Fairmont Hotels & Resorts to Debut in the Philippines with Next Month's
Opening of the 280-room Fairmont Makati

TORONTO, November 16, 2012 - Fairmont Hotels & Resorts is pleased to announce the opening of Fairmont Makati on December 3, marking the brand's entry into the Philippines. Ideally situated in one of the 17 cities comprising Metro Manila - one of the major financial, commercial and economic hubs in Asia - Fairmont Makati joins a growing portfolio of Fairmont hotels in the Asia Pacific region, including the recently opened Fairmont Jaipur in India and Shanghai's Fairmont Peace Hotel.

Fairmont Makati offers 280 spacious deluxe rooms and suites, including Fairmont Gold, the hotel's exclusive hotel within a hotel. Conceived by leading architects Arquitectonica and interior designers Bent Severin International, the modern architecture features sophisticated style alongside the rich, cultural characteristics of Filipino design. Making use of abundant local materials such as coco-twig white resin, crushed mahogany seeds (embedded in the walls) and abaca laminated glass, a warm, neutral palette boasts colourful accents and detail finishes like pearl in-lay handles on mahogany wood. A focal point of each guestroom is the floor-to-ceiling glass windows overlooking the bustling city.

The tower housing Fairmont Makati also is home to Raffles Makati, a 32-room, all-suite hotel, and Raffles Residences, featuring 237 one- to four-bedroom residences for both short and long- term stays. Raffles is a sister brand under the parent company Fairmont Raffles Hotels International.

A wide array of flavours is on offer at Fairmont Makati. Spectrum is the hotel's innovative all-day dining restaurant where guests can enjoy international cuisine with five 'Culinary Theatres' surrounding the main dining room, bar and lounge seating areas. Cafe Macaron offers a tantalizing selection of freshly baked bread, desserts, pralines and pastries while the Lounge at Fairmont serves afternoon tea and after dinner snacks. The famous Long Bar at Raffles Hotel Singapore is the inspiration behind Long Bar featuring light snacks as well as the renowned Singapore Sling and, for a quieter escape, the Writers Bar is located at the lobby of the Raffles Makati.

For meetings and special events, the hotel offers 1,700 square meters (18,000 square feet) of function space including a 900 square meter ballroom. Fairmont's signature Willow Stream Spa totals 1,200 square meters (14,000 square feet) of soothing surroundings, featuring five fully equipped treatment rooms, hair salon, full-service nail studio, a mineral pool, an outdoor swimming pool and beautiful terrace offering a luxurious urban retreat.

With its premier location in the heart of the Ayala Centre, Makati's financial and entertainment district, the hotel is within walking distance to the Philippine Stock Exchange, Ayala Museum and the city's most luxurious shopping areas. Guests of Fairmont Makati can enjoy a special introductory offer December 4, 2012 through March 31, 2013 and stay three nights, pay for two with the Seeing is Believing package. Rates start from $239 (PHP9,800) per night, excluding taxes. Reservations can be made by calling 1-800-441-1414 or at fairmont.com/makati.
