Local hotel chain Astoria Hotels & Resorts has spent P1.5 billion so far for the ongoing development of Astoria Palawan in Puerto Princesa City.
The resort is now furnished with 30 new premier villas, with direct access to the Sulu Sea beachfront. This brings to 146 the total number of rooms for Astoria Palawan.
The total investment covers the Palawan Waterpark by Astoria, which features an expansive wave pool, tall water slides and a lazy river ride, among others.
“This investment is proof of our belief in the continued growth of foreign tourists, our commitment to develop the countryside as part of our nation-building efforts, and to make a positive impact on human capital by providing avenues for gainful employment to our fellow Filipinos,” said hotel chain president Jeffrey Ng.
Astoria Palawan also launched corporate social responsibility initiatives to help the underprivileged.
The hotel recently hosted fisherfolk and farmers to its Sikap Pinoy event, where Astoria Palawan’s invited speakers shared life goals and simple financial educational tools with the locals.
