Philippine Red Cross in Taal

The Taal Volcano eruption last 12 January 2020 has left thousands of families homeless.  The Philippine Red Cross since then has pitched 48 tents out of the planned 162 units for the tent city in Malainin, Ibaan Batangas.  Over 800 Philippine Red Cross personnel have been mobilized to assist in the Taal operations.

Aside from providing temporary shelters, major initiatives of Philippine Red Cross such as Disaster Management, Community Engagement and Accountability, Welfare Services, Health Services, Safety Services, as well as WASH (a program which promotes Hygiene and maintenance of water stations and portalets), are continuously implemented to ensure that the help extended go beyond relief distribution and help the community to get back on its feet.

    Shan D., Tripadvisor

  • “Stayed at the Discovery Primea Makati for two nights in May in their Two Bedroom Primea Suite. This is truly an above and beyond hotel which after its soft launch I would be surprised doesn’t get fully booked straight away! Will now always make the Discovery Primea my hotel choice in Manila. Will be back next year!”

    Matthew B., Tripadvisor

  • “I have stayed at many hotels in the City and have by far enjoyed this stay the most. From the moment I arrived I was greeted by warm and friendly staff who were very accommodating. The stand out for me is the apartment style facilities. A home away from home. Spacious rooms and modern appliances with a vast array of Chef inspired menu options. Will be back soon.”

    Stephen W., Tripadvisor

  • “A truly exceptional hotel. Very friendly and accomodating personnel, luscious food to die for, exceptional facilities with an exceptional view of BGC, Makati and Ortigas Skyline, and top notch accessibility. We’ll be back for sure.”

  • Great ambiance, service and food. From the lobby to our room, the experience was beyond words could describe. Kudos especially to housekeeping for the upkeep of the room. I would definitely recommend this hotel chain to my family and friends.
