A fter 17 years in the hos­pi­tal­ity field, As­to­ria Ho­tels and Re­sorts has made a name for it­self as the epit­ome of world­class ac­com­mo­da­tion in the Philip­pines. The brand has be­come syn­ony­mous with el­e­gance and cre­ativ­ity as it con­tin­ues to de­liver on its prom­ise of un­for­get­table stays.

Whether it’s a sanc­tu­ary in the mid­dle of a busy com­mer­cial district or a vi­brant sea­side es­cape, each of As­to­ria’s six dis­tinct prop­er­ties thrives on the beauty of the Philip­pines and guests’ var­ied needs and in­ter­ests. Ev­ery struc­ture, room lay­out, and floor plan con­veys a dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence.

As a bril­liant col­lab­o­ra­tion with award-win­ning in­te­rior de­sign firm Ate­lier Al­mario and ar­chi­tec­ture group Gal­lego & As­so­ci­ates, each space was built and brought to life ac­cord­ingly. Bank­ing on skills and ex­per­tise, the As­to­ria brand has time and again been com­mu­ni­cated through a high re­gard for ex­cep­tional lo­cal de­sign.

The group’s first two ho­tels are both strate­gi­cally lo­cated in cor­po­rate cen­tres; mak­ing As­to­ria Plaza in Or­ti­gas and As­to­ria Green­belt in Makati ac­ces­si­ble for busi­ness en­gage­ments and leisurely en­coun­ters. The first is a mod­ern take on busi­ness chic, set­ting the stan­dard for ur­ban liv­ing as it com­bines res­i­den­tial suites with a deluxe ho­tel. The sec­ond city ho­tel fea­tures dark-stained wood and soft light­ing, set­ting the mood for com­fort and re­lax­ation with­out com­pro­mis­ing on so­phis­ti­ca­tion.

From lux­u­ri­ous ur­ban dwellings in the city, the As­to­ria brand trav­els to­gether with its guests to some of the Philip­pine’s beloved va­ca­tion spots. Set on the world-fa­mous beaches of the newly re­opened is­land of Boracay is As­to­ria Cur­rent. The re­sort exudes a vi­va­cious and colour­ful aes­thetic, which draws in­spi­ra­tion from the nearby wa­ter sport ac­tiv­i­ties and nightspots along Sta­tion 3. And as the rest of the is­land sleeps in still­ness, so does its sec­ond prop­erty in the is­land, As­to­ria Boracay. Once es­tab­lish­ments be­come fully op­er­a­tonal, guests will be wel­comed back into a laid-back re­treat in the re­sort. Tucked away in one of the coun­try’s nat­u­ral gems is As­to­ria Palawan. As a des­ti­na­tion in it­self, the eco- friendly re­sort sits on a vast mango or­chard, util­is­ing dis­tressed and re­pur­posed wood for an over­all rus­tic feel. Merg­ing the con­cept of work and play, the prop­erty is home to the Man­grove Con­fer­ence Cen­ter and the As­to­ria Palawan Water­park. The func­tion space in the Man­grove Con­fer­ence Cen­ter with a ca­pac­ity of up to 450 guests in the main hall and 100 in each of the two smaller func­tion rooms for cor­po­rate and so­cial events is off­set by Puerto Princesa’s first aquatic amuse­ment park. This fea­tures a ma­rine sanc­tu­ary, vi­brant vor­tex wa­ter slides, a lazy river ride, and other at­trac­tions. And lastly, nes­tled in the shores of Ba­clayon is the lit­tle gem, As­to­ria Bo­hol. This prop­erty com­bines the re­gion’s tra­di­tions with be­spoke hos­pi­tal­ity to cre­ate yet an­other un­for­get­table so­journ. In­spired by a rich Span­ish-Filipino her­itage, the re­sort is clad in ven­tanilla de­tails and machuca tiles - pay­ing ho­mage to old-world el­e­gance. Ev­ery get­away and stay­ca­tion at any one of the idyl­lic As­to­ria Ho­tels and Re­sorts is a show­case of artistry and hos­pi­tal­ity that takes its cue from na­ture’s gifts and Filipino cul­ture.
