The Peninsula Manila is one of my favorite places for events and staycation before the pandemic. I actually miss hanging out there and sitting in the lobby drink my tea and watch people pass by. I miss traveling so much and I ache for a break from being stuck at home. But it’s more of a want than a need so I will keep aching until this pandemic is controlled if not end.
But not everyone has the choice to stay at home especially the essential workers like first responders, those who work in pharmaceuticals and BPOs, doctors and nurses, people working in construction and food manufacturing and farming.
Despite these challenging times, we know that connecting and maintaining key business relationships are more important than ever to keep your business running smoothly and keep our economy going. If we need to travel for work and keep business relationships intact, we might want to stay away from our homes just to make sure we are not a carrier of the virus and won’t infect our family. You may be wondering, what’s the safest hotel for essential business workers to stay in in the Makati Central Business District (CBD)?
Answer? The Peninsula Manila.
The only accredited staycation hotel in the Makati CBD
The Peninsula Manila is accredited by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) and the Department of Tourism to serve as a staycation hotel and is currently the only accredited staycation hotel in the CBD. “And only staycation hotels are allowed to take in essential business workers,” says Loleth So, The Peninsula Manila Director of Sales and Marketing.
A warm welcome, a complimentary Rapid Antigen Test for one, guest rooms and public areas designed with the health and well-being of guests, a flexible 24-hour stay, a daily in-room breakfast for two, and much more are just some of the amenities and programs the hotel has prepared for essential business workers who book the “Get Back to Business” room package. Room rates start at P 6,300, inclusive of taxes.
“The top priority of The Peninsula Manila is the health and safety of our guests and employees. Contactless options, including online reservations, check-in and check-out, payments, and room service delivery; stringent room cleaning; guests and employees required to wear face coverings; and practicing social distancing are but the tip of the iceberg of our best practices that create and ensure a safe environment for all our guests and employees,” adds Ms. So.
The hotel has also created the position of Director of Safety who is responsible for ensuring that the hotel’s high hygiene standards are met, not only in its guest rooms, public spaces, restaurants, and bars, spas, and gyms but also in back-of-house areas, fleets and any space where guests and employees are present.
Guests know that when they come to The Peninsula Manila, they can feel confident the moment they step through its doors that, in addition to the exceptional service they will experience, the environment is kept to the exacting standards for which the hotel has been known the past 45 years, especially the areas of health and hygiene.
No wonder The Peninsula Manila is the recipient of the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) Safe Travels Stamp from the Department of Tourism, one of the first three Philippine hotels to receive the world’s first-ever global safety and hygiene stamp. This is only awarded to globally-recognized businesses that have made it their priority to adopt globally standardized health and hygiene protocols.
