Lanson Place, a familiar name in Hong Kong hospitality, is opening its first property in the Philippines later this year. Lanson Place Mall of Asia was first announced in July 2019, and after four years, the new boutique hotel is scheduled to open within the sprawling Mall of Asia grounds in Pasay City.
The new hotel property is a partnership between Lanson Place Hospitality Management Limited (LPHML) and SM Hotels and Conventions Corp., which is a unit of the Sy family’s SM Investments Corp. It will have 247 hotel rooms and 142 serviced residences and located in the same area as the SMX Convention Center, Ikea, the Mall of Asia Arena, and of course, the SM Mall of Asia itself. Using NAIAX, the property is also just 15 minutes away from the airport.
Lanson Place Mall of Asia will have facilities that include an all-day dining restaurant, a fitness center, and a rooftop swimming pool with a full view of the Manila Bay. It will also have a ballroom that can accommodate a maximum of 800 guests, which is ideal for mid-sized events, plus an al fresco facility on the podium that can cater to more intimate events.
"Expanding into Manila is an exciting milestone for Lanson Place," said Michael Hobson, CEO of Lanson Place. "We see enormous potential in this dynamic city, and we are confident that Lanson Place Mall of Asia will quickly become the preferred destination for discerning travellers seeking luxury, contemporary accommodation."
"Lanson Place Hotel and Serviced Suites Mall of Asia will be an outstanding addition to the SM Hotels and Conventions Corp (SMHCC) portfolio," said SMHCC President Elizabeth Sy during the groundbreaking of the property back in 2019. "Its anticipated opening of the property underscores the expanding footprint of SMHCC and will be an added boost in the booming Philippine hospitality industry."
SMHCC currently has a portfolio of nine properties, including Conrad Manila, Taal Vista Hotel in Tagaytay, Park Inn by Radisson in Bacolod, Clark, Davao, Iloilo, and North EDSA, and Radisson Blu in Cebu.
Meanwhile, Lanson Place Hospitality Management was founded in Hong Kong in 1995 to provide residents, guests, and accompanying family members "a place to call home no matter where they are."
Besides Hong Kong, LPHML has manages properties in Malaysia, Singapore, and soon, in Australia.2023-09-23T08:03:33Z dg43tfdfdgfd
