February 7 marks a special milestone for Fairmont Makati, as it celebrates its 10th Anniversary.

The Fairmont Makati marked a decade of welcoming guests through its doors by gathering business partners, top event organizers and friends from the media for two special evenings of fine food and drinks. Gracing the occasion were Mark Willis, CEO of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, AyalaLand Hotels and Resorts Corporation President Javi Hernandez and Fairmont Makati’s Cluster General Manager Bernd Schneider. Also in attendance were several members of the Fairmont Makati’s Executive Committee, led by Hotel Manager Aubrey Tolentino – Ada and Director of Sales & Marketing Eugene Tamesis, who have both been part of the Fairmont Makati’s story since its pre-opening days.

Held on the evenings of February 7 and 8, 2023, the venue chosen for the commemoration was the hotel’s own Grand Ballroom, separated into three creative themed spaces, each of which held special surprises and drew inspiration from the recently published coffee table book, “Fairmont: Grand By Design,” an engaging walk through the storied and illustrious past and present of Fairmont Hotels. The evening started with guests being ushered into the “White Room,” which showcased a hall of fame of prestigious guests who have stayed at the hotel over the past ten years. Also in the room was an installation recreating the famous 1969 peace protest “bed-in” held by The Beatles’s John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth in Montreal, where guests could orchestrate their own version of the historical moment. On offer at the bar of the “White Room” was the “Classics Perfected” cocktail line, a series of signature concoctions served in Fairmont hotels around the world, which guests could enjoy while vibing along to lounge music played by the hotel’s resident DJ.  Awaiting guests in the adjacent “Gray Room” was a four-course dinner curated by Executive Chef Bela Rieck, inspired by milestones and moments from notable Fairmont properties across the globe. Each exquisite dish was paired with a fine selection of champagnes and wines personally selected by Bjoern Noeldner, who was recently appointed the hotel’s Director of Food and Beverage in late 2022.  Guests experienced the Fairmont branded playlist while enjoying their sumptuous dinner.  The celebration continued with an after-party featuring Mel Villena’s 10-piece AMP Band in the “Black Room” to cap off the memorable evening, reminiscent of jazz parties and live performances that Fairmont Hotels worldwide are known for. 

The Fairmont Makati, together with its sister properties the Raffles Makati and Raffles Residences Makati, is commemorating ten years of turning moments into memories throughout February with other events in the coming weeks. #ThatFairmontFeeling
