Guests at the Fairmont enjoy extremely spacious accommodation with stunning views of the city skyline. Fairmont Rooms are light and airy, with high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. The marble bathroom features a rain shower and separate bathtub, with complimentary luxury amenities by Le Labo. Boasting all the amenities of the Fairmont Room, Deluxe Rooms are superbly located – choose from a room with a view over the serene pool area or a Deluxe Corner Room with a phenomenal view over Makati.

All-suite Raffles is set over the ninth and tenth floors and offers stylish suites with locally-inspired décor and signature service. Junior Suites feature a marble spa bathroom with walk-in shower and separate bathtub, floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing spectacular city views, and plush beds with 100% cotton linen. Choose an Executive Suite for even more luxury; these suites come complete with all the opulence of a Junior Suite plus a separate living/dining area.

Take a dip in the fourth-floor outdoor pool and enjoy views over the bustling city, or head to Willow Stream Spa for indulgent treatments and plenty of relaxation. Regardless of whether you choose to stay in a Fairmont guestroom or a Raffles suite, there are plenty of sumptuous dining options. Mediterranean-inspired Mireio brasserie is found on the ninth floor, while Spectrum offers all-day international cuisine.
