Bayleaf Intramuros, Manila, The Philippines

Inside Manila’s historic walled city, we found this contemporary boutique, slightly out of place, but offering luxury in the heart of the heritage zone. The hotel’s staff were a friendly, charming bunch and we felt extremely welcome in this great base to explore the city. An early dinner and drinks on the hotel’s Skydeck was a highlight, a relaxed vibe to take in the sunset-bathed skyline backed by some sultry, live Pinoy music.
