Shangri-La at the Fort, Manila, opened its doors last month, offering nearly two dozen meeting and convention venues in the up-and-coming Bonifactio Global City (BGC).
The hotel's 576 guest rooms, including 46 suites, are decorated in muted tones with all the mod cons you would expect from a luxury hotel. The Horizon Club, on level 40, offers standard club-level perks including complimentary breakfast, cocktails and canapes in the evening, snacks and beverages all day, and use of a meeting room.
There is also over 8,000 square metres of recreational space on offer at Kerry Sports Manila. The space will offer five core fitness zones, a spa with 10 treatment rooms, and tennis and squash courts. Other facilities include four dedicated fitness studios and a 25-metre outdoor pool
The hotel will offer seven drinking and dining spots, all of which will be open by the end of May. For variety try High Street Cafe which offers nine theatre kitchens preparing Continental, Mediterranean, Japanese, Chinese and Southeast Asian cuisines as well as desserts.
The hotel has an impressive 21 spaces for events. The largest meeting space, the pillar-less grand ballroom, is 1,800 square metres, can accommodate up to 1,200 people and features elegant Lasvit chandeliers and wall panels that resemble brooches - features that were both inspired by pieces of jewellery.
