Surrounded by steel-clad skyscrapers, Ascott Makati stands out from the busy city of Manila. The hotel offers guests a tranquil escape, while also providing easy access to the shopping hub of Ayala and nearby corporate offices such as the Philippine Stock Exchange. The 20-floor hotel consists of 362 serviced apartments ranging from studios to three-bedrooms that are designed to feel like a home away from home. Each suite contains a fully equipped kitchen and elegant furnishings, while downstairs guests can enjoy the outdoor swimming pool, tennis court or gym.
The developers of Ascott Makati, The Ascott Limited, chose to retrofit the existing hotel to improve resource efficiency and to appeal to guests who are committed to a sustainable lifestyle. The redesign of the hotel included installing energy-efficient air conditioning and heat pumps for hot water to save energy. Other features like low-flow showerheads and dual flush water closets conserve water. Ascott also reused existing material from the floor slabs, roof, walls and window frames, which will reduce embodied energy in materials by 84%. The building is expected to reduce operational costs by more than one fourth.
Based in Singapore, Ascott has a global portfolio of over 660 properties in 170 cities across more than 30 countries. The international lodging owner-operator has more than 30 years of experience delivering quality projects and has committed to building its properties green. From China to Ghana, Ascott contributes to a transformation of the hospitality industry that invests in sustainable construction methods. Ascott Makati has received final EDGE certification from the Philippine Green Building Initiative.
