So the rumours are true: the Mandarin Oriental, Manila on Makati Avenue is about to close later this year.
While the Mandarin Oriental, Manila has played an important role in the business and tourism market since 1976, the property’s infrastructure and existing facilities are no longer in keeping with the brand’s well-recognized, luxury hospitality offering.
But worry not—a new Mandarin Oriental, Manila, is scheduled to open in 2020.
To be developed by Ayalaland Hotels & Resorts, the new luxury 275-room hotel will be part of a mixed-use development branded and managed by the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group.
The new Mandarin Oriental, Manila will feature spacious rooms and a range of elegant and contemporary facilities, including a variety of restaurants and a signature spa. More information will be released as soon as details are confirmed.
“Mandarin Oriental, Manila has been recognized as one of the city’s most iconic hotels since its opening in 1976, and the Group wishes to express its sincere appreciation to all colleagues for their legendary service and support over the years. All hotel colleagues have been informed of the forthcoming closure and will receive full and fair severance payment and appropriate professional guidance,” said Torsten van Dullemen, General Manager of the hotel.
