Best Western’s expansion in the Philippines continues with a new property which is scheduled to open in June 2016.
Best Western Plus Ivy Wall is a brand new midscale hotel in Puerto Princesa, the largest city on the tropical island of Palawan, in the Philippines. It is located just a few minutes from Puerto Princesa International Airport, which has regular flight connections to Manila and other cities across the Philippines, and 1.5 hours’ drive from the stunning, UNESCO World Heritage-listed Puerto Princesa Underground River.
“Puerto Princesa and the island of Palawan are becoming new tourist hotspots in Southeast Asia, with an increasing number of travelers eager to experience this tropical paradise. With idyllic beaches and bays and the breath-taking Puerto Princesa Underground River, which has been listed as one of the ‘New 7 Wonders of Nature’, Puerto Princesa is a wonderfully unique and attractive destination for tourists.” Olivier Berrivin, Best Western Hotels & Resorts’ Managing Director of International Operations – Asia said.
A modern midscale hotel, Best Western Plus Ivy Wall offers 120 rooms and suites, all of which feature a contemporary Filipino design and come equipped with 42-inch LCD televisions, DVD players, mini-bars, spacious work desks and complimentary tea and coffee making facilities.
And as with all Best Western hotels worldwide, Wi-Fi is free-of-charge both in guest rooms and public areas.
For the corporate and events market, the hotel features a business center, three meeting rooms and a 300m² ballroom, plus a VIP dining room which is served by a private butler and can host intimate dinners.
Best Western Plus Ivy Wall becomes the eighth Best Western hotel in the Philippines, joining existing properties in Manila, Makati City, Cebu City, Subic Bay and the resort island of Boracay.
It also becomes the country’s fourth midscale Best Western Plus hotel, following the Best Western Plus Antel Hotel in Makati City, Best Western Plus Lex Cebu and the recently-opened Best Western Plus Hotel Subic.
