The Conrad Manila: Beautiful, Luxurious, Affordable

The Conrad Manila
Beautiful, Luxurious, Affordable 

We were on our way to China and we needed a place to stay 
in Manila for our flight the next day and my family  chose to 
stay  at the Conrad. We arrived very early in the morning,

…check in was a breeze, the people at the front desk 
were courteous and friendly, who informed us that 
our rooms would not be ready until noontime,

…and they offered to let us stay at the executive lounge.


Our room was in the executive level and when they
learned that we haven’t had breakfast yet, we were
offered us to partake of the breakfast buffet for free.

That was gracious and we were touched
by their hospitality and extra generosity.

The Diplomat Suite 

We were having our snacks at the executive lounge
when the staff told us that our room was ready and
provided us with our keys shortly before noontime.


This would be our home in Manila for the next two days
as we apply for a Chinese Visa for our upcoming vacation.


Our suite, a The Diplomat Suite  located at the
6th  floor was  very spacious and very beautiful.


It had beautiful large living room
executed in natural earth tones.


There was a very comfortable huge sofa
which could function as an extra bed,


…and a cozy lounge sofa where one can relax
and get comfy while reading or watching TV.


There is a huge working and study table,


…where there was a tray of
Davao Chocolates sampler.



There was also a complimentary
Tamaraw stuffed toy for the kids.


There is a huge flat screen TV,
with superb audio/video systems.


On the room portal is a Minibar,



…with small fully loaded refrigerator,


… and a high end coffee maker.



The bedroom was also very spacious and
just like the living room it exudes with
understated luxury and timeless elegance.   

It had huge king size bed,


…and a built- in window side day bed that could
serve either as a lounge sofa or another extra bed.


Just like the living room it also had
a huge wide- screen LCD flat TV
with topnotch audio/video systems.


The bedroom had wrap around panoramic windows,


...that extends up to the living room. with the 
view hotel’s well manicured gardens.


The best feature of this room are the toilet and bath.


There was one at by the entrance,
that also serves as a washroom.


…and it connected by a spacious walk in closets, to the 
second  toilet and bath that serves as the main bathroom,
and could also be accessed from the bedroom

The walk in closet was well equipped, that had 
extra blankets and pillows, electronic safe,
clothes ironing and pressing equipment,

…and home accessories to make
the guest’s stay more comfortable.

It also had and had a massive area where
we could keep our numerous huge suitcases.


The main bathroom was very luxurious
 provided with plush amenities,

…and signature toiletries.

There was a gorgeous bathtub at the rear end,

…lying near a panoramic windows with an awesome
view of the  well manicured verdant roof top garden.


It has a topnotch rain shower
and in-shower steam room.  


The lavatory also serves as a vanity area.


One unique feature of this bathroom that amused 

us no end was the chameleon- like flat screen TV,


…camouflaging  as a part of
vanity mirror when turned off.

This room had four landline phones, 
 the first one at study in the living room,

…the second on at the bedside,     


the third one of the fist toilet by the living room,


…and another one in the main toilet.


We were very happy with the very fast
and complimentary Wi Fi connection.


Guests would never run out of places to visit,
as The Conrad is located at the Mall of Asia Complex
right above a SMaison, an gorgeous upscale mall,


…and also interconnected to the Mall of Asia,
considered one of the biggest malls in Asia. 


It made our shopping for a new suitcase  convenient   
as the mall’s Samsonite store was just a walk away.



The Conrad had a fabulous
resort- like swimming pool,


...a spa,



…and a well equipped gym,   



...that had a view of the  swimming 
pool and other leisure facilities.

Across the hotel is a theme park located
at famed Manila Bay’s seaside boardwalk.



The Lounge 

The beautiful Lounge at the lobby level is Conrad’s main
in- house restaurant where the buffet breakfast is served.



My family had a dinner on our first day
here and the restaurant did not disappoint,


…as it a  massive buffet of
local and international dishes. 


The Executive Lounge 

Our room was at the executive level that had
an exclusive free to the  Executive Lounge.

The Executive Lounge, offers a more intimate
and personalized breakfast buffet and an awesome 
alternative the busier and more chaotic Lounge. 


In Room Dining 

We had an early morning flight schedule
so we ordered an in- room breakfast, as
the breakfast buffet was not open at time yet.


The food was good and the service was excellent.


There are also several excellent upscale in house

restaurants at the Conrad like China Blue,


…and BRU an awesome coffee shop. 


Being located at the top of SMaison, and connected
 to the SM Mall of Asia, guests would never run out of
 choices to some of the best restaurants in Metro Manila.  


The Conrad Manila is a beautiful hotel in and out.
Owned and managed by Hilton Hotels, equipped with
top notch amenities, it is probably one of he the most  
beautiful hotels in the Phillipines and the world as well.


From the stunning portal at the concierge,


…to the lobby with a spectacular
view of the famous Manila Bay,


…to the well designed spacious suite rooms,

…it is a gorgeous hotel that
offers 5-Star hotel experience,


…for families traveling on a budget, looking for a
 well-appointed  yet affordable  accommodation.
