The Oriental goes to Pangasinan
The world-famed Hundred Islands in Alaminos City, Pangasinan will soon be the new home of The Oriental Hotels and Resorts, a popular hotel chain with properties in Albay, Bataan, Tagaytay, and Leyte.
The Oriental’s president and chief executive Marie Abigail Lee was in Pangasinan to break ground for The Oriental Hundred Islands.
The soon-to-rise 100-room hotel is located at the jump-off point to the famed national park of 123 islets in the Lingayen Gulf.
Set to be completed next year, The Oriental Hundred Islands will sport tropical-themed, contemporary Filipino architecture and design complete with natural materials such as shell, rattan, wood, and bamboo. The resort will have private villas, seafood and al fresco dining, infinity pool, cabanas, a 1,000-person pavilion, spa and fitness center, and water sports recreation.
It will also preserve and enhance the gazebo with the monuments of Princesa Urduja and Lim Ah Hong, Pangasinan’s legendary characters.
According to Lee, the project is a public-private partnership with the City Government of Alaminos to upgrade the tourist services and further boost arrivals in the area.
