From the Philippines Bureau of Immigration:

B. Indians may be granted a visa-free entry for an initial stay not exceeding 14 days under the Foreign Service Circular No. 36-12, provided, that they possess:

  • Unexpired US, Japanese, Australian, Canadian, Schengen, Singapore or UK visa or permanent residence permit;
  • A national passport valid at least six (6) months beyond the contemplated stay;
  • Return or onward ticket to the next country of destination;
  • No Bureau of Immigration (BI), National Intelligence Coordinating Agency (NICA), and the International Police (Interpol) derogatory record.

The 14-day visa-free entry may be extended by an additional seven days for a maximum 21 days.

From the information in your question, it seems that you meet the conditions above, in which case you will not need a visa.
