Arquitectonica-designed Fairmont Makati unveiled

Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has announced the opening of Fairmont Makati, marking the brand's entry into the Philippines. Situated in one of the 17 cities comprising Metro Manila - one of the major financial, commercial and economic hubs in Asia - Fairmont Makati joins a portfolio of Fairmont hotels in the Asia Pacific region, including the recently opened Fairmont Jaipur in India and Shanghai's Fairmont Peace Hotel.

Fairmont Makati offers 280 deluxe rooms and suites, including Fairmont Gold, the hotel's exclusive hotel within a hotel. Conceived by architects Arquitectonica and interior designers Bent Severin International, the architecture features what was described as a “sophisticated style alongside the rich, cultural characteristics of Filipino design”. Making use of abundant local materials such as coco-twig white resin, crushed mahogany seeds (embedded in the walls) and abaca laminated glass, a warm, neutral palette boasts colorful accents and detail finishes like pearl in-lay handles on mahogany wood. A focal point of each guestroom is the floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooking the city.

 

The tower housing Fairmont Makati also is home to Raffles Makati, a 32-room, all-suite hotel, and Raffles Residences, featuring 237 one- to four-bedroom residences for both short and long- term stays. Raffles is a sister brand under the parent company Fairmont Raffles Hotels International.

An array of flavors is on offer at Fairmont Makati. Spectrum is the hotel's all-day dining restaurant. Cafe Macaron offers a selection of freshly baked bread, desserts, pralines and pastries. The Lounge at Fairmont serves afternoon tea and after dinner snacks. The Long Bar at Raffles Hotel Singapore is the inspiration behind Long Bar featuring light snacks, as well as the Singapore Sling and, for a quieter escape, the Writers Bar is located at the lobby of the Raffles Makati.

For meetings and special events, the hotel offers 1,700 square meters (18,000 square feet) of function space including a 900 square meter (over 9,687 square foot) ballroom. Fairmont's signature Willow Stream Spa totals 1,200 square meters (14,000 square feet), featuring five equipped treatment rooms, hair salon, full-service nail studio, a mineral pool, an outdoor swimming pool and beautiful terrace offering a luxurious urban retreat.
