(19 June 2017. Pasay City, Philippines) SM Supermalls’ 62nd mall, S Maison, has taken malling to a level that brings with it Epicurean dining and high fashion retail brands.
S Maison has introduced unique dining and retail concepts and is soon to launch more in the coming months to further excite travelers both local and foreign. Its ultimate tenant mix of 43% food and 57% retail and services ensures a taste of luxury and diversity.
With 90% of the mall leased, Steven Tan, Senior Vice President for SM Supermalls said that S Maison will soon welcome new dining brands such as Sarabeth’s of New York, a brunch spot frequented by Hollywood stars; Singapore casual bistro and café Olivia and Co. and something from home, SiamAroi, a sought after hole-in-the wall restaurant run by a Thai husband and wife tandem that serves authentic Thai cuisine which has its roots in Makati.
This joins the interesting mix of dining and cafe concepts already at the mall such as Chibo, Osaka’s most popular okonomiyaki brand; Mazendo, which serves authentic Taiwan style beef noodles; Singapore’s Paradise Dynasty which offers various flavors of xiao long bao, including the famous truffle and foie gras versions; Bijin Nabe by Tsukada Nojo which serves a special collagen hotpot; Starbucks Reserve, the first outlet that offers the Experience Bar or exotic coffee variants brewed according to the customer’s preference and Recession Coffee where you can dictate the price of a cup of coffee.
“SM Supermalls is always on the lookout for something new. We bring global specialty concepts from Japan, Singapore, and Taiwan, among many others, all establishing their first stores in the Philippines right here in S Maison, the 62nd of SM Supermalls. At the same time, we have world-class Filipino brands and services in S Maison,” Tan said.
More than food, S Maison’s interior is, in itself, a feast for the eyes. Located within the Conrad Manila’s two lower floors and spanning over 25,000 square meters, its sleek, dramatic yet modern interior was recently feted by the Prix Versailles World Architecture Awards at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris for design excellence in Interior Spaces, South Asia and the Pacific Shopping Malls category. Designed by Malherbe of France, S Maison’s interiors feature high-tech modernism with pearlescent Italian floors and iridescent metal accents to stimulate the feeling of being encased in a pearl.
“S Maison was created for people who want more spaces to relax and who are looking at our elevated retail offerings. It doesn’t compete with the hustle and bustle of the Mall of Asia but complements it,” Tan said. As a matter of fact, it offers a well curated assortment of retail brands not found at Mall of Asia, well-appointed beauty and wellness services, and Director’s Club cinemas to complete the shoppers’ S Maison experience.
The upscale mall is home to the Cole Haan, Zero Halliburton, True Religion and Paris Miki flagship stores, also to retail brands like De Novo Studio, Swiss Gear, Titan, Fully Booked, Digital Walker, Moressi, Rosa Clara, Yankee Candle, Empire Golf and Mega Blue Bird. Other retail brands like Pandora, Joseph; curated collections like Assembly; and branded services like Belo Medical Clinic, Teng Roma Salon and Gan Advanced Osseointegration Center (GAOC) have likewise made their way to S Maison.
Complementing the dining and retail options are three Director’s Club theaters that have a capacity of 38 seats per theatre with La-Z-Boy Power Recline XR+ seats equipped with a combination of reclining positions including stress free zero gravity.
“S Maison is a testament to SM Supermalls’ unwavering pursuit to deliver the most delightful of malling experiences,” Tan said during S Maison’s launch Wednesday night.
