New World Hotels will begin managing the Hyatt Regency Hotel & Casino Manila from January 1, 2015.
The hotel, which will be rebranded as New World Manila Bay Hotel, will be the second New World-branded property in the Philippines capital, joining New World Makati Hotel.
As the company looks to triple its portfolio in the next five years, eight new projects have been announced – most of which will be based in mainland China. These include new properties in Guiyang (2014), Shenyang (2015), Foshan (2015), Langfang (2016), Zhengzhou (2016), Qingyuan (2017) and Haikou (2019). New World Manila Bay Hotel is the only new property that will be based outside of the mainland.
Located in the Malate Manila district, the hotel is located close to several government offices, the US Embassy and Chinatown. The city’s domestic and international airports are roughly 30 minutes away by car, while the port terminal is only ten minutes from the hotel.

Along with the rebrand, New World Hotels will oversee an extensive renovation programme of the Manila property, which will include changes to the guestrooms and public spaces, although the broad range of facilities is expected to stay the same.
Currenty, the hotel offers 378 guestrooms, including 63 suites, and designated executive floors and lounge. There are also six dining options including a café, Chinese restaurant, steakhouse, lobby lounge, poolside bar and pastry shop.
Meeting spaces include a grand ballroom and four meeting rooms, while recreational options are an outdoor pool, a spa and fitness centre. The hotel is also part of a complex that features a 13935sqm casino.
