The Ascott Limited has just completed a renovation of its Ascott Makati serviced apartments and facilities in Manila. The refurbishment of the dual-tower, 362-unit Ascott Makati, which is located within the Glorietta Shopping Complex, is taking place in two stages with the first tower now having been completely renovated and work set to begin on the second tower in the first quarter of 2017.
Key features of the new apartments are expansive living and dining spaces, with guests able to choose from studios, one- to three-bedroom apartments along with three penthouses with balconies. Fully equipped kitchens, home entertainment systems and wireless internet are also standard across the residences.
“Our newly upgraded Ascott Makati is set to outclass all other serviced residences in the Philippines with its sophisticated and understated luxury,” says Arthur Gindap, regional general manager for the Philippines and Thailand. “The exclusive serviced residence offers world-class services that are attentive yet discreet, and an extensive range of facilities, designed to cater to discerning business executives and their families.
Gindap adds that the residences are particularly convenient for long-staying guests on relocation or project assignments, owing to the apartments’ abundant storage space, amenities such as washer and dryer, and daily housekeeping services. Meanwhile, a number of Ascott Lifestyle activities such as local food trails and festive celebrations enable guests to meet other residents and better familiarise them with the city.
Along with the residences themselves, the lobby, pool and residents’ lounge have also been extensively refurbished, while an upscale restaurant from steakhouse Myron’s, a pool bar named Que and a ballroom and function rooms are soon to be launched. The residences also offer businesses serviced offices for lease, as well as meeting rooms and a business centre.
Currently managing eight serviced residences in Manila and Cebu, Ascott is scheduled to open its two newest additions Citadines Millennium Ortigas Manila in 2017 and Citadines Cebu City, its first Cebu property, in 2019.
