The Manila Hotel equipped with HEPA Filtration System against viruses


The famed Café Ilang-Ilang and the romantic Champagne Room of the Manila Hotel reopened on January 28 and February 2, 2022, respectively. When the holiday season was over, the hotel chose to suspend dining operations and perform general maintenance to ensure food quality and guest safety, as well as spot-checks on its facilities.

Café Ilang-Ilang is still one of the best eat-all-you-can restaurants in the country, offering a diverse menu for lunch and dinner every day.

This combines Italian, Filipino, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and even certified Halal dishes under one roof for an indulgent eat-all-you-can feast featuring crowd favorites such as the US Beef Rib Roast; items from the Churrasco station; seafood such as prawns and crabs; a glorious spread of different sushi and sashimi; Filipino favorites such as Lechon with truffle rice; an array of desserts such as bibingka, puto bumbong,

Meanwhile, from Wednesday to Saturday, Manila’s premier destination for exquisite fine dining serves lunch and dinner, with a la carte items and special multi-course degustation menus created by the hotel’s Executive Chef to showcase what this dining outlet is all about.

Consider the generous portions of Black Angus Tenderloin, US Prime Beef Rib, Chilean Sea Bass, or the filling Seafood Medley; there are also starter options; and for dessert, don’t miss out on the indulgent sweet delight—signature it’s Baked Alaska. The most romantic room in the country reintroduces fine dining just in time for Valentine’s Day.

#YouAreSafeHere will always be a commitment

As the hotel continues to accept staycation guests, social events in various function rooms and dining outlets reopening, it will be much safer for guests to visit and dine in the outlets as the historic hotel implements a technology-driven solution to create a safer environment for guests by installing several innovative High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) UV-Care Clean air-purifying filtration system units in various high-traffic areas.


The UV Care Air Purifier with Humidifier and 8-Stage Filtration System has been proven to kill 99.97 percent SARS-CoV2* and is a timely response to the surge of COVID-19 Delta and Omicron variants in the country (*tested by MRI Global USA, according to the UV-Care website).

According to its manufacturers, the more advanced, medical-grade H14 HEPA Filtration System has VIRUX® patented technology with built-in activated carbon and photocatalyst filters that, along with the UV LED lamp, is proven to effectively eliminate bacteria, germs, viruses, and pathogens.

Their product information also states that these air filtration units are efficient in capturing and removing airborne particulates such as PM 2.5 and other allergens, dust, mold, and pollution from the air, and provide Ultraviolet-C sanitization to disinfect the air and kill germs. When used along with the best practices recommended by the IATF, DOH, and DOT, it could be an effective indoor protection for both guests and staff.

The Manila Hotel welcomes dining and staycation guests with further assurance that “YOU ARE SAFE HERE”—because it isn’t just a tagline for us, but a commitment we uphold. For air quality, the hotel also installed heavy-duty York Solution Mobile HEPA Air-Handling Units in wider areas like the Grand Lobby.

Aside from dining options, staycation and leisure stays are now at guest-friendly rates from only P6,000 net.
