Manila’s Hottest Address
Whether you desire a weekend getaway, a dinner celebration, or a grand function, Grand Hyatt Manila really is the place to be, discovers Esslin Terrighena.
The Grand Hyatt Manila is reminiscent of the luxury grand dame hotels of old: everything is made easy so that you can focus on the important things in life. As the tallest structure in Manila, the luxurious Grand Hyatt combines world-class hospitality and amenities with stunning views over the city, making for your ultimate home-away-from-home. Every space you enter sets a stimulating, refreshing scene to not only absorb, but importantly, interact with and transform.
Located in vibrant Bonifacio Global City, you can spend your days soaking up the lively culture and find blissful relaxation at the Illume Spa with therapy treatments that calm your body and mind; or work up a sweat at the Fitness Centre, before cooling off with a cocktail by the pool. The Grand Hyatt Manila also lets you go on a delectable culinary journey with authentic dishes and thoughtfully crafted menus. The show kitchens and live-cooking stations allow for guests not only to watch their food being prepared, but actively take part in the creation process.
Perched at the top of the Grand Hyatt Manila, The Peak offers a truly unique 360-degree bird’s-eye view of Manila. Here you can indulge in some of the finest and rarest whiskies, and enjoy a juicy steak grilled to perfection. If you crave entertainment, The Peak is also the ideal place to sing along to the upbeat tunes at the music bar or to sip your favourite drink under the stars on one of the open-air terraces. The highest point of Manila, this bar and grill is an unparalleled experience of discovery, allowing you to capture the city from a completely new angle.
With over 2,281sqm of elegant event space, the Grand Hyatt also provides the perfect backdrop for any type of gathering. Its pearl? The jewellery-box-inspired Grand Ballroom with floor-to-ceiling windows, lavish soft carpets and an open show kitchen that can mesmerise with performances and mouth-watering delights. The space can seat up to 1,550 guests and is ideal for banquets, shows, workshops, exhibitions, and those events that really deserve an all-out celebration. Again, the key word is transformation: Watch as the Grand Hyatt Manila makes your inspired ideas come alive.
If you’re thinking of spending more time in the capital, you will find a perfect sanctuary from the hustle and bustle of the city in the Grand Hyatt Manila’s brand-new luxury apartments. Choose from the spacious two-, three-, and four-bedroom apartments and make them your very own safe haven.
What really makes the Grand Hyatt Manila stand out from all the rest? Its design is entwined with the heartbeat of the Filipino culture; from the water fountains in the reception area, inspired by the traditional rice terraces of Ifugao, to the walls of The Peak, decorated with traditional Filipino tattoo patterns, Filipino art and culture touches every space and room and that is what gives this luxurious hotel its true charm.
So, the next time you’re in Manila – for business, for pleasure, or for celebrations – come and savour all the delights the Grand Hyatt Manila has to offer.
