The Oriental Legazpi | The Only First-Class Hotel in Bicol


The Oriental Legazpi is a 115-room first class hotel in Legazpi City, Albay and is the only of its kind in the whole Bicol Region. It is situated atop the Taysan Hills offering its guests the most picturesque view of Mayon renowned internationally for its perfect cone shape.

Welcome Beverage: Pineapple & Basil Smoothie

The first-class experience starts upon arrival at the hotel when guests are welcomed by a refreshing drink. It was an unlikely but surprisingly delish combination of pineapples and fresh basil leaves blended into a smoothie. More interesting was the mild hint of chili in the drink, yes chili! We guess it was the hotel's fun way of saying "Welcome to Albay!", an expression of the Bicolano's "warm" hospitality. Very innovative indeed.

eco-friendly architecture: natural light illuminates the interior of the hotel lobby

Checking-in at The Oriental Legazpi also lives up to its first-class standards. It was very quick and efficient. We hope we had more time to admire the bright interior of the hotel's lobby illuminated by the natural light coming in through the building's glass ceiling. We were very preoccupied with staring at the geometric patterns of the ceiling and of the walls that we didn't notice that the front desk officer was already handing us our key cards.

checking-in at The Oriental Legazpi was a bliss

The Oriental Legazpi has nine room types, each having their own character and facilities that suit the different needs and lifestyles of the hotel's guests.
