Property developer Megaworld Corp. is set to open the 442-room Belmont Hotel in Boracay Island, the country’s premier tourist destination.
Megaworld said in a disclosure to the stock exchange the P2.1-billion Belmont Hotel Boracay is a three-tower hotel located within the 150-hectare Boracay Newcoast township.
The hotel features choices of deluxe twin or queen, premiere deluxe and executive suites, with sizes ranging from 27 square meters to 52 sqm.
“Our second hotel under the Belmont brand will offer an exclusive nature experience in the paradise island of Boracay, as it allows guests to see the island’s panoramic natural scenery from one building to another—from the vast sea to the lush mountains and hills of the island and other nearby islands,” said Raymundo Melendrez, managing director of Luxury Global Hotels and Leisure Inc., the company operating Belmont Hotels under the Megaworld Hotels Group.
Belmont Hotel Boracay offers all-day dining at Belmont Café, featuring cuisines with Asian and Mediterranean influences. Located within the ground level, the restaurant will utilize local fresh farm produce to support the farmers in Aklan and other nearby provinces.
The hotel also features a wide array of amenities and services that include a swimming pool and in-pool lounge, Aqua Spa, courtyard, landscaped gardens, fitness center with shower and changing rooms, business center, function halls, meeting rooms, a full-time concierge, 24-hour in-room dining service and complimentary shuttle services.
Belmont Hotel is the second homegrown hotel brand introduced under Megaworld Hotels. The first Belmont Hotel opened in Newport City in 2015. Another Belmont Hotel is set to open in Iloilo Business Park by 2023.
Megaworld Hotels has already opened five homegrown brands: Richmonde Hotels, Belmont Hotels, Savoy Hotels, Twin Lakes Hotel and Hotel Lucky Chinatown with close to 3,000 hotel rooms.
The company will open new homegrown hotel brands in Parañaque, Bacolod, Iloilo, Boracay and Laguna over the next five years.
