Mr Arthur Gindap, Ascott's Regional General Manager for the Philippines and Thailand, said, “The opening of Citadines Millennium Ortigas Manila marks Ascott’s first foray into Ortigas Center, the Philippines’ second most important financial district after Makati where we have an established presence with four operating properties. Our first Citadines in the Philippines, Citadines Salcedo Makati, is performing well with an occupancy rate of 80%. Bringing Citadines to the heart of Ortigas Center expands our reach to a  ready catchment of expatriates and business travellers. Guests at Citadines Millennium Ortigas Manila can enjoy the bustling area with a wide variety of shopping, dining and entertainment options nearby, as well as the flexibility to personalise their stay with the services they require.”

 Mr Gindap added: “We continue to see strong potential for growth in the Philippines, which is forecasted by the World Bank to grow close to 7% annually over the next three years, making it one of the top performing economies in East Asia. Ascott has an established 17-year track record in the Philippines having grown our portfolio to 16 serviced residences with over 3,400 units, comprising three award-winning brands. This includes nine properties with more than 1,900 units that we plan to open in the next six years.”

Citadines Millennium Ortigas Manila is a 10-minute walk to the Ortigas MRT Station, and about a 50 minute-drive to Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

 The serviced residence offers 293 contemporary units ranging from studio to one, two and three-bedroom apartments.

Facilities such as a residents’ lounge overlooking the city, swimming pool, fitness centre, restaurants, function rooms, and garden deck are available.

To mark the opening of the property, Citadines Millennium Ortigas Manila is offering daily opening rates starting from PHP 4,000++ until September 2017.

 In the Philippines, Ascott currently manages Ascott Bonifacio Global City Manila, Ascott Makati, Citadines Salcedo Makati, Somerset Alabang Manila, Somerset Millennium Makati and Somerset Olympia Makati.

Ascott, the largest international serviced residence company in the Philippines, plans to open another nine serviced residences across Metro Manila, Cebu and Iloilo from 2018 to 2023.
