The Peninsula Manila, a five-star luxury hotel in Makati, was recognized as one of the world’s best hotels in the Travel+Leisure’s World’s Best Awards Survey 2021.
Palawan was also hailed as one of the best islands both in the Asia Pacific and the world. It ranked 19th out of 100 with a score of 88.63 in the world category and fifth in Asia Pacific.
The Peninsula Manila, on the other hand, ranked 25th with a score of 98.4 out of the 100 hotels voted as best by the travel magazine’s readers based on facilities, location, service, food, and overall value.
It also placed fifth on the list of Top 15 Asia City Hotels, the only Filipino hotel to make it on the much-coveted lists.
Travel+Leisure said the properties that made the cut in 2021 “all found innovative ways to deliver exceptional hospitability to their guests” while the standouts in the best islands list “suggest a renewed appreciation” for places that offer unparalleled natural beauty and fewer crowds. (PNA)
