The Philippines’ luxury new hotel openings scheduled for 2019/20
The Philippines Department of Tourism is pleased to announce that a number of new hotel developments are set to be unveiled in late 2019 and 2020. The Philippines is already home to some of the world’s most luxurious resorts and hotels, however, due to the country’s increasing tourism popularity, further hotel developments are currently underway.
Norjamin Delos Reyes, Tourism Attaché at Philippine Department of Tourism Australia and New Zealand said,
“With our innumerable tropical islands, far flung beaches, festivals, wildlife sanctuaries, world-renowned dive sites, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, historical sites, art precincts, shopping hotspots, and dining and nightlife options, there’s no question that the Philippines’ appeal is growing. As a country, it is rapidly emerging as the must-see destination in Southeast Asia. We have 7,641 islands for visitors to explore and enjoy and, with travellers constantly seeking new destinations, the Philippines’ popularity is continuing to rise. We already have a beautiful offering of world-class resorts and hotels, however we are excited by the prospect of the new developments that will be unveiled in 2019 and 2020.”
