A new mixed-use development

This impressive new hotel will house two restaurants, a lobby lounge, an executive floor lounge and a rooftop bar. Aimed at both business and leisure travellers, the property will also feature a business centre, spa, fitness centre and swimming pool, while its extensive meeting room and ballroom offering will cater for a variety of events.

The hotel will be conveniently located within a landmark mixed-use tower, designed by SOM, in Cebu Business Park.

“We believe that Cebu is a destination with enormous potential,” said Jose Soberano III, CEO of Cebu Landmasters. “Sofitel Cebu City will ensure that we can offer both corporate and leisure travellers a luxury offering in the central business district of this prosperous port capital.

“We are confident that the hotel’s excellent array of entertainment amenities and business offerings will ensure that Sofitel Cebu City becomes a hub of hospitality in this key destination.”

One of the leading international operators in the Philippines, Accor has seven hotels across three of the country’s regions, with 17 more committed projects in the pipeline. Its new Cebu City property will join a growing portfolio of more than 120 Sofitel hotels and resorts around the world.
