Raffles Manila rendering

The financial district of Makati City, in Metro Manila, Philippines, is about to welcome a new luxury hotel, the Raffles Makati, with a pre-opening event scheduled for December 1, with the main opening set for February 2013.

The luxury hotel group’s new address houses 32 suites in a 30-storey building.

All the suites sport floor-to-ceiling windows and luxurious decorative touches, such as handwoven carpets. Colorful fabrics and Filipino handicraft items add a local touch to the decor.

The brand new building will also house other properties: Raffles Residences with 237 apartments (from studio to six-room condos) and the Fairmont Makati,  a 280-room luxury hotel.

Two bars (the Long Bar and the Writer’s bar), several restaurants, a bakery, two large outdoor swimming pools, a spa, a gym and a business center round out the facilities.
