Worldhotels to Open First Branded Hotel in the Philippines with the 401-key
Worldhotel and Residences Makati; Opening Planned for Q4 2013

(Hong Kong, May 1, 2012)
– Worldhotels, the exclusive collection of independent hotels, has announced its first branded hotel in the Philippines.

Worldhotel and Residences Makati is scheduled to open in the last quarter of 2013 in Makati Avenue, Metro Manila.

The deluxe 4-star property features 252 guest rooms, including 72 suites, whilst the residences will feature 149 serviced apartments.

Facilities include four restaurants and two bars, in addition to a ballroom, gym, spa lounge, massage, meeting rooms and business centre.

Worldhotel and Residences Makati is the first of five branded hotels currently earmarked by Worldhotels for development over the next decade.

The unique new ‘Worldhotel’ branded hotel solution has been enthusiastically greeted by independent Asian hoteliers since its launch last year.

The first branded hotel in Asia was Worldhotel Saltanat in Almaty Kazakhstan, followed by Worldhotel Grand Juna Wuxi in China. It extended to India recently with the opening of Worldhotel Turquoise Chandigarh.

Under the solution, Worldhotels provides consultancy, technical support and management services to independent hotels during construction or renovation.

It also brings a recognised and respected identity under the Worldhotels brand – along with sales and marketing through its established global distribution network.

“We are pleased to announce that the Worldhotel branding is now extended to The Philippines,” said Roland Jegge, Worldhotels Vice President Asia-Pacific. “The branded hotel solution offers one of the most flexible models in the world for upscale independent properties and hotel groups, enabling them to position themselves internationally in the face of competition from global hospitality brands.”
