Even from afar, the Rizal Park Hotel already exudes the rustic charm of Old Manila.

Inaugurated only last July and still in the final phase of completion, the hotel used to be the old Army and Navy Club of Manila, an exclusive club for American servicemen who were in the Philippines during the country’s colonization.

Developed by Oceanville and Spa Corp., the hotel boasts of 110 rooms, a restaurant, spa and casino facilities for guests.
