LAST September, the Makati Shangri-La Hotel formally received 31 units of the Passat limousines from Volkswagen Philippines during a ceremonial hand over.

The formal turnover marks the beginning of a partnership between Makati Shangri-La and Volkswagen Philippines, both of which carry the world’s most prestigious hotel and automotive brands that espouse style and sophistication for their respective markets. It also completes the total of 80 Volkswagen vehicles purchased by the hotel, including 40 units of the compact sedan Jetta, among others.

The Shangri-La brand name is renowned globally for its rich tradition of innovation and personalized service from the heart. These remarkable standards inspired Shangri-La to select Volkswagen, which delivers the same promise that embodies the perfect combination.

The Makati Shangri-La Hotel was recently voted as the “Best Business Hotel in Manila” by Business Traveller (Asia Pacific), a distinction it has held for seven consecutive years since 2009.

The Passat limousine was awarded the 2015 European Car of the Year and it was also recognized in the 2015 Geneva Motor Show for Best in Class Performance on interior and technology.

The acquisition of the Passat, Jetta and other Volkswagen cars was accomplished by Nissan Car Lease Philippines, whose motto, “Premium service for premium people,” aligns well with Shangri-La’s luxury hospitality, and highlights the mission and expertise of NCLP as a premium transport provider. NCLP is one of the best known car rental brands in the Philippines with over 24 years of unequalled service to its distinguished clientele. For NCLP, the fleet of Volkswagen cars for Makati Shangri-La’s guests enhance its services’ portfolio, while at the same time highlight the hotel and automaker’s credo of putting “people first.”

The Passat, which bears a rich 42-year lineage, comes straight from Germany, with German-tuned driving dynamics and a responsive and efficient BlueMotion 2.0-liter TSI engine generating 220 PS, managed by the 6-speed dual-clutch Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) transmission.
