Raffles Makati

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Raffles Makati is an incredible hotel. A sister chain of Fairmont Hotel (in fact, they are linked). I booked 3 junior suites for a reunion with my family. From the front desk staff to the butlers and to the door man - I am beyond impressed with the hospitality that was demonstrated towards me and my guests. I didn't mean to skip over that but, yes, I had a butler! Definite perk to being in a junior suite. The suite was spacious and clean. It was complete (robes, slippers, toiletries, kettle, nespresso machine, complimentary water and fruit, etc). Our stay also included complimentary afternoon tea and cocktails for 2! I've stayed at other high end hotels, paid more and received less. Shout out to our Butler Hendrick and Carl! I wish I knew the name of the gentleman at the front desk when I checked in. He made us super easy and seamless. Felt instantly welcomed! (Check in date Feb 24, 2018). Close to Glorietta and Greenbelt. Would most definitely stay there again!

This hotel has both the warm Asian Welcome and the high level of service expected by global travelers. The private floors and amenities are truely 5 star. The proximity to shopping and dining is fantastic. When returning to Manila I will not search for other options. This is the place for me.

I admit I have weakness with bathtub and luxurious bathroom, and I can say that Raffles Makati have swoon me away. I love their bathroom and the tub, I can stay for longer hours. The bed is also fabulous. Me and mom amour love it!

Very very luxurious room with dividers for the room and the study as well as a small waiting area. big walk-in closet and bathroom. Buffet breakfast is average. The walk to my room was quite far though.

Raffles Manila is a place where you feel welcome with warmth. Excellent service and graceful elegance at this legendary hotel brand. Food is top notch from breakfast to dinner. Enjoy drinks at rooftop bar overlooking Manila skyline. The Writers' Bar with Russian Imperial afternoon tea makes me as a European happy. This is a place you don't want to leave.

Thank you for a wonderful memorable stay.. All staff are wonderful from doorman to housekeeping staff to waitstaff and so on.. Indeed a luxury five star property.. Also it is perfectly located in the fashion and lifestyle center of Makati..

I love the elegance of this hotel. Its really good to be back. From food, service and wide selection of breakfast buffet. Will come back here on my bday on april together with friends and family. Thank you for all the great staff.

First class all the way. we stayed in a junior suite which was quite large, with all the amenities. The are 2 choices for breakfast, and the buffet on the ground floor is the largest breakfast buffet I've ever been to. High tea is served in the afternoon and cocktails are from 6 to 8, all included with your junior suite. There are 2 pools, but the outside pool on the 9th floor is outstanding: 30 mm long, with shady loungers and drinks service. I almost cried when we checked out.

From the moment we arrived until the time we left , everything about this hotel was excellent. The greeting from the ladies at the door and reception (Allen), was first class . Our suite was truly exceptional ,the Writers bar for afternoon tea , Mireio restaurant for terrace drinks - even the car service to the airport - all exceptional. The location is ideal for the Makati area, and the concierge was very helpful in assisting to orientate yourself. This was our first visit to Raffles after years of visiting Manila - forget the Peninsula, Nobu and the others - this is the place to stay.

Thank you for an amazing week! The staff at this hotel are absolutely incredible - I don't know how they keep track of everyone, but after the first day I was greeted by name in the restaurant and lobby. Room was well beyond my expectations and housekeeping did a great job, even accommodating my schedule while I was working nights.When there was an emergency repair required on the floor above me one afternoon, I was sent a letter apologizing for the noise and promising it was a one-off as they knew I was sleeping afternoons, and the manager followed up with me personally later - really appreciated the follow up and personal touch. Highly recommend the spa services too - massage was great. Breakfast was delicious with tons of variety, high quality food and very attentive staff. Live music in the Long Bar was nice, and I highly recommend the high tea in the Writers Bar - and the sweet Paris tea!
