The only 5-star luxury resort hotel in Manila, Sofitel Philippine Plaza is an iconic property standing amid an expansive tropical setting. Known for its spectacular Manila Bay sunsets, the hotel continues to attract both local and international travelers alike with its signature brand of Filipino hospitality and the French joie de vivre that is reflected in its rituals in food and wine, and varied entertainment offerings.
Sofitel Philippine Plaza is an iconic hotel built in 1976, a structural masterpiece created by National Artist for Architecture Leandro Locsin, while the hotel’s grounds, resort pool and gardens were designed by Ildefonso P. Santos, another National Artist. Boasting of spectacular views of the Manila Bay and lush landscapes and greenery, the exquisite tropical setting within the city is unrivalled. Newly renovated with minimalist interiors, breathtaking views and traditional touches of local décor using capiz shells and coconut inlays make the muted elegance and luxurious details of the famous hotel by the bay a sight to behold.
