Its towering height and glittering lobby will leave you in awe. I’M Hotel, the newest hotel in Makati Ave will surely catch your attention.
I’M Hotel is designed by renowned Singapore-based interior designer Suying Metropolitan Studio, while the artworks are supplied by Bai Tian Yuan, Raphael Gallegos, and Dee Jae Pa’este.
I’m Hotel is the first 5 Star Hotel in Poblacion, Makati and boasts of 434 guest rooms, 7 Meeting Rooms, 1 Ballroom, 4 Restaurants, and the largest urban spa property in the country–the Onsen Spa.
As soon as you enter I’m Hotel, you will be greeted by smiles at this spacious lobby. Each staff member is knowledgeable about everything in the hotel and they are also very efficient with requests.
I stayed in a 1-Bedroom Executive Suite which is on the higher floors of the hotel. It has a balcony with an amazing view of Makati and Mandaluyong.
The room is equipped with 1 King Sized Bed and the room is at around 57sqm, big enough to do cartwheels!
Check out this executive writing desk for business travelers. You can slide out a part of the desk if you need a bigger area for work.
Aside from the television in the bedroom, there is also a living area equipped with the same 49-inch smart LED Television.
What I loved about I’m Hotel is their Kitchenette. The movable wall hides the kitchen area and the washing machine. It is complete with an electric stove, microwave, fridge, cookware, and dinnerware. This is perfect for those who come in for longer stays–you can cook and even wash your clothes.
I’ve always been particular with hotel bathrooms and I’M Hotel’s didn’t disappoint. The dark marble and cabinets are a good display of elegance.
There is a bathtub, rain shower head and designer bath amenities. The bathroom is also equipped with a hair dryer and weighing scale.
I’M Hotel’s bard, Mermaid Bar, is located by the poolside and is a celebration of food and music. They offer bar chows that are perfectly paired with their signature cocktails and spirits.
As soon as I entered the pool area, I was greeted by these bird cages hanging above the swimming pool where you can lounge and relax.
The most iconic part of the pool area though is the acrylic-bottomed infinity pool which is perfect for laps or lounging.
After swimming in the pool, we are quite sure you’ll be hungry. Good thing there’s Bloom Restaurant, an all-day dining resto at I’M Hotel.
Bloom is where guests can sit down for their complimentary breakfast. I had a typical Filipino Breakfast (as pictured above) but the mouthwatering buffet menu comprises of exquisite seasonal ingredients.
Aside from Bloom Restaurant, there are other dining options, too. The hotel takes pride in utilizing fresh local produce and organic herbs that grow on the hotel’s very own garden. If you are craving Chinese food, Empress Jade is right by the reception area of I’M Hotel. If you like tapas, there’s the rooftop bar which highlights a luminescent jellyfish tank along with the beautiful Makati skyline.
I’M Hotel’s fitness center is one of the most beautiful hotel gyms I’ve been to. It is spacious and complete with equipment for whatever kind of workout you enjoy.
I’M Hotel’s Onsen Spa is the largest in the country. The spa actually has its own elevators to service the large facility. It is comprised of 6 floors with around 69 beds, and is 3,800 sqm big. It features a unique carbonated bath imported from Japan. Guests can choose from communal beds to couple rooms with jacuzzis or steam rooms, executive, and VIP rooms.
Onsen is Japanese for “hot spring” and I’M Hotel has the country’s first thermal bath that has the same mineral composition of the hot springs in Japan. The spa packages also come with complimentary tea and buffet at Bloom Restaurant.
Introductory rates on I’M Onsen Spa’s all-inclusive spa packages start at only P1,500 nett, including any 60 min treatment, buffet at Bloom Restaurant of I’M Hotel, complimentary wellness teas at their tea lounge, access to the onsen, steam and sauna rooms, and relaxing tea lounge.
