Tycoon Andrew Tan’s Megaworld will open its first hotel development within Mactan Newtown, its 30-hectare township in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu, next month.
The P1.7 billion Savoy hotel will offer introductory rates of P3,288 to P5,888 per night, inclusive of buffet breakfast for two, depending on the room category.
Designed by world-renowned Hirsch Bedner Associates, the 18-story hotel will have 547 guestrooms and suites, targeting mostly business travelers and family vacationers because of its close accessibility to the beach and resorts around Mactan,
Hirsch is the same company that designed Marina Bay Sands and Fullerton Hotel in Singapore, as well as Shangri-La Dubai and St. Regis Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.
To be operated by Megaworld Hotels, Savoy Hotel Mactan will offer complimentary shuttle services to and from the Mactan Newtown Beach. Transport services will also be offered to guests traveling to and from the Mactan-Cebu International Airport.
This will be the third hotel under the Savoy Hotel brand, a homegrown hotel chain established by Megaworld. The first two are located in Boracay Newcoast and in Newport City in Pasay City.
Apart from Savoy, Megaworld has four other homegrown hotel brands — Richmonde, Belmont, Twin Lakes and Hotel Lucky Chinatown — with around 3,200 hotel rooms.
In the next 5 years, the company will also open new homegrown hotel brands in Parañaque, Bacolod, Iloilo, Boracay, and Laguna.
