PLACE OF COM­FORT

A ho­tel of­fers a week­end respite in the heart of Makati’s busi­ness dis­trict

Cebu Living - - Special Feature - By RENZ NOLLASE

For a week­end of re­lax­ation, Makati isn’t ex­actly a top-of-mind des­ti­na­tion for va­ca­tion­ers. As one of the ma­jor hubs of busi­ness in Metro Manila, the city’s gray struc­tures do not nat­u­rally evoke vi­sions of lan­guid pur­suits, but be­hind the façade of com­merce, Makati is a hos­pitable city that has more to of­fer than a firm hand­shake.

This holds true for Makati Di­a­mond Res­i­dences, neslted in the heart of Makati’s busi­ness dis­trict. A straight­for­ward place where busi­ness and plea­sure come in a healthy mix, the ho­tel is a place of pow­er­play on week­days that eas­ily trans­forms into a place of com­fort come week­ends. Be­tween the months of May and Septem­ber, when the mon­soon sea­son rains down upon us, Makati Di­a­mond Res­i­dences of­fers refuge within its walls for the ul­ti­mate stay­ca­tion.

Guests who avail of the Ul­ti­mate Stay­ca­tion pack­age can look for­ward to the use of the ho­tel’s var­i­ous ameni­ties, start­ing off with break­fast for two at Al­fred’s, named af­ter Bat­man’s near-myth­i­cal but­ler, or, for the late riser, some take­away snacks at Baked. Satur­day can be spent ex­plor­ing the ho­tel’s lifestyle ar­eas like the Pri­vate Cin­ema, Lap Pool, Yoga Stu­dio, and Fit­ness Cen­ter. For the health buff, com­pli­men­tary per­sonal train­ing ses­sions and TRX classes are avail­able.

For a re­ju­ve­nat­ing pre­cur­sor to the week, guests can spend their Sun­day in the com­fort of their beds with a hot bev­er­age from TWG tea set up in the room and have a pick of their Sun­day read from over 5,000 news­pa­pers and mag­a­zines from Press Reader. If some pre-Mon­day prep is nec­es­sary, com­pli­men­tary WiFi is also avail­able, so con­nect­ing to your net­work for busi­ness or plea­sure need not be a worry.

Makati is a play­ground for movers and shak­ers, but be­tween busi­ness and plea­sure, it can also be a place of re­pose. On days when home is a plane ride away, seek com­fort in world-class lodges. While it’s true that there’s no place like home, it can also be said that there’s no place like a good, well-ser­viced ho­tel room.
