For over 30 years, The Peninsula Manila has set the benchmark for luxury and sophistication, and is affectionately called “Manila Pen” by habitués of The Lobby. A haven of comfort, quality service and fine cuisine, the hotel is as much a favourite with discerning locals as it is with visitors.
Since opening its doors in 1976, The Peninsula Manila has often been regarded as one of the finest hotels in the world, thanks largely in part to the unparalleled personalised service provided by its hard-working, dedicated staff, who make up the heart and soul of this iconic hotel.
The Peninsula continues to seek passionate and highly motivated professionals. The hotel offers an excellent remuneration package and provides continuous learning and development opportunity to its staff, often leading to promising career advancement. If you are full of initiative and integrity, caring and committed to excellence, we invite you to join The Peninsula Manila family and to grow with us in the exciting field of luxury international hospitality.
Often referred to as the “Jewel in the Capital’s Crown”, The Peninsula has received countless awards and accolades, including ‘Best Hotel in Manila’ by Asiamoney magazine and The Best Hotel In The Philippines by Travel + Leisure.
