The first integrated lifestyle resort in Clark will be a world-class international destination
The millionaire mindset is to work hard, and play harder. This is the elevated lifestyle that will be offered by Hann Resorts, which sets up its brand footprint in the Philippines with its carefully curated mix of activities and experiences in gaming, golf, nature and outdoors, entertainment, and hospitality within an ultra-luxe integrated resort environment.
With its luxury playground concept, Hann Resorts is bringing the idea of a “millionaire’s playground” to life in Clark, Pampanga and the New Clark City (NCC), Tarlac. It elevates the leisure experience with its premium sub-brands Hann Casino Resort and Hann Lux Luxury Resort, combined to make it truly the ultimate luxury playground north of Metro Manila.
Gateway to leisurely pursuits
The Hann brand’s unique DNA is set to change the leisure and entertainment landscape at the northern gateway that is Clark in the coming years. The existing Clark Marriott Hotel which has become popular for its 5-star service with business and leisure tourists to Pampanga, will be joined by the Hann Casino and Swissôtel brands by the last quarter of 2020. Meanwhile, the Widus Hotel & Casino shall be transformed into the global brand Mercure Hotel by 2022, and the rebranding of the entire Widus complex into the Hann Casino Resort, Clark’s first truly integrated resort brand, will be completed.
Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts offers contemporary hotels infused with the freshness and vitality of alpine energy, rooted in the tradition of Swiss hospitality. The Mercure brand’s unwavering commitment to quality ensures a consistent and reliable standard of service, while the design of each Mercure hotel reflects the distinct character and culture of its location. Swissôtel and Mercure are part of Accor, a world-leading augmented hospitality group offering unique experiences in 5,000 hotels and residences across 110 countries.
For those who want to tee off in a challenging course, the Hann Lux Luxury Resort in NCC will soon offer the opportunity to enjoy the ultimate golfing experience at its three 18-hole championship golf courses. These are definitely the greens set to excite serious golfers, as the first golf course will be by Nicklaus Design, the world-renowned leader in golf course design and innovations; the second golf course will be designed by South Korean professional golfer KJ Choi who, since turning pro, has won a total of twenty professional golf tournaments worldwide, including eight on the PGA Tour, and is considered to be the most successful golfer in all of Asia; while the third golf course will be the Sir Nick Faldo Signature Golf Course designed and named after the pro English golfer who is known for his dedication to the game and who was ranked as number one in his era.
Part of the improvements and expansions that would take place is an elite golf experience at three 18-hole championship golf courses. There are also exclusive gaming rooms, relaxing wellness recreation facilities, tranquil pool villas, and a lavish tropical garden spa that certainly would make this place an oasis of well-being, entertainment and luxury.
Travelers who seek a more relaxing retreat can soon head for Banyan Tree Hotel, with its all-villa accommodations. The concept will feature tranquil pool villas for a relaxing dip and a tropical garden spa as a way to escape the stress of city living. Larger groups of families and friends will enjoy a more vibrant stay at the nearby Agsana Hotel with its wide range of recreational activities that are perfect for fun bonding moments.
The vision is to offer a concept of world-class leisure and lifestyle experiences within a beautiful Filipino setting. Daesik Han, President and CEO of Hann Development Corporation, a member of the Widus Consortium, says that Hann Resorts will not only bring high-end international brands to the country, but it will also showcase the global Filipino lifestyle and culture.
The integrated lifestyle and leisure resort brand fits perfectly well as a destination for those who are traveling for business or those who seek exceptional recreational activities within a well-planned “luxury playground”. These concepts from the Widus Group and its partners will offer exciting choices for leisure seekers looking to game, golf, play, and indulge in world-class facilities for the ultimate in fun.
