Vine Street Studios Brighton

I often evangelise about the saving grace of apartment rental as opposed to hotel stays for a certain type of trip.

Usually I’m preaching to the converted but some people would need a miracle of water-to-wine proportions before they’d give up 24-hour room service, the breakfast buffet and a decent concierge (though perhaps not the in-room bible).

I’m just going to come right out and say it, Manila’s Fairmont Makati is my new favourite hotel in the world. In fact it isn’t really a hotel, it feels like a destination in and of itself.

Manila may not be the first place that springs to mind for a relaxing break, but after a stay at The Fairmont Makati you can’t help but feel serene – and in an Asian mega city with this much traffic and pollution, that’s no mean feat.
