MANILA, THE PHILIPPINES — Accor has announced the signing of Pullman Manila at Primex Tower, a 200-room property slated for completion in 2023. The upscale hotel will be housed within San Juan’s tallest building, Primex Tower, which is currently under construction in the Greenhills district of San Juan, Metro Manila.
The mixed-use development by Primex Realty Corporation will incorporate retail and office spaces on the lower floors, with the hotel situated on the floors above. Primex Tower is located in the upscale Filipino-Chinese residential area of Metro Manila and located within walking distance to the Greenhills Commercial Complex.
Pullman Manila at Primex Tower will boast two restaurants, a lobby lounge and rooftop bar for dramatic views across the skyline from the 50th floor. The hotel will also feature a fitness centre and swimming pool, with guests encouraged to stay on top of their game with extensive fitness offerings focussed on inspiring the mind and energising the body. Dynamic meeting and events facilities will include a ballroom, meeting rooms and a business centre designed to foster collaboration and creativity under the Pullman brand’s MEET/PLAY concept.
“We are delighted to be working with Primex Realty Corporation on this exciting Pullman property in the Philippines. The signing of this project is a great reflection of our confidence in the rebound of tourism and the continued long-term success of our industry. It is really important that we create a diverse array of accommodation options to attract travellers via our global distribution capabilities, which is why we have an expansion plan in place to boost our presence in the Philippines from 7 hotels to 23 hotels within the next five years,” said Garth Simmons, Chief Executive Officer, Accor Southeast Asia, Japan & South Korea.
