A Luxe Stay at Sofitel Philippines Plaza Manila’s Imperial Residence

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Manila, Philippines – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Offering discerning guests a chance to delve into the often turbulent politics and lavish lifestyles of Manila’s high society, the Sofitel Philippines Plaza Manila has created the sumptuous Imperial Residence from a space once dreamed up by Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos to host VIP guests. The 6,200-square-foot expanse is located on the 11th floor, making it a mansion in the skies above the capital, and features five lavishly appointed suites, which can be booked separately or as a whole. Fashioned by renowned Japanese interior design firm Spin Design Studio, the regal suite is dressed in deep earth tones punctuated by hints of maroon and gold. Mother-of-pearl inlaid doors, capiz light fixtures, custom leather wall paneling and grand sculptures add to the luxe appeal. Ensconced in lavish comfort, you’ll enjoy a ten-seat formal dining room, kitchen with Miele appliances, spacious living area with 72-inch TV and a wraparound balcony with views across Manila Bay. All this, plus access to a personal shopper and private chef, and the option to convert one of the suites to a spa, gym, yoga studio or games den, makes this home away from home hard to leave. But when you do, it’ll be from the hotel’s helipad (US$6,800 a night).
