In Focus: This Makati Gem Knows How To Mix Business With Leisure


Have you heard of this term before? It sounds kind of odd, but it’s a portmanteau of “business” and “leisure.” The buzzword is used to describe the new kind of businessman that’s on the rise: One that doesn’t separate the two worlds. The idea behind it? Business need not feel like a grind all the time. Mixing it with leisure and luxury can create a conducive work environment—and that’s exactly what Makati Diamond Residences offers.

Found at the heart of the Makati Central Business District, the Makati Diamond Residences addresses the demands of business travelers with its Business Center, an area with three private spaces that can each house up to eight people for meetings and other functions. On top of that, photocopying, scanning, and faxing services are available—a huge convenience! As for major business gatherings and events, the Makati Diamond Residences offers a space that’s over 1,500 square meters—the luxurious Legaspi Ballroom. It’s perfect for any and every occasion, with its magnificent foyer, high ceiling, elegant chandeliers, and room that can accommodate up to 350 people. No matter the event, Makati Diamond Residences has different packages that will suit your needs.


And now, for the leisure part: Makati Diamond Residences has more than 400 spacious and exquisitely designed guest rooms, each outfitted with both Filipino and European fittings that should make business travelers feel right at home. All are furnished with a functional kitchenette, a washer and a dryer, a 55-inch LED TV, an in-room safe, a large shower and bath, high-speed Wi-Fi, access to Press Reader, and complimentary Toby’s Estate coffee and TWG Tea.

Business travelers also don’t have to go anywhere else to dine as long as Alfred is around—Makati Diamond Residences’ Asian and Continental restaurant named after the Dark Knight’s iconic butler. Open 24/7, guests can enjoy its scrumptious dishes at any point of the day. Next to the restaurant is Baked, home to Makati Diamond Residences’ famous ube ensaymada, baked cheesecake, the famously moist chocolate cake, and its specialty ice cream—all of which are prepared fresh daily! Moreover, guests on extended stays and corporate accounts are entitled to the Dining Card—this gives guests the flexibility of taking their complimentary breakfast at any of Makati Diamond Residences’ 22 partner restaurants within the area! You definitely won’t run out of food options.


When taking a break from work, business travelers can try Makati Diamond Residences’ array of amenities: The Club Lounge (that has a private cinema!), the 24-hour gym, a spa, an indoor lap pool, and more. It has anything and everything that you’d need not only to work, but also to relax and unwind. Makati Diamond Residences is the very definition of “bleisure.”
