We check into the humongous property, a rarity among luxury hotels in space-challenged Metro Manila.
Contemporary elegance best describes the well-appointed spacious rooms and suites. Ranging from 45m2 to 96m2, all rooms are outfitted with the latest technology like intelligent lighting.
The deluxe room is a cocoon of luxury with a roomy bed, soft linen, feather duvet and a pillow menu. Thereâ€™s also a spacious writing desk, and the marble bathroom was stocked with personal care items and plush bathrobes.
Meeting spaces within the hotel include the 1,650m2 Grand Ballroom for up to 1,200 pax, 780m2 junior ballroom for up to 715 pax, and 19 multifunction rooms spread over multiple floors.
Shangri-La at The Fort also has an Events Concierge for event organisers and guests. Also, the hotelâ€™s edge is that its staff are able to meet the specifications of event organisers in terms of aesthetics, service quality and food. The frontline staff for business events have certainly improved and their confidence more apparent, unlike in the beginning when there were several hiccups not quite uncommon for a new hotel.
The hotel is also well situated, providing easy access for delegates and business travellers to surrounding tourist attractions, and Bonifacio Global Cityâ€™s shops, bars, restaurants, and convention centre.
There are six dining concepts led by the modern-day marketplace concept of High Street Cafe. Meanwhile, Kerry Sports Manila occupies 8,000m2 and has over two floors with fitness facilities such as studios for yoga or pilates, a gym, 25-metre outdoor lap pool, and a NBA-grade indoor basketball court.
