Old- and new-world Philippines collide in this beautiful compound of converted 1950s townhouses. This was our true oasis in the city, completely different to every other property we stayed in – low-rise, quiet, stunningly designed to a 20th-century vintage aesthetic – brimming with chic nostalgia and colonial interior design touches, but contemporised for the modern traveller. Complete and utter win.
