conrad Manila is an exceptional addition to the Conrad Hotels & Resorts portfolio and we are delighted to be partnering with SM hotels on this exciting project, who share our passion for excellence.
“Its opening underscores the growth of our portfolio across Asia Pacific and our continued commitment to the dynamic market of the Philippines.
“This landmark property perfectly complements the vibrancy of this amazing capital city and will set the benchmark for luxury accommodation in Manila,” Martin Rinck, president, Hilton Worldwide, Asia Pacific.
Poised to be the venue of choice for business, social events, and weddings, Conrad Manila offers four contemporary event halls and two sophisticated ballrooms, spanning more than 4,000 square metres, which are fitted with state-of-the-art audio-visual technology.
For intimate al fresco parties, guests can also opt for The Veranda, an outdoor garden space overlooking the cityscape.
At Conrad Manila, all 347 guest rooms and suites are specially designed with an intuitive technology.
Upon sensing motion in the room, the air conditioning switches from energy-saving mode to cool, the curtains in the room will automatically open with ambient lighting set to match the time of the day.
Guests can instantly feel at home with a 42-inch flat screen HDTV with an IPTV menu, Wi-Fi and wired Internet access, Nespresso machine, Bluetooth-enabled entertainment technology and hydrotherapy rain showers.
Suites and executive rooms offer picturesque bay or city views, with access to the Executive Lounge, and bathrooms that feature in-mirrored TV for an uninterrupted entertainment experience.
Located on the third level of the hotel is the infinity swimming pool, inspired by the pristine coastal seas of the Philippines with its coral shape.
Guests may also slip to the 24-hour Fitness Centre or the Conrad Spa, which offers a variety of locally inspired treatments using organic ingredients.
The spa has six treatment rooms with soaking tubs, a private sauna, and steam facilities.
