Ascott Sets The Benchmark For Luxury Living In The Philippines With Its Newly Renovated Ascott Makati
CapitaLand’s wholly owned serviced residence business unit, The Ascott Limited (Ascott), has unveiled newly renovated apartments and facilities at its premier serviced residence in the Philippines, the Ascott Makati, setting the benchmark for luxury living in the heart of Makati’s Central Business District.
Conveniently located within Glorietta Shopping Complex and surrounded by restaurants, entertainment and shopping malls, one of the two towers at the 362-unit Ascott Makati has been completely revamped and renovation of the second tower is set to begin in the first quarter of 2017.
Mr Arthur Gindap, Ascott’s Regional General Manager for the Philippines and Thailand, said: “Our newly upgraded Ascott Makati is set to outclass all other serviced residences in the Philippines with its sophisticated and understated luxury. 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.”
“Beyond the new apartments and facilities at Ascott Makati, what defines the Ascott experience is our staff who take pride in ensuring our guests have a memorable stay each and every time. This is honed from Ascott’s over 30 years of experience in managing awardwinning serviced residences around the world.”
Mr Gindap added: “Long-staying guests who are on relocation or project assignments can move into Ascott Makati without hassle, as each apartment comes with plenty of storage space, new kitchen for some home cooking if they do not wish to dine out, washing machine and dryer, as well as the convenience of daily housekeeping service. Business executives or holidaymakers travelling with families will appreciate the comfort of home and the privacy of their individual bedrooms within the apartment. Through our wide array of Ascott Lifestyle activities, from local food trails to Filipino language classes and festive celebrations, our guests can get to know other residents as they assimilate into a new city.”
The new apartments at Ascott Makati feature expansive living and dining areas, designer interior, new furnishings with plush fabrics in soft neutral colours and rich blue tones, lavish fittings, fully-equipped kitchens with new appliances, home entertainment systems and wireless internet connection. Guests can choose from a range of elegantly designed studio, one- to three-bedroom apartments as well as three penthouses that come with a balcony. Some of the apartments also have floor to ceiling windows with breathtaking views of the city.
Along with the new apartments, Ascott Makati has also unveiled a new posh lobby, a premium residents’ lounge, a new pristine swimming pool and a colourful Cubbies playroom for children. The serviced residence will also soon launch an upscale restaurant by popular steakhouse Myron’s, a swanky pool bar named Que, a ballroom and function rooms. To relax and recharge, Ascott Makati offers guests a fully-equipped gymnasium with personal trainers, tennis courts, aerobics room, barbecue area, spa, jacuzzi and steam room. For business needs, Regus at Ascott Makati operates serviced offices for lease, meeting rooms and a business centre.
Together with Ascott Makati, Ascott manages seven serviced residences in Manila and one in Cebu, making Ascott the largest international serviced residence operator in the Philippines with more than 1,600 apartment units. This includes Citadines Millennium Ortigas Manila which is slated to open in 2017 and Ascott’s first property in Cebu – Citadines Cebu City that is scheduled to open in 2019.
