World’s largest Pullman Hotel to rise in Cebu

Amid the hustle and bustle of congested city life, many have been looking for an escape and seeking to unwind in luxury destinations by the seaside. As they finally find the time to relax away from the usual city noise, some cannot help but wonder if it is possible to live with their families in such a serene place.

With the post-pandemic landscape seeing more people be drawn to a lifestyle of balancing work and play, leading international hotel operator Accor has partnered with real estate developer Tytans Property Development for the creation of the Pullman Mactan Cebu Hotel & Residences, a beachfront branded residential community in Mactan, Cebu.

Tytans Properties Development Chairman Gerald Tan noted that there had been a shift in the lifestyle preferences of people following the post-pandemic era.

“What happened after the pandemic [was that] a lot of people started demanding [a] work-from-home [set up]. That’s what happened. Everything changed so we need to bring in somehow the offering for people to live comfortably,” said Tan.

Set to become the largest Pullman property with 1,100 keys for guests and residents, the Pullman Mactan Cebu Hotel & Residences will be a modern tropical oasis three kilometers from the Mactan-Cebu International Airport.

Featuring a design from the mind of a Cebuano architect, the beachfront destination will have three towers that will house a total of 200 stylish guest rooms and suites as well as 900 branded residences. The development will also have sophisticated amenities and full-service facilities for its guests and residences such as restaurants, lounges, leisure areas, and corporate spaces.

“Cebu City, with its distinctive blend of urban vibrancy and coastal charm, presents an ideal locale to cater to diverse markets. Pullman Mactan Cebu Hotel & Residences will attract a wide variety of homeowners and guests, from leisure enthusiasts to corporate travelers seeking extended stays. This project is poised to redefine premium living and hospitality experiences in Cebu,” said Garth Simmons, chief operating officer of Accor, Asia.

Tan projects that the construction of the entire development will take between six and seven years. Construction for the tower designated for hotel rooms will begin in 2025 and is set to begin welcoming guests in 2028.
