  • 0

Thinking of booking a quick trip with the kids? Here’s a list of Metro Manila staycation hotels certified by the Department of Tourism as of October 14, 2021.

With the lockdown easing up to Alert Level 3 from October 16 to 31, 2021, individuals of all ages may now book a staycation. However, under the amended guidelines, only DOT-accredited Metro Manila staycation hotels with a Safety Seal Certification will be allowed to accommodate guests. To further ensure everyone’s safety, only fully vaccinated guests can book.

Unvaccinated guests, including kids, are required to present negative RT-PCR results. Tests should be taken within 48 hours before check-in. DOT suggests availing of a discounted RT-PCR test from the Philippine Children’s Medical Center through the Tourism Promotions Board Philippines.

With that said, here are hotels in Metro Manila with a Certificate of Authority for Staycation. Take note that each hotel may have its own set of guidelines depending on the LGU. We recommend calling or emailing first. Moreover, remember to follow all protocols to guarantee your family’s safety.
