Conference hotels in Manila – immerse yourself in a city of contrasts
Manila is the capital of the island nation of the Philippines. It is also the name of a metropolitan region in which Manila the city is just one of 17 others. Manila City is home to around 1.8 million people, while the population of the entire Manila region is over 12 million.
The megacity of Manila is located on the main island, Luzon, on the eastern shores of Manila Bay, a natural harbour of sorts. Its shape enables it to protect Manila’s actual port. At the south-eastern end of the bay, for example, is the freshwater lake Laguna de Bay. It is the largest in the Philippines, and opens out into Manila Bay through the Pasig River.
Via its “Manila Ninoy Aquino International Airport ” Manila is very well connected to the rest of the world. Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways, Emirates, Etihad and Qatar Airways all operate to Manila from Germany, with stops in the respective countries. The city centre is only a 45-minute shuttle ride from Manila airport, and this is where most of the conference hotels are located. Manila has excellent infrastructure, with public transport – from buses to the Light Rail Transit monorails to the colourful mini buses known as the “Jeepneys” – making it easy to get from A to B.
Conference hotels - place to meet
The range of conference hotels reflects the size of the city. The Marriott Manila, for example, offers elegant event spaces, and, with 324 rooms, a spa, and several top-class restaurants, leaves nothing left to be desired. It is also ideally placed for excursions into the pulsating district around Resorts World near the airport. The Shangri-La at Fort, housed in a 250-m-high tower, promises dynamic luxury in the heart of the city. It is one of the tallest buildings in the Philippines. Many of the 576 luxurious rooms and suites provide breathtaking views of the vibrant city, while the modern meeting rooms can cater to up to 1,200 people in the elegant Grand Ballroom. Moreover, a further 19 additional multi-purpose meeting rooms are available. Manila is without doubt the hotspot of the Philippines and definitely the ideal venue for your next conference, no matter how big or small.
