Fairmont Raffles Hotel from Makati Greenbelt

Fairmont and Raffles Hotel are the latest two accommodations to be included in the roster of ritzy hotels that are scattered around the Makati CBD.

Perfect Location
It is conveniently located just across the Landmark supermarket and the equally luxurious Greenbelt mall complex. To add to its convenience, the Glorietta parking area has just been expanded and an exit directly beside the hotel has just been opened.

A City Resort
One of the most impressive things about this hotel complex is the Willow Stream Spa – imagine a whopping 1,200 square meters dedicated to spa treatment rooms, a hair salon, a nail spa, mineral pool, and an outdoor pool that is the very definition of an oasis:

Tea, anyone?

Raffles Makati Hotel Writers Bar Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea at Raffles Hotel, Makati

I’m a sucker for afternoon tea. I used to enjoy an afternoon tea almost once a week back when T Salon in Glorietta was still open. Do you guys remember that resto? They served the best scones with clotted cream! Unfortunately, at that time, tea wasn’t such a big deal in the metro yet, so they closed down :(

In any case, I finally have a great substitute to that at the Writers Bar in Raffles Hotel, which serves an exquisite line of teas and a delicious range of sandwiches and pastries! Not only is the menu very enticing, the ambiance of the Writers Bar is tops. The first time I visited, it felt like I was at an extravagant yet cozy living room of a prominent wealthy man.

Next time you’re around Makati, be sure to drop by Fairmont Makati and Raffles Hotel, and imagine you’re at the very lap of luxury. For more luxury hotels in Makati, click here.
