Everyone deserves to take a break and have the time to unwind and rest. We consider ‘self-care’ as having a staycation on a hotel offering cozy bedrooms, scrumptious food buffet, and of course, soothing and relaxing massages.
While there are a number of luxurious hotels offering this kind of experience, the traffic congestion in the metro already stresses us out. Mr. Daesik Han, the President, and CEO of Hann Development Corporation saw this as an opportunity and unveiled Hann Resorts, an all-new integrated resort brand that elevates the luxury experience in Clark, Pampanga and New Clark City, Tarlac.
“Our vision is to raise the concept of play into a lifestyle that people would want to discover through world-class experiences,” shared by Mr. Han on their exclusive launch event last February 25, 2020. Among the distinguished guests who attended this remarkable milestone are Richard Yap and Tessa Prieto-Valdes.
As the night progressed, Mr. Han associates Hann Resorts as the “millionaire’s playground” by offering a curated mix of gaming, golf, nature and outdoors, entertainment and hospitality activities and experience.
The Hann Resorts is a collection of equally premium sub-brands: Hann Casino Resort and Hann Lux Lifestyle Resort. The Hann Casino Resort is the product of the rebranding of the Widus complex. In the last quarter of 2020, Hann Casino and the Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts will be opened, while the Widus Hotel and Casino shall be converted to the Mercure Hotel after the renovation in 2022.
For enthusiasts of golf, you can look forward to playing in Hann Lux Lifestyle Resort’s three 18-hole championship golf courses. Nicklaus Design, KJ Choi and Sir Nick Faldo are set to design the courses, aiming for it to become the ultimate destination for a luxurious golf experience.
If you want to experience ultimate relaxation with family and friends, you can do so at the award-winning luxury hospitality brands—Banyan Tree Hotel and Angsana Hotel. From the lavish tropical garden spa, relaxing wellness recreation facilities, to tranquil pool villas, you can immerse in the perfect sanctuary.
The next phase of building this integrated resort will include Westin Hotel and The Luxury Collection by Marriott International. These will house signature amenities to empower your well-being with their programs: RunWestin and Move Well, Eat Well and Sleep Well.
With all these on-going projects in the north, we can’t help but get excited. Promising as it is, these developments will change the hospitality industry not only in Clark, Pampanga and New Clark City, Tarlac, but also in Metro Manila. This is a start to bringing a dramatic impact of high-end international brands into the country and, at the same time, elevating the Filipino culture and lifestyle to a global scale.
