Guests of Makati Shangri-La, Manila now have the option of getting chauffeured around town in luxury vehicles as the hotel chooses award-winning German auto brand Audi to serve as its premium mobility provider.
The new partnership fuses together the core values of both groups, which emphasize transformative experiences, impeccable service and reliance on cutting-edge technologies.
Under this fresh alliance, Makati Shangri-La, Manila has chosen the benchmark-setting Audi Q5 2.0 TDI quattro SUV in order to elevate the hotel’s mobility services, as well as address its discerning clientele’s expectations.
Advocating for the partnership are Makati Shangri-La, Manila general manager Gregory Findlay and Audi PH head Benedicto Coyiuto.
Paving the way for the selection of the initial batch of 20 Audi Q5 SUVs was Enterprise Car Lease Philippines, Inc., whose capacity to provide high-end mobility solutions aligns with both Makati Shangri-La, Manila’s and Audi PH’s high standards.
Enterprise Car Lease Philippines, Inc., incorporated in 1992, is the country’s leading automotive rental and leasing provider. It delivers exclusive transport services to major hotels and corporate clients.
