Glamorous and elegant, the Manila project enhances the company’s growing presence in Asia
Fairmont Hotels & Resorts announces a new property in Manila, the Fairmont Makati. Located in the elegant shopping and financial district of Makati, the property expands the company’s growing presence in Asia, joining sister hotels in Singapore, Beijing (2008), Kunshan (2009), Macao (2010) and Shanghai’s landmark Peace Hotel (2010).
The Fairmont Makati, opening in 2010, offers 300 rooms and suites including Fairmont Gold, the brand’s exclusive lifestyle offering featuring warm and personalized service with amenities such as a private reception desk and a comfortable guest lounge.
Guests will enjoy a variety of restaurants and bars, including a brasserie featuring regional and Mediterranean cuisine as well as a contemporary restaurant and bar featuring grilled seafood and meat amongst the choices.
Glamorous and elegant events can be held in expansive function spaces and a well-equipped separate Chinese banquet kitchen will allow for 450 guests. A wide range of meeting and function space can accommodate groups of varying sizes, including an 8,000 square foot grand ballroom, a 3,500 square foot ballroom and eight additional function rooms.
A large, outdoor pool will be complemented by a spa as well as fitness facilities, offering guests a variety of relaxing and recreational amenities. Located on Makati Avenue, the hotel is convenient for both the business and leisure traveler; the neighborhood is home to the Philippine Stock Exchange and many offices and headquarters of global companies in addition to some of the city’s most prominent luxury shopping.
Fairmont is partnering with Kingdom Hotel Investments (KHI), a leading hotel investment company and Ayala Land, Inc. on the project.
“We are excited to partner not only with KHI, but Ayala Land, one of the most prominent real-estate development firms in the Philippines, stated Thomas W. Storey, President, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. “This is an unprecedented development and we are honored that Ayala is entrusting both KHI and Fairmont with this project, in the first instance of a land transaction with a foreign investor.”
Fairmont Makati joins a number of recent announcements across the globe, including Fairmont Zimbali Lodge, South Africa; Fairmont Roco Ki, Dominican Republic; and Fairmont Zanzibar, Tanzania.
