Fairmont Gold Redefines the Standards of Hotel Service

If speakeasies are to bars, then Fairmont has its own version of a "hotel within a hotel" with Fairmont Gold, where every step feels like a VIP experience. I recently had the good pleasure of experiencing it firsthand during a weekend getaway to celebrate my wife's birthday.

As a welcome treat upon arriving at the 5-star hotel, we were greeted with delight by the complementary evening canapés and cocktails, a special treat reserved for Fairmont Gold clients. The seventh-floor oasis felt like heaven, offering a bar service of top shelf booze. Among the culinary highlights were the meter-long sandwich, flavorful minestrone soup, pizza, and the delectable pork rinds! As we indulged, the sunset over the Makati skyline added a romantic touch to the experience. Throughout our two-hour window, we were pampered with attentive service and fluent English-speaking staff, a testament to Fairmont's commitment to excellence.

After satisfying our appetites, we ventured to the Long Bar on the ground floor for some live music. The renowned Puresound band delivered a mesmerizing blend of R&B, Pop, Disco, Jazz, and classic hits. The soulful saxophone melodies gave us delightful shivers, perfectly complementing my wife's favorite Singapore Sling and my adventurous choice, the Banana Del Norte cocktail made with peaty whiskies. Accompanied by addictive Sung Sung peanuts in charming burlap packaging, the music and ambiance created a memorable evening.

Returning to our room (549) was a treat in itself, offering a picturesque view of the hotel's swimming pool below. Bite-sized cakes and a fruit platter awaited us, adding a thoughtful touch to our stay. Modern amenities such as a wireless charging station and universal power socket enhanced our comfort, while the luxurious beddings and elegant marble bathroom provided a sanctuary of relaxation.

The next morning, we indulged in a delightful breakfast buffet at the revamped all-day dining restaurant, Spectrum. The extensive spread included international cuisines, catering to every palate. Alternatively, we had the option to have breakfast at the Fairmont Gold lounge. We were informed by friendly staff, Izabella that we could take out their coffee, a gracious gesture indeed.

Fairmont Gold redefines the standards of hotel service by seamlessly blending luxury, culinary excellence, and personalized attention. From the moment of arrival to the farewell breakfast, every detail is meticulously crafted to ensure an unforgettable experience. It's no surprise that Fairmont Gold is a destination where VIP treatment comes standard.
