There’s so much to love about June in Manila. Summer’s technically over and we’re just glad to bid the scorching summer heat goodbye. Even better, we’re looking at two holidays coming up this month! You better start planning—book a hotel, pick a restaurant. After all, nobody wants to waste a holiday, much less two!

Independence Day – June 12

One word. Freedom! It’s a day to celebrate our freedom, all thanks to our brave Filipino heroes; and a day of freedom from work and school as well. Watch out for a big Independence Day Sale on airfares and hotels from trips and staycations you’re planning for the rest of the year. You might also want to check out nearby malls and online stores for great finds and buys on this holiday.

Eid al-Fitr – June 15

We’re going to have to wait until the evening of June 14 to verify the date of this holiday, as it falls on the day of the first sighting of the new moon. Muslims all over the world celebrate Eid al-Fitr which marks the end of Ramadan. In the Philippines, Eid al-Fitr is considered a special non-working holiday. And since that falls on a Friday, we’re in for another long weekend! Have a relaxing staycation in the heart of the city. Catch the best hotel deal in Manila with special weekend rates at Discovery Suites in Ortigas.

What a way to welcome the rainy season! We may be staying indoors more often, but that only means a whole lot of unwinding and relaxation. Soon enough, June will fly by and we’re halfway through 2018. Make the most of it.

  • COZY AND HOMEY. This was our 6th or 7th stay and the staff is still very accommodating. The location is strategic being right beside convenience stores, mall, and restaurants… I can say we plan to make it a habit to greet the new year here.”

  • OUTSTANDING AND FRIENDLY SERVICE. The service at the facility is outstanding from arrival to departure. Any thing you ask for is done promptly and with a smile. The gym is pretty good with all the requirements of a hotel gym, with sauna, personal trainers and group classes.”

  • FABULOUS LOCATION AND SUPERB STAFF. The suites themselves are excellent with modern self catering facilities, fabulous bathrooms, comfy beds and exceptionally clean. The location is great for the CBD and restaurants and malls are all close by.”

  • COMFORTABLE HOME AWAY FROM HOME. I stayed in the Discovery suites hotel for 7 weeks in March and April while in Manila for work. And it was very easy for me to start calling it home after a few days! The location is great – podium mall across the street, Starbucks next door and across the street, megamall and Robinson’s galleria only a couple of blocks away.”
