Most Romantic Hotels in Metro Manila

View all Metro Manila Hotels

Manila's most romantic hotels include a magnificent grande dame with a century-old history, a luxury hotel two blocks from Manila Bay, and a truly unique water-themed property. See all of our picks for the most romantic hotels in Manila, Makati, and Mandaluyong.

  1. This is Manila‚Äôs most iconic luxury property. The 510-room hotel wows guests with world-class service, opulent Filipiniana-style interiors, and top-notch amenities -- wonderful spa, modern fitness center, large pool with a swim-up bar, and four outstanding restaurants (including the sumptuous Champagne Room). Guest rooms are some of the most decadent in Manila. They have flat-screen TVs, minibars, free Wi-Fi, as well as large marble bathrooms with separate showers and soaking tubs.

  2. Part of the world-renowned Fairmont Hotels chain, this property has a similar vibe to its sister hotels around the world, with a quiet, upscale atmosphere, world-class service and elegant decor throughout. All the high-end amenities expected of a hotel in this price range and category are present, including a wonderful spa complete with hair and nail services, a high-tech fitness center (think: cardio machines with Internet access), a relaxing pool with bar service, and several dining options. Rooms are elegant (if a tad plain), and upscale bathrooms have separate showers and tubs as well as Le Labo toiletries. 

  3. With lush tropical gardens and a resort-like list of amenities, gorgeous Edsa Shangri-La is a quiet, relaxing oasis in corporate Mandaluyong. Its 632 rooms -- featuring stylish, elegant decor in earth tones, and top-notch amenities -- are some of the most attractive in town. With four restaurants, a world-class spa, a wonderful fitness center, and a beautiful freeform pool, it is possible for guests to never have to leave the property. Plus, it has a few kid-friendly amenities, a rarity in Manila. Just note that most historic sights are a drive away.

  4. Housed in a tall tower with three exterior glass elevators, the 236-room Pan Pacific is one of the top hotels in Manila. Common spaces are luxurious and classy, with wood-panelling, delicate crystal chandeliers, and gleaming marble floors. Rooms are spacious, comfortable, and upscale, with flat-screen TVs, minibars, and free Wi-Fi. (Pillow menus, free bottled water, and evening turndown service are nice extras.) High-end, roomy bathrooms have rainfall showers and separate soaking tubs with flat-screen TVs. The hotel is known for its outstanding service and great amenities, including several restaurants and bars (including a rooftop lounge) and a small pool with whirlpool. 

  5. The 147-room H2O is an upscale hotel offering the one-of-a-kind experience of sleeping with the fishes (literally). Most rooms have striking views of Manila Bay, but Aqua Rooms are the highlight here, with huge wall-to-wall aquariums full of fish and jellyfish. Bay Rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows offering wonderful panoramic views of Manila Bay and the sunset. And all rooms have flat-screen TVs, minibars, free Wi-Fi, and open bathrooms with rainfall showers (upgrade to a suite for a separate tub or a hot tub). There are also a nice fitness center, relaxing spa, stylish lounge, and so-so restaurant. The property is in the same complex as the family-friendly Ocean Park, which means it can get loud with kids running around.
