Bilyonaryo Andrew Tan’s Megaworld Corp. is building a 306-room hotel within its 462-hectare eco-tourism township in San Vicente, Palawan.
Savoy Hotel will be Megaworld’s first hotel in Palawan and the group’s 17th under its homegrown hotel brands.
Packed with amenities, the 10-storey Savoy Palawan is slated for opening in 2028. It will just be a five minute walk to the beach and just a few steps away from the township’s Mangrove Reserve Park.
“This will be our first hotel in Palawan, which will be the fourth Savoy Hotel in our portfolio. As we continue to tap on the rising opportunities in Philippine tourism, we also hope to meet the demand for accommodations in San Vicente, which is known to have the longest beach line in the entire country,” said Cleofe Albiso, managing director at Megaworld Hotels and Resorts.
Albiso said Savoy Palawan is being positioned as a luxury green hotel. Its equipment and machines will be certified ‘energy-efficient.”
The hotel will also be using recycled water for washing from its rain harvesting facility.
Out of the 17 hotel properties launched, 12 are operational while five more are in the pipeline including Savoy Palawan and Grand Westside Hotel in Parañaque City, which is poised to be the biggest hotel in the Philippines once it opens.
The group has around 4,500 hotel room keys, which include Richmonde Hotel Ortigas, Eastwood Richmonde Hotel, Richmonde Hot groupel Iloilo, Savoy Hotel Newport, Savoy Hotel Boracay, Savoy Hotel Mactan Newtown, Belmont Hotel Manila, Belmont Hotel Boracay, Belmont Hotel Mactan, Kingsford Hotel Manila, Twin Lakes Hotel in Tagaytay, and Hotel Lucky Chinatown in Binondo, Manila.
