Being a rapidly developing area, Metro Manila is thriving with new establishments left and right. There’s always a new restaurant to try, a new mall to visit, or a new attraction to visit. In fact, this rapid growth led the megacity to be ranked as the 19th most dynamic city amongst 134 metro areas around the world by investment management firm Jones Lang Lasalle (JLL). Together with its booming economy, Metro Manila’s tourism is also sprawling. And with the high demand of reliable places to stay, hotel developments have also been speedy.
The following are some of the hotel developments you need to look out for in 2018 and even in the next year to come.

It will be located right in the heart of Arca South, Taguig which is labelled as the “new Bonifacio Global City.” In keeping with the aesthetic of Seda Hotel brand, Seda Arca South will have a mix of local Filipino ambience with contemporary design. It will also be conveniently built on top of an Ayala mall and will be equipped with 265 hotel rooms.

The Westin Manila Sonata Place is set to welcome 2019 with a bang by opening on the very first day of the year. Westin Resorts’ “stay well” advocacy is also promised in this hotel development with every detail of every suite curated carefully and with a priority on the mental well-being of their guests. With amenities such as fitness studios, spa services, and thoughtfully-designed workspaces, every guest’s wellness could be rejuvenated and replenished after his or her stay.
After closing its doors last 2014 after more than 20 years in operation, the iconic Mandarin Oriental Hotel Manila is set to reopen in 2020 under Ayala Land Hotels & Resorts. Now simply called Mandarin Hotel, it will have an 8,000 square meter mall at its lowest floors and will be surrounded by a 39-story office building with 36 floors allotted for office space, 4 floors to retail outlets, and 5 levels for basement parking. The hotel will have 275 rooms in total.
Not only will these hotels help boost Manila’s tourism further, but they might also become famous landmarks that the country will be known for. With hotel developments like these and many more for the years to come, Metro Manila remains to be a place the world should look out for.
