Marco Polo gives you an Afternoon Delight

Sometimes, all you need to do is sit back, relax, and have a cup of tea or silk road coffee, munch on sandwiches while overlooking the Ortigas skyline in the comforts of the the 24 Connect Lounge of Marco Polo Manila. After all, we all deserve a break from time to time and Marco Polo knows how to pamper guests in style without breaking the budget.

Indulging a mean cup of tea with delectable scones, mini cakes, and sandwiches has never been this delightful with Marco Polo Ortigas Manila’s afternoon tea, at the Connect Lounge.


With the hotel’s stunning views at the sky lobby located at the 24th floor, enjoy a 3 tier stand, with customized set of pastries from a wide array of selections such as cakes and mini sandwiches, with coffee or tea. Drinks can be opted for an upgrade to a glass of champagne, smoothie, or iced tea. Witness an open kitchen in the bar counter where all food items will be set up and guests can request their preferred taste. This sanctuary comes with the relaxing view of the East, that will surely make catching up with friends even more enjoyable.

Satisfy your sweet cravings with a new tempting signature treat. Created from overnight-infused coffee flavoured with cinnamon syrup and milk, the Silk Road Iced Coffee consists of a blended iced frappuccino poured into a swirled, chocolate-glazed glass symbolising the roads well-travelled of the Silk Road. Topped with marshmallow, burnt gold-peaked meringues are flambé-finished by blow torch, emanating the sun-glinting mountains along the legendary route. The iced beverage will be presented with a fresh cookie smothering marshmallows and chocolate between Graham crackers, warmed to perfection, inviting guests to explore the history of the Silk Road.

Experience Marco Polo Ortigas Manila’s ridiculously refreshing and utterly delicious signature iced tea, the Earl Grape Iced Tea. It comes with a freshly baked lokum or Turkish delight.  The sugar-based confection is the perfect accompaniment to the Earl Grape Iced Tea, as it helps to accentuate the various flavours resulting from the beverage.
