Waves for Water

The Discovery Leisure Company officially launched its partnership with international NGO Waves for Water through an outreach in Nagtipunan, Quirino. Found in the mountainous northern part of the Philippines, the indigenous Agta community was given access to clean water through 10 water filters. This can positively impact 1,000 people for up to 5 years.

Sustainable Seafood

The Discovery Leisure Company is proud to have been a part of the Sustainable Seafood Week 2017, in support of artisanal fishing. Artisanal fisheries are small-scale fisheries that use traditional techniques and small boats, which are vital to livelihoods and food security. Since 2016, the leading hospitality Group has attested to promote the importance of sustainable sourcing for its seafood by partnering with Philippine-based fishing firm Meliomar.

The Group’s three signature restaurants feature sustainable seafood dishes in its menus this 2017:

  • Discovery Primea Makati’s Flame: Spice Roasted Prawns
  • Discovery Shores Boracay’s Indigo: Coriander-Crusted Yellow Fin Tuna
  • Discovery Suites Ortigas’ 22 Prime: Texas Shrimp Straw Hats

Diners will delight in the distinct flavor of yellow fin tuna from Caticlan and Selva Shrimp from the mangroves of Vietnam. Apart from enjoying a taste of freshness, guests who avail of these dishes will also play a significant role in taking care of our environment and supporting local fishermen.

Heirloom Rice

Another sustainability effort from the Group is the support of the Heirloom Rice Project in the Cordillera region. Home to several tribes and ethnic groups, each with its own set of customs, religion and folklore, the cultural diversity in the terraces is unified by one thing: rice. The Department of Agriculture – International Rice Research Institute, for its part, is focusing on the farmers and their traditional rice varieties. Reinvigoration of traditional farming in the region will then assure not only the livelihood of farmers, but also the survival of rice culture and the revered terraces.

A must-try heirloom rice dish from the Group is Restaurant Verbena’s Arroz Loco. A well-loved favorite in Discovery Country Suites Tagaytay, the sinful paella-like creation has aromatic heirloom rice covered with tiger prawns, Manila clams, herb-baked oysters, sausages, crab fat, crispy chicken thighs, barbecue red-braised pork belly, salted duck egg, shaved queso de bola and chicken fat croutons.

  • COZY AND HOMEY. This was our 6th or 7th stay and the staff is still very accommodating. The location is strategic being right beside convenience stores, mall, and restaurants… I can say we plan to make it a habit to greet the new year here.”

  • OUTSTANDING AND FRIENDLY SERVICE. The service at the facility is outstanding from arrival to departure. Any thing you ask for is done promptly and with a smile. The gym is pretty good with all the requirements of a hotel gym, with sauna, personal trainers and group classes.”

  • COMFORTABLE HOME AWAY FROM HOME. I stayed in the Discovery suites hotel for 7 weeks in March and April while in Manila for work. And it was very easy for me to start calling it home after a few days! The location is great – podium mall across the street, Starbucks next door and across the street, megamall and Robinson’s galleria only a couple of blocks away.”
