Vibrant living in the Queen City

June 17, 2019

Citadines Cebu will open in the third quarter of 2019, seeking to give the Queen City’s already bustling tourism scene, a boost.

A serviced residence providing top-notch accommodations with efficient service, it is just what business and leisure travelers want from the Philippines’ fastest-growing hub. With a brand-new airport, a robust business climate, and a steady influx of travelers, Cebu has become one of the largest and fastest-growing business districts in the Philippines. At the heart of the city, they continue to harness economic potential with many businesses emerging in various industries such as trade, manufacturing, business process outsourcing (BPO), and real estate.

Ascott Limited (Ascott) partnered with developer Cebu Landmasters Inc. (CLI) to build Citadines Cebu.  Once operational, it will be the fourth Citadines Apart’hotel property in the Philippines, joining Citadines Salcedo Makati, Citadines Millennium Ortigas Manila, and Citadines Bay City Manila.

Citadines Cebu offers spacious apartments with all the conveniences of a modern home and the services of a hotel. Functionality and sustainability guided the designers of the hotel, and these come alive in its efficient design and space planning, as well as the use of eco-friendly and easy to maintain materials. Small details and accent pieces provide a relaxed vibe to remind guests of the comforts of home.

Local, fun, functional

The serviced residence showcases works and accent pieces by local craftsmen and artists in vibrant spaces. The goal is to achieve a balance between promoting international contemporary interiors with a local flavour––making it a unique destination.

“We see great interest in Cebu, especially among young professionals and business travelers who combine their business and leisure goals at the same time,”  said Daniel Wee, country general manager for The Ascott Limited Philippines. “Citadines Cebu City is targeting young, independent travelers who are visiting Cebu and desire modern comforts, business connectivity and customized services,”

Synergistic tie-up

Citadines is Ascott’s fastest growing brand while CLI has risen to become one of the leading developers in the Visayas and Mindanao regions, and among the top ten in the Philippines. They share the same values and commitment toward delivering world-class properties and customer service. The alliance’s goal is to have 1,600 units in place by 2022 in key cities such as Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, Davao, Dumaguete, and Iloilo in the next few years.

“We’re confident that Ascott will further invigorate the Visayas and Mindanao area in the next few years, by providing the options that travelers are looking for,” Wee averred.
