At the end of the scenic drive up Sumulong Highway, you’ll get a peek of Le Blanc Hotel right as you turn the corner. Located beside Le Blanc Resort is the all-white, 32-room, upscale hotel—probably the only one in Antipolo—standing out against the rustic landscape.

According to Francis Hallare III, owner and architect of Le Blanc Hotel, “It was really to cover the hotel room gap the city needs, and to provide an upscale hotel to improve the tourism efforts of Antipolo.” With a lot of the wedding destinations set in this elevated city, it was only logical for the company to build a hotel arm to accommodate guests.

Expect all-white rooms, of course


“As the architect and owner, I wanted to give a more sophisticated approach while maintaining our blanc concept. We also tried to provide a modern vibe without being too stiff. I believe the people of Antipolo deserves the finer things in life,” shares Francis.

The white “color” scheme will immediately relax you


You experience this elegant concept in every room, and hallway inside this hotel. Reproduction midcentury furniture, sleek and minimalist décor, and a pale palette make the hotel rooms incredibly soothing—there is no “visual noise.”


There are outdoor amenities as well


The hotel has a pool, a restaurant, a Skygarden, a function hall, meeting rooms, a gym, and a partner golf club—practically everything you can enjoy in the crisp Antipolo air; no need to venture out.


Even the Bistro is white!


One of the areas you can enjoy is The Bistro, the hotel’s restaurant, which is bathed in sunlight and all-white modern furniture. Francis recalls: “Funny how it was the last thing I designed for this project. I really didn’t know how to begin or where to start. When i needed to submit a design to the contractor, it just happened. Normally it takes me several sketches to be happy with the design. But not this area.” The ceiling has a playful lighting pattern and the different furniture heights all add to the casual-elegant vibe.

The menu is also something to look forward to, with comfort food and Asian dishes. “One day in Antipolo is not enough. There are so many places to see that it demands an overnight stay at the hotel,” Francis quips. Le Blanc Hotel is also open to events, weddings, and private celebrations.
