MANILA, Philippines — Andrew Tan-led Megaworld  is hoping to capitalize on Palawan’s  growing tourism potential.

The company is building the 10-story Savoy Palawan, which will be Megaworld’s first hotel property in the province, according to Cleofe Albiso, managing director of Megaworld Hotels and Resorts.

Savoy Palawan is scheduled for opening in 2028.

“As we continue to tap on the rising opportunities in Philippine tourism, we also hope to meet the demand for accommodations in San Vicente, which is known to have the longest beach line in the entire country,” Albiso said.

Savoy Hotel, which will be the fourth Savoy Hotel in the company’s portfolio, will offer 306 guest rooms and suites in varied layouts.

It will add to Megaworld’s growing hotel portfolio comprising around 4,500 hotel rooms  from Richmonde Hotel Ortigas, Eastwood Richmonde Hotel, Richmonde Hotel Iloilo, Savoy Hotel Newport, Savoy Hotel Boracay, Savoy Hotel Mactan Newtown, Belmont Hotel Manila, Belmont Hotel Boracay, Belmont Hotel Mactan, Kingsford Hotel Manila, Twin Lakes Hotel in Tagaytay, and Hotel Lucky Chinatown in Binondo, Manila.

It will be the 17th hotel property launched by Megaworld Hotels and Resorts, of which 12 are already operational while five more are in the pipeline including Savoy Palawan and Grand Westside Hotel in Parañaque City, which is poised to be the biggest hotel in the Philippines once it opens.

Savoy Palawan will rise in Megaworld’s 462-hectare Paragua Coastown in San Vicente, Palawan.

Amenities include a swimming pool with a separate kiddie pool, and a pool deck at the third level of the hotel.

It will also have its own fitness center, spa with wet and dry sauna, and a kid’s club.

There will also be four food and beverage outlets in the hotel: an all-day dining restaurant with alfresco area, Zabana Bar & Lounge, Grill Bar with Outdoor Dining, and a specialty restaurant.
