Raffles Makati has opened in the thriving business district of Makati—part of the Metro Manila region of the Philippines—with three different components within a 30-floor tower: 32 Raffles hotel suites on two levels; 237 one- to four-bedroom Raffles Residences condominiums; and the Fairmont Makati, another hotel with 280 spacious deluxe rooms. In addition to fine-dining options and a pastry boutique, the hotel has two bars, including the Writer’s Bar, which is designed like an inviting, cozy library. Other amenities include two large outdoor swimming pools, a fitness center, and the Willow Stream Spa. (+632.555.9777; www.raffles.com/makati)
