Colonial churches, historic mansions and the cobalt-coloured Manila Bay can be found in this city in Metro Manila. Some may know it as the home of Ninoy Aquino International Airport, while others will know it for its growing art scene, glittering casinos and celebrity chefs. The casinos have brought with them equally glamorous luxury hotels, but you’ll also find boutique hideaways and microtels from which you can visit barangay La Huerta, home to the famous Dampa seafood market where they cook the catch of the day in front of you. All of this and more – bookable on Culture Trip.

Nobu Hotel Manila, for high-end luxury

Inky-black calligraphy-style murals decorate the walls of the Japanese-inspired suites at the Nobu Hotel Manila, and Natura Bissé amenities adorn the bathrooms. The luxury continues in the Nobu restaurant, where bottles of Dom Pérignon are served alongside king crab tempura and wagyu gyoza. If you’re not in a hurry, visit the spa and book the Nobu Spa Trilogy, a two-and-a-half-hour treatment that includes a coffee scrub using the famed Filipino barako coffee; or take in the views of the metropolis from the outdoor pool.

Hyatt Regency Manila, City of Dreams, for its glittering facade

The glittering gold façade of the Hyatt Regency looks right at home in the City of Dreams. Within the two towers you’ll find three different suites. If you love the water, choose a Hyatt Pool Villa, which is on the same floor as the pool and just a short stroll to a lounger, and has a deep stand-alone tub. Watch the chefs cook up a storm in the restaurant or enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the cosy lounge.

You’ll find the elegant monochrome Romulo Cafe and tropical Snack Bar in-house, and if you’re still hungry, don’t worry – each room has its own mini kitchen.

You are guaranteed blue skies every day when you book a room at RedDoorz Plus in the gated community of BF Homes. Not only are fluffy clouds painted on the ceilings in the suites and one of the restaurants, but the second restaurant comes with a glass roof. The hotel has a playful feel, from the fairytale-like bedrooms to a restaurant bedecked in gilt furniture that looks as if it’s been plucked straight out of a French palace. No matter what the inspiration, this boutique hideaway is sure to leave you in a good mood.

Conrad Manila, for showstopping views

Talk about a lobby with a view – you’ll find it hard to tear yourself away from the oversize floor-to-ceiling windows that look out over Manila Bay. Within your suite you’ll also find views of either the water or the city skyline. The three restaurants make the most of the views, too, including China Blue by celebrity chef Jereme Leung, which is filled with glittering blue chandeliers and also has private dining rooms.

Within each suite at the hotel there is a queen and standard bed, as well as a mini kitchen area so you can rustle up some bedtime snacks. Make a splash in the hotel pool or jacuzzi, or Netflix and chill back in your suite, thanks to the free wifi.

You don’t need to walk far to the casino at this resort, as it’s right in your hotel. But before you part with your money, you have to leave your suite, and that could be tough here, with a five-star rating from the Forbes Travel Guide for two consecutive years. Once you see your room, you’ll understand why. The Chairman’s Suite, for one, features paintings by renowned Filipino artists, a karaoke room and a baby grand piano.

Microtel by Wyndham Mall of Asia, for central convenience
