It is good news that there is now a spate of new hotels opening in the Philippines. They create employment and encourage foreign and domestic tourists to experience something new.
At my behest TA has just added Crimson Resort and Spa, Mactan Island, Cebu (it looks to be a fairly luxurious resort) and in the next day or so will add the soon-to-open three star B Hotel, Alabang, Muntinlupa ('outer suburb' of Manila) to the TA database. The latter is associated with the more expensive Bellevue Hotel in Alabang.
If anyone stays at these establishments it would be great of they could be formally reviewed through the TA 'write a review' fearure on the TA home page. Hotel H2O's Luneta, Manila 'soft opening' was only a couple of months ago, but already a number of YTA users have kindly contributed reviews.
Cebu's Radission Blu hotel will not now open until September 2010 at the earliest from what I read. The three-star Remington Hotel at Resorts World Manila (opposite NAIA Terminal 3) seems to be a long way off from opening, as does the Hong Kong Plaza hotel in Cebu City opposite Ayala Center. Similarly the Eton development in Makati will not open 'tomorrow.'
Which other new Filipino hotels or resorts will beat these to the punch?
