The Manila Hotel, built in 1912, is referred to as the “Grand Dame” known for its grandeur and history. And throughout the years, its story keeps getting better and better.
One of the things that The Manila Hotel is known is for is its “legendary” MacArthur Suite named after General Douglas MacArthur, an American five-star general and field marshal of the Philippine Army. He served as Chief of Staff of the United States Army during the 1930s.

The island resort offers 29 rooms that offer inspiring view of the surrounding ocean. Its tranquil and natural surroundings offer a great escape from the hassles of urban living. One is lulled by gentle waves and fresh ocean breeze as it rustles through abundant tall mangroves. The lagoon by the beach is perfect for lazing and a peaceful alternative to the sea.
