Ascott and Torre Lorenzo create a new kind of communal dorms
The Ascott Limited Philippines Executives turns over a new leaf in the hospitality industry with the unveiling of The Suites at Torre Lorenzo Manila in Malate. A residential area meant to provide the ultimate urban lifestyle experience to people from all walks of life, it is well furnished with tasteful decorations and modern facilities, all at close proximity to the key sites and places in the metro.
Lyf Champion and The Suites at Torre Lorenzo Malate’s residence manager Joyce Pascual–Agsaway explains that the development, launched June 30, 2023, has two properties— The Suites and lyf Malate Manila.
Being in the hospitality industry for 17 years, Agsaway has worked in top luxury hotel chains, but she admits that working in this new project with The Ascott group and Torre made her not only think out of the box—“It made me destroy the box,” she said. With the launching of the other property which is Lyf Malate Manila, a unique communal space of its kind in the Philippines, Agsaway said that it gave them the opportunity to be creative.
Lyf Manila caters to the next-generation traveler, “It is a communal space that fosters collaborations and dynamic lifestyle.”
The interiors ranging from the communal kitchen, lounge area to the laundromat offer a more vibrant, more modern, contemporary designs. Its aim is to create a sense of community among guests. This is where Torre Lorenzo became the perfect collaborator in this project for having a strong grip of the student market, perfect for potential student dorm alternatives. Lyf Manila is basically socially extrovert in design and has 207 rooms, which gives a more dynamic, more socially engaging experience.
