Robinsons Land Corp. (RLC) is set to complete early next year its 300-room resort hotel in Mactan, Cebu, under the Dusit Thani hospitality brand, as it continues to beef up its expansive real estate portfolio in the province and city of Cebu.
“The five-star resort, which will be the centerpiece of our 10-hectare AmiSa mixed-use complex, will cater to international and domestic tourists and will be a top choice of the MICE market,” said RLC president Frederick D. Go.
Dusit Thani Mactan Cebu Resort is a short drive from the newly expanded and beautifully designed Mactan Cebu International Airport, via the Punta Engano Road.
While this is RLC’s first resort project in Mactan, the property developer has long been involved in the bustling province’s hospitality sector, taking keen interest in the country’s tourism sector and taking advantage of Cebu’s new developments such as the upgrading of Mactan-Cebu Airport.
Considering that Cebu has virtually become the tourist hub of the country, RLC’s move to build hotels in the province will continue to serve this growing tourism market.
The Robinsons Hotels and Resorts Group currently operates two hotels in Cebu City: the 211-room Summit Circle Cebu and the 220-room Summit Galleria Cebu. Both hotels are popular among local and foreign travelers and enjoy high occupancy rates year-round.
Summit Galleria Cebu has a pillar-less ballroom which allows those staging their special events more flexibility. This banquet facility is located adjacent to guest rooms, making it ideal in preparing wedding plans.
The Gokongwei family has been doing business in Cebu for eight decades, having started in the 1940s. Now, their real estate conglomerate, Robinsons Land Corporation, has already established a solid presence in other segments of the Cebu’s real estate business with malls, office buildings, and residential developments.
