Megaworld Corp. said Thursday it is building its first hotel in Palawan, the 10-story Savoy Hotel, which will rise on the 462-hectare Paragua Coast Town in San Vicente.
The aforementioned hotel will feature 306 rooms and suites of various designs for travelers on the island, according to the company.
This will be our first hotel in Palawan, and the fourth Savoy hotel in our portfolio. As we continue to take advantage of the growing 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,” Cleof Albiso, Managing Director of Megaworld Hotels and Resorts said.
Savoy Palawan is a five-minute walk from the beach, and just a few steps from the city’s Mangrove Reserve Park.
It will have its own pool with a separate children’s pool, and a pool deck on the third level of the hotel. It will also have its own fitness center, spa with wet and dry saunas, and kids club.
There will also be four food and beverage outlets at the hotel, including an all-day dining restaurant with alfresco area, Zabana Bar and Lounge, Grill Bar with alfresco dining, and a specialty restaurant.
The Savoy Palawan will also have its own ballroom, smaller function rooms with designated pre-function areas as well as a business center and meeting room.
Suite and VIP guests will also have exclusive access to the Executive Lounge, which serves drinks and appetizers all day, as well as breakfast in the morning.
The Savoy Palawan will highlight some sustainability features that will make it an environmentally friendly luxury hotel. Hotel equipment and machinery will be certified as “energy efficient” and we will also use recycled water for washing from our rain harvesting facility. Since Paragua Coasttown will also be a bike-friendly community, we will have bike facilities in our hotel,” Albiso said.
Savoy Palawan is scheduled to open in 2028. The hotel will be the 17th hotel launched by Megaworld Hotels and Resorts.
Of the 17 launched hotels, 12 are in operation while five more are in the pipeline, including Hotel Palawan and Grand Westside Hotel in Paranayaki City, which is expected to be the largest hotel in the Philippines once it opens.
