Sofitel Manila is a five star luxury resort hotel near Mall of Asia, Intramuros, US Embassy, Manila Ocean Park and major shopping centers in Manila. The hotel opened in 1976, it is a structural masterpiece created by National Artist for Architecture Leandro Locsin, while the hotel’s grounds, resort pool and gardens were designed by Ildefonso P.
