Raffles, Manila, The Philippines


Literally going head-to-head with the Fairmont (it shares the same spa and pool deck) the Raffles is the Filipino import of the infamous Singapore luxury brand – complete with its own Long Bar of Singapore Sling fame. Our suite was just one of 32 and was huge, with all the historical touches for which the brand is known – white marble, wooden floors and a romantic, standalone, roll-top bath, not to mention a butler to draw it.


At OutThere, we believe in boundless travel. But we understand that some destinations can pose challenges to travellers that complicate visiting them. We advise all visitors to inform themselves about local legislation and customs, and to work with a trusted travel provider in order to ensure a safe and pleasant holiday.
