Shangri-La at the Fort Know Thy Rum

[02/08/16] 

When it comes to Manila, we’re sure thoughts of sizzling temperatures, polluted air, overcrowded streets, and infuriating traffic jams that make every destination so close yet so far, burst to mind. However, we assure you, change is afoot.

Bonifacio Global City (BGC) is an emerging lifestyle district at the heart of the city that boasts a relaxing and surprisingly sophisticated vibe. Here you’ll find up-scale shopping malls, art installations, the first science museum in the Philippines, and best of all, a multitude of world-class restaurants and night clubs catering to the city’s pretty young things.

Nestled in the heart of this vibrant new precinct is the newly-opened Shangri-La at the Fort, a luxurious 576-room urban oasis that’s the perfect he-hideout for your next cheeky long weekend away. Do yourself right with a 96sqm Premier Suite, with its expansive living areas so ideal for entertaining new-found company; a separate master bedroom for…rest and relaxation; stunning city views; and a marble bathroom with walk-in shower and soak tub (feel free to use the complimentary LUSH Dragon Egg bath bombs, we’re not here to judge). All that entertaining and pampering is bound to build up an appetite; fortunately there’s dry-aged steaks waiting for you at Raging Bull Chophouse & Bar, and seasonal South American fare poolside (where else?) at Samba. Feeling guilty about all that overindulgence? Explore BGC’s galleries, hip cafes and parklands on one of the hotel’s Bambike bamboo bikes, before making a beeline for the unique Kerry Sports centre, home to an outdoor lap pool, NBA-certified basketball court and a state-of-the-art fitness centre, a great last stop before you BGC’s top clubs.

Because it’s important to stretch before strenuous activity.
