Two Australians have been found dead at a luxury hotel in the Philippines alongside the body of a Filipina companion.
The bodies were discovered with their hands and feet tied in a room at the Lake Hotel in Tagaytay, a popular resort city south of the nation’s capital.
Police did not identify the victims but they are believed to be an Australian man in his 50s, his Philippine-born partner and her relative.
Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAT) also did not reveal their identities but confirmed it was providing consular assistance to the families of two Australians who died in the Philippines.
“We send our condolences to the families at this difficult time,” a spokesperson said in a statement.
Tagaytay mayor Abraham Tolentino said he was shocked by the incident.
“We’re very sorry to our Australian friends,” he said.
“We will resolve this as soon as possible.”
Investigations into the incident are ongoing.

SBS News has contacted DFAT for comment.
