At the heart of Metro Manila’s thriv­ing Makati busi­ness district – the “Wall Street of the Philip­pines” – one place stands out from the pack. Makati Di­a­mond Res­i­dences pro­vides a sanc­tu­ary for busi­ness trav­el­ers and fam­i­lies, with 410 well- ap­pointed guest rooms rang­ing from a 32- square- me­ter stu­dio to a spa­cious two- bed­room suite. Many suite cat­e­gories fea­ture Euro­pean fit­tings from high- end pur­vey­ors such as Cal­li­garis and Bo Con­cept, while the home­grown brand Las Pal­mas adds a touch of Fil­ipino crafts­man­ship. Ex­pect a kitch­enette, washer and dryer, 55- inch LED tele­vi­sion, com­pli­men­tary Wi- Fi, and more in- room com­forts. Guests stay­ing in larger suites get ex­clu­sive ac­cess to the 27th- floor Club Lounge, with priv­i­leges such as early check- in and late check­out, com­pli­men­tary all- day re­fresh­ments, evening snacks at 5 p. m. paired with se­lect cock­tails and wine, and use of the prop­erty’s pri­vate cinema. Makati Di­a­mond also makes it easy to cul­ti­vate healthy liv­ing habits. En­joy a re­fresh­ing swim come rain or shine at the 25- me­ter in­door lap pool, and stay in shape at the 24- hour gym, equipped with car­dio ma­chines such as tread­mills, mo­tion train­ers, and Keiser spin­ning bikes. A wide range of free weights and non- tra­di­tional row­ing and climb­ing equip­ment are also on hand to com­plete your train­ing rou­tine. Early ris­ers can also im­prove their core strength with hour- long TRX classes at 7 a. m. each morn­ing. If work needs to be done, Makati Di­a­mond’s busi­ness cen­ter of­fers three pri­vate spa­ces for quick meet­ings, in­ter­views and the like. Other ser­vices of­fered in­clude fac­sim­ile, pho­to­copy­ing, print­ing, and scan­ning ser­vices and more. Larger busi­ness meet­ings or so­cial gath­er­ings are also well catered for, thanks to more than 1,500 square me­ters of event space, head­lined by the Le­gaspi Ball­room that ac­com­mo­dates up to 400 guests. Else­where on the prop­erty, the Al­fred res­tau­rant serves up Asian and Con­ti­nen­tal cui­sine 24 hours a day. Next door, Baked of­fers sweet treats such as the pur­ple taro– fla­vored ube en­say­mada, baked cheese­cake, su­per-moist choco­late cake, and spe­cialty ice cream. Long-stay­ing guests and cor­po­rate ac­counts are also en­ti­tled to the Din­ing Card, which gives them the flex­i­bil­ity of a com­pli­men­tary break­fast at part­ner restau­rants in the area any time of day.
