At first glance, it’s easy to tag its premier location as the main asset that sets Ascott Makati apart from its competition. With the property right in the heart of the commercial and business district of Makati, and nestled within the city’s largest shopping complex, not only are some of the country’s major corporate offices in close proximity, lifestyle choices in dining and entertainment abound.
And recently, the premier serviced residence address just upped the ante in luxury living when it unveiled its newly renovated suites (important to note, though, that all units in Ascott Makati are classified as suites).
Ace of space
Spacious living spaces has always been a staple of every Ascott Makati residence, and the renovation ensured that nothing in that aspect would change as expansive living and dining areas are complimented by designer interiors, lavish fittings, fully-equipped modern kitchens, home entertainment systems and speedy Wi-Fi connections.
And the revamp wasn’t limited to the elegant suites as major changes also swept across the entire property. A new lobby with just the right touch of sophistication was likewise recently unveiled, along with the Executive Lounge and a Cubbies playroom that caters to children of long-staying guests.
Soon, Ascott Makati will also see the launch of premier restaurant Myron’s, a pool bar called Que, a coffee shop on the ground floor and a grand ballroom.
Close to 80 percent of Ascott Makati’s long staying guests (those who stay a minimum
of 30 days) are expats. And according to general manager Joanne Gomez, apart from their unmatched luxury living options, it’s their attention to the needs of their guests that have kept them on top of the game.
“We have what’s called the Ascott Host, a service that provides expats orientations about what to expect in the country and liaise with them on what they need to have before they come to the Philippines. And when they get here, the host provides tours of different areas that they would need to go to like the nearest banks, convenience
stores, embassies, etc.,” explains Gomez, adding that key do’s and don’ts of Philippine
living, as well recommended tourist destinations are also provided to long staying
Basically, if you choose to call Ascott Makati your home, everything you’ll need is just a phone call away with Ascott Host.
The Ascott Limited is a member of CapitaLand. It is the largest international serviced residence owner-operator with more than 290 properties in over 100 cities spanning more than 25 countries across the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe and the Middle East.
