Recently awarded the Best in Hotel Development, Best Hotel Architectural Design, and the Best in Hotel Interior Design at the fourth annual Philippines Property Awards, Conrad Manila’s distinctive architecture is inspired by the shipping vessels that ply the bay. The hotel sits atop the two-level S Maison, a high-end retail complex, and has direct connections via the walking bridges to SMX Convention Center, the country’s largest convention space, and is adjacent to SM Mall of Asia, one of the country’s biggest malls, as well as Mall of Asia Arena, a 16,000-seater indoor stadium where international shows, concerts, and major sporting events are held.
Positioned 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 sqm, which are fitted with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment. For al fresco parties, guests can also book Conrad Hotel’s The Veranda, an outdoor garden space overlooking the cityscape.
Significantly located on the third floor of the hotel is a coral shaped infinity pool—inspired by the pristine coastal seascapes of the Philippines.
The hotel also has six restaurants and lounges, which include a coffee bar, a pool bar, and an in-room dining service led by Executive Chef Thomas Jakobi
