Swissôtel Collaborates with the Hann Group to Open its First Hotel in the PH | The First-Ever Swissôtel Opens in the PH
Along with other local travel and lifestyle writers, I was one of the lucky few who were recently invited to join the opening of the very first Swissôtel in the Philippines. This new property is a huge upgrade to the already remarkable travel and hospitality industry that Pampanga currently has. With the recent addition of Swissotel Clark, it would certainly boost Clark’s reputation as one of the must-visit travel hubs in the region.
Swissôtel Clark [hotel info] is a world-class, luxurious, and fully-integrated resort and gaming facility which was inaugurated by Central Luzon specifically in Clark, Pampanga. Also, this is in collaboration with the recent launch of another prestigious, world-class, and fully-integrated lifestyle resort, the Hann Casino Resort, which absolutely brought things to another level. With these latest developments, both of these establishments will definitely become a top-notch international destination with the ultimate goal of providing guests a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to escape out of the ordinary and live life as you’ve never even imagined.
This is the result when you combine two powerful and giant names in the industry. And I can’t help but become overjoyed with excitement because there’s definitely more to come. Are you ready? Come and join me as we both explore the splendor and extravaganza offered by the collaboration of Swissôtel and The Hann Group!
Swissotel Clark | Reimagining the Quality of Living
Swissôtel Clark offers a wide range of intelligent designs, top-notch craftsmanship, and a mindful approach to overall sustainability that will certainly impress Filipinos. The five-star international brand is proud to open its 22-story building that offers 372 elegant rooms and suites with contemporary Swiss-style design that complements the needs of discerning leisure and business travelers as well as families looking for the perfect place for a quick and relaxing getaway.
The hotel also has a wide array of 10 specialty restaurants all with exciting culinary offerings that will make every guest enjoy the best gastronomic adventure yet in their lives. There will also be 5 meeting rooms which are set to open by the 2nd quarter of 2022 where business meetings, corporate gatherings, and other events can be held with class and splendor.
There’s also a Swiss Executive Lounge, resort-style infinity pool, and a separate kiddie pool where children can safely enjoy. Lastly, there’s an Alpine-inspired Spa waiting to be opened by the 3rd quarter of the year where guests are set to experience one of the best spa and wellness treatments in the world.
With the Swissôtel brand’s unmatched reputation in offering chic and classy hotel rooms, I can’t help but raise my expectations to the highest possible level given that Swissôtel Clark’s architectural and interior design are beyond this world. Well, join me as I tell you about my firsthand experience staying at one of their Premium Rooms!
The 39-square meter room I stayed in is simply filled with splendor and extravaganza making me feel like I’m in Switzerland. You can choose to have a fantastic view of the bustling city or the peaceful scenery offered by the mountains. It is also fully equipped with top-notch facilities like a King Bed, marble bathroom, wooden floors, 55-inch LED TV, and even a minibar!
I also loved the ambiance of the room being designed with neutral color combinations and allowed me to sleep and relax perfectly. Well, who wouldn’t if you had a Posturepedic mattress to help you sleep with extra comfort?
Exciting Culinary Adventure
Of course, Swissôtel Clark’s culinary offerings are also world-class, given that the building is located in the “Culinary Capital of the Philippines”. Well, get ready to go on a gastronomical adventure because Swissôtel Clark prepared an all-star lineup of bars and restaurants that will surely satisfy your cravings.
First up, Nasi is a perfect choice for everyone who wants to taste and enjoy modern and traditional Filipino dishes that are truly mouth-watering and one-of-a-kind. This restaurant highlights the presentation of local dishes from the province of Pampanga itself. Nasi also has a bar where anyone can always order favorite thirst quenchers from cocktails, spirits, and other concoctions.
Markt, on the other hand, is a perfect choice for everyone who wants to try and taste the ever-famous Swiss cuisine. You can order all kinds of dishes here but I recommend that you try their grilled specialties. You can also have a seat at Spice and satisfy your imperial and Asian cuisine cravings with their delicious dishes.
There’s still a lot more to explore here at Swissôtel Clark and they are all worth it. There’s The Atrium and 20 where you can relax and have a nice drink. Oma’s which is perfect for sweet tooth cravings, better try their cakes and milkshakes! Kai for savory Korean specialties, and Ristorante di Verona for home-cooked Italian recipes that never go out of style!
The Swissotel Brand | Truly One of A Kind
As I’ve mentioned earlier, Swissôtel is one of the goliaths of the industry because this brand is known worldwide for its luxurious take on the freshness and vitality of Swiss hospitality. With a staggering 5,000 hotels and residences under its belt spread across 110 countries, there’s no wonder why Swissôtel belongs to Accor, a world-leading augmented hospitality group that never ceases to upgrade the standard of luxurious living all over the globe.
Swissôtel Philippines – Clark is primarily a part of Hann Casino Resort which was recently launched last December 15, 2021. Together with Swissôtel Philippines Clark, the Hann Casino, and Clark Marriott are also some of the rising stars in the area.
The iconic Wu Xing Restaurant at Clark Marriott offers world-class imperial Chinese cuisine and is the first of its brand in the country. In a few years, Mercure Hotel will also be part of the hotel and casino group and will continue to grow in Central Luzon.
Hann Casino Resort
Hann Casino Resort, the first premium sub-brand under the master brand Hann Resorts, will elevate the Philippines’ gaming, entertainment, leisure, dining, hospitality, and shopping experience. It will most certainly become a millionaire’s playground where high rollers and gaming aficionados would gather to have a luxurious night filled with splendid experiences.
Meanwhile, Hann Lux Lifestyle Resort, the second premium sub-brand of Hann Resorts, a luxury brand under HPI, is expected to launch in a few years. Hann Lux promises to offer guests even more luxurious offerings, like three 18-hole championship golf courses, Banyan Tree Hotel, Angsana Hotel, Westin Hotel, and The Luxury Collection by Marriott International.
Indeed, there is still more to expect in the coming years, and Clark, Pampanga will undoubtedly become one of the mightiest metropolia in Asia.
Exceptional Architecture and Design
What sets Hann Casino Resort apart is its exceptional architectural design that perfectly captures Clark, Pampanga’s rich natural biodiversity with its tropical forests and majestic mountains. With the help of Aedas Interiors Limiter HK, the interior design company that designed the Hong Kong International Airport, Midfield Concourse, and the iconic Langham of Shenzhen China, this spectacular vision was beautifully achieved.
These natural elements were translated into an interior design characterized by maximalist clean lines and geometric forms. The curation of layers that can be seen throughout Hann Casino’s front-of-house areas, like the lobby, embodies the various layers that can be seen in nature, creating an effect of comfort and curiosity.
Hann also worked with Forsspac, an engineering design and commissioning company focused on building services and systems, bringing development to life. Forsspac engineers used Under Floor Air Distribution (UFAD) to provide excellent air quality in the gaming areas. With this system, the air is supplied through the floor and exhausted through the ceiling.
In other areas of the development where conventional air conditioning systems are used, all recirculated air is filtered and diluted with pretreated outdoor air. With these systems in place, the Hann management assures its compliance with local requirements concerning COVID-19.
