Though it stands amid Manila’s concrete jungle, this urban escape teems with tropical greenery. Named after the acronym for Epifanio de los Santos Avenue—the nearby site of two historically significant revolutions—the hotel is just moments away from an impressive brass monument of De los Santos, a noted historian, scholar, andpatron of the arts. Today, Asian art and earth-toned furniture are on display in each of the 632 rooms, though the hotel’s Tower Wing will undergo a major facelift in 2013, revamping more than 400 rooms to include adjustable mood lighting, glass desks, and distinctly Filipino touches such as mother-of-pearl finishes. Visit the hotel’s consistent crowd-pleaser—the Bakeshop—for local treats such as the signature Ensaymada, a butter- and sugar-filled pastry that’s a favorite dessert of locals too.
Room to Book:Deluxe Pool View rooms have views of the hotel’s lagoon-shaped pool—the largest in the city.
Battle your jet lag at the hotel’s CHI spa with a traditional Filipino Hilot massage: an intoxicating blend of warm, virgin coconut oil and a time-honored massage technique that typically begins with a ritual chant.
