Makati Shangri-La Manila

Top choice hotel in Manila
Image by

With a soaring lobby lounge punctuated by floor-to-ceiling bay windows and sequoia-sized columns, the Shangri-La wins the award for Makati’s most stunning interior. The rooms are masterpieces of originality, all swoops and swerves, coves and curved lines. You could throw a party on the California king beds. There are two tennis courts and a recently renovated swimming pool and bar.

Walk-in guests can swim for P1000. Service is impeccable, and the Sage Bar downstairs does great steaks. Weekends often see rates dip below P10,000 per night.
