Luxury Living in Makati Diamond Residences, Philippines (Hotel Review)

by Accommodations, Philippines23 comments

As a traveler, you would know by now that I have since left the Philippines to base myself abroad. After 2 years of living and traveling overseas, I decided that it was time to book a ticket to Manila in order to visit my family and friends.

After ironing out my itinerary, I started to hunt for the best staycation that’s right in the heart of the metropolis — for sure, a hotel or an accommodation at my parents’ house would have been an easy answer, but I wanted a centralized place to myself which would hold amenities that are beyond the typical hotel room.

…and that’s when the Makati Diamond Residences came into the picture.

A new property right in the heart of Makati, it offers convenient serviced apartments that have the similar luxuries of a luxury business hotel! It’s absolutely perfect for travelers like me, as well as long-staying guests.

Here are the other reasons why I have come to love this accommodation:



Superb location. Situated right in front of the Greenbelt Malls Complex in Makati, the Makati Diamond Residences provides its guests with fast and easy access to the central business district of the country, the best dining establishments, the greatest entertainment and shopping destinations, and more! Sure enough, you don’t need to brave yourself through traffic or whatnot since everything can be just a walk away from the hotel.

Great Attention to Detail. You will witness it for yourself how every room and facility in the Makati Diamond Residences are designed not only for style but for comfort and convenience too. After all, they have made use of the best materials and furnishings to make the hotel a fitting new ‘home base’ for all of their guests; and for sure, they’ve found the perfect mix for ‘homey’ and ‘luxurious’.

Dedicated Service. The kind of service that a hotel can offer can definitely make or break a staycation experience. Rest assured, with Makati Diamond Residences, you will be assisted and guided by the best staff possible who are not only accommodating but warm. Besides, if you opt to stay in one of the hotel’s bigger suites, you will be treated to their Club Lounge which features a  bar lounge, a private dining area, a private cinema, and more. Clearly, you will be in good hands here!
