Best Western to Open Hotel in Puerto Princesa, Philippines

Best Western is to expand its global portfolio of hotels to Puerto Princesa, the largest city on the tropical island of Palawan, in the Philippines.

Scheduled to open in June 2016, Best Western Plus Ivy Wall is located just a few minutes from Puerto Princesa International Airport, which has regular flight connections to Manila and other cities across the Philippines.

The hotel is also just a 90-minute drive from the stunning UNESCO World Heritage-listed Puerto Princesa Underground River.

Puerto Princesa and the island of Palawan are becoming new tourist hotspots in Southeast Asia, with an increasing number of travelers eager to experience this tropical paradise, said Olivier Berrivin, Best Western Hotels & Resorts Managing Director of International Operations - Asia. With idyllic beaches and bays and the breath-taking Puerto Princesa Underground River, which has been listed as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature, Puerto Princesa is a wonderfully unique and attractive destination for tourists.

The Best Western Plus Ivy Wall will offer 120 rooms and suites, all of which feature 42-inch LCD televisions, DVD players, mini-bars, work desks and complimentary tea and coffee making facilities.

And as with all Best Western hotels worldwide, Wi-Fi will be free-of-charge both in guest rooms and public areas.

When they are not exploring the stunning local scenery, guests will be able to unwind with a treatment at the hotels spa, plunge into the tropical outdoor swimming pool, or enjoy local and international cuisine at the on-site restaurant. There is also a poolside bar, allowing guests to unwind with a refreshing cold drink during the heat of the day.

For the corporate and events market, the hotel will offer a business center, three meeting rooms and a 300m ballroom, plus a VIP dining room which is served by a private butler and can host intimate dinners.

Best Western Plus Ivy Wall becomes the eighth Best Western hotel in the Philippines, joining existing properties in Manila, Makati City, Cebu City, Subic Bay and the resort island of Boracay.
