Accor is strengthening its presence in the Philippines with the signing of two new establishments in Clark, which will open in 2025.
The dual site agreement with Hann Resorts will bring the well-established partnership to six hotels in the city.
Located in the luxury integrated complex Hann Lux, the two new hotels will be called Sofitel Clark and Emblems Clark. The Sofitel Clark will include 300 rooms while the Emblems Clark will include 200 rooms.
Both will include all-day dining and specialty dining, as well as pools, spas, fitness centers, meeting and conference spaces, and executive lounges.
Garth Simmons, CEO of Accor, Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea, said: “We are proud to extend our strategic relationship with Hann as part of this historic multi-agreement signing. This reaffirms the trust owners place in Accor, our relationship-driven approach to partners, and the popularity of our brands fueled by strong distribution and lifestyle loyalty platforms. We are also delighted and extremely proud to present two very special properties to the dynamic Clark. Sofitel Clark and Emblems Clark will both bring an iconic sense of luxury to Hann Lux, and we are thrilled to work with our valued partners, Hann Philippines, to bring their unique vision to life.
Daesik Han, Chairman and CEO of Hann Philippines Inc (HPI) added, “We are delighted to further expand our partnership with Accor, a global leader in the hospitality industry. Having Sofitel Clark and Emblems Clark at Hann Lux will surely make it a famous destination, attracting tourists not only from all over the Philippines but also from all over the world.
In 2019, Accor and Hann signed multi-agreements for Banyan Tree Clark, Angsana Clark, Mercure Clark and Swissôtel Clark. The first phase of Swissôtel Clark launched in February 2022, with the larger resort set to debut later this year, with 372 rooms and five lively restaurants and bars.
Accor currently has 10 hotels in operation in the Philippines across three regions and a pipeline of 14 committed projects across the country, including the 195-room Sofitel Cebu City, the 200-key Pullman Manila at Primex Tower and the upcoming Pullman Davao.
The Sofitel family now has more than 120 hotels in 47 countries with more than 20 hotels in the pipeline, while the recently launched luxury Emblems collection is targeting 60 openings worldwide by 2030.
