This inaugural Indagare Insider Journey to the Philippines is designed for those who like the adventure of being the first guests to experience a new itinerary—and have Indagare founder Melissa Biggs Bradley as host. This seven-night journey will introduce travelers to leading members of Manila’s highly sophisticated business, social, cultural and artistic circles and take them a world away to an island retreat that is not only the most acclaimed resort property in the country but one of the most famous beachfront getaways in Asia. It is an itinerary that blends the rewards of urban exploration with those of sybaritic indulgence—to perfection.
A spot on this trip may be reserved with a 50% non-refundable deposit, with the balance to be paid in full by November 15, 2023.
