A Magnificent View to a High Life

Imagine coming home (and having a nightcap) to the fantastic view of Manila’s famous sunset.

A select group of friends got a first-hand look at one of the many amazing reasons to live at the 53-storey Admiral Baysuites on Roxas Boulevard via a fantastic sunset cruise along Manila Bay. 

Looking every inch like a modern-day goddess, Elizabeth “Beth” Ventura, president of luxury real estate developer Anchor Land Holdings, Inc., warmly received the guests who all came in classic white and excitedly climbed aboard the 70-foot chartered yacht before sundown. 

Admiral Baysuites boasts of a prime location (near airports and sea ports), high rental yield, a high investment value with relatively low price per square meter, and prestige.  The residential luxury condominium is adjacent to the historic Admiral Hotel which Anchor Land is also redeveloping into the first five-star boutique hotel in the country.  Unit owners will get to experience the European style of living as white-gloved concierge service from the Admiral Boutique Hotel will also extend to Admiral Baysuites’ residents. 

Anchor Land is a responsible developer, managing real estate projects that contribute to the changing landscape of Roxas Boulevard.   At the doorstep of the Bay City entertainment enclaves, Anchor Land is developing the Monarch Parksuites, a 17-storey residential luxury condominium composed of four grand towers named after real castles in England (Windsor Suites, Windsor Palace, Balmoral Suites, and Balmoral Place).  

We definitely enjoyed every minute of the two-hour cruise that showed the timeless beauty of Manila Bay at sundown and the glorious past of the city of Manila.  Our yacht sailed past the Philippine Entertainment City, Solaire, City of Dreams, and Mall of Asia against a breath-taking backdrop of an orange sunset. Thank you, Admiral Baysuites, for the indulgence!
