The fine dining area has 355 seats that includes two private dining rooms, a sushi bar, floating water cabanas, two Teppanyaki tables and a Chef’s Table.

For travelers who want to relax and unwind after exploring the city of Manila, Nobu Hotel Manila is also known for its signature treatments in their spa. Nobu Rakuen is an Asian-inspired fused massage with relaxing scents of essential oils to soothe away stress, then a rejuvenating hand and foot massage to awaken your body’s energy flow. To finish the treatment, a relaxing head and face massage completes this exclusive and luxurious spa package.

But those seeking for a locally inspired treatment may opt for Juan’s Hilot Pride, a therapeutic full-body massage that soothes overworked and tired muscles, helping to unwind the senses. For the sportier types, the property has a 23.2-meter long swimming pool that’s ideal for doing laps.

“We had an overall great experience, perfect for families needing quality time away from the city. Excellent amenities (from the pool, restaurant and access to City of Dreams) and room features (toilet/bath, iphone dock/speakers, room size and bed). Will definitely go back when we need a quick staycation!”
