    • No place is guaranteed to be COVID-FREE. All hotels with permision from DOT and BOQ to operate during the quarantine period accept returning Overseas Filipinos and OFWs to quarantine in their premises, as needed by OWWA or as booked by guests directly. Guided by strict management of health & safety in the hotel based on IATF & DOT regulations, hotels house guests who may be or may not be infected by the Coronavirus responsible for COVID-19. A mitigation and sanitation plan is in place to ensure containment of such incidents, if any.
  5. How can you ensure “safe spaces” in your premises?
    • The Department of Tourism has issued strict guidelines on health and safety inside hotels operating during the quarantine period. These sanitation standards are of the highest level of safety during a pandemic.
    • Discovery further validates it’s high standard of safety & sanitation through use of proven effective disinfectants that kill the virus that causes COVID-19. We have partnered with Lysol to ensure we use high grade disinfectants, the sanitation of meeting spaces being done before and after every use of space (every hour after a booked appointment or space use).
    • Discovery will require all participants of meet-ups to fill-up a health questionnaire to declare their health condition and possible exposure to COVID-19. Failure to disclose correct health condition and exposure in the questionnaire is punishable by law through the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act (RA-11469).

Reviews

  • 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.”
