Sofitel Philippine Plaza is an iconic hotel that has housed royalty, celebrity, and heads of state. Opened in 1976, it is a structural masterpiece created by National Artist for Architecture Leandro Locsin, while the hotel’s grounds, resort pool, and gardens were designed by Ildefonso P. Santos, another National Artist. Boasting of spectacular views of the Manila Bay and lush landscapes and greenery, the exquisite tropical setting within the city is unrivalled. Minimalist interiors, breathtaking views, and traditional touches of local décor using capiz shells and coconut inlay make the muted elegance and luxurious detail of the famous hotel by the bay a sight to behold.
