This Holy Week and beyond, take your family to a relaxing, refreshing, and reflective retreat with The Oriental Hotels and Resorts, one of the country’s fastest-growing home-grown hospitality chains.
Dubbed the Holy Month ReTreat, the irresistible offerings run for the month of April to provide a respite from the long, hot summer.
The Oriental Leyte, a four-star resort hotel beside the iconic McArthur Landing Monument in Palo, is offering a P 3,999 promo which includes an overnight stay, breakfast for 2, use of pool and gym, and 10% discount on ala carte and thematic dinner at Samsara Restaurant, as well as The Spa.
Guests can swing by the historic Metropolitan Cathedral of Our Lord’s Transfiguration, the seat of the Roman Catholic archdiocese, and ascend the Guinhangdan Hill or Hill 522 in Palo, a popular local year-round pilgrimage site with its giant hilltop cross.
On Good Friday, the Pamalandong Ha Palo features reenactment of Christ’s crucifixion and the Tais-Dupol penitentes, a group of barefoot penitents dressed in robes and conical masked headgear which are influenced by the hooded “capirotes” of Spain.
The Oriental Bataan beckons with a P 3,900 offering which covers overnight stay at a deluxe cellar room, breakfast for two, use of facilities, and 10% on all food and beverage outlets.
Nestled at the foothills of Mt. Mariveles, the hotel is situated near the Death March Km 0 starting point, Mount Samat Dambana ng Kagitingan, historic World War 2 sites, and churches which figured during the said war.
Proxy Hotel in Legazpi City has spice and everything nice with its enticing P 3,000 room promo which includes breakfast for 2, use of the recreational arcade, board games, and swimming pool.
Situated in the heart of the city, the hotel is a strategic jump-off point to the National Cultural Treasures—the Cagsawa Ruins and the Church of the Our Lady at the Pillar, both situated in Daraga, and the St. John the Baptist Church in Tabaco City, as well as religious sites such as the Kawa-Kawa Hill and Natural Park in Ligao City, and the Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine in Buraguis and the Risen Christ in Banquerohan, Legazpi.
As part of spreading love on Christ’s Resurrection Day, the Leyte, Bataan, and Proxy properties will hold an Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday, with a portion of the proceeds going to communities being supported by the LKY Foundation.
The newly-opened The Inns in Bacolod City will make residents of the City of Smiles smile with its P 999 net room offer for 2 persons, which also goes with a 5% discount on ala carte orders.
The boutique business hotel is an ideal homebase in exploring the Spanish-era churches in Negros Occidental, and unique houses of worship such as the Chapel of the Cartwheels in Manapla and the St. Joseph the Worker Chapel, popularly known as the Angry Christ Church located inside the Victorias Milling Company in Victorias City.
Lastly, the Thai-themed Oriental Luxury Suites at the Tagaytay Ridge [check rates] has an amazing 30% discount on all room categories on weekdays (Sundays to Thursdays) except holidays, with breakfast for 2 persons at the veranda with a view of the panoramic Taal Volcano and Lake.
