New World Hotels in Manila, Shanghai and Dalian introduce new facilities showcasing the group’s design philosophy of distinctive surroundings, which are elegant, yet crisp and thoughtful in their execution.
The comprehensive USD72 million renovation programme, with the goal of creating venues that allow guests the time and space to focus on and make the most of what is important to them, includes re-styled guestrooms and executive floors; innovative restaurants and lounges; carefully chosen art pieces and subtle, Oriental-influenced décor.
Extensive renovation and new guest experiences at New World Makati Hotel Designed by Singapore-based White Jacket, New World Makati Hotel has been extensively renovated including a refreshed arrival experience with new lobby and lounge, the top four floors re-designed to house executive club floors and lounge, and new, fully equipped function spaces and Events Gallery.
The lobby features marble floors, dark wood furnishings and new art pieces with The Lounge offering all-day refreshments. All club floor guestrooms and suites offer a residential style accommodation and the executive lounge features cosy corners and meeting rooms.
The Gallery I and Glasshouse rooms are ideal for events of up to 30 and 100 persons respectively and both feature all-purpose show kitchens. Equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual systems, the renovated ballroom accommodates up to 500 guests.
The Events Gallery offers a private space for guests to see and select from a wide range of banquet facilities and services, from table settings and floral arrangements to menu selections.Signifying the comprehensive changeover, the hotel name has been changed to New World Makati Hotel from New World Makati City, Manila Hotel.
Renovated lobby lounge, café and club floor guestrooms at New World Shanghai Hotel Sydney-based Diana Simpson Design has redefined the hotel’s lobby space and Nong Café.
With eight-metre floor-to-ceiling windows and Chinese lattice-work screens, the lobby offers a serene space for guests to observe the bustling city scene outdoors while enjoying coffees or meeting with friends. The adjacent Cha Lounge offers a quietly elegant environment where guests are invited to enjoy refreshments and appreciate the art of traditional Chinese tea.
Located on the second floor, Nong Café is a light and airy self-service market-style cafe with open kitchen stations, creating an interactive environment for diners to observe chefs preparing dishes á la minute. Small, freshly made portions encourage diners to “graze” and make multiple visits to a variety of food counters.
The club floor guestrooms have been renovated to include stylish furniture, lighting and wall and floor treatments, as well as enhanced bathrooms. The executive club lounge is in the final stage of renovation to be completed by end of March 2013.

It features a dedicated reception and foyer area, separate “break-out” room, an integrated buffet and coffee area, and adjacent relaxation room with sofas and television which can also serve as a bridal preparation room.
The executive lounge has been re-designed with modern furnishings, creating a natural and warm ambience. Located on the 22nd floor, it overlooks the bustling Ren Min shopping district below and the busy harbour, and provides an intimate and relaxing space for club floor guests.
