To experience the pulsating energy of one of the world's most populated cities, one should pay Makati a visit. One of Metro Manila’s 17 districts, Makati makes up the very core of the National Capital Region of the Philippines.
Here, visitors will be introduced to towering steel-clad skyscrapers, a diverse range of entertainment hotspots as well as culture and historical landmarks. It is also here where you can find multinational companies, international banks, the Philippine Stock Exchange and foreign embassies.
Located in what is known as the ‘Ayala Triangle’, a posh, upscale area comprising upscale shopping malls, modern office buildings, first-class restaurants, bistros and bars, is the Ascott Makati residence that is housed in Glorietta Mall. Other shopping complexes nearby include The Landmark, Greenbelt and Power Plant shopping malls. A short 5-minute walk away from the residence is the Ayala train station, which links the area with the rest of Makati.
For your culture fix, make a trip to a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Nuestra Señora de Gracia Church, built by the Augustinian friars. The still-functioning Neo-Romanesque-Gothic style church's construction dates as far back as early 1600s and is a popular wedding venue. Another landmark worth visiting is the Ayala Museum, which exhibits the rich and vivid history of the Philippines from as early as the Mactan battle to the country's relatively recent struggle for democracy. It is also home to paintings by notable Filipino painters such as Fernando Amorsolo, Juan Luna and Fernando Zobel.
At the end of an exciting day, return to the residence to rejuvenate. Ascott Makati offers our guests the comforts and little lavishes that makes for a memorable stay. Serviced apartments are spacious and elegantly furnished with contemporary furniture. Apartments come in various sizes, ranging from studios to three-bedroom apartments that come fitted with en-suite bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, washing machines and dryers.
Ascott guests have access to comprehensive facilities such as an on-site fitness centre, outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, spa and massage centre and a list of services like dry cleaning, airport transfer, babysitting and daily housekeeping.
