“Residing in Rockwell is suitable to our lifestyle. We love the convenience and accessibility to practically everything – A supermarket, specialty shops & dining places, salons, proximity to school & work, recreation facilities and most especially, daily mass at the Power Plant Mall or the Ateneo chapel. Also, we have peace of mind and feel secure at Rockwell, especially when we are out of town or on holidays abroad. Moreover, our married children live nearby and are able to bring our grandchildren to visit us at least a couple of days a week. We are also quite happy with the service and attentiveness of Rockwell Property Management Offices, security and cleaning & maintenance staff.”

— Ricky and Beth Gomez (One Rockwell Residents)

“I have been living in Rockwell since 2004 after I retired from UNESCO Regional Office for Education in Asia and the Pacific, which is based in Bangkok and where I worked and lived for 25 years. Rockwell offers a certain sense of community and belongingness that makes one feel there is a family here, especially if you are living alone. I have befriended the Rockwell Club staff, my Administration Unit staff at Rizal Tower, the guards and the janitors. I have also found friends in other towers – ever caring friends who you can run to for great company and fun.”

— Carmelita Villanueva (President of the Philippine-Thai Cultural Organization and Rizal Resident)



“5-Star Kind of Service”

I’d like to commend Aruga Apartments by Rockwell for their 5-star kind of service! The place is definitely perfect for those who are looking for a staycation area with their family & friends, and still feel very safe at the same time. Even those who are into long-term stays should really consider this since their room is equipped with complete appliances- from the kitchen to the laundry area! You won’t even need to bring a lot of things when you decide to stay here. For convenience, there are nearby coffee shops, restaurants, grocery, and a mall within a walking distance.

We have stayed at Aruga several times when in Manila, the staff are always very kind, polite and helpful. It has everything you need to make your stay enjoyable.

The apartments are clean, spacious and comfortable. The breakfast menu is excellent and the location is ideal for shopping in The Powerplant Mall and there are also plenty of good restaurants nearby.

Sadly this year we had to cut our visit to The Philippines short due to the Coronavirus, but we will return again hopefully next year. Keep up the good work Aruga and stay safe!

“Astounding Experience”

It’s our first time to be in Aruga by Rockwell with my friends for a staycation. We are amazed by how the staff treated us like a special one. The unit was absolutely stunning and wifi was way too strong, I commend! Totally, a new place we found and excited to rebook soon!

“Convenient and Hassle-Free Stay”

Stayed here for a week, and would 100% recommend Aruga to everyone. The room had a complete kitchen amenity (pots and pans, microwave, toaster, refrigerator, utensils); and a washer and dryer. Plus if I ever needed anything like groceries, Power Plant Mall is just across the street. On days when it would rain, I just need to use the basement access of Aruga which connects to the mall – very convenient.

The Aruga team is also very attentive and well trained to handle guests safely during the pandemic. Another perk is that the room I stayed in had a balcony. Whenever it got stuffy to stay indoors, I could just go out to the balcony for some fresh air without the risk of running into people (as it is still a pandemic now).

“Perfect Weekend”

We had a perfect weekend at Aruga by Rockwell! The 2 BR Suite and the 1 BR Suite we booked were both spectacular – it had all the things we needed and the best part was we had the best view of the Rockwell Center. The basement access to the Power Plant Mall was also something we truly appreciate! Special thanks to Sir Rollie of Security for always warmly greeting us whenever we pass by the basement. 😊  We are excited to come back again soon!

“Aruga by Definition”

The stay has been amazing and has no issues at all. Everyone was very accommodating from the guards, to the reception and even to the housekeeping. Great customer service experience from top to bottom. The view of my room is good as well so I can’t complain about that.

“Best Experience Even Before Check-in”

Communicating with the staff prior to check-in was easy, they were very responsive and helpful. Upon check-in, everyone (from the guard to desk staff) made sure we were safe, and comfortable. The location is just a short walk away from anything you could possibly need. Literally across the Power Plant Mall and right beside a Dean & DeLuca. Super quiet, super clean and comfortable amenities, fast wi-fi – this has been an incredible staycation amidst these not-so-ideal times.

“Aruga Stay For My Work”

This is a great hotel with excellent customer service. It is in a perfect location because of its access to the carpark, mall and our office. I am definitely looking forward to staying again at this wonderful hotel.

“Aruga Outperforms Expectations!”

Aruga delivers excellent service and has amazing rooms. The surrounding is very clean, well-lit, comfortable, and has a secure environment. Their employees are friendly and helpful. It outperforms expectations.

“Worth it!”

I love this place, staying here is the best experience I had while staying in Makati. They have great staff and very accommodating service to ensure our needs. Location is just perfect for us to celebrate my brother’s birthday. The room was literally clean and they follow every safety protocol to avoid COVID-19 and I was impressed with all the amenities, it was all modern and all were functioning. I liked the security and privacy that they provided for their customers. I would definitely recommend going back again because their customer’s safety is their top priority.

“Great Stay!”

Had a very comfortable and memorable stay thanks to Calvin and Eloisa. Would highly recommend my friends to stay here. Great value for money. I can’t wait to come back especially after covid so I can eat at the cafe again. Overall pleasant stay!

“New Year with Care”

Celebrated the first days of 2021 with family at Aruga. Loved how our room was laid out. Complete with kitchen utensils. The lighting, furniture and air conditioning made our stay indeed memorable. To more staycations with Aruga, they truly care.

“Great Year-End Stay”

The hotel staff are nice and friendly. The room has everything you need and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel was very close to the mall so if you need to shop or buy something it’s very convenient. Overall experience was excellent. I’ll recommend this hotel to every couple & families.
