Urban aesthetic for a warm community

From the graffiti-inspired murals adorning the walls to the eclectic decors that exude an edgy yet inviting vibe, it is a space of freedom that celebrates self-expression and individuality–and a space that also screams “urban cool.” It is all about creating a welcoming community for like-minded souls. From digital nomads seeking a playground to creative spirits in search of inspiration to curious travelers eager to experience the city’s pulse, lyf Malate offers a unique co-living experience tailored to your working and vacation needs.

Your squad goals headquarters 

The current generation craves a community-driven and enriching sanctuary for collaboration, inspiration, and growth. lyf Malate is designed to offer an environment where people can spend time with each other. In the All Together (two-bedroom and four-bedroom) apartment units, friends and family can bond and have a more fun and meaningful connection. Cook up amazing dishes and share cooking tips and tricks in a social kitchen called Bond; or be productive and collaborative at Connect, lyf’s coworking space and communal lounge, if you want to dwell in a mix of both work and socials.

The other side of the spectrum

For those who prefer solitude, you can recharge at the uber-private One of a Kind (studio bedroom) or duo-friendly Side by Side (twin bedroom) whenever your social batteries drain. Or you can indulge in the peacefulness of lyf’s Nook (private working space), where you can focus on getting things done without worrying about any hassles from the outside world or getting distracted from all the hustle and bustle around you.

Relax or fuel up, take your pick

 Got a long, tiring day? Unwind, let loose, and grab a drink or two while soaking up the stunning views of the city skyline at lyf’s Hang Out (rooftop clubhouse). But if you’ve got too much adrenaline pumping and you swear by the saying “health is wealth”, then catch up with your workout schedule at Burn, a 24-hour fully-equipped social gym. Oh, and don’t forget to clean and dry those sweatpants at the Wash and Hang, lyf’s social laundrette where you can chill or chat–or both!

Delivering personalized and unforgettable experiences

As part of lyf’s initiative to enliven every guest’s experience, the lyf Crew, consisting of lyf Champion (residence manager), lyf Guards (multitaskers), and Ambassadors of Buzz (community managers), is always available to provide tips, advice on how to get around the city better, or even just simply stick around for company.

“Our vision at lyf Malate Manila is to challenge the norm of what an accommodation should be and provide a transformative experience for all of our guests,” said Joyce Pascual–Agsaway, lyf Malate’s Residence Property Manager. “We truly believe that travel and accommodation should be so much more. It should be an opportunity for personal growth, connections, and self-discovery. By embracing unconventional ideas, we aim to empower our guests to experience the new era of hospitality.”

At lyf Malate, the conventional boundaries between living, working, and exploring blur, inviting you to embrace a dynamic lifestyle that explores cultural diversity and goes beyond the norms.
