Accor, the largest hotel group in Asia Pacific, said Tuesday it will expand its footprint in the Philippines to 22 hotels over the next five years after signing contracts to manage nine hotels in the country this year.
A leading hotel management corporation, Accor will manage the hotels as the brand expands to more than 5,500 rooms within the next five years from the current 2,127 rooms from eight hotels.
“We are delighted to showcase even more of the Philippines with a wider choice of accommodation that makes as much sense for our hotel owners as much as it does for our guests,” said Patrick Basset, Accor chief operating officer for upper Southeast and Northeast Asia.
The nine new hotels represent an additional 2,155 rooms, increasing the group’s total pipeline to 14 new hotels in the Philippines with more than 3,400 new rooms.
The 14 new properties include the introduction of six brands which will make their debut in the Philippines including Pullman Living, MGallery, Swissôtel, Novotel Living and Ibis Styles.
