Vacations are no longer the languid holidays of sun, sea and sand of the past. These days travelers want more from their trips: an education, an immersion in history, an experience of something beyond themselves; an evocative adventure – sensual, intellectual or physical – that enriches the spirit. No discerning traveler is content to lie under the sun anymore. But that doesn’t mean everyone wants to go rock-climbing either. Travelers today are looking for more from their holidays – a feeling of achievement, an insight into the past and a truly unique experience.
Guests of The Peninsula Manila have always been assured of a unique experience of living it up in The Peninsula manner of unparalleled service, exquisite food, and beautiful surroundings. And anyone staying at The Manila Pen, as it is fondly referred to by locals, is guaranteed an even more unique perspective on the Filipino way of life with the introduction of The Peninsula Academy.
Choosing from any one of the many modules offered by The Peninsula Academy, visitors will gain an insight on what makes The Pen the hotel that it is today. The Peninsula Manila’s version of the Academy will offer opportunities in challenging the mind, body and spirit. One may choose to learn how to whip up a halo-halo, take instructions in drawing one’s initials in the manner of letras y figuras or go on a wild and irrevent “Walk Back In Time” tour of Manila. These are but a few of the options available under The Peninsula Academy.
This is The Peninsula Academy.
Holidays lived to the fullest.
