Accor has announced plans to add Sofitel and Emblems properties within the Hann Lux resort in the Philippines.
The integrated resort is situated in the Clark Freeport Zone, in the country’s Central Luzon region, around 10km from Clark International airport, and two hours’ drive from Manila.
Sofitel Clark will offer 300 rooms, while Emblems Clark will have 200 rooms, and both properties will feature all-day dining and speciality restaurants, as well as swimming pools, spas, fitness centres, meetings and conferencing spaces, and executive lounges.
Accor has an established partnership with Hann, having signed agreements for Banyan Tree Clark, Angsana Clark, Mercure Clark and Swissotel Clark in 2019.
The first phase of Swissotel Clark opened in February, with the broader hotel complex set to debut later this year, featuring 372 rooms and five restaurants and bars.
Accor launched the luxury Emblems brand in 2021, stating at the time that the portfolio would feature hotels that are “emblematic of their designers, demographics or destinations”, with signature features including “luxurious surroundings, Instagram-worthy pools and vibrant public spaces”.
Guiyang Art Centre Hotel, Emblems Collection is expected to open in China towards the end of this year, and Accor is targeting 60 Emblems properties worldwide by 2030.
Commenting on the news Garth Simmons, chief executive officer, Accor, Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea, said:
“We are proud to expand our strategic relationship with Hann in this landmark multi-agreement signing. This reaffirms the trust and confidence owners place in Accor, our relationship driven-approach towards partners, and the popularity of our brands powered by strong distribution and lifestyle loyalty platforms.
“We are also thrilled and extremely proud to introduce two very special properties to vibrant Clark. Sofitel Clark and Emblems Clark will both bring an iconic sense of luxury to Hann Lux, and we are delighted to be working with our valued partners, Hann Philippines, to bring their unique vision to life.”
