Group has signed a deal with The Erawan Group to open a Holiday
Inn hotel in Cebu, Philippines.
Set to open at the end of 2020, the new-build, 180-room
Holiday Inn Cebu City will be situated at Samar Loop in the heart
of the Cebu Business Park.
Alongside multinational companies ranging from business process
outsourcing to industries, the business park houses local and foreign financial institutions, as well as its lifestyle and
leisure centerpiece — the 9-hectare Ayala Center Cebu shopping
mall, which draws 60,000 visitors daily.
Located in the same tower as Erawan Philippines’ owned
Hop Inn hotel, Holiday Inn Cebu City will be situated on the upper
floors with its own separate entrance, lift and lobby.
Holiday Inn Cebu City will feature meeting facilities, a
fitness centre and swimming pool, an all-day dining restaurant and
bar, as well as the signature ‘Kids Stay & Eat Free’ programme,
which offers complimentary stays and meals for children under the
age of 12.
Rajit Sukumaran, Chief Development Officer EMEAA
East, IHG said, “Cebu has enjoyed steady economic growth in recent
years, thanks in part to its strong port facilities and excellent
geographic location which have made it especially popular amongst
multinational businesses. With the upcoming completion of the
Mactan-Cebu International Airport — the second busiest airport in
the Philippines — later this year, we are expecting a further
increase in visitors, including those travelling on business.”
there are currently 1,216 Holiday Inn hotels (more than 225,000
rooms) open, with 277 in the development pipeline for the next
three to five years.
