Fairmont And Raffles Debut In Philippines

The Philippines’ capital city Manila today welcomes the newest additions to its hotel inventory with the opening of the highly-anticipated Fairmont Makati and Raffles Makati in the heart of the Ayala Centre. Within walking distance to the city’s financial and entertainment district, both luxury properties are housed in a striking 30-storey glass tower conceived by architectural firm Arquitectonica with interior design by Bent Severin International.


Fairmont Makati

280 well-appointed guestrooms and suites combine luxury with business practicality. Stunning views of the bustling city are presented through floor-to-ceiling windows and contemporary furnishings with warm, neutral colours create a soothing environment. Guests can relax on King-sized or double beds and enjoy the comforts of the walk-in rainforest shower and deep-soaking bathtub, while state-of-the-art technology including LED televisions, a media connectivity panel, high-speed internet access and voicemail telephone offer convenience to business travellers.


Raffles Makati

Elegantly designed to reflect the local culture, the Raffles Makati’s 32 suites draw on the brand’s timeless charm with intimate decorative touches such as louvered blinds, handwoven carpets and Filipino handicrafts. Fine bedding and marble bathrooms lend an air of stateliness and modern amenities satisfy the demands of the contemporary traveller. Long-staying guests have the added option of the Raffles Residences, featuring 237 apartments ranging from 1- to 4-bedrooms.


Both properties share 6 unique dining outlets within the complex. Spectrum is a lively all-day dining venue serving international favorites from 5 ‘culinary theatres’, while the Cafe Macaron offers freshly baked breads, pastries, pralines and desserts to guests with a sweet tooth. Enjoy afternoon tea at the Lounge at Fairmont or simply relax by the water at the Pool Bar & Pool Lounge, followed by Singapore Slings at the first overseas outpost of the legendary Long Bar or quiet contemplation at the Writers Bar.


For meetings and events, over 1,700 square meters of function space (including a 900-square meter ballroom) are at the disposal of business travellers and conference organizers. The signature Fairmont Willow Stream Spa awaits to rejuvenate guests after a day of business with its range of natural therapies and wellness services.


Fairmont Makati and Raffles Makati join a storied collection of luxury and iconic properties around the world flying the flag of their respective brands. The collection continues to grow with Fairmont set to welcome a new resort on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah and a hotel in Baku’s iconic Flame Towers complex, while Raffles looks to Asia for growth with developments in Hainan Island, Istanbul, Jakarta and the Maldives.
