The Discovery Leisure Company Inc

The Discovery Leisure Company Inc, is a name synonymous with luxury service and accommodation in the Philippines.
The synergy of home-grown resources and world class expertise gave rise to the Discovery hotel brand, a collection of distinguished portfolio that includes a serviced apartment in the city, a plush Bed & Breakfast in a lake-side community, and a tropical retreat in one of the world's most famous beaches.
The Discovery Leisure Company (TDLC) continues to make waves in an industry on throes of another resurgence. With the world tourism market steadily making its way back to our shores, the Filipino company behind Discovery Suites, Discovery Country Suites and Discovery Shores Boracay is poised to provide for their needs. The group is also on the fast track to expand their portfolio of hotels and resorts with more acquisitions and co-development projects in the future.
This push for expansion is driven by a talented pool of Filipino hotel managers who were able to gather their skills and professional savvy from their previous stints in international chains here and abroad and combine them with the Filipino's innate warmth and genuine hospitality.
