Century Properties Group Inc. said Thursday it will open this month the 152-room Novotel Suites Manila in Mandaluyong City, its first hospitality venture.
CPG said in a statement Novotel Suites Manila would open its doors to guests on Dec. 15 to take advantage of the travel boom expected during the holiday season.
“December is an opportune time for Novotel Suites Manila to open as Century Properties can actively participate and address the demand surge for tourism and leisure travel, which is also in line with the government’s thrust to promote the industry,” CPG president and chief executive Marco Antonio said.
Antonio also said the increased number of multinational companies based in Taguig and Makati provided Century Properties a chance to accommodate the demand for intimate gatherings and meetings given the hotel’s strategic location.
CPG said the hotel opening was timed with the easing of movement restrictions and the government’s continued push for tourism.
Novotal Suites Manila, which was conceptualized in partnership with hotel powerhouse Accor, will be the sixth and final tower of Acqua Private Residences.
The tower’s upper floors are allocated for residential condominium units, which have been sold out. The mid-scale hotel will be wholly-operated by CPG.
Hotel room sizes range from 32 to 87 square meters. Guests will be treated to various amenities including a pool, a restaurant and bar, a lounge cafe, a pastry shop and a fitness center once the hotel opens. Meeting rooms are also available for small-scale business events.
“We are excited to welcome tourists, as well as residents and their guests at Acqua Private Residences so that they can enjoy the hotel’s F&B offerings,” Novotel Suites Manila general manager Raul Aquino said.
The hotel is accessible via various points in Makati and Mandaluyong cities, mainly via the Estrella-Pantaleon and Makati-Mandaluyong bridges that cross the Pasig River. A few minutes away is EDSA, which has a direct link to the airport via the Skyway.
CPG, which has been known for high-rise development, has been diversifying to other related businesses including affordable house-and-lot projects, retail and office developments to expand its revenue source.
