After your sojourn to see the statues, you may be interested in seeing some iconic buildings in Makati. Right beside Ayala Triangle, you can find the Philippine Stock Exchange Plaza. Take in the timeless covered plaza, that can make you feel small. But do make sure you aren’t in the way of busy businessmen.

In recent years, larger structures in Makati have risen up to modern design, and environmental challenges. The Zuellig building is one of those new kids on the block. Also designed by Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill, the building is one of the few in Asia with a platinum LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating for green architecture.

Another unique building in the area is Discovery Primea. Designed by architectural god, Kenzo Tange, and standing proudly where the famed Gilarmi Apartments once were, Primea breathes new life into Makati’s skyline.

Being one of the tallest buildings on Ayala Avenue, Discovery Primea truly sets itself apart. Photo taken from thephilippineskylines.tumblr.com

Reviews

  • “It feels like home! Truly a service with a heart .. Keep it up!”

    Shan D., Tripadvisor

  • “Stayed at the Discovery Primea Makati for two nights in May in their Two Bedroom Primea Suite. This is truly an above and beyond hotel which after its soft launch I would be surprised doesn’t get fully booked straight away! Will now always make the Discovery Primea my hotel choice in Manila. Will be back next year!”

  • “I have stayed at many hotels in the City and have by far enjoyed this stay the most. From the moment I arrived I was greeted by warm and friendly staff who were very accommodating. The stand out for me is the apartment style facilities. A home away from home. Spacious rooms and modern appliances with a vast array of Chef inspired menu options. Will be back soon.”

  • “A truly exceptional hotel. Very friendly and accomodating personnel, luscious food to die for, exceptional facilities with an exceptional view of BGC, Makati and Ortigas Skyline, and top notch accessibility. We’ll be back for sure.”

  • Great ambiance, service and food. From the lobby to our room, the experience was beyond words could describe. Kudos especially to housekeeping for the upkeep of the room. I would definitely recommend this hotel chain to my family and friends.
