HILTON Worldwide has inked an agreement with Travellers International Hotel Group to manage Hilton Manila in Newport City, the Philippines, its first property in the country’s capital.
Opening in 2014, the 350-room hotel will sit close to Terminal 3 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport and 3.5km from Manila’s central business district, Makati.
To be developed by Alliance Global Group and Genting Group, the hotel will be connected to a 30,000m2 entertainment and hospitality complex. The 10-storey hotel will offer an all-day dining restaurant, a specialty restaurant, a bar and lobby lounge, a fitness club, an indoor pool and a spa, as well as event spaces.
“Manila is the political, economic, social and cultural centre of the Philippines and a leading gateway destination in South-east Asia. The announcement fully demonstrates our ongoing commitment to growing aggressively in Asia-Pacific and re-establishes both Hilton Worldwide’s and the Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand’s presence in the Philippines,” said Andrew Clough, senior vice president, development, Middle East & Asia Pacific, Hilton Worldwide.
