Enjoy Luxurious Stays and Pleasurable Dining at Dusit Thani Manila
When in Manila and yearning to experience a taste of luxury and splendor, we highly suggest you spend a well deserved relaxing stay at Dusit Thani Manila.
There is no doubt that Dusit Thani Manila remains to be a notable name when it comes to 5 star hotels in the country, so Frank and I decided to feature it here on WheninManila.com as our response to the many readers who have been asking us if we would recommend Dusit Thani Manila.
Expect to step into a whole new dimension when you arrive at Dusit Thani Manila as you are greeted by its larger than life golden pillars, grand spiral staircase and impressive chandeliers. The lobby’s grandeur leaves everyone at awe with its magnificence. Upon seeing this site, I knew I was in the right place and time! =)
At the reception, I was assisted by Mosh during my check-in. He was very helpful and accommodating with all my queries and even told me not to worry for he will personally do follow-ups for the confirmations I needed. I was really happy with his kindness!
Right after receiving my key-card, I couldn’t help but gaze over the delectable confections I saw at Dusit Gourmet…..
I was lured closer when I saw these delightfully designed cakes and to my surprise, the prices for their items were very affordable. The staff even told me that they offer it at 50% off daily every 8pm!
time to go up!
Our Junior Suite…..
We stayed at a chic Jr Suite complete with all the amenities and facilities which luxury hotels offer such as:
- Well-appointed, spacious rooms
- Complimentary unlimited broadband use
- LCD flat screen television with on-demand video facilities
- Adjustable reading light and centralised bed side switch controls
- Coffee and tea making facilities
- In-room safe
the bathroom was equally luxurious of course…
This French luxury beauty brand is what I usually see whenever we stay at high-end hotels.
If you’re wondering on how it’s pronounced, it’s simply “LOC-SEE-TAN”
Coffee and tea making facilities
The Jr Suite had a California King bed for addedcomfort. If you’re wondering how big it was, it’s like 2 queen beds joined together.
The view from our room
Dusit Thani Manila has been a well known brand in the hotel industry for many years, but I never thought that aside from providing guests with elegant stays, Dusit Thani Manila is also rich with gastronomical treasures awaiting to be discovered!

Their warm and friendly manager Ma’am April graciously invited us to dine in one of their private rooms to enjoy an intimate lunch. Ms April recommended their specialties and we took the opportunity to take photos of every dish…

Afternoon by the Pool
After that highly satisfying lunch at UMU, Frank and I went around the hotel for a while then later on decided to spend the rest of the afternoon by the pool to relax.
There is something which I find special about this pool that words could not express. It looked simple yet very homey, no wonder kids and the “kids at heart” spend hours in this place.
We enjoyed the place a lot that we stayed for more than 2 hours! The pool only had a depth of 4 feet, making it very safe for the not-so-good swimmers like me. The water was also warm and soothing. After this experience, both of us agreed that it was one of our most pleasurable dips.
