HOSPITALITY Innovators, Inc. (HII) is continuing to expand its resort portfolio, as it announced it will manage a new boutique hotel called Charlie’s El Nido in Palawan.
“HII is in its next phase of growth as it expands outside of Metro Manila and takes on more resort properties. We are fortunate to have been invited by the owners to assist them in conceptualizing and planning the product and to manage this beautiful boutique resort for them. Charlie’s El Nido is a really exciting new project for HII being located in the prime tourist destination,” Luis Monserrat, founder and chief executive officer of HII, was quoted as saying in a statement.
Charlie’s is located in Km 279 National Hi-way, Barangay Villa Libertad in El Nido. It is on track to open in January 2020. The hotel is named after the little boy of owners Juan Paolo Tumacder and Garet Bacani-Tumacder.
“We chose HII because of their impressive track record and good business practices. We have the same vision in turning Charlie’s El Nido into one of the best boutique hotels in El Nido for many years to come,” Mr. Tumacder said.
The resort will have rooms with exquisite views, a restaurant and bar, fitness center, and a spa.
“There are a number of 2- to 3-star type of accommodations in the city and resorts in Lio. What we have is a boutique hotel at a 4-star level. Charlie’s comes in at a price point that offers quality but at a lower rate compared to other resorts. With 55 rooms, it is more personalized,” Mr. Monserrat.
HII is a hotel and property management company with a portfolio of 20 hotels, resorts, condotels and serviced residences in the country.
