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.
