The Peninsula Hotels are all about providing their guests with romantic experiences – culture, excitement, adventure, art, entertainment, history and more. They do this through the Peninsula Academy, their way of offering tailored programmes for adults and children alike – in typical Peninsula style.
We recently stumbled across the Peninsula Academy’s plans for guests staying in The Peninsula Manila. Manila is a jewel of the Philippines, a city ready to be experienced. For couples with an eye for the perfect getaway for two or honeymoon in the Phillipines, check out these activities you can get up to at The Peninsula Manila.
Spirit of Corregidor: World War II History by Helicopter and Land
Fly through the air via helicopter from the hotel to a guided tour, upon a romantic 1940s era tram no less, of the major WWII sites. Follow this with Champagne and canapes and another romantic, breathtaking helicopter ride designed to show off some of the Philippines’ natural beauty. Finish with a delicious garden lunch at the acclaimed Antonio’s restaurant.
Art in the HIlls: 27 Years of Philippines Contemporary Art
This one is for our art-loving couples. Explore Manila’s Silangan Gardens and Pinto Art Museum on this tour by The Peninsula Academy. If names like Ronald Ventura and WInner Jumalon excite you, then Dr Joven Cuanang’s collection will be sure to delight.
Manila Design: Experience Philippine Art, Design and Fashion
This programme offers guest the opprotunity to meet with three of Manila’s style gurus: Albert Avellana (art), Eric Paras (interior design) and Jesus “Jojie” Lloren (fashion). Vist their galleries and ateliers and if you choose, you can buy and/or commission some of your very own artwork, couture, and limited-edition furniture. The perfect memento of your romantic getaway or honeymoon!
These are just a taste of the activities that couples can enjoy while staying at The Peninsula Manila; for more click here.
